The rear of this has been stretched. It includes kennels for hunting dogs. This was for sale back in 2013, but there were not pics of it at the time. This is how the seller described it in that post: “1955 Willys quail jeep with stretch body. Dog boxes and high rise back set and front scouting seats mounted to front bumper. Not perfect or pretty, but runs strong and gets the job done.”

“Runs good changed out the condenser points and rotary button fuel tank needs to be cleaned and it will be ready to hunt again it’s a cj3b”
