1976 DJ-5 Queen Creek, AZ $2800


This was likely a Safari Kar based on the rims, steering wheel, and tail lights.

“1976 Jeep with straight 6 and 3 speed automatic transmission. This is a 2wd DJ5 Jeep with 31 inch BF Goodrich tires. Great fun if you have some land or live near the open desert. We use this Jeep to get around on our property and take into the wash. Runs and drives but the transmission does slip going into second gear but will drive around town fine. Make offer or will consider trades”

Needs a little work, but the body looks solid.

“Mail jeep. Right hand drive. Perfect for door to door deliveries like mail and newspapers. 1 seat. Delivery tray next to driver. Needs new brakes and ignition key. No other known problems.

1974-dj5-safarikar-mesa-az2 1974-dj5-safarikar-mesa-az3 1974-dj5-safarikar-mesa-az4

“Good running 1974 Jeep DJ-5 258-I6, 2wd, RWD, automatic, new Raceline Wheels and Goodyear tires, recent tune up & wires, AMSOIL oil, new radiator & cooling system flushed, new brakes, new mirrors, newer shocks, has roll cage w/bimini top, hi back bucket seats, front & rear tow hooks, spare tire carrier w/spare tire, new gauges (fuel gauge not hooked up), wipers not hooked up.

This was professionally converted from ex-postal jeep by Safari-Kar to left hand drive back in the day by a California company. Has some rust from being in CA back in the day but just in the usual fender spots. I have a rear seat bracket, and the original directional steel aftermarket wheels that goes with.

Many new parts:
– plugs, points, cap, rotor, wires
– rubber brake lines, wheel cylinders
– shocks
– Goodyear tires
– Raceline wheels
– oil, water, pressure, fuel gauges
– front turn & parking lights

Asking $2950 obo, too many toys and unfortunately this one has to go!

Its just a fun runaround in Jeep or get you down a dirt road or two. Its not a New Jeep so don’t waste my time wanting it to be!”

1975 DJ-5 Wall Township, NJ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5900.

Tony has this lefthand drive DJ-5 with a postal theme for sale.





“Selling some of my toys. While it is painted to look like a mail Jeep, it is not and was not used as postal vehicle. It is a LEFT hand drive model, not a right hand vehicle as all mail Jeeps were. I have had a few of these DJ5’s (DJ stands for Delivery Jeep, not a CJ which stands for Civilian Jeep) in the past and this is by far in the best condition. There was an extensive restoration done on this a few years ago by a previous owner and it looks great. It’s 43 year old driver. It has a 232 AMC 6 cal engine with a 3 speed automatic transmission. Manual steering and brakes but it steers and stops easily. All of these DJ5 models are 2 wheel drive, not 4wd. Some new and extra parts. I bought it this spring to play around for the summer and now it’s time for it to be enjoyed by someone else. Give me a call to learn more. I’m looking to sell it, not give it away”

“This is a 1978 DJ5. Used to be a postal service jeep that was converted in 1995 by a company named Safari-Kar. There was less than 1000 of these build. As the company was only in business for 3 years. The jeep has 5,276 miles on the complete rebuild. Inline 6, automatic transmission, 2 wheel drive. I just put 3200 dollars in it to replace or repair the following (battery, all the belts, brakes gone thru, the tires have less then 500 miles on them (and there is 5 of them), the gas tank and all the line have been cleaned (the tank was dropped cleaned and reinstalled. This is a very clean jeep at a good price.

If you want to know more about this unique jeep then google the company ( Safari-Kar ) .It will tell you more about what they have done.”
