1959 DJ-3A Surrey in Burn Notice and on eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This is back on eBay at a much lower price.

Burn Notice fans will interested in this Surrey. According to the eBay ad it was used on the set of Burn Notice, though no one has seen it appear in an episode (and only two episodes of the series left: sept 05 and sept 12 on the USA Network). We do know that the producer had been hunting a surrey for the show, but never learned what happened to their search. Well, I guess they found one.

(09/10/2013) Brian’s photos of a 1961 DJ-3A Surrey:

Brian writes, “It’s not the same Jeep. My top has never had an i.d. tag on it which i always thought was odd. When i bought the top, the Jeep was only in Florida for a year or two at the time. Before that it was in Virginia where it had spent most of it’s life, the same State that the top was built in. The story was something like: a lady bought the Surrey new in ’61 and then (i think) it was sold to a serviceman around the time of Vietnam. He put the Jeep in storage and it sat there for well over 30 years, hence why it was in such good shape. I can’t remember who had the top put on it. 
 
I found two more pics that show a bit of the pink paint, in the rear cargo area some is showing on the ribs and the front floor shot shows a line of pink around the body seam. I had underhood pics that showed alot of pink paint that the cheaper paint didn’t adhere too well to but i can’t find them.

Year? DJ-3A? Seymour, TN $4500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

Hard to see the condition from just his one pic. The seller lists it as a 1951 in the title, but also notes that it only had 2WD.

“We’ve owned this Willys since 1989, and it has been part of our family for a very long time. It has never been a 4×4, and is powered by a low mileage 85 mustang 4 cylinder engine, automatic transmission, and rear end. The computer, electric fan, and electric fuel pump are installed and working properly. The Willys is fun to drive around town, especially with its train horn and siren, animal, mic horn we have installed in it. The body of the Jeep is nicely painted red in color with custom pinstriping. The interior is just as nice and is gray cloth including the custom rear seat. The doors have been fabricated and are removable. We have a custom bikini top to fit the Willys, but no official top. We have used it in parades or driven it around just for fun. At this time we are not really interested in trades. Please call or text for more pictures or further inquiries @ (812) five 2 five – 9369.”

1964 DJ-3A Belleville, NJ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(03/26/2010) “As mentioned above this DJ3A comes in very rare automatic transmission variation, 4×2 WD, with right hand drive which was a special order of Public Works Departments through out the country, this vehicles were also used by delivery agencies and post offices. When I got this Willys I was skeptical about if auto tranny is original or not but later in my research I came across official Willys document called Consolidated Specifications for Commercial Vehicles and it clearly stated that in fact auto transmission was an option for DJ3A line of vehicles (I can email this document to any interested party). Also I found pictures of very same Jeeps with canvas half tops, right hand drive and auto tranny at the Los Angeles Department of Public Works web sight on the page related to the history of the department (it’s a low resolution pictures but I attached them to this listing) . . . Much more history on eBay”

1956 DJ-3A Buffalo, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

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.”
