1948 CJ-2A Harrisburg, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000.

(01/282021) This hardtop is unusual. The doors could be Koenig or possibly Worman. It looks like there’s a seem across the top and the side windows in the back are extra large.

“New engine, rebuilt transmission and transfer case. Rebuilt brake system. Rebuilt starter and alternator. Rebuilt lift pump on the snow plow. Arctic cab and heater. Runs great, everything operates as it should.”

“Hello everyone. I am selling my 1946 CJ-2a. Overall it does need some TLC but everything is there and complete. It does come with the hydraulic pump and hydraulic ram that powered the original plow. The reason it was originally parked was the rear main seal was leaking onto the clutch which made the clutch slip. I do have a clean clear title in hand for the buyer. Vehicle does not run at this moment. It would have to get winched up onto a trailer. As you can see from the pictures both the original body Vin tag and frame Vin tag are intact and matching. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am asking $3,750 o.b.o please do not lowball me or waste my time.”

1944 MB? Idaho Falls, ID $9000

• CATEGORIES: Features, Unusual, Wood bodies • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Price is now $9000.

(10/16/2020) What a crazy contraption. “El Burrito”‘s got style. It even has a mural on the back. I’m not quite sure how the rear extends, but it looks like someone would be safe from bugs.

“A Prospector’s Dream or a mini RV!
A unique vehicle for the right individual. A fold out six foot bed behind the seats, and a “kitchen” underneath. Email me for videos showing the set ups. A 1944 WWII surplus jeep purchased in 1954. It is a Willy’s 4 cylinder. I think it might be a CJ 6.
Needs new gas tank (has 2 tanks, if you want to replace both) Seals and belts are dry, but should absorb fluids back when added. It was started, but turned off to avoid running bad gas through the carburetor. All the mini-van modifications can be removed to restore to original jeep without too much conversion.
If interested E-mail phone number to pungoriver@live.com and I will call you for further information. If you like make a bid.
It has been garaged.”

1956? DJ-3A/CJ-2A Barboursville, VA $3800

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3800.

(02/02/2021) This DJ-3A is tagged a 1956, but the body is post 1959 given the passenger-side cold-air intake.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/239420284386299

“1956 dj3a titled as a 47cj2a. I have the body tag for the dj3a. It has been converted to 4×4 , but was very well done. 134l runs and drives, but no brakes. new master cylinder but I think it needs wheel cylinders. 5.38 gears, new fluids all around. Very nice body, barely any rust except the floors which the PO had diamond plated. 21000 miles that seems to be legit. Price is 4000 obo, may be interested in trades.”

January 1956 Koenig Hardtop & Misc Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This is Koenig bulletin #156, one that I finally purchased and scanned. This brochure marked a change in model numbers from Koenig’s 1955 brochure; the “-5″s were eliminated in favor of individual hardtop numbers (which I imagine was easier for consumers to understand). See a Koenig hardtop brochure history here.

Photos of early DJ-3A Hardtops with Side Glass

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Library Collections, Old Images • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: 2 more photos of DJ-3A Hardtops with side glass (note also the use of the modified hardtop with glass on the Jeep Creep jeep above). The first is a different 1956 DJ-3A with the same type of hardtop (side windows and small rear window) was posted to Facebook.

So, does this mean Willys Motors had planned on selling DJ-3As with side windows, but for some reason changed its strategy? Or, did they only intend these tops for commercial/governmental use?

1957-08-ann-arbor-mi-police-dj3a-fb

Caption: August 27, 1956. New Police Equipment: This new jeep, recently acquired by the City of Ann Arbor – Police Department, is being used to service parking meters throughout the city. The small vehicle has proven ideal for swinging into small spaces while meters are emptied. Patrolman John Biederman drives the jeep and is assisted in the meter collection by George Kaercher.

This second is undated, but shows a DJ-3A with a windowed hardtop for the Triangle Drive-in. It was posted to Facebook by Michael Canup.

dj3a-winder-ga-fb-triangle-drive-in

===============

The photos of this RHD drive DJ-3A were posted by Andy to Facebook. They show a RHD DJ-3A at work for the Los Angeles School Police Department (that’s the department’s insignia on the door).

