1956 DJ-3A Salt Lake City, UT $6500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: The price on KSL was only $1000 for this, but now has been updated to $6500. The headline of the post reads “Wagon”, but I suspect that is related to the way the ad has to be entered. 

(08/04/2018) It’s missing a few minor things, but over all is in pretty good shape. Has an odd set of hubcaps. As usual, it lacks the soft top. I’m beginning to wonder if people hated the soft top (the visibility would have been worse than a standard soft top), so they simply got rid of the soft tops.

“THIS IS A 1957 WILLYS DJ-3A. IT IS PART OF A LARGE COLLECTION OF EARLY WILLYS JEEPS THAT WERE ALL STORED AWAY OVER 33 YEARS AGO.

THIS JEEP IS ALL ORIGINAL WITH EXCEPTION OF THE SEATS. IT HAS A SOLID BODY, 4 CYLINDER 134 CI MOTOR, 3 SPEED TRANS WITH COLUMN SHIFT, AND 2WD.

THIS JEEP HAS BEEN UNUSED FOR MANY YEARS NOW. I PURCHASED IT MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE CONDITION OF THE BODY, VERY STRAIGHT WITH NO RUST. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN ANY RESTORATION. THIS JEEP RUNS GREAT, HOWEVER MAY NEED A NEW FUEL PUMP. 56337 10252”

“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.

39935 miles…..believe it was in the mid 20’s when Dad purchased. Let me know if there are any questions….i’ll try to answer the best I can……oh, my Mom has all the paperwork to go with it.”

1956 DJ-3A Western Pennsylvania $3200

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

This DJ-3A Convertible is #30 (SN #10030). It looks like they opted for a hardtop rather than a soft top. It’s been sitting in a barn for many years, but looks pretty stock. The jeep has a Sears Aluminum Deluxe top, so hopefully the floors are in good shape. You’ll see on the engine an original dry-type air filter. The engine compartment also has a washer bag, suggesting this has a windshield sprayer; I wonder if it was foot powered? t only has a single vacuum wiper (the passenger side is a hand wiper).  It may make a great restoration project. The seller listed it on Facebook here:

Frame off restore, no rust nice paint. Flathead 4 cylinder, 3 speed column shift. 95% done, great shape, has a fuel issue, probably bad gas.
It has just been a porch pretty for a year. We are playing with the fact to cut it in half and stretch it and drop a big block in it and make a bad ass trail rig out of it. We’d figured Id throw it out there for sale 1st.
The inside pics are taken today and the discoloration is all just dirt and pollen. ”

1962 DJ-3A Surrey Fort Lauderdale, FL**SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay. $14,999.

Most of the pics are more of these ‘models’ rather than jeep.

“This showroom-fresh Willy’s Beach Car was the center piece of Johnson Jeep & Willy’s in Riverside, California, for many years. The speedometer shows 200 miles since it has been restored.

From the looks of the restoration, it was done by the Jeep Company many years ago, probably in the seventies.
It needed a new parking break cable when I bought it. I’ve installed “Quick Steer” that has made this a joy to drive with 1 finger.

These DJ 3A Willy’s are impossible to find in this condition. From the paperwork, this vehicle looks to have been a Las Brisas hotel Willy’s (Acapulco). I believe that Elvis Presley once owned a Willy’s just like this one, in coral and pink. He certainly drove one in a few of his movies I have seen.

The jeep is missing the top, but I have a re-manufactured original top-style frame for it. And I have located the material and fringe for the Surrey top. This will be the new steward’s job.

The Willy’s stops, starts and rides as it should.
Books and records from the seventies are yours if you are the buyer.
It definitely has some scratches and patina on it. Come see it if you’d like.”
