August 1962 Article on Hatari Dispatcher/Universal Tonka Toys

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features, Magazine, Old News Articles, toys • TAGS: .

As reported in this post, in 1962 the Tonka company launched the jeep models many of us owned as kids (and some of us still own as adults). It didn’t take long for Tonka to introduce specialized packaging as well. The August 1962 issue of Playthings Magazine highlighted three different Dispatcher Tonka Toys, with Hatari-themed boxes, that were for sale in the lobby of movie theaters while Hatari played in theatres.

1959 DJ-3A Dothan, AL $12,000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: Price dropped to $12,000.

(01/17/2020) Has a few updates, but a lot of stock DJ-3A Convertible, including the rare air filter. Note also the Kaiser speedometer (has a big K on it, but I don’t know what model used it). It doesn’t look all that bad (better than a new speedo would).

DJ-3A Hardtop Mount Kisco, NY $375

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $300. This looks to be the sliding type, based on the additional pic that shows the handle at the front of the door. Technically, this is the DJ-3A version. The CJ-5 version of the top had windows. But, I believe this would fit a CJ-5.

(07/25/2019) There’s some rust on this top, but I can’t tell how deep it is.

Year? DJ-3A Grasonville, MD $1000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

Looks like this has a 3B or a replacement windshield. Looks to be a post 1959 given the passenger side air intake. Am I just sleepy or does this have an odd heater setup?

Jim spotted these jeeps for sale. They were listed as part of a garage sale last month, but the ad is still up so maybe some or all the jeeps are still there. I’ve included a pic of the FC and of what appears to be a former airport baggage handling DJ-3A.

Thanks to Nick for spotting this garage sale. It occurred last weekend, but maybe some jeeps remain. The FC has potential. The yellow DJ-3A appears to have been a cargo loader.

1956 DJ-3A San Angelo, TX $800

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

This has a DJ-3A body and front clip. It may be a DJ-3A chassis, as it appears to have the rear tank in back. So, it may have a DJ-3A that has been converted to 4WD.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/293802601591842/

“Frame s/n 10248 good condition, no title, no motor, front and rear propelled axles with drive propellers, T90 transmission, model 18 transfer case, shift levers damaged, by previous owner, both cases will need to be gone thru for possible repairs. Body has holes in flooring and in hat channels, but can be readily repaired with just a little mig welding skill. 4 good CJ rims, axles roll easily. Also offering a CJ2A early block, s/n 23555 if not wanted, will deduct 200$ from 800$ total! Block has no cracks, face original never resurfaced, no pitting on head gasket surface area.”
