1956 DJ-3A Billings, MT **SOLD** (To Us)


Ann has suggested we leave the paint job as is for now and call it “Rusty.” Sounds good to me.

1953 CJ/DJ-3A Dry Ridge, OH $2500


Looks to be a DJ-3A body on a CJ 4WD chassis. While a true DJ-3A installed on a 4WD chassis from the factory has yet to be found in the US, the DJ-3A group did learn about a DJ-3A with 4WD that was sent overseas. So, we are wondering if one or more were sold in the US as well.

“Frame off restoration, motor rebuilt, new axle seals and bearings, all new brakes, will lock up all 4 wheels. Body in really good shape, very usable, solid floor.
Runs and drives great, still needs lights wired, gages, a roll bar, maybe a windshield. All the hard work is done, ready for finishing touches.
$2500 or best offer, more than that invested.”

Year? DJ-3A? Cuba


This jeep is for sale in Cuba (I doubt there are many eWillys readers there). The absence of a standard filler inlet on the driver’s side made me wonder if this was a DJ-3A.

1957 DJ-3A Cartersville, GA $6500


Worth a closer look.

“For Sale 1957 DJ 3A $6500 OBO
Frame off restore, no rust nice paint. Flathead 4 cylinder, 3 speed column shift. 95% done, great shape, has a fuel issue, probably bad gas.
It has just been a porch pretty for a year. We are playing with the fact to cut it in half and stretch it and drop a big block in it and make a bad ass trail rig out of it. We’d figured Id throw it out there for sale 1st.
The inside pics are taken today and the discoloration is all just dirt and pollen. ”

1958 DJ-3A Hutto, TX $1500


Has a Toyota engine and lots of surface rust.

“1958 Jeep DJ-3A. This is a left hand steer, two wheel drive variant of the flat fender CJ-3A . It looks the same but is much easier and less expensive to restore than it’s four wheel drive brothers. It currently has a Toyota 20R motor and 4 speed transmission, it’s not running so I don’t know the condition of these items. Mounts and adapters are readily available to install any engine and transmission that you’d like (I have a Chevy 4.3 V6 that you could negoiate me out of). The old gal is a bit ruff but completly restorable. Tow bar included, tows smooth and easy.”

1965 DJ-3A Lake of the Ozarks, MO **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $6500.

Michael spotted this DJ. It hasn’t been run in a while.

“Completely unmolested, clean, straight, no rust, no dents great barn find specimen. This is an all original, all numbers matching, 27000 actual mile Willy’s. Engine hasn’t run in a while but little doubt that it will. It odes turn over, it does have compression and fire. I took the Jeep for trade on some work I done. I have no place for it and no time to refurb.

This would be an incredible father son recon project. It’s all there. I even have the original jack, lug wrench and spare tire.

The right rear brake is locked up.
Title is current and clean. VIN 24242. Matching on frame rail and VIN tag.
Original color was white but it has been painted.”

1950 CJ-3A/DJ-3A Thomasville, NC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5250.

Jim spotted this one. The 3A has a DJ body.

“This is a project that would be fairly easy to complete if someone has the time. Its a parts jeep to my knowledge an early willys frame and a later model body. The frame is in great shape and body is as well except for a few dents and rust spots in floor. I have a Willy engine that was completely rebuilt and was running smoothly when i took it out. I have tons of parts for it and have done a lot of work but like I said just don’t have time to finish it! I’ve done all the hard work, trust me when I say it will be easier to rebuild than it was to take apart! Please call, txt, or email with any questions as this jeep is completely disassembled and I can take more pics and answer or get answers to any questions you might have! This is a PROJECT JEEP! 5250 OBO”

1962 DJ-3A Magnolia, OH **SOLD**


UPDATE II: **SOLD** Was $3000.

UPDATE: Charles reports that Steve’s 1962 had the same Dispatcher sticker in a different place. My guess is that the sticker could be added to the jeep by the owner.

Doug spotted this one.

“1962 Willys 4 X 2 Jeep Dispatcher (DJ3) Right now the right fender and grill has been removed due to an altercation with a fence post!! Fender can be repaired but the grill was not repairable.
