“I am selling my 1962 Jeep DJ3A project. It was originally a hard top mail jeep that was long ago converted to a normal CJ3A, with patches covering the original cutouts in the tub and an M38 windshield.

The frame is the original DJ frame (verified by stamping numbers) that has been fully boxed. It has recently been sanded, rust treated and coated. It has a square tube front bumper.

The Jeep was converted to 4×4 in the 70s, run by a couple owners, and then taken apart by the previous owner in 1981. The tub and all sheet metal was stored inside gathering dust until 2016 when I purchased it after he passed away. As a result of that, the tub is almost completely rust free, save for two small spots toward the back of the wheel wells. The original running gear (save for rear axle) is gone.

(01/29/2017) Colin’s son Lee is selling this DJ-3A, Serial #56337 12838. Contact Colin at colins60vette@cox.net for more info.

“Lee got this from Jim Sullivan a couple of years ago. Once he got it from Jim, he found the hardtop body and tub were very rusty and had been cut by previous owners many years before. So he began modifications on this Jeep. It still retains the stock DJ3A frame, (with serial number), 4 lug wheels, front and rear axles (4.56 rear end ratio), and steering column topped with a Willys station wagon wheel. It has a custom seat, teardrop taillights. It is titled as a 1957 DJ3A.

The body is a new CJ3A reproduction body with a 4 inch chopped windshield, new gauges, padded roll bar, 11 gallon aluminum gas tank in the rear of the body, new wheels, trim rings, baby moon hubcaps and wide white wall tires, the rear being “piecrust” slicks due to the design of the slots around the edge of the tires. Custom front bumper and bikini top. It has a 1979 Buick 231 V6 and automatic transmission, a custom shifter and new gauges. New master cylinder and wheel cylinders. New wiring from the dashboard back, but needs a front wiring harness and a set of headlight buckets(CJ2 , DJ3Aor 3A type). The Jeep needs to be finished, front wiring harness, headlights and headlight buckets, carburetor. The color is 2013 Dodge Challenger Copper Mango Tango.”

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:

1956 DJ-3A Smithfield, ME $2500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: Still Available.

Glenn’s selling his DJ-3A he named “Miss Willy”. Ann and I rode in it back in 2013, shortly before someone hit Glenn while driving it. Miss Willy was the 122nd one produced after our newest DJ-3A convertible “Paterson” (10366) and only 50 units before “Rusty” (10538). Like Paterson and Rusty, it too has the convertible body. Glenn’s hoping a DJ-3A lover will restore it.

“Miss Willy, a 2WD early production 2WD Jeep, was wrecked almost two years ago. Health issues have prevented me from rebuilding this California beauty. An almost perfect rust free body, nice floors and hat channels, a few scratches from flipping on its side, has frame, hood, windshield, fenders damage and probably some hidden problems. Brakes left 4 perfect skid marks in the wreck. Interior is usable and pretty. No Engine or Radiator included as I used them in another project. I shipped this from California awhile back so it’s an easy rebuild. Use your ideas and parts or I have a total of seven of these DJ3A’s to provide anything needed at extra cost. I can deliver this to you for reasonable cost as I’m going to The Great Willys Picnic in Kempton (Allentown) PA on June 11, 2017. The price is $2500 CASH. Open CA Title. Email for contact / details. Here’s wreck details from a favorite Willys Site:”

Year? DJ-3A Valley View, TX Estate Sale

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

Charles spotted this Surrey-like jeep. It looks to me like an early, basic DJ-3A to which someone added some surrey trimmings. No price or description provided, other than the seller describes it as a “1953”, which would be three years before the first DJ was introduced. Still, it looks like a fun rig to drive around town. It’s for sale the weekend of May 12-14.

2 DJ-3As Amelia, OH $1800

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

There are quite a few good parts here and the blue one runs.

“I have two Willys Jeeps for sale. Both for one price, will not separate. A 1962 DJ-3A & a 1965 DJ-3A. They are both restorable, but in rough condition. The 1965 (mostly blue) runs good an drives but is not complete. The 1962 (mostly green) has been sitting for
a long time and does not run but, it is complete except for the radiator, battery & tailgate. everything else is there and it rolls. These are Dispatcher Jeeps and are rear wheel drive. One is floor shift & the other is column shift. They are the old style flathead engines, flat hood & flat fenders.
If you want to build a Gala, or one of the other DJ models, This is all you need to start. I have clear titles for both.
Sadly, all glass has been broken out & there is a lot of rust. Check photos carefully. $1,800.00 cash, no trades, will not separate.”

“1964 Willys for sale. It has a chevy 350 engine in it. Here is the rundown. I have owned it as a project jeep for about 6 months. I overpaid for it (my fault), and paid $4,200 for it, I have put roughly $2,500 into it from parts and paying a buddy (mechanic) to help (not including my own time). I am selling it because I am trying to buy a plane ticket for my girlfriend to go to the East Coast to see her grandma one last time. So, basically I need the money. I am up front and honest about the condition of the Jeep. The good and the bad about it. Ill start with what I have done to it/what is good about the jeep. The jeep does run, and I would say it runs well, but obviously it is not a finished project.
-New radiator
-New alternator
-New battery and battery box
-New fuel tank
-New starter and solenoid
-New battery shutoff
-Rewired most of the wiring

UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/11/2017) This DJ-3A is actually a 1962 that sold in 1964. The trim ID indicates that it may have been a Surrey. Though it has an L-134, it’s a former industrial engine. The jeep has a few other modifications, including four wheel drive. Still, looks like a good price.

Year? DJ-3A Toccoa, GA $1500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

This ex-DJ-3A convertible was changed to 4×4. It looks to be a 1958ish or later model. Still, There’s at least some value in the parts (There are some DJ-specific parts I could use — bumper, windshield, side mirror, shifting assembly). The hood looks tight, though has a few dings. The tranny cover plates look good. There are some top pieces left.

“Little willys jeep. Motor is free, think it will run. Came factor as a 2 wheel drive an collum shift. Has been converted to a 4×4 front axel an has a 4×4 transmission an transfer case to go with it.”
