1961 FJ-3 Raleigh, NC **SOLD**



(06/06/2017) Looks like some money was spent on this rebuild.

“This is a very rare 1961 Willys FJ3 Postal Van with original F134 Flat Head 4 and Borg Warner automatic transmission.
There is none nicer – Just completed the professional Exotic Coach Specialist 4 year mechanical restoration includes a long block rebuild, transmission, rear end, 12 volt wiring harness, brakes, cooling system, new carb, custom aluminum fuel tank, custom seats and so on. Too much to list. Van runs and drives great. Odometer reads 74,000 but just approximately 100 miles since rebuild. Top speed is 55 mph. Own a piece of history with this right side drive postal van made by Willys in Toledo, Ohio.”

1961 FJ-3 Carrollton, GA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $1650.

(11/14/2016) Worth a look. There could be parts value at the very least.

“Set up for a V8 Chevrolet Automatic. Has normal rust. Pure nostalgia! Some of the pictures are the refinished product from the internet. Mine is the one with rust. A great winter project!”

1963 FJ-3A Phoenix, AZ $36,000


UPDATE II: Still Available.


Jesse noted that, “It was originally built in the 70s by my friend Gary Jack. He worked for the US Postal Service his whole career. When he retired, the tired FJ3 was also retired, so it went to scrap. At the time the FJ3 Postal FleetVans did not have the approval of the federal DOT and especially they did not have the approval of California DMV, because of the right hand drive and the seated / standing up driver operation. He was able to sneak out the scrapped pieces of the FJ3 that he had driven during his career, and a few others, enough to recreate and build a dream that he had during his career, to build a chopped top race truck. He did that. Gary and the FJ were a regulars at Riverside Raceway for a lot of years. In the 80s to the 90s this same FJ3 became a top NSRA street rod.”


“This 1963 Jeep FJ-6A custom mail truck is “Delivering Hope” for charity. No expense was spared to take this iconic US Postal Office Fleet van and give it the modern upgrades and conveniences. Featuring a 350 Chevy engine. Cox Charities is committed to building, strengthening and investing in metropolitan and rural Arizona communities by raising and granting funds and mobilizing employee giving and selfless service since its inception, Cox Charities has awarded $5 million in grants to non-profit organizations that impact our community primarily through youth education programs, thus solidifying the Cox Communication – Arizona commitment to the communities it serves. **ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT COX CHARITIES** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 6:00PM ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 2014**”

1965 FJ-6 Colorado Springs, CO **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $600.

Not sure how much value is here.

“For sale is a rare FJ-6 Mail Truck. So we’ll star with rarely does not necessarily equate to value. This mail truck is sold for parts or repair. There is an engine block with no head and no transmission. Both axles an extra Whiting roll-up door; extra front and rear bumper are included. Most of the glass is included. There is enough here to do a restoration.”

1966 FJ-6 Fleet Van Williamsburg, KY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2250.

Craig shared this one. Runs but could use some work.

“For sale or trade: 1966 Kaiser Jeep FJ-6 Fleetvan with its original F-134 Hurricane 4 cyl. engine and automatic transmission and two wheel drive. It apparently was a parcel delivery or mail truck. It’s not ready for the highway, but it does run and appears to have low miles. The body is very solid and made of aluminum or galvanized metal. The left side window is out and the drivers window (right side) needs repair. The rear slide-up door is in good shape but needs some adjustment. This would make a really cool ice cream truck or concession truck. I’m asking $2250 or will consider trade. Let me know what you have.”

1948 CJ-2A (and FJ?) Bogata, TX


UPDATE: The jeep didn’t sell on eBay. It’s back for sale here:

Mike shared this auction of a CJ-2A with a fiberglass body. In the background he spotted an FJ. It’s unclear if that is purchasable or not, but I was able to track down the gas station in Bogata. There’s also a pic at the bottom of this post.

“1948 willys cj2a jeep, has a fiberglass tub, so no rust through on body, chevy 350 v8 engine, was last cranked about 6 months ago, vehicle has been sitting in my shop for several years, needs a new ignition switch wired up, gas tanks hooked back up an some brake work, currently they are not working.. like I say the jeep has been sitting for several years an may need some tinkering here an there to get back on the road again.. the motor ran strong in it, has long tube headers, mild cam, 4 barrel edelbrock carb, dual point setup, it would be a great project for someone, I just don’t have the time for as many projects I have, so thinning the heard a little, have clean title 1948 in hand for the jeep, buyer responsible for pickup or shipping,”

This includes a gov data plate and a serial number plate.





“This listing is for my 1963 Willys Jeep FJ3 Fleetvan as-shown. These are getting to be super hard to find in any condition,sadly though this one needs to be completely restored. I bought it in Alabama 3-months ago and AL does not issue titles on older vehicles,so I do not have a title with this vehicle. Ebay required that I do not leave that option blank so I put Salvage. I am just starting to realize that I don`t have the time for all of my vehicles that I wish I had.

Paul bought this FJ-3 back in 2014. He’s restored it beautiful. He wrote: “Her new home is in Orange County, California. This FJ3 is now a daily driver and is used both in my business, and as a fun vehicle to take to shows and cruises. It is looking a little different now. It is still running the original engine and transmission. The rear end is now a freshly rebuilt Dana 44 with taller gears so it can do a decent highway. On the exterior, all the rusty metal has been replaced and the rear side windows have been removed. The rear door is still a wood roll-up, but it is now clad with aluminum sheet to make it maintenance free.”

(09/28/2016) This Vincent Van goes.

“This cute little delivery van started it’s life in 1962 working for the Post Office as a mail route delivery van. It is on a jeep chassis, with a jeep 4 cylinder engine and automatic transmission.

1962 FJ-3 Coatesville, IN **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Starting bid price of $14,900 has no bidders. Was on eBay.

A few of the gauges don’t work.




“”Willy” as he’s known, is a 1962 Jeep Fleetvan built for the postal service by Willys up in Toledo, OH. They only built 100 of these trucks so this is one of literally a handful that are still out there. Not only that but this one has been built from the ground up with a small block 350 engine mated to a turbo 350 tranny and a camaro rear end. Starts right up and runs like a champ with plenty of power for this little mail truck. Could actually be a daily driver if you don’t mind that there aren’t many creature comforts.

1961 FJ-3A Wilmington, CA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE:  **Status Unknown** was on eBay

As a street vehicle, someone may enjoy it. But, as an offroad vehicle, well, someone didn’t think this idea through.

“Up for auction is a ultra rare 1961 Jeep FJ3. This legendary Jeep was made for the US postal service. The FJ3 sits on a Toyota 4Runner chassis also with the power plant and drive train (22R). This build was made with an off road purpose in mind and with a “rock crawler” vision at the fore front. It can be taken any way the new owner desires. We decided to clear coat the patina in order to preserve the original US Postal colors. This is a fabulous project vehicle that is sure to draw tons of attention. Its a time capsule. We haven’t touched any mechanical, but the vehicle does start from the ignition. We have not hooked up the drive shaft to drive it or installed shocks. The FJ3 has been in Northern California for many years in the dry climate which minimized the rust. However, the combination of the US Mail colors and light rust make for a fantastic patina that you could not replicate yourself. The off road wheels and tires are nearly new. The overall presence of the van is one of a kind for sure.”
