Wanted: Hardtop for the DJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Mitchell is looking for a DJ-3A hardtop for his DJ-3A Dispatcher. He’s located in the midwest. Since he has the delivery body and windshield, the best match might be the Koenig made tops with the sliding doors. Here’s Mitchell’s project:


Here’s the hardtop that would work with his windshield. These pics come from the CJ-3B page:


This is the standard delivery top with out a rear window.


This is the CJ-5 version. The window ads extra visibility. I’m pretty sure that this top will fit the DJ as well. Anyone actually tried this?

    Mitchell–I am in the process of restoring my 1957 DJ3A hardtop, but I need the body. Mine is pretty rough and dinged up. If you decide you want to go in another direction and don’t need the delivery body, I can make you an offer. I’m located in Dayton, Ohio.

    Hey Michael,

    Thanks for the offer. I am going to keep the body. Currently relocating the gas tank and have a rebuilt hurricane 4 engine that is in. No going back now haha. If you decide to get rid of your hardtop please let me know ASAP.

    Oh, delivery body…..yes. The doors do not slide though. They are hinged. How can I contact you and get some pics to you.

    Sometimes the doors could be switched between swinging and sliding. I don’t know if all these tops had the ability to switch between them. The top with the solid rear panels would be correct for the DJ-3A Dispatcher.
