1959 DJ-3A Surrey in Burn Notice and on eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This is back on eBay at a much lower price.

Burn Notice fans will interested in this Surrey. According to the eBay ad it was used on the set of Burn Notice, though no one has seen it appear in an episode (and only two episodes of the series left: sept 05 and sept 12 on the USA Network). We do know that the producer had been hunting a surrey for the show, but never learned what happened to their search. Well, I guess they found one.

(09/10/2013) Brian’s photos of a 1961 DJ-3A Surrey:

Brian writes, “It’s not the same Jeep. My top has never had an i.d. tag on it which i always thought was odd. When i bought the top, the Jeep was only in Florida for a year or two at the time. Before that it was in Virginia where it had spent most of it’s life, the same State that the top was built in. The story was something like: a lady bought the Surrey new in ’61 and then (i think) it was sold to a serviceman around the time of Vietnam. He put the Jeep in storage and it sat there for well over 30 years, hence why it was in such good shape. I can’t remember who had the top put on it. 
 
I found two more pics that show a bit of the pink paint, in the rear cargo area some is showing on the ribs and the front floor shot shows a line of pink around the body seam. I had underhood pics that showed alot of pink paint that the cheaper paint didn’t adhere too well to but i can’t find them.

Surrey Friction Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys • TAGS: .

Here’s a neat friction Surrey Jeep.

“Vintage Pink Surrey Willies Overland Jeep CJ Wrangler Scale Metal Friction Model!
Please view the images for condition.

Here we have an awesome tin friction car modeled after some old Jeep, not sure of the exact model. Friction motor was locking up at first but appears fine now and seems to work alright. Looks like there may have been a top over the passenger compartment at one time as there are six of the typical tin holes for extra parts to fit into on the rear of the jeep and the windshield frame. Overall great condition, might need some cleaning in the tight areas and does show some minimal wear. No maker mark or country of origin stamp on this one. Totally excellent jeep!!”
