1959 DJ-3A Miami, Fl $950

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $950.

(10/10/09) Here’s a DJ-3A stick shift with a tailgate that doesn’t have 4 wheel drive.  Frankly, I’m not sure what’s stock and what’s not here.  If it is all stock, it’s an interesting find.

“1959 Jeep Willys Overland DJ3A, 4X2, stickshift in the column, new carburetor, needs a gas tank, has some rust but can be fixed. Was running recently with a plastic tank. 786-556-3668.”

1960 DJ-3A Tulsa, Ok **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: Price dropped to $350. I doubt this was ever a Gala, but it does seem to be a DJ-3A.  **SOLD**

The price is right!  This seems like a deal to me.

We our selling a 1960 Willys DJ-3A Surrey Gala. We bought it mainly for the body to build a rock crawler out of it. The origional color was pink. It has a CJ-2A windshield on it with an old Aluminum Hardtop (rare). This is a normal left hand drive 2wd Willys Jeep. The front axle is a straight axle and rides on leaf springs just like the 4wd Jeeps. It has a motor, but is missing many of the parts like the oil pan, head, etc. It is the Go devil Flathead 4 backed by a 3spd manual column shift trans with OverDrive. Since this is a DJ3A the rear of the Jeep is solid with no tail gate, this is factory. It does have all of the steering pieces and as a whole is pretty darn complete. Feel free to come check it out and make us an offer. The frame is in very good shape and the tub would easily be restorable. The floors are even in pretty good shape. The hood is probably the worst part (dented). These are very rare and it has all of its factory serial data plates. Comes with only a bill of sale.”

At least it runs.  It might be a mish-mash of parts or simply the wrong title, which explains the ’61 date also.

1963? DJ-3A Surrey? Rising Fawn, Ga eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

I’m not sure if this is actually a Surrey or not, but it’s definitely a 2 Wheel Drive DJ-3A.

“Up for bid is a Surrey Gala pink Willys Jeep. I do not know an exact year the Jeep was made (the year I put above was a guess). The Jeep was painted over but there is still lots of pink showing all over. The Jeep runs. Carburetor needs rebuilding it runs way to rich and leaks gas. The gas tank has rust in it and clogs up fuel filters. Column shifter is broken at top of shift handle. I have been shifting with vice grips, transmission shifts good and appears to have had been rebuilt, dope looks brand new and case has been cleaned to bare metal. Seat frames are very solid and springs seem in very good shape, steering wheel has some cracks in it. The windshield glass is broken and the windshield frame is very solid but it has some rust spots, the hood hinge was broken and somebody put screws in it. Bowl for air filter is missing. A hole for a radio was cut into dash. The body tub only has two holes rusted through, one on the right side at the body support above the fender step and the left side at top of wheelwell underneath a roll bar that was in it…. ”

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!!!”
