1956 DJ-3A Dornsife, PA eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: This is back on eBay

(01/16/2011) “This is a 1956 Willy’s Dispatcher (DJ-3A) It has been completely restored from the frame up.  It is a 4-cyl, 2-wheel drive, 3-speed on column and has 6 volt electrical system.  Frame, wheels, rear, front I beam, cross members, bumpers, and most brackets are powder coated.  Engine and trans were rebuilt.  Has new wiring harness, seats, steering wheel, carpet, door glass.  Almost every part was serviced or replaced.  All exterior bolts are stainless steel.  The only thing that is not working at the present time is the sending unit in gas tank.  It is new but when I drained the gas tank to fix a fuel leak, the sending unit stuck on empty.  I also removed the horn to paint and powder coat.  There was so much work done it was too much to list, please feel free to ask questions.  Original mileage is 8287; roughly 300 miles of this is since restore was completed.  This vehicle is not inspected due to being registered in PA as a classic vehicle…it is not required.”

1967(?) DJ-3A Milwaukee, Wi $500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

No pics provided.  I believe the latest known production date for a DJ-3A is 1965, so not sure what this is.  Given the seller thinks the engine is a ‘1945 CJ3A’, it will takes some pics to sort this out.

“I have a 1967 DJ3A that needs to go, it was a project that never got done so it’s in pieces thats why I am selling as parts. ALL must go in one lot, this was the standard 2wd version with a flat head. I also have the drive train minus the engine of a 45 CJ3A. Sorry I do not have pictures to share right now”
