DJ-3A with a tailgate Huntsville, Al **SOLD**

1955_dj3a_huntsvilleUPDATE:  **SOLD**

I include this jeep as it’s a rare example, in my opinion, of a DJ-3A with a tailgate.  I’ve heard these existed, but hadn’t had picture proof until I saw this one.  The thing that clued me in was the large speedometer.  Once I saw that, I went back and read the description.

“For Sale is my 1955-1964 DJ3A/CJ2A/CJ3A combo Jeep that I use on my Farm for general weekly transportation over the last several years. Jeep is stored inside my barn at all times on my farm. If you are looking for a show vehicle with matching numbers this is not the ride for you. However, if you are looking for a good solid original Willys flat fender Jeep driver for general use, read on. All body parts except the tool box are original Willys manufacture. Body tub, fenders, hood, tailgate, and front grill are original DJ3A that have had a paint job using Mil Standard Sherwin Williams OD CARC paint. Body tub is solid as the DJ3A had a full hard top which protected it from the normal weather related rust experienced by most soft top Willys vehicles…..”

1952 CJ-3A Redmond, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Update:  **SOLD** Was $2800.

This looks to be a good price.  The tires look good and the body looks straight from the picture angle.  Given the seller didn’t include the keyword “willys” this may be a difficult one for most people to find, which might mean the price will drop some more from lack of calls.

Flat fender racing jeep Wesport, Or $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Racing • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

I’m not sure if this is a PNW legal racer or not.  It may just be a sand/mud buggy.  I can’t tell for sure, but I suspect the body is fiberglass, probably a bobcat body, as the rim around the back looks wider than a standard body.  I am wondering why they dont’ have a front bumper on the thing. There about $800 is tires alone, if in decent shape.

“i have a 41 flat fender willys jeep it has a 350 and a 700r tranny and a narowed toyota rearend and five point harrnesses it comes with a set of 31” paddles and a wheelie bar askin 3500 or trade for something 4×4 and of equal value.”

1953 CJ-3A Orchard Park, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $12,500.

It looks perfect in the pictures.  The restorer worked at an aerospace plant and used aerospace paint primers.  There are plenty of upclose pics.  I believe him when he says every part was sandblasting.

“Here is my 1953 Willys CJ3A Jeep.Every thing was rebuilt and needs nothing.Runs perfect.The pictures do not do this Willys Justice.No expense spared when i built this.Won Best detail overall at SOUTHGATE Car show 4 years in a row.A few best engine and chassis at a few others.If your looking for something that stands out in a crowd this will do it!”

1951 CJ-3A Meridian, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

FINAL UPDATE: I dropped by the auction today. It was plenty busy;  with no parking lot, cars filled the side of the road for along ways both directions. A large number of items were being auctioned, so I chose not to stay and wait the hours it was going to take to get to the jeep.  I never did receive any emails in response to the ones I sent about the jeep.

I spent some time looking closely at the jeep.  According to the title, the jeep had been located in Prineville, Oregon.  It appeared to have an older inline 6 cyl engine, maybe a Super Hurricane.  The round front cross-member was partly cut and flattened on top with the radiator moved forward and installed on top of it.  The engine compartment was wired with care. The floor panel looked so good, I think it might have been a replacement.  It used to have a heater (heater button on dash), but that was missing. The paint looked as good in person as it did in the pics.  The body is very straight.  Overall it appeared to be in excellent condition.

UPDATE 2: No responses to any of the emails I’ve sent so far. However, I just discovered the Korean War National Museum.  It’s a going to be a “a world-class museum to ensure that the historical significance of the Korean War is recognized by future generations”.  It’s set to open in 2009 in Springfield, Illinois.  They’ve got a great video at the Museum’s website.  So visit and learn more about what they are doing.  In the meantime, I’m awaiting a response from the Executive Director — Might as well start at the top 🙂

UPDATE:  As I mentioned in the comments attached to this post,  CHOSIN FEW is a group that supports those individuals who participated in the Battle of Chosin at Chosin Reservoir during the winter of Nov/Dec 1950.  The symbol on the hood is the logo of the group.  The 40 below and 70 miles to go apparently represents how cold it was and how far they had to go to escape the waves of Chinese.  You can read about one Chosin survivor here (the Chosin battle starts about halfway down the article).  I feel that this is such a special paint job that I’ve emailed a variety of Chosin contacts I’ve located on the web in the hopes that someone who understands the meaning of it will purchase it.

This appears to be a very nicely restored CJ-3A that’s being auctioned as part of an estate sale/bankruptcy.  There is no description, but it appears that the restoration is close to stock.  I can’t tell what type of engine is in it.  Though not a stock paint job, it looks very good, smooth and glossy.

I’m not sure what all is combined to make this flattie.  The good news is that the body appears to be in excellent condition.  Lots of large pics on the Ad allow for close inspection.  The seller notes that this a currently a 2wd vehicle, though in one image it looks like there is a front pumpking visible.

1949 CJ-3A Stratford, WI $750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This jeep has a 30 front and 44 rear with posi and 4:10 gears.  This is a great price.  Where were these jeeps when I was looking a year and a half ago!  The fenders have been lengthened, which explains the odd hood.  I wonder if this is a later model frame.

“1949 Jeep Willys 4×4 CJ-2A flat fender. Body and frame in good-excellent shape with very minimal rust for the year. Roll bar installed with a fold down windshield and newer black jeep cj-7 seats. NO rear seat. Front axle is a Dana 30 with drum brakes with a Dana 44 rear. The rear axle has a positrac unit installed (not welded or Lincoln locked), 4.10 gears front and rear. The brakes for being drums work surprisingly well. The engine is an international scout v8 345 with a holley 2 barrel carb mated to a 3 speed manual transmission and a dana 20 twin stick tcase.”

This is a beautiful CJ-3A.

“This vehicle was purchased new by a California doctor who kept it on his ranch most of it’s life. I bought it in 2003. I believe the +/-56,000 is probably accurate.The only thing that is off of original is the seat belts and roll bar which I added. It has been repainted but is original color. The seats have been rebuilt and the top was replaced. Recently(early this year) I installed all new brake drums, shoes and cylinders, also new (less than 50 miles) Michelin tires.”

1956 DJ-3A Portola, Ca **Sold for $2000**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This is an ebay buy-it-now sale.  At first I thought the model year was wrong, but then I realized the body has a solid back (no tailgate). So, I believe this is a DJ-3A that has been converted to 4wd, hence the reason it sports a dana 27 front housing.  The brand new fiberglass parts alone would cost at least $600.  The tires and rims look fine.  The body appears in good shape.  It doesn’t actually say it runs, but if it does, I think this is a good price.

“This is a RUST FREE 56 willys cj 3a flat fender. It comes with a stock 283 chevy engine, t90 3 speed, model 18 t case, dana 27 front 5.38, dana 44 rear power lock 5.38 gears, roll bar, headers, NEW fiberglass front clip, tow bar, 2.5 inch lift, 10.50 31 tires, enki rims. The buyer pays all shipping or picks up in person. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding. If you have any questions please call me at 1 530 927 9827”

It’s a bit rough around the edges, but no obvious holes or major rust.

“This is a good jeep. The engine runs great. The jeep needs some work, but I have parts that go with it.
Four brand new mounted tires. A new top kit. New hubs. Gaskets and seals for front end and rear end. Shift lever floor gaskets, tail light. If you like to tinker with old jeeps, this would be a good project for you.”
