1970 DJ-5 The Colony, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4650.

Rare DJ-5 non-mail jeep. Needs a little body work on the driver’s fender, but otherwise this looks like a rare find in good shape. This is a former US Army vehicle (no pic of a Gov plate).

“1970 Jeep Universal DJ5
2 wheel drive
24,xxx original miles
134 F Head Willys 4 cylinder
3 Speed Manual
Runs well
New tires and front brakes
Solid body and floor
Former US Army TMP vehicle
Paint is average for this year vehicle.
Everything works except the heater which is disconnected and one wiper arm is broken.

I am moving and this needs a new home. I brought this vehicle to TX from Georgia. I did not have sufficient evidence of ownership so it has a blue Texas bonded title in my name.”

    That is not a DJ5 that is a CJ5. DJ5s had a completely different engine and frame than that in 1970.

    If this is an original 2WD Jeep: why is there a 4WD instruction plate on the dash to the left of the steering wheel? You have to go to the Craigslist ad and enlarge the photos to see it.

    Gayland: I didn’t notice the sliding windows. I’ll see if I can identify that model.

    Clayton: There were a line of DJ-5s made by Kaiser (which differed from the DJ-5A and later Dispatcher commonly, but not exclusively, used by the post office). You can see specs for the DJ-5 here: http://www.ewillys.com/2017/05/31/dj-5dj-6-documents/ … I thought the DJ-5s were only made through 1968, but this clearly has a 1970 manufacture tag on the dash. The 8505 serial number of DJ-5s made by Kaiser is consistent with the serial number on the yellow sticker on this DJ-5s dash. The Gov dash plate should also have the model number, which would add evidence that this was originally a DJ-5.

    Buddy: I can’t read the dash plate well, but doing a search for other CJ-5s with a similar plate didn’t not yield any other examples, so I’d say there is something special about this plate. I would like to see a better photo of it. But, as I mention above. the yellow sticker’s serial number is consistent with it being a DJ-5.
