Rare DJ-5 Yellow Surrey

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features, Old Images Jeeping, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Originally published 12/13/2011

Bruce provided this research on Surreys and found a picture of this very rare Surrey. Of the DJ-5 Surrey he writes, Only 30 were built on what looks like the dj platform.  It looks to be 2wd using the full ‘JEEP’ wheel cover, rear spare, steps, 60/40 seats up front & rear seat, daffodil yellow & white interior & candy striped yellow & white top w/fringe.

According to the Saskkatoon Star Phoenix June 17 1968: “For many years a familiar  sight south of the border particularly at southern hotels & resorts, the ‘Jeep’ Surrey has been introduced to Canada, Kaiser Jeep of Canada Limited, Windsor, Ont has produced 30 for a special program.  Painted daffodil yellow & white interior, its chief characteristic is a  yellow & white candy striped fringe top.  It can also be outfitted w/fully-enclosing convertible top for winter motoring.”
