This thread is about my 1953 CJ3B that I have had for a long time. It has been everywhere, many times. It is time for some upgrades. But first, a little background. It came from Minden, Nevada, just down the street from my dad's shop, found in a back yard. This is how I found it in 1999. It was a time capsule, last registered 15 years earlier. Parked when it stopped running. $750 later, I got the title and dragged it up to my dad's. It was a good candidate for a build, the body and frame were good, and I didn't care about the drivetrain. The dash was pretty unmolested. First thing I did was to remove the original 134 F head, T90 3 speed, and put them up for sale. Then I dug up a 225 to rebuild. I mated the V6 to a SM420 with a Novak adapter, and it was ready to go in. Boxed the frame, new V6 motor mounts, and Saginaw power steering mount and tunnel for the shaft.
