Two wheel drive. Shows 97 miles on the odometer. Always stored inside and the condition reflects that.  It was partially restored by the previous owner, and received new paint and upholstery.

The DJ-3A Surrey at the Wailea Hotel on Maui, Hawaii

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

I received an email from Paul the other day and the subject read ‘Refreshing’.  One quick look at the picture in the email explained what he meant (see the 1st picture below).

Yep, that is one pretty jeep!

Using the keyword “Wailea” I started tracking down more pictures of it.  It turns out Colin has a couple of them too, as does a friend of his.  So, here are a few of this jeep that is still owned by the Wailea Hotel in Maui (boy, after today’s cold weather, Maui is sounding awfully nice!)

More pictures I found on the internet:

And from Colin, you can see the jeep prior to the stenciling:

UPDATE: This was on eBay in March of 2011 and for sale in Pennsylvania.  It has different tires now.

“1963 Willys Dispatcher DJ3A 2dr delivery car with 2-wheel drive, sliding side doors, lift up tail gate, very cute and has many applications. We were going to do a restoration on this and just don’t have time. This Jeep is pretty rough but comes with a set of new floor boards and we will accept any reasonable offer.  The Jeep does not run, but the engine is not stuck.  Both rear springs are bad and it currently has no brakes.upholstery needs done as well. We have the original chrome bumper and guards for the front (needs plating). It will need to be trailered for sure. <P> One of these in fully restored condition sold for $18000 on ebay last year.  SO, if you want an ambitious restoration project with an upside, here it is.  Call Bob for a good deal on this little, rare Willys.”

These are pictures from the previous auction.  At the very least, the DJ-3A no longer has a license plate.

UPDATE: Back on eBay. Colin exchanged emails with the seller and learned this is a very early DJ-3A, as it is the 92nd DJ3A built in late 1955.

This is a nice DJ-3A that was found on the CJ-3B Page.

“Nice clean jeep. No rust…  Been in the family scenes the mid 60s .

1956 DJ-3A Richmond, KY **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

This runs and drives. The floor boards need a little work. This might restore well.

“You are looking at a very rare Willys, 4×2 Willys , DJ3A. It runs great and doesn’t smoke or knock. The paint is almost gone on it. It has four lug wheels with a straight axle in the front, all original. The brakes has a full peddle but need bleeding. The body is in reall good shape, with only two small places in the front floor. You can see this in the pictures. This would be an easy surface to repair. Driver’s seat needs to be rocovered. This vehicle is a 3 speed on the column and shifts good. I do have the front parking light lens and ring. Needs some exhaust work. It has a new windshield frame but does need a new glass and seal. Tires are in good shape. Over all with just a little TLC this Willys will be easy to restore.”

1965 DJ-3A Abbotsford, BC, Canada **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500

(11/12/2010) Here’s a DJ-3A that is in excellent condition, though it has been updated to 4wd.  The seller believes that there were DJ-3As with 4wd produced, but Bruce has told me this wasn’t the case.

“Unique little Dispatcher survivor in great condition. These vehicles were mostly all 2wdr units and only a few 4×4’s were produced, not sure if this is one or if it has been converted. It is in super condition to use as is or if a person was wanting to restore it, it would be a very nice little project. The jeep has all the correct running gear and it all works as it should. The transmission leaks at the front seal I believe, and needs to be replaced or keep a good eye on the fluid level. It also has new tires, clutch, shocks, brakes and wheel cyl’s. The roof on theses Dispatchers was not meant to taken on and off, so it is bolted on with many bolts, but could be removed with a couple hrs of labor. The electric winch on the front is super HD, probably overkill for this jeep, and it works great! The Jeep is also set up and wired for towing, pulls very nice, we towed it up and down the Oregon coast and had a blast on the beaches with it!”
