    Best way to tell is with the vin #.
    The 3B has a high hood & flat fenders. All early CJs had side mount spares & fuel tanks under the drivers seat.

    It's a can mount driver side and fender aren't flat but it looks to be complete no top but there never is. It has jeep stamped on the front I have never seen that not on any year even tried to find one online. The other jeep I found has flat fenders it's a 53 rust bucket still on tires but no interior for 600.00

    The CJ 3b looks like mine here... The Willys CJ 5 was sold from 1955 to 1971. After '71 AMC bought Jeep and STRETCHED the CJ 5 several inches to put the Inline 6 in them. The Willys Jeep should have Willys stamped on the tailgate and have willys or Kaiser Willys or Kaiser Jeep on the Vin plate. The Willys jeeps also have a filler below the driver's door for fuel.
    Note in the photo the tail gate is stamped "Willys"

    I don't recall what year Willys motor co. became Kaiser Willys and then when they again changed to Kaiser Jeep. That one there is a 1955 to 1967 and probably NOT the later 68-71 of the Kaiser era. Kaiser bought Willys-Overland in 51 and changed the name to Willys Motor Co., then Kaiser Willys Co., then Kaiser Jeep Co. The steering column/wheel is Pontiac and is a modification. The Stock motor will be either a F-134 inline 4 cyl Hurricane or a Buick odd fire V6 dauntless. If it came with a 6 it is mid 60 era. NICE JEEP!!!

    I'd say it's a "66 to "68 with a 4cyl eng. No battery box on the top of the cowl says it's "66 or later. No side marker lights says it's pre "69. Dual x-fer case levers says it's a not a V6. Overall the pictures make it look like a pretty good starting point if the price is right.
