1963 DJ-3A Canton, Oh eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: This was on eBay in March of 2011 and for sale in Pennsylvania.  It has different tires now.

“1963 Willys Dispatcher DJ3A 2dr delivery car with 2-wheel drive, sliding side doors, lift up tail gate, very cute and has many applications. We were going to do a restoration on this and just don’t have time. This Jeep is pretty rough but comes with a set of new floor boards and we will accept any reasonable offer.  The Jeep does not run, but the engine is not stuck.  Both rear springs are bad and it currently has no brakes.upholstery needs done as well. We have the original chrome bumper and guards for the front (needs plating). It will need to be trailered for sure. <P> One of these in fully restored condition sold for $18000 on ebay last year.  SO, if you want an ambitious restoration project with an upside, here it is.  Call Bob for a good deal on this little, rare Willys.”

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220913603494

These are pictures from the previous auction.  At the very least, the DJ-3A no longer has a license plate.

DJ-3A & DJ-5 Etters, Pa Auction Sat Nov 19th

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, DJ-5 & DJ-6

Glenn wanted to share this auction with folks. http://kerrypae.com/auctions.html?select=upcoming&id=3

“The Auction is in Etters, PA just off I-83 south of Harrisburg and north of York. There’s more than 50 oldies to pick from including two DJ’s. In the picture it shows a DJ3A on the left and a LHD DJ5 on the right. Looks like the DJ3A shown in pix 35 and 36 has many usable part.  Emailing the auction company got nothing back, so I’m assuming they expect it all to go for junk. Hopefully someone local can snatch them. No Titles, just be prepared to move ’em quickly says the instructions.”

Modified Flattie

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A

Glenn spotted this one.  The flattie was being parted out, but only the frame and a few other parts are left.  The body parts have been sold.  I thought it was unusual enough that i would post it anyway. It appears to be part DJ and part CJ.

1961 DJ-3A Clinton, Tn **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $650

(10/27/2011) The seller believes these are CJ-2As, so I suspect they are DJs on CJs.

“1. CJ-2A Runs, needs carb rebuilt, floor pans, muffler system, gas tank, has one seat
2. Hardtop CJ-2A, have engine but out
Also have extra rolling frame with engine, transmission, transfer case, front and rear axles. Great winter projects.”

1946 CJ-2A/DJ-3A Leeward, HI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $100

I think this is a mix of DJ-3A and CJ-2A parts.

“according to the serial number this is a 1946 willys cj2A. It does not have a title so it is for parts only. engine is in it and complete but unknown and some parts are missing but still has tons of useable parts for someone restoring an old willys.Tub is pretty rusted out but grill fenders and other body panels are salvagable.

you must take the whole jeep no cherry picking It does roll freely to tow I just pulled it out and moved it to where it is now.”

Year? DJ-3A? Paradise, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1100.

This looks like a DJ-3A that has the solid back.

“Ok so here they are together for those of you who looked at my ad for the one before. I now have both in my yard. The complete vehicle has rust on floor and sides. Dont know what model it is. The motor is an F head.that had a new head put on it by the previous owner. It will start for you with some effort but smokes badly. I bought it that way from a friend of mine, got it started and drove it around my yard in 4wheel high and low. Brakes had been repaired but probably need fluid as the pedal goes to the floor. The extra tub also has rust but is in much better shape and easier to repair. The floor is rusted out on both sides to some extent and would need to be cut and new metal welded in. That tub has a tailgate as seen in the photos and is probably a CJ2a or 3a. Chassis only has the axles. No trans. Is a roller. The front hood, fneders and windshield plus grill come with it and can be seen on the flickr site at this link along with other more detailed photos of the jeeps”

1964 DJ-3A Arlington, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Unusual

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $2000.

(03/24/2011) It might not take all that much to get this body back to stock.  The engine looks nice.  The battery location is unusual and not really the best idea.

“Chevy 350 engine with 350 turbo transmission. Recently serviced, new plugs, new fuel cell, new fuel filter, new starter.”

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Back on eBay. Colin exchanged emails with the seller and learned this is a very early DJ-3A, as it is the 92nd DJ3A built in late 1955.

This is a nice DJ-3A that was found on the CJ-3B Page.

1962 DJ-3A Stanton, KY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

This is missing a tire and it looks as if the rear of the body is twisted.
