1963_dj3a_surrey_houstonThere are a TON of great pictures of this Surrey.  I don’t think I’ve seen this Surrey listed previously, but I might have missed it;  it looks like no expense was spared in it’s restoration.

“Purchaced by Wayne Davis because his wife liked the way it looked, this Gala-Surrey was purchaced at a small Jeep dealer in Cleveland, Texas, a full restoration began with an unlimited budget. The car was brought back to its original color scheme of pink and white as no detail was overlooked.

DJ-3A with a tailgate Huntsville, Al **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A

1955_dj3a_huntsvilleUPDATE:  **SOLD**

I include this jeep as it’s a rare example, in my opinion, of a DJ-3A with a tailgate.  I’ve heard these existed, but hadn’t had picture proof until I saw this one.  The thing that clued me in was the large speedometer.  Once I saw that, I went back and read the description.

“For Sale is my 1955-1964 DJ3A/CJ2A/CJ3A combo Jeep that I use on my Farm for general weekly transportation over the last several years. Jeep is stored inside my barn at all times on my farm. If you are looking for a show vehicle with matching numbers this is not the ride for you. However, if you are looking for a good solid original Willys flat fender Jeep driver for general use, read on. All body parts except the tool box are original Willys manufacture. Body tub, fenders, hood, tailgate, and front grill are original DJ3A that have had a paint job using Mil Standard Sherwin Williams OD CARC paint. Body tub is solid as the DJ3A had a full hard top which protected it from the normal weather related rust experienced by most soft top Willys vehicles…..”

1960 DJ-3A Janesville, WI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

 

“This jeep has led a pampered life and shows only 11,255 on the odometer. The previous long time owner signed the title as ACTUAL miles.  I do not have any other records or documentation of the miles and it is sold today as “Miles Exempt”.  Looking at the body, and original interior it appears to be a valid claim.  The Jeep was painted and it looks great.  We had a reliable long time Jeep Mechanic go over the car and bring the Jeep to safe operating condition based on the previous long term Museum style storage.  It runs and drives GREAT!!!”

1963 DJ-3A Surrey — Saint Petersburg, Florida eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

On first glance this looks almost brand new.  But, on a closer look I realized someone couldn’t resist modifying it by changing the windshield.  At first, I thought the windshield was raised and attached to an added bracket; however, after looking at more pictures,  I’d say someone tried to make a CJ-3B windshield fit on it. On such a rare and good looking jeep, I can only wonder why??

“This ultra rare 5000-mile documented original 1963 Willys spent the majority of it`s life on a golf course in Florida. It is believed to be one of the few Surrey Gala models. At some point in it’s life it has had a color change and top upgrade. For the last 15 years it has been part of a private collection. It has never been offered for sale before. It is in excellent mechanical condition and presents beautifully.”
