65 DJ-5 South Bend, IN eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: .

This is a very hard-to-find DJ-5 model (this differs from the postal model). Even harder to find is the DJ-6. This looks in real good shape. It has the correct starting VIN of 8505 1227 and it has the four lug hubs. This also has a ventilating windshield, also an option on the original DJ-3A starting in 1956.

“1965 Jeep DJ5. Very similar to CJ5. Rebuilt Engine with only 430 miles. 3 speed manual transmission. Rare 2WD. Almost totally restored. Rebuilt Carb. Rare split windshield with new weather stripping. New shoulder retractable seatbelts. Paint is newer, but has its problems. NO Rust, Frame is very solid ( sealed with por15). Wipers are vacuum operated, but missing hoses. All lights work. New LED brake lights. New rear main seal. No Leaks! except for a once in a while drip from master cylinder. Think that’s just coming from cap. New brake lines, hoses, shoes, W cylinders and master cylinder. Tires are military. Old, but no cracks and hold air. They look new. Comes with- newer tow bar, original soft top and doors (rough), original engine head and manual.”

This 78 Jeep delivers rain, sleet, or shine lol. This thing is pretty AWESOME!! It has a bullet proof Inline 6 and TorqueFlite Automatic, the chassis is not rusted and the body isnt either. It runs great and all original. It has a few additions such as a little fan type A/C unit and a Pioneer CD player. Really clean considering the age it is in great shape. The question was asked..How many miles? the answer given…All of them, hehe. No seriously it has 488k miles and will still deliver at its peak performance. Maintained very well and I do have an additional one that quit and doesnt run and I will do a package deal for both. Any more concerns please text me.”

1978 DJ-5F Rice Lake, WI $850

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: .

I didn’t realize how many DJ models came with the inline 6. Apparently, that’s the reason for the bumped out hood in front.

“1978 Jeep DJ5-F. This is a retired United States Postal service Jeep so it is right hand drive. Has inline 6 cylinder, Automatic Transmission, aftermarket cab heater, runs and drives (but will need tune-up and carburetor clean/rebuild) Will have to taken away on trailer due to running rough, expired tabs, no insurance and right turnsignal isn’t working. I bought this as a project vehicle but have not time to fix it up. I have put over $1000 in parts into the vehicle already. Has new tires, new wheels, new front shocks, newer battery and a new muffler just to mention the big purchases. Odometer only goes up to 99,999, therefor I have no idea how many miles it truly has. Any questions please contact me by call or text at 715-205-8068”

Pascal’s Newest Jeep . . . A rare DJ-6?

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features • TAGS: .

Pascal just purchased this jeep.  Though it is four wheel drive, the serial number suggests it is a DJ-6.  I looked up the serial number and I found one site that suggests the serial number is a DJ-6.  Anyone know the DJ-6 serial numbers?

Pascal writes, ” I’m writing to you because I bought another jeep last weekend. (Yep my wife is still loving me…for how long? For a jeep life I hope!).  I’m pretty sure that’s a DJ-6 1965 even if seller told me that was a CJ-6 1962. Serial number is 8605 10062. It’s also stamped on the frame.

It has two fuel tanks. It looks original. It also has 4×4 and I think a Meyer hard top. The mileage reads 29xxx miles. The motor’s serial number is 4J418884.”
