Did they make a surry in '55?

Wasn't wanting to bust anyone's bubble but I'm glad you asked the question. The short answer is no and even admitted is not a surrey on the QTM Facebook page where this originally appeared though some of the other points weren't cleared up.

Not a 55 either. This is likely a 1956 data plate serial number dj3a due to the 8 King Seeley speedometer and likely a dj3a convertible due to the convertible top bottom rod holding brackets still on the bed and the solid back panel. Per our groups continuing research on DJ3A convertibles this is finally starting to become common knowledge among quite a few of us.

Also convinced that is the wrong windshield on this DJ, of course the top racks are wrong, same for the front bumper, and the snaps down the side of the bed don't belong on any DJ3A's as original equipment
