“Willys FJ3 for sale. These cute little vans were made to deliver mail. Very rare. I have read that only 1824 were made in 1962. They were designed to be driven standing up as the gas “pedal” is a horizontal push instead of up and down. It does have a seat. The 4 cylinder/automatic transmission combination is very fuel efficient. This one runs and the transmission shifts. The fuel tank was pulled, cleaned and painted. The body is in great shape with no rust. The previous owner tried to put in LED lights and made a mess of the wiring. The brake master cylinder, (a common part) needs replaced. One of the windows has some cracks. The wood back door is a roll up design and the wood is rotted and in need of replacement. We got it for an ice cream truck for my wife’s ice cream business. She got hired at Costco, so it never was put on the road. The paperwork is a Vermont bill of sale. This is sufficient to get a title. We also have an original owners manual, which is extremely rare. With a little tlc, someone can have an extremely rare, cute little van.”

    What ever happened to that guy who posted about a year ago, that he was producing or selling N.O.S. body panels for Fleetvans? Did this venture ever get off the ground. It was a F/B posting covered here on EWILLYS.

    Mike, I haven’t heard anything from him. I visited his FB post the other day, but didn’t see any updates either.

    I’ve never noticed a military data plate on a FJ-3 before. Was that US military data plate something they did for FJ-3’s in USPS service? Usually only military vehicles get a US property plate.

    I’m no expert, but I question if that IS A MILITARY data plate. To me, that data plate just specifics made to U.S government contract.

    JW,

    I agree with Mike. It’s most likely a GOV contract plate rather than a military plate. The Department of Interior and other gov agency jeeps have also sported gov plates.

    Gents, I see it now. Upon zooming in on a larger screen I see in line two, it even says “Post Office”. Still a neat detail on this van.
