Year? DJ-3A Durango, CO $8500


UPDATE II: Price dropped to $8500.

UPDATE: This has bounced around on price. It was listed as a 1947, but now has no year. It seems to me to be a later model DJ-3A (has the passenger side vent). Overall, it does seem to be in good shape.

(06/25/2019) It  listed as a 1947, but looks all DJ-3A. Looks like fun.

    The serial number will tell the story on this Jeep. Could it have been one of the Pepsi Surreys that wound up in Colorado during a Boy Scout Jamboree in the early 60s?

    I think the seller is in a hurry to sell. To me it seems easily worth the asking price of $5k.

    Stripes o not make a Gala or a Surry, since it has a tailgate. The seller is “guessing the year” based on Surry/Gala years, but the vin (???) doesn’t apply, and the associated registration should indicate the year. Dave’s comment above references an “asking price of $5K”, but the listing now shows $10K??? with “appraisals from $16K-25K”??? Looks like a solid DJ3A.

    Steve … yep, that’s pretty much the situation … the price has bounced from $9k, down to $5k, and now up to $10k.

    The VIN is either not complete or incorrect as a DJ3A number, the tailgate wouldn’t apply for a Surrey and it looks to have the smaller 13 inch wheels from. 63-64, states it has overdrive, which wasn’t offered in the DJs, but may have been added later. Without further documentation from the seller, it is difficult to tell what year it is and what modifications are unseen.
