This looks to be a DJ-3A converted to 4WD, among other changes. Has a Kelly hardtop. Thanks to John for sharing it.

“Runs, drives, stops, plows(kinda). Needs battery. Frame is very solid. Body isnt in very good condition but not horrible and floor is decently solid. Had 290 v8 put in at one point and i have no idea the mileage. It leaks coolant from the radiator cap and hydraulic fluid from one of the plow hoses but you can just take the plow off cause it’s not very useful. I just put a new fuel pump in it. It’s a 3 speed manual that shifts into all gears easily. It’s old as hell so it’s obviously not perfect. I was told that most its life it was just a farm truck. I got it as a project but i have too many going on and need to clear some vehicles off the property. I have the title from the previous owner and bill of sale. Would like it gone sooner rather than later so shoot me an offer. (i have the door for the back but it’s missing a hinge so i took it off)”

    It would be neat to have a switch of the original seat material as a sample for restorations.

    Was the tailgate a special order option? I suppose a standard DJ-3A body with a tailgate could have been used in place of the standard DJ-3A body.

    Look closely at the rear photo. That was not a tailgate model. That whole back panel has been replaced by sheet metal or plate. There is no framing or chain rests, hinge holes, etc to accommodate a tgate. And a pc of sheet metal sticks up and overlaps the cab on the right side. Actually, if you look at the rear sides, it appears the whole rear outside of the tub has been replaced. Finally, in that day, Jeep would build any modification you special ordered, some of which would be done in their customizing shop on campus. Just not with this one with what we see.
