1974 DJ-5 Northwest Georgia **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: Was listed at $2950. **Status Unknown**

Not perfect, but runs and drives.

“1974 Am General Jeep DJ-5 RHD. Rear wheel 2WD with automatic, 232 CID in line 6 cyl. Fully Functional and ready for mail route. Odometer functions and shows a little less than 73K, but being 40 years old I have no idea if that is correct. Tires very good, brakes and steering recently adjusted. Just installed new radiator and wiper blades 3 weeks ago and new Duralast Gold battery 4 weeks ago. I purchased this in January of this year to use on a rural mail route as a part-time carrier, and used it several times on the route, but was just hired as a full time driver for Fedex, so I no longer need it.

Previous owner replaced many parts and I have his service/parts records as well as my own. Cosmetically, it’s not by any means perfect, but it’s not a certified clunker, either. I have not had it tested for emissions so I have no idea whether it will pass or not. It does run and drive good and I have a clean title.”

Interior has one seat, and plenty of room to add seats or put for a cooler for ice cream. Has an air trumpet horn, and a high amp battery. Could use new brakes and new gaskets on door seal, and heater needs fixed. It is right hand drive and takes a little to get used to but definitely is fun.”

Jeep Themed Bar St. Cloud, FL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1775.

Here’s an odd item.

“This is a hand made Jeep themed bar, or service counter. The grille is a genuine Jeep part from a early 70’s mail truck. Its pretty much in same condition it was in when I found it. The bar framing is 1×4 and plywood.
The brick work is 2″ bead foam carved, sealed, and painted to look look like real brick. The bar top is reclaimed Red Oak and Cypress which has been sanded, sealed, and finished with 6 coats of water resistant poly clear coat. This is a unique 1 of a kind piece that you will not find at wal mart or Home Cheapo. This would be perfect in a Jeep lovers man cave, or as a service counter at an off road shop, or even a Jeep dealership.
Its 58″ long, 25″ deep, and 42.5″ tall weighs approx.75 lbs. This is a well made,sturdy piece that you will be proud to own. Can deliver in the Orlando area for small fee.

1982 DJ-5 Berea, KY $1000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

This runs and drives.

“1982 Classic Mail Jeep. Model DJ-5L, Delivery Jeep. Once an official postal delivery truck. Equipped with steering on the right-hand side. One seat and lots of room for hauling. Locks up nicely.

This is a practical and fun vehicle! Starts good and runs good. The 4 cylinder engine is very sound and strong. Clean carburetor. Not bad on gas. Also has a good transmission system (automatic). 2 Wheel Rear Wheel Drive. Has many new parts installed still under warranty including: Alternator, Starter, Battery, Coil Pack, and Headlights. It also has a new Ignition Switch, new Spark Plugs, and new flashers. All lights and turn signals work great. Good heater. Brakes were recently redone. Tires decent.

Some things on this vehicle still need repair. Needs body work. Needs a wiper motor, needs a speedometer/odometer cable, and needs a floating sensor for the gas tank. Needs a new gas tank (the current tank holds gas but has a hole in the top part). The interior could use a little care; for example the seat is worn out and there’s a rust hole (2in. diameter) on the driver’s side wheel well. The body shows some rust, especially in the rear underneath. All original parts for this vehicle are available at PostalJeep.net.

Simple vehicle, easy to work on, enjoyable to drive, plenty of clearance for crawling underneath. Original mail tray, original key, original drivers manual included. Call 859-756-4191”
