• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY:: It’s not clear to me why this DJ-3A is listed on a UK site or whether this is a real ad, but it’s an interesting DJ-3A none-the-less. What I think has happened is that the description and photos may have been scraped from eBay. I looked for this jeep on eBay, but could not find it.

“First of all. must start by saying that this NOT a post office jeep. In 1955 &1956 Willys put  out this vehicle & called  it a Jeep Dispatcher / Delivery vehicle . deal for use in congested metropolitan areas. To me it’s just a cool little jeep. This jeep had a frame off restoration a couple years back. t that time the original owner changed the transmission from a manual 3 speed synchromesh to a turbo 350 automatic with a 6 volt system. The original transmission is included. very nut &bolt was saved just incase to switch it back. The jeep is in great shape & runs good. Just had it inspected in may 2013. can’t think of anything it needs. esides maybe a tune up.   $500. Paypal deposit is required at end of auction. Balance to be paid within 7 days with postal mo. ank check or cash. Buyer is responsible for arranging shipping. I’ll be glad to assist in loading or working with you. Contact me with any questions .”

    You’re right Dave, I’ve seen this Dispatcher posted about 3 years ago, and at that time, it was as I remember Long Island, NYC.

    This DJ3A has been at several Jeep get togethers in the past few years. I don’t think it is a 1956, as the early hardtops had the original small door openings. The small rear window is indicative that it might be a later 57 or very early 58 before the larger window was used. The serial number would be an indicator. This really is a nice DJ3A.

    I have a question about the small vs. big openings. I will email you separately about a pic I found.

    I’ve been in love with this little jeep for years. I first saw it on eBay being sold by the owner that did the rebuild. At that time it was in Pa bay be a year later I saw this add on eBay. I’d love to own it.

    I would be leery of this ad. If one of our readers is more familiar with this Jeep, it would be helpful to learn more about it. Th350 trans would be unusual, but a Borg Warner behind the L-134 would make more sense. This has been at several Jeep shows in the past and it is very nice.
