1960? DJ-3A Ventura, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3950. Might have been a Pepsi Surrey.

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.
Have original hubs W cromed, & more cromed parts for jeep!

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

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, MB

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**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

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.”

1965 DJ-3A Beaverton, OR $7999

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

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.”

“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

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

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**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

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:”

Year? DJ-3A Valley View, TX Estate Sale

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

Charles spotted this Surrey-like jeep. It looks to me like an early, basic DJ-3A to which someone added some surrey trimmings. No price or description provided, other than the seller describes it as a “1953”, which would be three years before the first DJ was introduced. Still, it looks like a fun rig to drive around town. It’s for sale the weekend of May 12-14.

2 DJ-3As Amelia, OH $1800

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

There are quite a few good parts here and the blue one runs.

“I have two Willys Jeeps for sale. Both for one price, will not separate. A 1962 DJ-3A & a 1965 DJ-3A. They are both restorable, but in rough condition. The 1965 (mostly blue) runs good an drives but is not complete. The 1962 (mostly green) has been sitting for
a long time and does not run but, it is complete except for the radiator, battery & tailgate. everything else is there and it rolls. These are Dispatcher Jeeps and are rear wheel drive. One is floor shift & the other is column shift. They are the old style flathead engines, flat hood & flat fenders.
If you want to build a Gala, or one of the other DJ models, This is all you need to start. I have clear titles for both.
Sadly, all glass has been broken out & there is a lot of rust. Check photos carefully. $1,800.00 cash, no trades, will not separate.”

“1964 Willys for sale. It has a chevy 350 engine in it. Here is the rundown. I have owned it as a project jeep for about 6 months. I overpaid for it (my fault), and paid $4,200 for it, I have put roughly $2,500 into it from parts and paying a buddy (mechanic) to help (not including my own time). I am selling it because I am trying to buy a plane ticket for my girlfriend to go to the East Coast to see her grandma one last time. So, basically I need the money. I am up front and honest about the condition of the Jeep. The good and the bad about it. Ill start with what I have done to it/what is good about the jeep. The jeep does run, and I would say it runs well, but obviously it is not a finished project.
-New radiator
-New alternator
-New battery and battery box
-New fuel tank
-New starter and solenoid
-New battery shutoff
-Rewired most of the wiring
-Updated registration
– Has a soft top, but I have never used it

UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/11/2017) This DJ-3A is actually a 1962 that sold in 1964. The trim ID indicates that it may have been a Surrey. Though it has an L-134, it’s a former industrial engine. The jeep has a few other modifications, including four wheel drive. Still, looks like a good price.
