This remarkably original vehicle was purchased new in late 1959 at Turbiville
Rambler Inc., in San Antonio, TX. It has
managed to survive the years with very few modifications.
Here the optional rear bumper and swing away license
can be seen.
This DJ-3A shared some new features with the CJ-3B. The Fresh Air
Heater, gauges combined
with speedometer, and parking brake handle are changes that came during
the CJ-3B era. The original seat material was
gray and black check pattern that has been covered over.
Some of the original Transport Yellow paint is peeking through
in these photos.
According to the original "Automobile
Order" this is engine serial number 3J162503.
Paperwork for this 1960 model year
DJ-3A Dispatcher, purchased December 4, 1959 for $1803.32. The options
included are a fresh air heater, rear bumper with swing away license
plate mount, and side passenger seat.
Thanks to Steve Gilman for sharing the
photos of his DJ-3A.
