Year DJ-3A? Shelbyville, TN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $10,500

(09/03/2010) The large dashboard speedometer and the cutdown entrances for driver and passenger suggest to me this is a DJ-3A body. Also, the windshield looks like the front portion of a DJ Hardtop.  (see what it is supposed to look like on the CJ-3B).

“Custom Jeep Willys. 10,500 OBO gets this awsome jeep. New 3 spd T-90 Transmission and Dana Transfer Case, Tilt wheel, Power Steering , 2.3 Ltr Engine. Too much to list. Must see. Serious enquiries only please.”

1957 DJ-3A Heber City, Ut $1300

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

Brett spotted this project.  I think at the very least the body is a DJ-3A.  However, it shouldn’t have a PTO or the CJ-2A windshield.  So, I’m gonna guess this is a combo vehicle of some type — probably a DJ-3A/CJ-2A.

“great shape willys flat fender $1300.00. needs some tlc. the axles were just totally gone through at six states. drivelines rebiult. basically i was going to do a ground up restoration but i have a baby on the way and this needs to go. so the frame, axles total under carrige is all done and undercoated. i just bolted the body back on without finishing it. so if your wanting a cool project that is started out right call. it does also have a pto winch. price these out and you are getting a hell of a deal. i have 800.00 just in the seat frames and having them upolstered. call me with any questions. thanks for the interest.”

Army Depot DJ-3A? Alexander City, Al eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Unusual • TAGS: .

The starting bid on this unusual DJ-3A is $2499.  I would be VERY interested to see the underside of this body to see what exactly happened to the rear of this vehicle.  This has a picture of some kind of Atlanta Army Depot tag, but I don’t know if this is real or not. Note that I had to lighten parts of a couple of the pics, which is why they look a little odd.

“I am not sure what year model this is or model. I am going by what I have been told and what I have seen on the internet. I think it is a DJ-3A 2 wheel drive delivery Jeep somewhere around a 50 model. It does run and drive I have driven it around the parking lot some. I think it has a blown head gasket. I have a new extra engine still in the crate flat head 4 cylinder engine and 3 speed manual trans. I have this for sale local and will end it if it sales. It has some rust in the floors and a few other places as you can see in the pics. I do not have a title. Alabama does not issue a title for a vehcile older that a 75. I will issue you a Notarized Bill of Sale. E-mail me any questions you have.”

Year? DJ-3A Homer City, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This is listed as a 1949 CJ-2A, but this appears to be a DJ-3A (note the dash and the front bumper for starters).  The VIN number is particularly strange, as it looks like it has two different type of numbers.  Note how the 2nd set of numbers is very light and of a different font than the first set of numbers.  Something seems amiss to me.

1960 DJ-3A Pennsylvania **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Jeep Rods, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE:  This now lives on the East Coast. I got to examine it up close at the 2013 Bantam Festival. The work is excellent. It was bought for $9000. It has more of a surrey look to it now.

I used the IMCDb.org site to attempt to locate an image of the jeep to the right from a shot in the movies.  You can see a DJ-3A from Blue Hawaii (not a very good shot). Or the same shot enhanced and cropped to the left.  Here’s a link to a shot of the Nutty Professor’s DJ-3A.

This flat fender (the one on the right) falls into the ‘unusual jeep’ category.  Apparently, it’s a movie star!

1947 CJ-2A/DJ-3A Body Napa County, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1300

(05/25/2010) The body appears in good condition, but hard to tell from this far away pic.

“I have a 1947 CJ-2A with a later DJ style body on it. It has the L-134 flathead motor, along with an upgraded Solex carb that many people swapped on to these engines. Has new carb rebuild kit, new spark plugs, new points, new electric fuel pump, new fuel lines, and about 80% left on some 31″ mud terrains. The bad news is a blown head gasket, however if you’ve ever seen one of these engines, it is probably the easiest thing to replace on a Willy’s, and despite this it will still drive around town, just not very far down the highway. It has some dents and dings, but verry little bad rust anywhere. Great for around the ranch or around town.”

1957 DJ-3A Tucson, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1600.

“This is a DJ3A jeep that’s had the CJ2A 4X4 Drive train installed. Original 4-134 flathead runs great, T90 3 spd trans and D18 2 spd transfer appear to be good. I drained and replaced the oil and it was Not milky (no water). I took the original (rare) DJ hard top off to use it for hunting, I still have it and it goes with the Jeep. Replaced the rubber brake lines and flush the brake system so it has brakes again. Original 16″ wheels with the spare. It is currently licenced but need the taillights fixed (wires) to be street legal. It’s a cool Jeep, just don’t have the time or money to do it justice (and space).”

Bruce Finds Some More Las Brisas Surreys

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

Bruce forwarded me these unusual and rare posts cards of some unusual Surreys (here’s a compilation of Surrey & DJ info). Bruce has attempted to contact the Las Brisas Manager to learn if they have a historian of sorts for their jeeps in use, but he hasn’t had any luck. If anyone has any Las Brisas connections, please let me know!  Thanks for sharing Bruce.

Check out the guy driving the jeep, a stick no less, carrying a tray of food!

Brian writes, “These 2 jeeps offer clues but also leaves one with more questions. The extended tub, tailgate, baby moon hubcaps, valance panels, and an absence of chrome bumpers.  Also, there was no date stamp on the card, but it looks to be from the late/early 50-60s.

On the back of the postcard, written in both English and Spanish, it reads Room service by jeeps- unique at hotel Las Brisas in Acapulco where every room a has it’s own pool.”
