Looks like a Jeep CJ-3B.

Yes, but as we are in Spain it is a licence built Willys-Viasa CJ-3B, later renamed Jeep-Viasa CJ-3B, built by VIASA (VehÝculos Industriales y AgrÝcolas, S.A.), a division of C.A.F., from 1960 on.

VIASA was later taken over by Ebro (Motors Iberica) and they used the name 'Jeep Ebro' or 'Jeep Bravo' for the diesel engined version. I think the Ebro made vehicles had square rear lights, unlike this one here.

We have few listed as Viasa Jeep CJ-something, with Jeep in the model, should this be listed in the same way? (with Willys in model)

After a first superficial glance at all those with 'Viasa' or 'Avia' in the name, I can say that some should be Willys-Viasa, some probably Jeep-Viasa, some Jeep-Ebro, and some were not made in Spain at all.

I guess I (or someone else) should take some time to sort it out.

Spanish-built Jeep-Viasa CJ3B. Canary yellow body colour and black winshield were the most typical factory colours for the Viasa jeeps. In reality, Viasa was never taken over by Motor IbÚrica, there was an agreement between the two companies, and the jeeps were merely branded and sold as Jeep Ebro and Jeep Avia (the two Motor IbÚrica truck brands). The one on the pictures carries the usual Jeep name in the hood sides, and the black and aluminium Jeep Ebro or Jeep Avia at the front. The Bravo was the last model built, with some refinements and marketed towards the public as a today SUV. Harsh ride but very tough and fun vehicle :)
