    We’d greatly appreciate contacting the current owner. Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival needs a stock Postal Jeep for our history exhibit “Jeeps of the 70’s”. Thank you, Friends of Bantam Jeep.

    Hi Bill,

    I haven’t seen this for sale in a while. It likely sold. I’ve updated the post. Unfortunately, I don’t have any contact info for the seller. I only had the now-dead craigslist link.

    The Harrisburg, PA, post office has a postal jeep on display. Maybe they will loan it??

    You might check with the manager of this website. Maybe he knows of some postal jeeps near Butler:

    Thanks Dave,
    This is our best lead so far.
    Finding a nicely restored DJ-5 in USPS trim in our area (the rust belt) is proving to be nearly impossible.
    Thanks again,
