Cotton Candy & Popcorn Jeep at Fifth ave and 50th, Brooklyn

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

If I’d only known . . . Apparently Ceclia Gomez operates a popcorn and cotton candy stand out of a pink DJ-5 near Sunset Park in Brooklyn (near 5th Avenue and 50th Street). My wife says that is a must stop on our next trip to New York!

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”

1974 DJ-5C Pinson, AL **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: Was listed for $750. **Status Unknown**

It looks pretty good, but needs a little work.

“1974 AMC Jeep DJ-5C Mail Jeep
Used for mail delivery for 2 years but got a newer one and it’s been sitting for about 2 years.
Features:
New Radiator
New Water Pump
New Alternator
New head Gasket Set about 6 months before parking it
Transmission rebuilt by Aamco about 1 year before parking it

Good tires
All lights work including flasher mail sign on top
Heater works great!
Right hand drive
back door for easy mail & package packing
has mail platform on left side for stacking mail trays
has plenty of room even during Christmas season!

Body is in fair condition.
It comes with a floor pan for drivers side, I just never had time to weld it in.
It also comes with a new windshield and gasket that I never got around to installing.
It also comes with a new set of brake shoes… front or back.

Previous owner lost door keys so pad locks were installed to secure the mail.
It needs a drivers side window, wheel cylinders and master cylinder. BRAKES need to be repaired before driving home or you can tow it home.
Great for rural mail routes. Might be a nice alternative to a golf cart for camp/hunting grounds or farm.”

1969 DJ-6 Cabot, AR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

These are rare.  Needs work though. Includes a Cherokee.

“Up for sale is a rare 1969 Jeep DJ6 (2 wheel drive). I just don’t have the time to restore it like I planned. Have some new wiring, a replacement steering column, and new tail lights. It has an early 80’s Chevy V6 and manual 3 speed trans. The motor ran good when I bought it, but have removed the wiring. I have a bikni top and rear panel with window that mounts to the roll bar, and some old soft doors. The body and floors have some rust but is mostly solid, I will also include a 1997 Cherokee that I was going to use to upgrade the axles and braking system on the old Jeep. It has seats that are in perfect condition that would have been used also. Please don’t ask to buy the Cherokee. It is not titled and will only be included as parts. If I connot sell the Dj I will need the Cherokee for parts. I will consider a trade for a tractor with a bushhog or box blade. This will make a very nice Jeep to run around in if you have the time to restore it, really wish I did”
