1956 DJ-3A West Haven, CT Highest Offer

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. Now Highest Offer.

https://newhaven.craigslist.org/cto/d/1956-dj3-on-cj2-chassis/6688568359.html

“First year Dj3 in outstanding original condition. Jeep currently runs and idles very well. Jeep does have its cosmetic issues and some rot here and there as evident in the photos. The Fuel tank and lines will need cleaning and possible internal coating of tank (I have it running on a test tank). Motor runs very well with no signs of issues. Radiator holds and cycles coolant. Brakes will need attention.

The body is very solid. The original fiberglass top is in great shape.

Very close inspection after much insight given by those whom have DJ-3A`s of their own has revealed that the frame is most likely that of a CJ-2A.  From information given to me and very careful cleaning of the upper frame area located in front of the body gusset on the right side of the jeep….there is no number stamped in the frame that I can see to denote it is a matched frame and body..”

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/464132870678541

“I have a 1943 Willys for sale. It is in excellent condition. It has 20,200 miles on it! I have a second set of black Willys wheels with military tires for it as well. Paint is a year old. I have the doors for it. It has the original drivetrain.(Go devil flathead engine, t90 transmission with Warn overdrive!). I have a tow bar for it, so it can be pulled behind a truck or r.v. This is the 18th and most favorite Jeep I’ve owned. I don’t have to sell, but I’m moving in a couple of weeks, so the cash would be helpful in the coming months. This jeep will not disappoint you! I will consider reasonable offers, but please don’t lowball me”

Painted Military over very poor body work by an old soldier who wanted parade use. New tires on very scarce original wheels, It’s ready to go while you make it better.

Included is an ORIGINAL Willys Pink SURREY body, like those in the Elvis beach movies. Only about 1100 ever made. Fix the Surrey body and mount it on the ’61 DJ3A chassis and you have a very special Matching Numbers Surrey Jeep. Two DJ3A units are in this deal. I found ’em, you decide where you go from here.

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”

This may have a DJ-3A convertible body and windshield. The windshield clamps are something I haven’t seen before.

https://slo.craigslist.org/cto/d/willys-jeep-cj2a/6612116609.html

“It is registered as a 1974 JEEP CJ model but I’m told by the Jeep experts that it is actually between a 1946-1949 Willys Jeep CJ2A. If your a Jeep lover this vehicle might be something that you are interested in.

It’s is street legal and registered through 9/18. The Headlights and taillights need to be hooked up and the new seat belts need to be installed. Tires have plenty of miles left on them.”

1962 DJ-3A Middlesex, NY $20,000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

Glenn spotted this DJ-3A. The paint looks nice on this (and nearly matches Patterson). Seller suggests this is a museum quality restoration, but it’s missing hubcaps, the air cleaner hose, and the horn button. It also lacks the windshield twist locks for the soft top and the soft top itself. The passenger side seat looks a little low.

San Juan Island is beautiful this time of year! No pics provided.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/cto/d/jeep-project/6641517516.html

“I bought this as a project and it is still a project. It is titled as a 1965 DJ3A but appears to have military running gear. I was told that it was a UN Jeep at one time but I am not a Jeep expert. It has a 283 Chevy engine that starts and runs great. It needs brakes and exhaust work to be a driver. Showing 52K miles that I believe to be original. It has aftermarket crome rims with oversized tires that make it a roller. My circumstances have changed or it would not be for sale. Could be a fun project. Photos to seriously interested. Open to a reasonable offer.”
