“My loss is your gain! It needs transmission work. The shop says a rebuild would be about $600 (if I R & R). I don’t feel like it right now. I’d rather move on with my next project. It’s $1000 firm (if I can’t get that, I’ll do the tranny and sell for $2000+. You pick up (tow or trailer).

I bought this three years ago with the intent to try it out this summer as a “retirement job” but family circumstances and increased hours at my other job have cancelled that plan. I owned it just long enough to make a lot of little fixes (lube, oil, added a radio & antenna, shocks, flashing yellow light, wiper blades, installed a window washer, fixed the horn, replaced exhaust manifold gasket, new ignition switch, plugs and wires, air filter, fuel filter, tranny filter & fluid, pcv, rebuilt carb., new fan belt, coolant flush and fill with new thermostat, – and probably a couple of other things I can’t remember right now….

It’s an ex-postal Jeep – 1978 American General DJ-5 with an inline 6 cyl. 232 engine – automatic trans. (tourqueflite 727).
Starts and runs really good. – (and with all that said, I’m not claiming “perfection” or anything. Keep in mind it’s a 1978 Jeep and drives like one – drum brakes, manual steering, no AC or heat – (yet perfect to head on down to the ball field on warm summer eves to make a few bucks!) OR – remove the stickers, put a coat of cammo-paint on it and you have a decent hunting vehicle!

I am not making a dime on this sale. I’ve got WAY more into it than I’m asking. Come check it out!
Thanks for looking!

    I haven’t seen this listed on Craigslist in a while, so I suspect this sold. I’ve updated the post. If I find out differently, I’ll drop you an email.
