1956 DJ-3A/CJ State College, PA Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, DJ-3A

Looks like a 1956 DJ-3A body on a CJ-5 chassis (not how the frame is little longer than the body).

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/895304877957576

“Looking for offers. I have a Willys Jeep titled a 1956 but I’m told it’s earlier than that. This jeep runs and drives. Frame is good and body is good except for some welded patches. Also selling a 1968 fiberglass body, a 1978 CJ5 and a 1978 Bronco Custom. Trying to thin the herd for 2021. Again, looking for offers on one or all. If I recieve good offers they’ll sell… if not, I’ll have them restored”

1957 DJ-3A Orlando, FL No Price

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

This nice looking DJ-3A has a few mods, such as the wrong tailgate, incorrect turn lights. extra rear bumper, extra gauges and some changes within the engine compartment. The history listed isn’t quite right either.

https://www.orlandoautomuseum.com/sales/vehicles/3564/1957-willys-jeep-dj3a

“The Willys Jeep Truck is a truck made by Willys-Overland Motors from 1947 to 1965. The styling and engineering of the Jeep Truck was based on Willys’ existing vehicles, the Willys Jeep Station Wagon and the Jeep CJ-2A. The DJ-3A was introduced in 1955. It used the body style of the older CJ-3A, along with the L-134 engine. Unlike the CJ-3A, it came with either a column shift or floor shift three-speed Borg-Warner T-96 manual transmission. The DJ-3A”

Video of Bruce Agan’s Former DJ-3A Surrey

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

While looking for something else, I was pleasantly surprised with this video of Bruce Agan’s former 1964 DJ-3A Surrey. The video was posted in 2012, prior to his passing. He was the guru of Surreys and Galas for a time and his restoration (including all the interior fabric) is a testament to that fact. There are various photos of his Surrey, Surrey advertising, and other jeeps on Flickr.

1957? Flattie Fountain Hills, AZ $8995

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A

This is a 2WD jeep, but I don’t see anything that suggests it was a DJ-3A. It is an in-progress build that may have a reproduction body, as the body is not a DJ-3A body.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A

UPDATE: Still Available.

(07/14/2020) With 3-on-the-tree and 2WD it sounds like a DJ-3A. The solid back suggests it may have been a convertible model; yet the body has cutout in the rear wells consistent with having been mounted on an MB/GPW. Has the correct hand brake, but incorrect gauges. Has the correct front end, but incorrect rear end. Has the correct 2/3 1/3 seats for a convertible model. Has the incorrect windshield.

I am looking for a person that knows what a special find this is. Trust me I don’t want to post this for sale,but I want someone who can restore it back to glory.”

1946? CJ-2A? Bringhurst, IN $4250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $4250.

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

“I have this super cool old rare jeep. It’s a 1955 Willys Kaiser DJ-3A. Military 134L engine has been just rebuilt and runs great. It has been converted to 12volt and charges great. 3 speed T90 manual transmission works good. The wiring, lights, blinkers, brakes and emergency brake all work. Good oil pressure and temperature stays good. Can get in and drive anywhere you want. However there are some quirks… The gas gauge and speedometer don’t work. And this vehicle doesn’t have a title and will be sold with a bill off sale. There is also no windshield or tailgate.

1956 DJ-3A Salt Lake City, UT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** for $6000.

This is now listed on eBay 

(08/04/2018) It’s missing a few minor things, but over all is in pretty good shape. Has an odd set of hubcaps. As usual, it lacks the soft top. I’m beginning to wonder if people hated the soft top (the visibility would have been worse than a standard soft top), so they simply got rid of the soft tops. It’s listed as a 1957, but the serial number puts it as an early 1956.

“THIS IS A 1957 WILLYS DJ-3A. IT IS PART OF A LARGE COLLECTION OF EARLY WILLYS JEEPS THAT WERE ALL STORED AWAY OVER 33 YEARS AGO.

THIS JEEP IS ALL ORIGINAL WITH EXCEPTION OF THE SEATS. IT HAS A SOLID BODY, 4 CYLINDER 134 CI MOTOR, 3 SPEED TRANS WITH COLUMN SHIFT, AND 2WD.

THIS JEEP HAS BEEN UNUSED FOR MANY YEARS NOW. I PURCHASED IT MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE CONDITION OF THE BODY, VERY STRAIGHT WITH NO RUST. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN ANY RESTORATION. THIS JEEP RUNS GREAT, HOWEVER MAY NEED A NEW FUEL PUMP. 56337 10252”