This is a 1956 RHD DJ-3A. It has the small rear window top that was halted sometime around late 1956 or early 1957 (http://www.ewillys.com/2020/03/17/different-version-of-the-koenig-manufactured-hardtop/), but also has the Hall tail lights which I am surprised to see on a 1956 (https://cj3b.info/Dating/Taillights.html). Oddly, it also has the rear side windows on the hardtop, which wasn’t common for the DJ-3As, but the side windows were standard for this model of the CJ-5 hardtop. So, this must have been a special order?

There was another photo taken with what appears to be the same jeep (same number on the door), but having a different driver (at least a different cap) named Officer Verne Schlotzhauer, while Captain Maurice W. Calfee watches the officer. The car to the right is different, also. This appeared in the July 24, 1956, issue of the Valley News, Van Nuys, California:

1956-07-24-valley-news-vannuys-ca-traffic-jeep-lores

The top pic was also syndicated to newspapers. The image below appeared in the June 22, 1956, issue of the Des Moines Register:

Year? CJ-5 w/Trailer Redding, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

This late ’50s CJ-5 looks like a great candidate to run as is. It’s got early Free-Lock hubs, an Warn Overdrive, and a  PTO Winch. The body appears solid as well.  The trailer has potential as well (if the bottom is good).

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Price dropped to $12,500.

(01/25/2020) Looks like a nice top design for a cold climate.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1351680488524612

“Jeep CJ7 on Mattracks custom built to pull a fish house through almost anything. I am the second owner. Here is the description from the first owner who built it: I bought a late model jeep cj 7 frame with drive line from a friend. Put the 350 short block, differentials, and 4 speed trans in to this one. Plus a new power steering pump and built the cab. Bought a factory remanufactured engine from Dave Mosney Auto north of DL . The drive line is in real great shape. The trans and differentials had very few miles on them. I was very impressed with the performance of the whole rig. This jeep is a year around toy that is comfortable, warm, great clearance, powerful, super traction.” It has some patina but runs extremely well. Tracks are in great shape. Also comes with a set of tires. ”

1969 Mitsubishi J20C Katy, TX BaT Auction

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, International • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Blaine spotted this nice looking Mitsubishi J20C that’s being auctioned at Bring-a-Trailer.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-mitsubishi-j20c-jeep/

“This 1969 Mitsubishi J20C is a right-hand-drive Willys Jeep-based design licensed for production in Japan, and was imported to the US in August 2020 by the seller. The truck is finished in a two-tone gray paint scheme with a white roof over green vinyl, and power comes from a 2.2-liter inline-four paired with a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. Equipment includes a pintle hitch, a heater, a Mitsubishi Electric AM radio, fender-mounted mirrors, driving lights, and 15″ Mickey Thompson wheels with 32″ BFGoodrich tires. Since importation, the seller performed an oil change, re-routed the fuel line, adjusted the timing, and replaced the brake booster. This J20C is now offered with a spare wheel and tire, import documents, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name listing the vehicle as a 1969 Jeep J20. more –>

The more complete jeep has a gear shift that appears to the driver’s side of the transmission gear shift. That could be a crankshaft PTO engagement shifter. The hardtop looks similar to a Porter and Reed, but the front of the roof doesn’t slope down at the correct angle. I’m not sure what top it is.

1964 RHD DJ-3A Shingle Springs, CA $1500

This is a relatively rare right-hand-drive DJ-3A with an even rarer automatic transmission (see 4th pic… shifter to the right of steering wheel). Unclear how much value is here, but certainly some parts value at the very least. It has an f-head.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/773489700232581

“I had big plans for this cool little mail jeep but I have too many projects. It is a 1964 DJ3A dispatcher. They stopped making flat fender jeeps in 52 but they had so many parts left over they continue to make flat fender delivery vehicles into the mid 60s. It is very rare, I haven’t seen another one for sale. It does not run or drive, it is a project. I have a clean clear CA title in hand. The Jeep was last registered in 1985 so it is well out of the system.  any questions feel free to ask. Delivery available within reason.  i’m located in shingle Springs, Northern California”
