1957 DJ-3A Lansdale, PA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1850.

This is a non-running jeep and has been converted to 4wd.

“1957 WILLYS JEEP DJ-3A 4X4 – RARE AND NEAT OLD JEEP WITH CLEAN & CLEAR PA TITLE!!!   I purchased this Willys Jeep just as it is, never did anything with it, and have too many other projects going, so I’ve decided to part with it. It is a very nice project for someone with more time and less projects then me. I can tell you what I know about it. This is a model DJ-3A V.I.N. #5633711806 Willys Jeep Dispatcher which makes it very rare and the fact thats its 4X4 a nice restoration project compared to a 2wd Dispatcher. Originally this particular truck was equiped with a complete steel enclosed cab/panel body (no side windows) and steel sliding doors (notice the original small running board area and full to floor foot opening that was on DJ-3A models with full cabs). The DJ-3A was based on the earlier (1949-1953) model CJ-3A Willys Jeep bodies not the later CJ-3B bodies normally used on other models after 1953. The complete and correct for DJ-3A models fold down windshield frame with glass is in the back (which appears to have been brand new and still in black primer) and has not been mounted though I do have the side mounting hardware to do so. The previous owner last ran and drove it, and had it PA inspected through 2006 though it has been sitting ever since. I tried to get it running but the engine appears to be seized from sitting. I suspect most likely the valves are stuck from the time it spent sitting which is common with these flathead engines. The carburetor appears to be a rebuilt unit and there is also an original used carburetor with it. The body is in decent shape for its age appearing to having work done to it here and there over the years. Someone over the years has cut out the vertical bars of the original grille and welded in steel mesh, personally I would prefer the original grille bars. The frame appears to be in pretty good shape being much better then most other early model Willys Jeeps I’ve seen over the years. It has the original (DJ-3A) rear mounted fuel tank with filler neck exiting out the right rear next to the tailgate”

1952 M-38 Glenburn, ME **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1600.

As you can see in the pics, this is a project.

“this jeep has a 2.5″ suspension lift. Buick 231 V6 swap with a t90 transmission and dana 18 transfer. Original military axles with 5.38 gears (dana 44 rear, dana 25 front). I have the data plates as well as the serial plate. New plastic gas tank. Frame is in perfect condition, fenders are great, hood is a little dented but not rusty, tub needs floor pan work and some minor panel work. I bought this jeep to build an offroad toy with but just purchased a wrecked Wrangler Rubicon and dont have the time to build two jeeps (plus I have a Wrangler unlimited for my daily driver). I am negotiable a little bit on the price but dont waste my time with ridiculous offers. I have a ton of pictures I can email to serious buyers, currently the motor is out and on a stand in my shop, fenders hood and grill are removed and stripped of paint. I had planned to wheel the jeep in the body shop soon and replace the floors and do the body work.”

1948 CJ-2A Eugene, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2650

(01/08/2010) Check out the front part of the passenger side frame rail.  It looks like a giant piece of plate has been welded onto to it.  I suspect that’s not there to make it go faster!

“This old Willys runs and drives like it did 62 years ago! This would be perfect for a restoration project as it is only slighty modified with the lift and very little aftermarket items, or as a TURN-KEY off road toy. I would keep it if I could but bills and other projects take priority unfortunetly. Please call or email with any questions or offers”

The Jeep CJ-4 at Hemmings

• CATEGORIES: CJ-4 CJ-4A, Unusual

A few years ago, Hemmings ran a post about an article they produced the CJ-4.  In the article, they discuss how the X-151 became the prototype CJ-4, the only one of it’s class made.  It was later sold to an employee, who later resold it to someone who stored it in a garage for years.

You can read all about it a Hemmings blog

Crack in my engine block?


This weekend I spent some time messing with my engine.  One of the concerns I have had was that the whitish smoke that still slips out of the intake manifold hasn’t gone away.  I had hoped that was simply the rings not sealing, but I don’t believe it is anymore.

While checking the engine closely on Saturday, I discovered that there was some whitish, oily residue on the roof of the oil breather, which suggests coolant in the oil.  My radiator level was also a little low. Between that, the smoke, and the fact that it runs a little rough when under pressure, I now believe that somewhere on my left bank there is a crack. I suspect it’s the REAL reason the seller of my engine stopped using it.

Fortunately, I have an extra 3.8L block that appears in good shape (I’m already using the heads and crankshaft).  I would have used that block initially, except that it’s bored .030, while my Hypereutectic pistons are made for a stock bore.  So, I guess I’ll go back to .030 bore and the pistons that came with that block.

So, I’m going to get my block dipped and cleaned, pull the engine, rip it apart, and put everything back together.  It sounds like some good weekend fun …. I’m might redo the radiator setup while I’m at it — I have a new idea for that.

“I got it from the ORIGINAL OWNER!!!!!! need some work, it has some easally repairable rust in teh front floorboard. I can fix it for a very resaonable cost (the right way, no hack job) or you can. its been in dry storage its whole life. chevy small block w/3speed and Warn overdrive. I also have a Jeep (buick) 225 v-6 w/ t-14 3spd and dana 20 transfercase from a commando that can go with it. It would not take much at all to have this thing on the road (or off the road). wiring is all there converted to 12 volt. drivetrain is all intact. I have the windshield (cracked) and top w/doors that are not in the photos. needs some brakes work. the roll bar is also frame mounted.
Make me an offer, please be reasonable because it is not very often you run across an original owner jeep of this era. I might, just maybe, possably take PART trade on this (totota stuff,chevy stuff ,tires, or running car, or something REALLY interesting)……but only maybe part trade. I do not want to sell thsi it is my dream jeep (especially when done) but I started a new business and need the $$$$$ Thanks for looking. email is the best way to get ahold of me right now.”
