“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”

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.

1943? Flattie Menifee, CA $9000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A, MB

The body looks to be a DJ-3A body. I don’t see anything that suggest this was a 1943 MB/GPW.

https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/d/willys-jeep/6641595409.html

“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”

1965 DJ-3A/CJ? Friday Harbor, WA $6000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

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.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, DJ-3A

The body looks to be DJ, but the pics aren’t good enough to tell much more than that. It’s still 2WD, but not clear if that’s due to a lack of a front drive line or lack of a front R&P.

“1960 DJ-3A Willys Jeep 2WD
This jeep was purchased by my Dad in 1969 and has been in the family since. It was used for transportation on a vacation island in upstate NY going to the beach, etc….island was 3.5 miles by 7 miles. My brother did a restoration around 20 years ago…..runs, drives, clean with minor scraped and scratches. Seats and top could need to be redone….but no tears. It has a new carb, still have the original carb, missing a front turn light lens and the original gas cap. Dad removed the side foot steps many years ago and they are gone along with both side door frame.

39935 miles…..believe it was in the mid 20’s when Dad purchased. Let me know if there are any questions….i’ll try to answer the best I can……oh, my Mom has all the paperwork to go with it.”

1957 DJ-3A Phoenix, AZ $6500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

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

“My son 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.”
