Las Brisas Brochure W/ DJ-5s

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features • TAGS: .

This 1966 brochure for the Las Brisas resort included some pics of Surreys. What I always thought were CJ-5s, turn out to be DJ-5s (and not the postal kind)! Note the four-lug wheel in one of the pics (see the top pic, lower right).


Here’s a DJ-5 with hubcaps.

We’ve seen this “bar jeep” featured in a photo from another angle.1966-las-brisas-dj5-surrey1-lores

Pvt Oscar Green of Taylorville, Illinois, stands on the side of his jeep to get close up view of this caution sign, one of many which dot the Ledo road forming junction with the Burma road and breaking Japanese land blockade of China which has officially been named the Stilwell Road.Photo measures 9 x 7.25 inches.

1953? CJ-3A/M-38 Taylor Ranch, NM $4000


Seller describes this as a 1953 CJ-3A. It may be a CJ-3A chassis and M-38 body (seller indicates the body is “new”). It lacks the holes necessary to mount the M-38 grille hinges to the frame.

“This jeep is a 1953 cj3a, but it now has a brand new body tub that is a m38 body. Its just primered to stop from rusting. Lots of new parts rebuilt tcase, and trany diffs have been gone through. The engine turns but hasent been gone through. Its all stock has a doner frame from another jeep. Its like 90%, it does need wireing figured out, or just put new wireing harneses. Also needs brakes looked at, the spring kits were replaced i think not adjusted properly. It stops on one wheel but pedal goes to floor.

We have clear title. Most work was done buy Savios fwd in albuquerque at the time. We dont have the time or money to finnish it. It does retain the factory gauges. The shifters were also cromed out. All the original seats, willys tailgate, no back seat. Some one could easily finish this with alittle time. We got with the intention on converting it to a v8, but would requier to many mods. Plus its a small jeep. Its all original drive train numbers match on diffs, trany engine ect. Some one needs to finish it off.”

1953 CJ-3A APU Salem, OR $3500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3500.

TJ’s got this APU for sale. It’s missing the APU portion, but does have the gauges and hood.

1952-cj3a-apu-salem-or5 1952-cj3a-apu-salem-or6 1952-cj3a-apu-salem-or7
“This is a solid 1952 Willys Jeep. It runs well and is drivable, but will need some brake work before it’s ready for the road. It has the overhead valve engine. The hood scoop is because it was updated by the military to the overhead valve engine from a flathead, and more room was needed for the carburetor.

I’m no expert, but here is a brief description of the APU conversion. They were converted by two companies for the military, O.E. Szekely and the Valentine Welder and Manufacturing Company. The APU stands for auxiliary power unit, and they were also called jet starter jeeps. The military converted these Jeeps for use in the Navy and Air Force. They were used among other things to start jet aircraft. There were a few variations, they made both 3 and 4 wheeled versions.

The right seat and factory toolbox underneath it were removed, and a pto was run up thru the floor towards the right seat well, to power the generator. I will attach a picture showing one, and here is a link to get you started: [ed note … fine but slightly dated article at this point. I need to update that]

1947 CJ-2A Phoenix, AZ $2500


It’s a project. I thought at first the hardtop was a Porter & Reed model, but the curved rear of the roof isn’t standard for that model, unless this is some later version that we don’t have documented.

“Rough but a good starting point. No drivetrain. No title but will do a bill of sale, bonded title should be easy on this. Comes with aluminum hardtop and steel doors with glass…..”
