DJ-3A Tops Bows and Clips Black Canyon City, AZ

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Parts • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/pts/d/black-canyon-city-jeep-dispatch-dj3a/7278137833.html

The top bows are $700 a set. A price for the top clips were not included. Both the both bows and the clips are for the DJ-3A convertible model (solid back and CJ-3B-like windshield with twist-knobs across the top). The seller only has a few sets made. He notes that he isn’t making any money on them and has been more than willing to share information on the insights he gains trying to make his top.

The soft top is something custom the seller had made by an upholsterer. It took him some work to redesign and properly fit the top so that it would fold up and connect to the windshield properly, yet also fold down and attach to the body.

Here is pic of the reproduction bows vs. the original black bows:

1950? Willys Sedan Delivery Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

There’s no form number on this Willys Sedan Brochure, but based on the style, I would say it’s a 1950 brochure. This is the front of the brochure. Once I receive on additional brochure, I’ll demonstrate the series of 1950 wagon/truck nose brochures.

1950-willys-sedan-delivery-no-form-number-brochure1-lores

This is the back fo the unfolded brochure:

1950-willys-sedan-delivery-no-form-number-brochure6-lores

When unfolded vertically, this page appears:

1950-willys-sedan-delivery-no-form-number-brochure2-lores

When unfolded once more, this time horizontally, this page appears. One interesting detail is that the other similar brochure refer to the engine as “new”, but this one refers to the engine as “Famous”. Thus, I suspect this is a late 1950 brochure.

1974 DJ-5C Gainesville, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000.

This looks in pretty good shape. There are a variety of DJ-5s on Facebook for sale, unlike Craigslist which doesn’t show any for the southeast region. Listing jeeps (and other items) on FB, and not Craigslist, continues to be the trend.

“This 1974 Jeep/Am General is powered by a 232 inline six with a Borg/Warren Automatic Transmission. Don’t have doors and no glass except in front window. Has 2 reconditioned seats and new mirrors. Does not have power steering or power brakes.”

Year? Jeepney Philippines $80,000 (Scam?)

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Okay, it was listed in Alabama, but after some more research (thanks to Galen’s message) it is clear this should be listed in the Philippines. It may be a scam (with the scam the high price), but I can’t tell for sure …

I assume the seller is kidding when he writes “high performance machine”? I imagine the price is a placeholder?

“I have this gem of a jeep here, rust free 1945 willy’s cj2a with all original tub, body panels, axles, motor, trans, t-case, and much more. Flat head 6 3 speed. It has been 12v converted and a new carb and shocks and a few small things here and there, but I’d say about 90% original. Great restoration project. It runs and goes into gear hooked up to a gas can but there are fuel leaks, and the throttle and breaks are not connected. Might be able to fix it but I’m seeing what I’ll get for it as is.

Negotiable on price, but based on what everyone is telling me about this it’s worth every penny I’m asking and then some. Would easily go for 10k with minimal work giving her a tune up (which I have two boxes of new parts to do so) and can fetch upwards of 30k fully restored, which this is the perfect rust free body and frame to do that to. I want to restore it myself but I have too many projects, took this one in on trade.”
