1958 DJ-3A Austin, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2100.

Has a Toyota 20R engine.

“My father-in-law and I recently bought a 1958 Willys with the intent to fix up or sale. We agreed that we would post it for sale before we tore into it too much, so that’s exactly what I’m doing. We bought it at an estate sale in Fredericksburg from a young man who said the Willys belonged to his great grandpa, but we have NO TITLE on it. Usually this would have been a red flag for me but after a quick search I found that it wasn’t that rare of an occasion to not have a title on one this age. The serial number tag is still intact on the firewall.

We put a decent set of used tires on it so we could roll it and pull it. I pulled it from Fredericksburg to Round Rock and it was just fine. There is rust all over but most of the body rust seems surface deep. There is some rust in spots on the frame, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed. I can’t tell you everything that is wrong, I’ve only had it for a little over a week.

It has a Toyota R20 motor and the standard transmission shifts into gear. I have keys for it but haven’t tried to start it yet because the young man said it had been sitting for years.

You are more than welcome to come check it out if you want to see something that isn’t pictured. Again, there is NO TITLE and I am only posting this before I start digging into it myself.”

    I’m trying to get info now for our DJ3A Production / Survivor List. Looks quite solid. Don’t think we’ve seen it before.

    Called Edward’s number but got no answer and his voice mailbox is full, so couldn’t leave a msg. I don’t think we have seen this one yet, but once we have the serial number, we will know for sure.
