1963 DJ-3A Morganton, NC $4200


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/28/2017) Craig shared this one. The Koenig hardtop looks in fine shape. It has been converted to 4WD.

“Willys Jeep DJ-2a with unique hardtop with sliding doors. Converted to 4wd at some point in the past. 4 cylinder motor and 3 speed manual. This vehicle ran when parked but currently has wiring issues and will not start. Clean NC title in hand.”

1963 DJ-3A/4WD Campbellsport, WI $2500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/01/2017) It’s been converted to 4WD, but I don’t see transfer case lever(s)? It was a column shift.

“63 willy’s corrected lighting system, turn and brake lights. New tires, new steering ball joints and alignment. After running motor, found fresh oil dripping out of transmission bell ( where clutch is located ). Discussed situation with other mechanics believed it would be a leaking front main seal on transmission. Removed transmission to find it was the rear main engine seal. Lost time to finish repair due to sale of house. Put trans back in to help hold motor in place to move to WI. Jeep has a 3 speed trans.”

1947 CJ-2A/DJ-3A Definance, MO $4850


This might be a 2A with a DJ-3A Body on it (single speedo and no driver side fuel inlet … though it’s missing a rear inlet .. it does appear to have a rear tank).

“This one-of-a-kind 1947 Willy’s Jeep CJ2A still runs great! This Jeep even has NEW tires and NEW brakes! It has 4 wheel drive and a manual transmission. It is in good condition and has a clean title. Asking $4850 or would be open to trading for a Golf Cart.”

1961 DJ-3A & Surrey Smithfield, ME $3300


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/18/2017) Glenn’s selling this DJ package.

“Here is a Running 1961 Willys DJ3A. This is a Numbers Matching unit which only 1542 were made. Has Firewall Tag which matches Frame Number, and the Original 134 Flathead Engine it was built with. 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. Health issues prevents me from doing this project. Delivery and financing are available”

1958 DJ-3A Austin, TX $1200


No engine or trany. Not a whole lot of parts value either.

“1958 Jeep/Willys DJ3A 2 wheel drive. Frame has been repaired and boxed. Tub is rough but serviceable, other body parts need minor work. Body tag and frame stampings match clear Texas title. All tires hold air for the smooth and easy flat tow to your place. This is a project (a roller) no engine or transmission, Don’t come looking expecting to drive it home. These accept everything from a big block to a four banger. No parts please.”

1951 CJ-3A/DJ Columbus, OH $4500


It appears this is a CJ-3A with a DJ-3A body.  Looks like a fun little rig. It is 2WD now.

“This 1951 Willys has been in the family for over 20 years. It’s a neat cruise around car perfect for parades. The complete driveline has been changed over to an early 90’s Ford Mustang. 4 cyc. motor-trans and rearend. The seats from the mustang were also used and reupholstered. This summer, we replaced all 4 tires and inner/outer tie rods. Possibly open to trades.

1960? DJ-3A Ventura, CA $3950


UPDATE: Still Available. Per Colin, 56337 18392 1960 DJ3A Yellow, floor shift, some modifications, bucket seats, chrome windshield grab bars, chrome front bumper. Could this have been a Pepsi Surrey? Very close to numbers of other Pepsi Surreys. 

This is owned by Sherri and had the DJ featured in a magazine (Four Wheeler?). At some point, this jeep was stolen. It was returned to her in poor shape. It needs some restoration.  (At least, that’s what I understand based on the text below).

“Willys Jeep flat head 4 NOT 4Wheel drive, 3 speed shift
Old military style clean engine like new, needs tires & seats mounted, have bikini top,
I have owned 40 years originally restored (40 yrs ago) & was in magazines “jeep was stolen & left in a wash for few years” when I got it back I started to restore again! Was told 1945 registered & pink slip 1960.

1943? MB/DJ Mt. View, CA $3000


Listed as a 1943, it looks like it has a DJ body. Chassis might be CJ.

“I have an old Jeep that is titled as a 1943 with the L-134 engine. Converted to 12 v, I put a new voltage regulator on it and the electronics are good, Starts right up and drives. Has Overdrive added as well and it does work. Title in hand.
I was going to use it as a desert toy for my girlfriend and I but in the end it is a little too primitive for what I had in mind. Has nice full back aftermarket seats, and a nice top.Comes with Dick Cepek spoke wheels with good tires on them, at least 80% tread left on them. Runs and drives but will need tail pipe added at some point. Gas tank has been moved to the rear. Will throw in new hydraulic jack and lug wrench as well.”

1957 DJ-3A Tucson, AZ $2600


UPDATE: Price dropped to $2600.

(05/12/2017) Body looks great. Needs an engine and some other pieces. If this doesn’t come with the gas inlet, there’s one for sale on eBay. It’s a good price, too.  Seller also had a 1963 DJ chassis for sale. Interesting that it has a 0-10 speedo, which, if original to the jeep, would more likely make it an early 1956 model.

“1957 Jeep – Willys DJ3A. Rare 2w.d. “Dispatcher” model. Great candidate to restore as Surrey beach car. Major metalwork completed and presented in treated bare metal. Ready for finish bodywork and paint. Very complete except missing original engine. Has two transmissions, factory steps and curved front bumper. Rolls and steers. Clean Ariz . title. $2900.00. Also have another DJ3A rolling frame with matching 1963 title for $600. Call Ron.”

1956? DJ-3A Wichita, KS $4500


Listed as a 1950, I’d guess, based on that 0-9 speedometer, this is a 1956 or early ’57 DJ-3A.

“Here is a neat old 1950 willys jeep that runs fine. 2-WHEEL DRIVE. No rust. Check the pictures. $4,500”
