“Offered for sale is our 1963 Willys Jeep Surrey. This car was restored in our automotive restoration shop CASCO Automotive Restorations, a division of Classic Auto Supply Co., in Coshocton Ohio in 2004 and shortly thereafter transported to the Florida Keys where it has been since then. The odometer shows 37,600 miles. I do not believe this to be correct. The Serial Number is 5633722482.

Doesn’t run, but looks in good shape. I don’t see a front driveline, so it may still be 2WD.

“1957 military jeep all original except for paint. Jeep is in excellent condition as far as the body is concerned, needs a little restoration for the interior to be back up. Has been sitting for 20 years. Does not run, would be a great project or collectors item. Call or text anytime”

1959 DJ-3A Surrey Miami, FL $25,995

It’s a little rough for the asking price. Listed as a 1956, it is actually a 1959 based on the serial number 5633716301. It only has 11,000 miles.

Year? DJ-3A Dublin, CA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD for $650**

This is missing the radiator, but it looks solid.

“What you are looking at is a REALLY cool opportunity for a rat rod, or a restoration, or a neat little delivery vehicle for your auto parts biz. This is a 2 wheel drive Willy’s DJ-3a dispatch Jeep. lots of people think they were for the post office, but they were generic delivery vehicles. lots of small businesses in the 50’s and 60’s ran these.

The Jeep is relatively complete with column shift etc. It is missing the radiator. The motor etc is a little bit mystery, as this Jeep hasn’t been registered since the 70’s

DMV said not to do anything as far as registration until your ready to put on the road. Which means NO TAXES!!!”

1964 DJ-3A Belleville, NJ **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(03/26/2010) “As mentioned above this DJ3A comes in very rare automatic transmission variation, 4×2 WD, with right hand drive which was a special order of Public Works Departments through out the country, this vehicles were also used by delivery agencies and post offices. When I got this Willys I was skeptical about if auto tranny is original or not but later in my research I came across official Willys document called Consolidated Specifications for Commercial Vehicles and it clearly stated that in fact auto transmission was an option for DJ3A line of vehicles (I can email this document to any interested party). Also I found pictures of very same Jeeps with canvas half tops, right hand drive and auto tranny at the Los Angeles Department of Public Works web sight on the page related to the history of the department (it’s a low resolution pictures but I attached them to this listing) . . . Much more history on eBay”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Here’s a DJ-3A in great shape. Note the frame is purple.

“First of all,I must start by saying that this NOT a post office jeep,. In 1955 &1956 Willys put out this vehicle & called it a Jeep Dispatcher / Delivery vehicle ,ideal for use in congested metropolitan areas. To me it’s just a cool little jeep. This jeep had a frame off restoration a couple years back,at that time the original owner changed the transmission from a manual 3 speed synchromesh to a turbo 350 automatic with a 6 volt system.The original transmission is included,every nut &bolt was saved just incase to switch it back. The jeep is in great shape & runs good. Just had it inspected in may 2013,Ican’t think of anything it needs,besides maybe a tune up. $500.”

Marc spotted this unsual DJ-3A. The back has been extended and the dash contains a glovebox, but otherwise there’s lots of DJ-3A elements here. I didn’t know there were DJ-3A ambulances. Anyone ever seen one?

“Fully equipped DJ3A ambulance, well restored over the past years, very good technical condition, new tyres, good condition canvas softtop, etc…”

1957 DJ-3A Anacortes, WA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: Was ‘For Trade’. **SOLD**

This seller has not put the title into his name yet.  This appears in good shape.

“I have a 1957 Willys DJ3A i would like to trade for a different project (i would like to get a 50s ford, chevy or dodge truck but will look at all), I have the original title in hand, i have not put it into my name yet because i was not sure what i was going to do with it and thought being the second owner of a rig meant something anyhow the Willys runs and drives, when i got it he started to convert it to 12 volt so it now runs and charges 12v but all the lights are still 6 volt so it will need to be rewired for 12v. it has min rust on the hood only the tub and rest of the body is straight with out rust. every thing other than the 12v system is original equipment. let me know what you have to trade, i would sell it but i cant seem to find a value on line for this to set a price so i will only trade for fear of getting the short end of the stick or giving someone els the short end.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

Based on the Serial Number this is technically a 1958.  You can follow the discussion here and here.

It doesn’t run at the moment.

“We have a 1957 Jeep Willys (Kaiser) DJ-2A Flathead 2WD in our barn. We are evaluating what to do with it but we are not interested in fixing it up. It has all the parts and was running (driven into the garage) but it is rough. We want to sell it but do not want to chop it up or part it out because it was running when we drove it into the barn about 4 years ago.”

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

UPDATE: This is back on eBay

(01/16/2011) “This is a 1956 Willy’s Dispatcher (DJ-3A) It has been completely restored from the frame up.  It is a 4-cyl, 2-wheel drive, 3-speed on column and has 6 volt electrical system.  Frame, wheels, rear, front I beam, cross members, bumpers, and most brackets are powder coated.  Engine and trans were rebuilt.  Has new wiring harness, seats, steering wheel, carpet, door glass.  Almost every part was serviced or replaced.  All exterior bolts are stainless steel.  The only thing that is not working at the present time is the sending unit in gas tank.  It is new but when I drained the gas tank to fix a fuel leak, the sending unit stuck on empty.  I also removed the horn to paint and powder coat.  There was so much work done it was too much to list, please feel free to ask questions.  Original mileage is 8287; roughly 300 miles of this is since restore was completed.  This vehicle is not inspected due to being registered in PA as a classic vehicle…it is not required.”
