1962? DJ-3A? Sevierville, TN $7500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

Lots of updates to this custom build. The body appears to be from a DJ-3A Convertible or a Surrey. The front frame rails have a curious shape; the chassis may not be a jeep chassis.

1964 RHD DJ-3A Shingle Springs, CA $1500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

This is a relatively rare right-hand-drive DJ-3A with an even rarer automatic transmission (see 4th pic… shifter to the right of steering wheel). Unclear how much value is here, but certainly some parts value at the very least. It has an f-head.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/773489700232581

“I had big plans for this cool little mail jeep but I have too many projects. It is a 1964 DJ3A dispatcher. They stopped making flat fender jeeps in 52 but they had so many parts left over they continue to make flat fender delivery vehicles into the mid 60s. It is very rare, I haven’t seen another one for sale. It does not run or drive, it is a project. I have a clean clear CA title in hand. The Jeep was last registered in 1985 so it is well out of the system.  any questions feel free to ask. Delivery available within reason.  i’m located in shingle Springs, Northern California”

Looks like a 1956 DJ-3A body on a CJ-5 chassis (not how the frame is little longer than the body).

1957 DJ-3A Orlando, FL No Price

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

This nice looking DJ-3A has a few mods, such as the wrong tailgate, incorrect turn lights. extra rear bumper, extra gauges and some changes within the engine compartment. The history listed isn’t quite right either.

https://www.orlandoautomuseum.com/sales/vehicles/3564/1957-willys-jeep-dj3a

“The Willys Jeep Truck is a truck made by Willys-Overland Motors from 1947 to 1965. The styling and engineering of the Jeep Truck was based on Willys’ existing vehicles, the Willys Jeep Station Wagon and the Jeep CJ-2A. The DJ-3A was introduced in 1955. It used the body style of the older CJ-3A, along with the L-134 engine. Unlike the CJ-3A, it came with either a column shift or floor shift three-speed Borg-Warner T-96 manual transmission. The DJ-3A”

Video of Bruce Agan’s Former DJ-3A Surrey

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

While looking for something else, I was pleasantly surprised with this video of Bruce Agan’s former 1964 DJ-3A Surrey. The video was posted in 2012, prior to his passing. He was the guru of Surreys and Galas for a time and his restoration (including all the interior fabric) is a testament to that fact. There are various photos of his Surrey, Surrey advertising, and other jeeps on Flickr.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A

UPDATE: Still Available.

(07/14/2020) With 3-on-the-tree and 2WD it sounds like a DJ-3A. The solid back suggests it may have been a convertible model; yet the body has cutout in the rear wells consistent with having been mounted on an MB/GPW. Has the correct hand brake, but incorrect gauges. Has the correct front end, but incorrect rear end. Has the correct 2/3 1/3 seats for a convertible model. Has the incorrect windshield.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

“I have this super cool old rare jeep. It’s a 1955 Willys Kaiser DJ-3A. Military 134L engine has been just rebuilt and runs great. It has been converted to 12volt and charges great. 3 speed T90 manual transmission works good. The wiring, lights, blinkers, brakes and emergency brake all work. Good oil pressure and temperature stays good. Can get in and drive anywhere you want. However there are some quirks… The gas gauge and speedometer don’t work. And this vehicle doesn’t have a title and will be sold with a bill off sale. There is also no windshield or tailgate.
