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”

It runs and drives. The DJs run and are cheap. Will we ever see them become popular rebuilds? It wasn’t that long ago that flat fenders were cheap and ubiquitous.

1965 DJ-5 Loxley, AL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

This might be a pretty rare jeep, since DJ-5s started being built in 1965. I can’t tell if it is all stock or not. The seller notes this has a 150cc motor. Now, it might feel like that jeep feels like it is powered by something that small, but I’m sure the engine is slightly bigger.

“1965 DJ 3A Kaiser/Willies Jeep
2wd 4 cilinder 3 speed manual
4 lugs wheels
150cc motor
Good engine, no smoke
Carburetor needs cleaning

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”

1971 2WD DJ-6? San Diego State University, CA $4000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: , .

This may be a rare DJ-6, though it’s had some work done to it.

“I’ve had this jeep for a few years and am moving back to the beach to a place without a garage to work on it. It’s a little rough around the edges but i drive it all over. It has very little rus for a a California jeep, the corners where the feet are and the front fenders are all that have rusted through spots. It is a factory 2 wheel drive but I have almost everything to make it a 4×4, has a Buick 231 v6 which a prior owner put in to replace the original 225 v6. I put on a new holly carb, 4″ lift, 33″ bgf km2s, all new steering joints, shocks, all new accessories, edelbrock intake, headers, glaspacks, had the turbo 350 auto transmission rebuilt, cv driveshaft, 8 point roll cage, fuel tank, fuel pump. It starts right up and drives reliably every time. On the down side, it could use a new motor, it has a little low compression on one cylinder and burns oil, the wiring is all funky but it works, the brakes start to fade with lots of use and the steering is loose. Some of this is due to 4 wheel drum brakes and an old, crazy way jeep did their steering back then. I’ll throw in a set of 3/4 ton gm axles (corporate 14 bolt, 10 bolt without brakes), extra driveshafts, 5 complete 12 bolt, 8 lug, 37″ HUMVEE wheels with good tires and 2 extra rims. I also have an extra transfer case if you want to run a left differential axle. I also have a tow bar and lights I’ll throw in if you want to tow it. With a little time and knowledge this will be a truly and awesome jeep. As it is I can’t go anywhere without people stopping me. As you can see I’ve got way more in to this than I’m asking. $4k is an awesome price for this project so I’m firm on the price. The only trades I will consider are for a 450+ street legal super moto, a beat up but rideable full size harley, or possible a 71 model chevy truck or blazer. This is a very rare jeep and finding a project like this that you can actually drive home in is even rarer.”

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.”
