1960 DJ-3A Surrey To Be Auctioned Jan 2017

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features • TAGS: , .

This 1960 DJ-3A Surrey will be auctioned in January of 2017 by Sotheby’s. The jeep is described as a “beautifully presented flawless restoration”. That statement is followed by a series of inaccurate statements regarding the history of DJ-3A, such as the DJ-3A was introduced in 1955 (nope 1956). You can see all the pics and information here: http://www.rmsothebys.com/lots/lot.cfm?lot_id=1081316

1960-dj3a

As Colin pointed out to Sotheby’s, despite some great work on this, there are actually numerous flaws with this restoration:

  1. Front bumper is from a 1948-49 Willys Jeepster, way too wide for a DJ3A Surrey.
  2. Valance panel behind the front bumper is too long, as it has to cover the Willys Jeepster front bumper brackets.
  3. Air filter is from a 1945-1949 Willys CJ2A 4WD Jeep and is made by Oakes.  The correct air filter should be either a small 7 inch dry air filter attached to the carburetor alone or a Donaldson oil bath air filter that attaches in the same position as the Oakes filter on this Jeep.
  4. The Fram oil filter is of the larger heavy duty unit, not the smaller one used by the civilian 4 cylinder Jeeps from 1946-1964.
  5. The windshield straps are incorrect, using webbed belts instead of vinyl with center buckle and three grommets, no additional adjusters on the straps at all.
  6. Windshield grab handles were chrome on Surreys, as were the side mirrors.
  7. The rear bumper is 1948-49 Willys Jeepster, has Willys Overland stamped into the center of the bumper and is too wide for a Surrey.  Surrey chrome bumpers were plain, without  the Willys Overland script.  Willys dropped the Overland part of the scripting for the 1950 models, but kept the Willys script on the 1950-51 Jeepsters and station wagon rear bumpers from 1950 through 1963 when the last of the old square bodies were used and the new Wagoneer station wagon debuted.
  8. The speedometer reads in kilometers, rather than miles per hour.  Surreys and all DJ3A Jeep speedometers read in miles per hour and calibrated from 0 through 9 after 1958.  0-8 for 1956- early 1958.  Kilometers were used on export Jeeps.

1952 CJ-3A Richland, WA $7700

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

I saw this one in progress a few years ago while purchasing a manifold. It’s a good price.

“Original 1952 CJ3A survivor Willys Jeep. Less than 10500 original miles. 3rd owner. This jeep was purchased new by a college in Northern California and spent most of its life on campus. This jeep still is the original Normandy Blue paint from the factory. The body is still the original steel body with zero rust.

I took the body off the frame and redid everything as far as the running gear goes. The motor is rebuilt, new pistons, cam, rings bearings, clutch, valves etc. New brakes, brake lines and seals. The tires are like new in the original size 15 inch.

It has an overdrive. It has never had seatbelts installed or a roll bar. I have the original rear step bumper for it that was dealer installed in 1952.

The jeep did not come with a heater but I have an original Harrison heater that needs to be restored ; it also has an original factory 6 volt heater switch.

It comes with a Koenig hardtop in pieces that need to be restored. I have a “Tight Steer” for the steering box that is not installed. It has cutlass pwr lock hubs on it and comes with a set of “Warn” summer hubs from the 50’s.

Seats have been redone to original and it still is 6 volt and has the foot starter. All original gauges and they work.

ALA tail lights”

1944 MB Lexington, KY $18,500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Sellers failed to get a state grant to complete restoration of this one.

“An authentic, 1944 U.S. Army 4cyl, Willys MB Jeep, VIN#
MB 383450 with just over 26,000 original miles. It is completely operational with many accessories, including the top, spare, tools and implements. We have brought the jeep up to approximately 90-95% operation and appearance. This jeep is show worthy but runs a little rough, determined to be a minor problem by my mechanic. The driver\’s seat was extended with a kit for steering wheel and leg comfort. I can also provide to a serious buyer all that was invested in the restoration.

We are selling this Willys MB because, we were unable to get any Kentucky grant funding for acquisition and the full restoration; Our personal investment had reached its limit.”
