1958 DJ-3A Austin, TX $1200


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200. Relisted here.

No engine or trany. Not a whole lot of parts value either.

“1958 Jeep/Willys DJ3A 2 wheel drive. Frame has been repaired and boxed. Tub is rough but serviceable, other body parts need minor work. Body tag and frame stampings match clear Texas title. All tires hold air for the smooth and easy flat tow to your place. This is a project (a roller) no engine or transmission, Don’t come looking expecting to drive it home. These accept everything from a big block to a four banger. No parts please.”

1951 CJ-3A/DJ Columbus, OH **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $4500.

It appears this is a CJ-3A with a DJ-3A body.  Looks like a fun little rig. It is 2WD now.

“This 1951 Willys has been in the family for over 20 years. It’s a neat cruise around car perfect for parades. The complete driveline has been changed over to an early 90’s Ford Mustang. 4 cyc. motor-trans and rearend. The seats from the mustang were also used and reupholstered. This summer, we replaced all 4 tires and inner/outer tie rods. Possibly open to trades.

1960? DJ-3A Ventura, CA $3950


UPDATE: Still Available. Per Colin, 56337 18392 1960 DJ3A Yellow, floor shift, some modifications, bucket seats, chrome windshield grab bars, chrome front bumper. Could this have been a Pepsi Surrey? Very close to numbers of other Pepsi Surreys. 

This is owned by Sherri and had the DJ featured in a magazine (Four Wheeler?). At some point, this jeep was stolen. It was returned to her in poor shape. It needs some restoration.  (At least, that’s what I understand based on the text below).

“Willys Jeep flat head 4 NOT 4Wheel drive, 3 speed shift
Old military style clean engine like new, needs tires & seats mounted, have bikini top,
I have owned 40 years originally restored (40 yrs ago) & was in magazines “jeep was stolen & left in a wash for few years” when I got it back I started to restore again! Was told 1945 registered & pink slip 1960.

1943? MB/DJ Mt. View, CA $3000


Listed as a 1943, it looks like it has a DJ body. Chassis might be CJ.

“I have an old Jeep that is titled as a 1943 with the L-134 engine. Converted to 12 v, I put a new voltage regulator on it and the electronics are good, Starts right up and drives. Has Overdrive added as well and it does work. Title in hand.
I was going to use it as a desert toy for my girlfriend and I but in the end it is a little too primitive for what I had in mind. Has nice full back aftermarket seats, and a nice top.Comes with Dick Cepek spoke wheels with good tires on them, at least 80% tread left on them. Runs and drives but will need tail pipe added at some point. Gas tank has been moved to the rear. Will throw in new hydraulic jack and lug wrench as well.”

1957 DJ-3A Tucson, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2600.

(05/12/2017) Body looks great. Needs an engine and some other pieces. If this doesn’t come with the gas inlet, there’s one for sale on eBay. It’s a good price, too.  Seller also had a 1963 DJ chassis for sale. Interesting that it has a 0-10 speedo, which, if original to the jeep, would more likely make it an early 1956 model.

“1957 Jeep – Willys DJ3A. Rare 2w.d. “Dispatcher” model. Great candidate to restore as Surrey beach car. Major metalwork completed and presented in treated bare metal. Ready for finish bodywork and paint. Very complete except missing original engine. Has two transmissions, factory steps and curved front bumper. Rolls and steers. Clean Ariz . title. $2900.00. Also have another DJ3A rolling frame with matching 1963 title for $600.”

1956? DJ-3A Wichita, KS $4500


Listed as a 1950, I’d guess, based on that 0-9 speedometer, this is a 1956 or early ’57 DJ-3A.

“Here is a neat old 1950 willys jeep that runs fine. 2-WHEEL DRIVE. No rust. Check the pictures. $4,500”

“Jeep is like new, Frame off restoration in 2002. Perfect for a resort or campground maintenance vehicle or just to take to your local cruise night. 3 spd Manuel on the Column. You will not be disappointed.”

