1950 Wagon Jeep Rod Queen Creek, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Willys Wagons

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000

At the very least it needs paint and glass.  Other than that it appears a good deal of work has been done.

1950 Willys Panel Delivery: Extremely unique running and driving project. Makes a great ratrod, or take it to the next level for a sweet street rod, lots of potential!

The top is chopped (excellent job), windshield is in, no side windows or rear windows, flat glass – should be inexpensive to have glass cut for it. It has shaved door handles, custom front and rear bumpers, wood floor in rear, bucket seats, console and a tilt steering column.

Small Block 318 w/automatic transmission, dual exhaust, no smoke, no leaks, no ticks, runs smooth.
I have the other 2 matching “old school” wheels that match the rear.”

1960 DJ-3A Pennsylvania **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Jeep Rods, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE:  This now lives on the East Coast. I got to examine it up close at the 2013 Bantam Festival. The work is excellent. It was bought for $9000. It has more of a surrey look to it now.

I used the IMCDb.org site to attempt to locate an image of the jeep to the right from a shot in the movies.  You can see a DJ-3A from Blue Hawaii (not a very good shot). Or the same shot enhanced and cropped to the left.  Here’s a link to a shot of the Nutty Professor’s DJ-3A.

This flat fender (the one on the right) falls into the ‘unusual jeep’ category.  Apparently, it’s a movie star!

“ALL METAL AND 1,885 POUNDS.
