The Jolly & Renault: Competitors to the DJ-3A Surrey

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles, Unusual • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Glenn spotted this unusual competitor to the DJ-3A Surrey.  The seller calls it a Jolly, though the magazine picture below suggests it is actually the Renault (thanks DC).  The one shown below has been in the Newport Beach area for years and was once owned by the founder of Armor All. It is up for auction on eBay.

Included in the Auction is a picture of a Mechanix article that discusses the DJ-3A Surrey, the Jolly and a Renault Beach Wagon.  I tried to find the original article, but couldn’t.  However, I did the other Modern Mechanix articles about jeeps listed in the posts below this one.  Great stuff!

    Now that I look closer I believe you are right .. So the seller listed it wrong. Good catch.

    I learned to drive in a brown Renault Surrey. That was in about 1960, so the car had to have been a model from the 50’s.
