Some Jeep Slides on eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, DJ-3A, FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

Here are some slides with jeeps currently for sale on eBay. The first one is an unusual tour jeep that I hadn’t seen previously. It’s somewhere at least semi-tropical, based on the upper right tree.

1. Here’s an FC-170 setup as a tour jeep. It appears to include a bed-extension on the back.

2. This slide shows a yellow CJ-5 and a ticket office at Harney Peak Black Hills SD:

3. This next two slides share images from 1962 of a Maine Forest Service MB. This is slide one:

4. This is slide two:
year-maine-forest-serice-mb-25. And, finally, this slide shows a rare yellow DJ-3A used by the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce. I don’t have many vintage photos showing a DJ-3A in the original yellow color (though they do appear on several brochures).

1957 DJ-3A Desert Hot Springs, CA $1600


Seller wants it gone. If truly a 1957, then it is a standard DJ-3A, as the Gala/Surrey weren’t introduced until 1959.

1965 DJ-3A? Hastings, MN $3250


Unclear how much value is here, but this may be a modified 1965 DJ-3A. The rear tank, grille, and lack of WILLYS on the hood are a few clues.

“1965 Willys Jeep, rebuilt motor, all parts except main body. Includes title. Runs and yard drives. More parts not shown in pics.”

Scott’s selling his stock DJ-3A.

“1956 Willys DJ3A Dispatcher. Rare 2WD with column shift. New brake system (master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes, lines, hoses and emergency brake cable), new wiring harness and new tires. This is a true survivor with only 4 small areas that are rusted through (driver side foot board, panel above passenger foot board, cargo floor behind seats and panel next to tailgate on driver side). It runs great and could easily be restored if desired.”

1965 Flattie Lake Odessa, MI No Price


Sounds like seller would prefer to trade. It appears to be 2WD.  I see no reason to think this was a DJ-3A at some point, but I’ll add it to that category anyway.

“Let’s trade what do you have this Jeep is very very very clean in new shape and done right also has an all new interior powered by a Isuzu fuel injected 4cyl motor runs and drives plz send pics and info with your offer thanks”

1959 DJ-3A & 1950 CJ-3A Griffin, GA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

Several folks forwarded this one. Interesting that this has a top with side windows. It just further demonstrates that the CJ-5 and DJ-3A versions of this top were interchangeable.

“1959 Willys DJ-3a jeep and a 1950 jeep for sale. The dj3a will run but the fuel tank is out of it right now but you can hear it run. 1950 cj3a is a complete jeep minis the motor and windshield. Also have lots of extra parts to go with them. No title sold with bos. Located in Griffin ga”

Year? DJ-3A Elko, NV Make Offer


This looks to be a DJ-3A body that originally had the open sides, but someone filled them in. The body looks to be on a 4WD chassis, but I can’t make out what chassis that is.

Year? DJ-3A Frankfort, IN $1000


The side vent on the passenger side suggests this is 1959 or later.

Year? DJ-3A Owensboro, KY No Price


This has no title. Given the radiator and the transmission crossmember mount (just visible in one pic), this is likely a DJ-3A convertible body on a CJ-2A chassis.

“Trade OBO NO TITLE!!! We got it thinking of restoring it due to it having many good parts but decided not to due to not having time. Would like to trade for a motorcycle or best offer for it.”