1965 DJ-3A Beaverton, OR $7999


It is a project. Has updated engine.

“This is not a ridiculous or heavy project otherwise the word “project” is relative.
If I can get what I am in it so far, I’ll let it go. I did not lose interest in it. In my case, the problem is space otherwise I do not have another project needing this space but the wife wants to be able to park inside. We have a 3 door garage and so much STUFF in it. Happy wife/Happy life.
I am cleaning my garage and that’s why I could not approach it to take better pictures but I am just testing the waters right now and that could be good for a potential buyer to be the first to see it LIVE and hopefully ending up buying it because even though these kind of Jeep projects are overall in demand but with the bad pictures I provided, for now, I bet you it wouldn’t be appealing to many until I put some more and better pictures next week.
I bought this a couple of years ago from the widow of the 68 y/o owner who suddenly died of a heart attack. he was fixing it putting new drums and brakes which are still in the rear cargo area. The Jeep has 52,000 miles on the body but he put an old Chevy motor from the late 50’s in it which could be from a Corvette of those years. The seats are all intact with one little tear but since they are old, I think they should be redone. It has some surface rust and little rusted through only on the driver side floor panel.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/05/2016) The red jeep has a DJ-3A body.

“two Willys jeeps for sale. They are rough but I was gonna make one out of the two. The blue one is a 1946 CJ2A, I have the data plate for it, but no title for either.

“I am selling my 1962 Jeep DJ3A project. It was originally a hard top mail jeep that was long ago converted to a normal CJ3A, with patches covering the original cutouts in the tub and an M38 windshield.

The frame is the original DJ frame (verified by stamping numbers) that has been fully boxed. It has recently been sanded, rust treated and coated. It has a square tube front bumper.

The Jeep was converted to 4×4 in the 70s, run by a couple owners, and then taken apart by the previous owner in 1981. The tub and all sheet metal was stored inside gathering dust until 2016 when I purchased it after he passed away. As a result of that, the tub is almost completely rust free, save for two small spots toward the back of the wheel wells. The original running gear (save for rear axle) is gone.

1956 DJ-3A Western Pennsylvania $3200


This DJ-3A Convertible is #30 (SN #10030). It looks like they opted for a hardtop rather than a soft top. It’s been sitting in a barn for many years, but looks pretty stock. The jeep has a Sears Aluminum Deluxe top, so hopefully the floors are in good shape. You’ll see on the engine an original dry-type air filter. The engine compartment also has a washer bag, suggesting this has a windshield sprayer; I wonder if it was foot powered? t only has a single vacuum wiper (the passenger side is a hand wiper).  It may make a great restoration project. The seller listed it on Facebook here:

1956 DJ-3A Smithfield, ME **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

Glenn’s selling his DJ-3A he named “Miss Willy”. Ann and I rode in it back in 2013, shortly before someone hit Glenn while driving it. Miss Willy was the 122nd one produced after our newest DJ-3A convertible “Paterson” (10366) and only 50 units before “Rusty” (10538). Like Paterson and Rusty, it too has the convertible body. Glenn’s hoping a DJ-3A lover will restore it.

“Miss Willy, a 2WD early production 2WD Jeep, was wrecked almost two years ago. Health issues have prevented me from rebuilding this California beauty. An almost perfect rust free body, nice floors and hat channels, a few scratches from flipping on its side, has frame, hood, windshield, fenders damage and probably some hidden problems. Brakes left 4 perfect skid marks in the wreck. Interior is usable and pretty. No Engine or Radiator included as I used them in another project. I shipped this from California awhile back so it’s an easy rebuild. Use your ideas and parts or I have a total of seven of these DJ3A’s to provide anything needed at extra cost. I can deliver this to you for reasonable cost as I’m going to The Great Willys Picnic in Kempton (Allentown) PA on June 11, 2017. The price is $2500 CASH. Open CA Title. Email for contact / details. Here’s wreck details from a favorite Willys Site:”
