Here you go, took a bit, Kaiser bought Willys in 53, so maybe someone swapped in the Kaiser-Frazer Supersonic engine.

The Henry J's used a KF Super Sonic head on a Willy's 4 cyl block, same block used from the 40's into the 60's on the jeeps.

The conversion came about as the original Continental engines were deemed under powered, so the Willy/ KF conversion came about.
