1956 DJ-3A Buffalo, NY **STATUS UNKNOWN**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. Status Unknown.

Here’s a DJ-3A in great shape. Note the frame is purple.

“First of all,I must start by saying that this NOT a post office jeep,. In 1955 &1956 Willys put out this vehicle & called it a Jeep Dispatcher / Delivery vehicle ,ideal for use in congested metropolitan areas. To me it’s just a cool little jeep. This jeep had a frame off restoration a couple years back,at that time the original owner changed the transmission from a manual 3 speed synchromesh to a turbo 350 automatic with a 6 volt system.The original transmission is included,every nut &bolt was saved just incase to switch it back. The jeep is in great shape & runs good. Just had it inspected in may 2013,Ican’t think of anything it needs,besides maybe a tune up. $500.”

1961? DJ-3A Ambulance Sint Truiden, BE 17,500 Euros

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

Marc spotted this unsual DJ-3A. The back has been extended and the dash contains a glovebox, but otherwise there’s lots of DJ-3A elements here. I didn’t know there were DJ-3A ambulances. Anyone ever seen one?

“Fully equipped DJ3A ambulance, well restored over the past years, very good technical condition, new tyres, good condition canvas softtop, etc…”

UPDATE:  Was priced at $6500. Status Unknown.

(05/12/2012) This looks like a very nice jeep.  Based on the location of the gas inlet in the back, I’m going to guess this started life as a DJ-3A.

1957 DJ-3A Anacortes, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was ‘For Trade’. **SOLD**

This seller has not put the title into his name yet.  This appears in good shape.

“I have a 1957 Willys DJ3A i would like to trade for a different project (i would like to get a 50s ford, chevy or dodge truck but will look at all), I have the original title in hand, i have not put it into my name yet because i was not sure what i was going to do with it and thought being the second owner of a rig meant something anyhow the Willys runs and drives, when i got it he started to convert it to 12 volt so it now runs and charges 12v but all the lights are still 6 volt so it will need to be rewired for 12v. it has min rust on the hood only the tub and rest of the body is straight with out rust. every thing other than the 12v system is original equipment. let me know what you have to trade, i would sell it but i cant seem to find a value on line for this to set a price so i will only trade for fear of getting the short end of the stick or giving someone els the short end.”

1958 DJ-3A Lake George, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

Based on the Serial Number this is technically a 1958.  You can follow the discussion here and here.

It doesn’t run at the moment.

“We have a 1957 Jeep Willys (Kaiser) DJ-2A Flathead 2WD in our barn. We are evaluating what to do with it but we are not interested in fixing it up. It has all the parts and was running (driven into the garage) but it is rough. We want to sell it but do not want to chop it up or part it out because it was running when we drove it into the barn about 4 years ago.”
