1963? DJ-3A Surrey? Rising Fawn, Ga eBay


I’m not sure if this is actually a Surrey or not, but it’s definitely a 2 Wheel Drive DJ-3A.

“Up for bid is a Surrey Gala pink Willys Jeep. I do not know an exact year the Jeep was made (the year I put above was a guess). The Jeep was painted over but there is still lots of pink showing all over. The Jeep runs. Carburetor needs rebuilding it runs way to rich and leaks gas. The gas tank has rust in it and clogs up fuel filters. Column shifter is broken at top of shift handle. I have been shifting with vice grips, transmission shifts good and appears to have had been rebuilt, dope looks brand new and case has been cleaned to bare metal. Seat frames are very solid and springs seem in very good shape, steering wheel has some cracks in it. The windshield glass is broken and the windshield frame is very solid but it has some rust spots, the hood hinge was broken and somebody put screws in it. Bowl for air filter is missing. A hole for a radio was cut into dash. The body tub only has two holes rusted through, one on the right side at the body support above the fender step and the left side at top of wheelwell underneath a roll bar that was in it…. ”

1949 CJ-2A Longview, WA **SOLD**


year_cj2a_longviewUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2800

This looks like a fun little CJ-2A.  I wonder if the bars attached to the windshield from the roll bar are intented to support the windshield?  It’s a good strategy to help reduce stress on the windshield.

“Bright yellow.12 volt conversion with new 1 wire alternator.rebuilt starter, all light including turn work great. Has stoway towbar that folds flat on front bumper.(NO TOP) new master and brake cylinders. Tires are larger radial on white spoke wheels(NO SPARE) New e-brake cable yet to be installed along with 4 leaf after market springs.”

1951_cj3a_davenportUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000.

This looks like a nice enough jeep that has been ‘restored’ nicely.  However, the claim that this is all original except for tires and wheels is not true (12 volt system, fender flares, the rear lights, and I’m sure more).

Wayback Machine: Old Jeeping Photos from late 70s

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing • TAGS: , , .

Here’s some great old photographs from the 1970s.  They document some of the events attended by the Good Time Four Wheelers.  The image below was from the 3rd Annual Green River Valley Jeepers in 1976.  I attended one of their playdays in 1981 (I think).  It was located between Black Diamond and Enumclaw;  I wouldn’t be surprised if the area is full of homes now.

I’m suprised that as late as ’76 they weren’t requiring cages to race.  It wouldn’t be too long before they were required.  View all the pics (lots of desert dogs) at the pnw4wda forum.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“This is a 1954 Willy’s Jeep CJ-3B, that’s been lifted, v-8ed and customized. This thing starts and runs great and is great fun to drive! The motor and transmission are Chevy 350/350, and both work great. The duals sound great without being obnoxious.  It has power steering, and brakes, and the heater’s hooked up. I’m no jeep expert, but the remainder of the drivetrain appears fairly original equipment to me, other than obviously it was lifted. This Jeep sports 35″/12.50″/15″ radial tires and aluminum wheels, both in excellent shape. ”

Today it’s been all about parts!  Here’s another project or possible parts jeep.

“For sale is my 1948 CJ3A Jeep. 4WD. I began the restoration process four years ago and have been unable to continue due to family and job. The old rusted body was removed and a NEW steel body set on the frame (not attached yet) The engine has about 500 miles on a professional overhaul and runs perfect and was not removed from the frame. The entire drive train is still intact. The tires are military NDs and is very good shape. The fuel tank was new just prior to beginning the process. The spare is good the wheel is not. The glass is good. I also have a full metal tip with door (roll sown windows) which is bolted on in the winter. It too is in good shape and may be included for $200.00. If you are so inclined, I also have a full frame and drive train (intact) from a 1953 Jeep Overland Wagon. It has an overhead cam engine, the same transmission and change over case. I’ll throw it in for another $100.00!”
