So the DJ3a is a two wheel drive?

First photo looks like something from Cuba to transport tourists. I like it.

Yep most all of the DJ's (refered to as "dispatcher jeep") were 2wd, mostly for the postal routes. I have heard of a few 4wd units, but not positive for sure how true it was. Would not doubt it as jeep did a lot of one-offs and custom stuff.. The first picture was the "surry" Generally used for transporting guests at the big fancy resorts and hotels back then. Even available in what would now be refered to as hot pink.

Have seen the Tonka version in pink, turq. and blue. Go for a pretty penny if they are in decent condition.

The CJ10's pop up at Gov't auctions. Decent running gear in 'em, use a 208 case locked down in low range. Some of the guys on the fullsize jeep board are working on project rigs using them as a base. Watch the auction site for Fairchild AFB, might pick one up cheap if that is your thing.

my dad an I are curently in the precess of rebuilding a 56 dj3a. this one was 4-wheel drive (converted by some "good ol boys") when we got it. the only difference between it and a regular 3a was it has no tailgate.
