1964 DJ-3A Pleasanton, CA $8900

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/11/2016) While it looks in great shape, it isn’t quite as stock as the seller would like to claim. There are lots of little things (seats, top, parking lights. and hubcaps for starters. It also appears to have a Corvette air cleaner (chrome — these aren’t cheap) rather than a black painted air cleaner. The shape of the air cleaner looks correct.

“Restored California Jeep with Minor Upgrades
No Major Body or Driveline Modifications

Perfect for the Cabin, Beach House, or Just a Local Weekend Jeep!
ABOUT THIS 1964 JEEP DJ-3 – OVERALL CONDITION
Simply stated, this is a, extremely nice example of the increasingly rare Jeep convertible. We often see Jeeps listed for sale but typically they are, to put it mildly, in less than good condition. Rarely do we see an example of a nice California restored Jeep DJ-3A. This is one such example.

This particular Jeep retains the proper L-134 4 cylinder engine and the floor shift 3-speed transmission.

While the engine and transmission have not been replaced with large, inappropriate units, a benefit to true enthusiasts and collectors, it is the car’s overall condition that make it especially appealing. When the Jeep was restored, it was brought back to its former glory with only minor cosmetic modifications or changes from stock. No large, over-sized mud tires, added gauges, sound system or other modifications were added to the car and it remains basically in the same basic configuration as it would have been seen in 1964.

The Jeep has been very well cared for in the months since its restoration, and it shows. The car has been adult owned and has no signs of ever been abused or mistreated. When restored, the Jeep received a complete re-paint in a striking metallic blue and a quality canvas blue and white striped top was fitted along with rear, matching cushions. New seats were added along with new seat belts, the dash was painted to match and, while the Jeep was disassembled, the entire inside was treated with bed liner to protect it from rust and give it a lovely appearance.

Overall, this is one of the strongest running and driving examples that we have seen in many years. The photos accurately depict the high quality of the body and paint, interior and engine / trunk areas. The car is free from the typical Jeep rust and even California buyers will be amazed at the lack of rust on the underside, rocker panels, trunk, engine bay, doors and other typically rust affected areas on the Jeep.

Chrome bumpers were added and they fit well and are perfectly straight and free from damage or rust. They do not show the light pitting or discoloration often seen on cars from other parts of the country where exposure to moisture and the elements have discolored all of the exterior chrome and other trim. The car’s body is truly in great shape and we continue to get remarks that the car has the appearance of being freshly refurbished / restored.

The Jeep received a new, high quality complete re-paint and is really striking. The metallic paint is high gloss and free from accident damage. The paint is free from cracking, peeling or any damage that detracts from the appearance and charm of the Jeep. The sides, rear cargo area and inner portions of the Jeep are straight and free from signs of rust, or damage. Perhaps most important, the Jeep’s body is free from modifications. The top has been recently replaced in high quality fabric similar to that found on the original Jeeps used as resort or beach vehicles and the top structure was restored and painted to match the body color. Rear cushions on either side add a nice touch and are upholstered in the same, color coordinated material.

The front windshield is free from any cracks, and in very good condition. The front windshield folds down when the top is removed for complete “open air” motoring. The chrome latches hold the hood down.

The interior is very simple and is fitted with two new matching seats that while not original are more comfortable and very attractive. The Jeep is also fitted with new seat belts. The dash is not cut-up like so many we see and includes some of the original gauges, switches and other items, including an opening on the left side of the dash for a radio (one is not fitted at this time but could easily be added). The interior is finished with bed liner for durability and front rubber mats accent the front drivers and passenger’s sides of the DJ-3A.

The windshield wipers are vacuum operated, turn signals and brake lights work and the speedometer is functional as well.

Jeep fans will tell you that rust is a major culprit with older examples but, as a result of this car’s long life in California, there are no signs of rust / rust through.

The wheels are chrome with body color center hubcaps that provide a nice touch. The wheels / tires are 14″ fitted with new matching steel belted radial in 205/75R14.”

1960 DJ-3A Surrey To Be Auctioned Jan 2017

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features • TAGS: , .

This 1960 DJ-3A Surrey will be auctioned in January of 2017 by Sotheby’s. The jeep is described as a “beautifully presented flawless restoration”. That statement is followed by a series of inaccurate statements regarding the history of DJ-3A, such as the DJ-3A was introduced in 1955 (nope 1956). You can see all the pics and information here: http://www.rmsothebys.com/lots/lot.cfm?lot_id=1081316

1960-dj3a

As Colin pointed out to Sotheby’s, despite some great work on this, there are actually numerous flaws with this restoration:

  1. Front bumper is from a 1948-49 Willys Jeepster, way too wide for a DJ3A Surrey.
  2. Valance panel behind the front bumper is too long, as it has to cover the Willys Jeepster front bumper brackets.
  3. Air filter is from a 1945-1949 Willys CJ2A 4WD Jeep and is made by Oakes.  The correct air filter should be either a small 7 inch dry air filter attached to the carburetor alone or a Donaldson oil bath air filter that attaches in the same position as the Oakes filter on this Jeep.
  4. The Fram oil filter is of the larger heavy duty unit, not the smaller one used by the civilian 4 cylinder Jeeps from 1946-1964.
  5. The windshield straps are incorrect, using webbed belts instead of vinyl with center buckle and three grommets, no additional adjusters on the straps at all.
  6. Windshield grab handles were chrome on Surreys, as were the side mirrors.
  7. The rear bumper is 1948-49 Willys Jeepster, has Willys Overland stamped into the center of the bumper and is too wide for a Surrey.  Surrey chrome bumpers were plain, without  the Willys Overland script.  Willys dropped the Overland part of the scripting for the 1950 models, but kept the Willys script on the 1950-51 Jeepsters and station wagon rear bumpers from 1950 through 1963 when the last of the old square bodies were used and the new Wagoneer station wagon debuted.
  8. The speedometer reads in kilometers, rather than miles per hour.  Surreys and all DJ3A Jeep speedometers read in miles per hour and calibrated from 0 through 9 after 1958.  0-8 for 1956- early 1958.  Kilometers were used on export Jeeps.

1962 DJ-3A Surrey Fort Lauderdale, FL**SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay. $14,999.

Most of the pics are more of these ‘models’ rather than jeep.

“This showroom-fresh Willy’s Beach Car was the center piece of Johnson Jeep & Willy’s in Riverside, California, for many years. The speedometer shows 200 miles since it has been restored.

From the looks of the restoration, it was done by the Jeep Company many years ago, probably in the seventies.
It needed a new parking break cable when I bought it. I’ve installed “Quick Steer” that has made this a joy to drive with 1 finger.

These DJ 3A Willy’s are impossible to find in this condition. From the paperwork, this vehicle looks to have been a Las Brisas hotel Willy’s (Acapulco). I believe that Elvis Presley once owned a Willy’s just like this one, in coral and pink. He certainly drove one in a few of his movies I have seen.

The jeep is missing the top, but I have a re-manufactured original top-style frame for it. And I have located the material and fringe for the Surrey top. This will be the new steward’s job.

The Willy’s stops, starts and rides as it should.
Books and records from the seventies are yours if you are the buyer.
It definitely has some scratches and patina on it. Come see it if you’d like.”

1957 DJ-3A Phoenix, AZ $7500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

Lee is selling this DJ-31, Serial #56337 12838.

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.

Because of working hours, Lee can be contacted between 3 PM and 7PM daily at 602-896-0729 They have a computer, but Lee is not computer savvy at all.”
