1965 CJ-5 Tux Park IV “Surrey” Lake Murray, SC $38,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: .

Ted shared this unusual blend of a Surrey and a Tux Park. It sure looks nice. The seller doesn’t mention that the Surrey upgrades are incorrect for this model, but the seller is correct that if you want something unique to bring to a jeep event, this qualifies.

“1965 Jeep CJ-5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV – An “upscale” Jeep was named after the upscale Tuxedo Park in New York, which was the birthplace of the tuxedo. Elvis drove a similar Jeep in the 1965 movie “Tickle Me” which also starred Julie Adams. Tuxedo Park Jeeps were also driven in President Lyndon Johnson’s inaugural parade in January, 1965.

This special edition Jeep came standard with chrome bumpers, wheel covers, column shift, fold-down rear license plate, fold-down windshield, and a little more highway-friendly rear gear. Standard running gear is a 4-cylinder engine and 3-Speed manual transmission. Optional equipment on this one includes the surrey interior & top, 4-Wheel-drive, and “full” passenger seat. It has been retrofitted with seat belts for safety. Just like Elvis’ Tuxedo Park, this one is finished in Marlin Blue. Continue reading

Keith shared this Surrey Tribute CJ-2A. The seller incorrectly notes that the DJ-3A was originally used as a postal truck. Instead, they were built as cheap and economic delivery vehicles.

Camping & The JeepGalaSurrey site

• CATEGORIES: Features

ann-crab

This quick post will cover two unrelated topics.

  1. Ann and I decided to go camping for a couple days. Unfortunately, I couldn’t escape the internet, even out here. So, I will be checking email, but responding little. I already have some posts ready for the next couple days, so enjoy! (see the crab story under #3)
  2. Bruce Agan’s JeepGalaSurrey DJ-3A site may be down permanently. Those who don’t know, Bruce was arguably one of the most knowledgeable DJ-3A/Surrey (he owned several) collectors about that vehicle line. Moreover, he not only shared his information with anyone interested in the DJ-3A family, but he also posted his information on the jeepgalasurrey.com site a few years ago. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2016. His site remained online until last week.

    If I don’t see the site reappear soon (this means his web host received a payment), then I’ll launch the information from files I gathered from his site (SiteSucker is a very handy application). I’ll let you know when the site goes back up.

  3. As you can see, we are enjoying some crab on our first night of camping (Clyde Holiday State Park in Oregon). Funny store that explains why a brain damaged wife can be a good thing.

    Ann had a craving for crab. When we decided to go camping, she went shopping for some camping food and felt 1/2 a crab each ought to be enough. She approved the fish counter and said she wanted 2 crabs (as the crab was already cleaned and separated into halves).

    However, the person behind the counter interpreted that as 1 crab (2 halves) each or 4 halves total. The counter-person went to work, while Ann was blissfully unaware what was happening …. she said she was trying to remember how she had setup the sprinkler system in 2005.

    When the counter-person handed her the package, she thought it looked big, but didn’t think much of it. Only when she got home did she open to find SIX HALVES!

    Now, I don’t know where the disconnect happened, but I can confirm that I had my fill of crab Wednesday night 🙂 🙂

“1960 DJ-3A Willys Jeep 2WD
This jeep was purchased by my Dad in 1969 and has been in the family since. It was used for transportation on a vacation island in upstate NY going to the beach, etc….island was 3.5 miles by 7 miles. My brother did a restoration around 20 years ago…..runs, drives, clean with minor scraped and scratches. Seats and top could need to be redone….but no tears. It has a new carb, still have the original carb, missing a front turn light lens and the original gas cap. Dad removed the side foot steps many years ago and they are gone along with both side door frame.

2004 Wrangler “Surrey” Sandy, UT $34,995

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

TJ shared this unusual Wrangler. In terms of a DJ-3A Surrey throwback attempt, it doesn’t quite work for me.

https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/jeep/unspecified/2038992.html?refer=news#&gid=1&pid=6

2004-jeep-wrangler-surrey-sandy-ut

” This 2004 Jeep Wrangler Surrey very nice customization has brought this Jeep to look as though it came straight from the ’60s, displaying many of the signature themes seen on the original Surreys. The base for this re-creation is a 2004 Jeep Wrangler that is equipped with the much loved inline six-cylinder engine, an automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. The exterior has been finished in a light shade of blue with matching wheels and whitewall tires. The interior is finished with blue and white striped upholstery, blue door panels, blue dashboard; and a blue and white steering wheel. The Jeep is tailored with a rollbar, removable side curtains, a striped fringed top and a rear-mounted spare tire with a striped cover.

Along with the many aesthetic customizations, this Jeep has power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and an AM/FM radio. The re-creation completed here has been executed very well and complements the original Surrey Jeep design. This Jeep, with its modern drivetrain, presents itself as a perfect candidate for being used at a resort or used for a weekend adventure. Henry Kaiser bought Willis-Overland in 1953, and then went to live at a hotel that he owned in Hawaii. As a part of the hotel, he owned a car rental business that offered Surrey Jeeps as a cheap runabout vehicle that were used around the resorts. In 1959, a Gala edition, with striped upholstery and fringed top, was added to the export line; intended for resort areas like Hawaii, the Caribbean and Mexico. Later that year it was marketed domestically as the Surrey.”

“Vintage 1950’s Hamilton Jeep Willys flat fender pedal car. All original condition and great candidate for restoration / modification. It would also be a great display piece as it sits. It does have some surface rust from years of storage in a barn but there is no rot.”
