“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.

1971 DJ-5 Minneapolis, MN **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay.

Gayland shared this slightly modified DJ-5.


“You are looking at a 1971 Jeep DJ5. Just about the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!
We’ve had our fun with it and now it’s someone else’s turn.
This Jeep is a low production number: #311, and it is equipped with an even more rare automatic. It’s just been tuned with a new carburetor kit and fresh fuel. It runs down the road wonderfully!

It has 4 brand new wide white tires, fresh seat covers and it’s ready for towing a small boat, going to the beach, the Dairy Queen or anything you find fun in a little open Jeep like this!

This is the famous Jeep platform, 2-wheel drive, automatic, fixed hardtop roof and windshield Jeep with no side doors.

The engine is a 232 or 258 (not sure which) and runs fantastic. The transmission is tight and strong. This Jeep has very nice body work and paint (not showroom). It has some custom blue ghost flames on the hood and rear.

What you see in the photo is what you get. The Jeep has a relatively low reserve and unlimited potential for fun!”

1975 DJ-5 Orem, UT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $750.

It needs a little work, but could still be a good price.

“This is actually an ex-postal Jeep 1975 DJ-5D. They’re pretty rare. It was used for 20 years for the USPS delivering mail. The engine and transmission were just rebuilt by a reputable mechanic and they have less than 10,000 miles on them. It runs and idles really good. Top speed is 65mph. 2WD, Automatic 3 speed, steering wheel is on passenger side. It’s big enough inside to fit a dirt bike or mtn bike. Tires were just checked and filled by a tire shop.
It needs just a couple things: 1) new battery 2) front brakes 3) transmission pan gasket 4) steering stabilizer
I just found out that I’m having a baby sooo I guess I need to start selling all of my hobbies 🙂 I’m firm on the price. I’ve got the title in hand. Text is the best way to contact me.”

Rare DJ-5 non-mail jeep. Needs a little body work on the driver’s fender, but otherwise this looks like a rare find in good shape. This is a former US Army vehicle (no pic of a Gov plate).

134 F Head Willys 4 cylinder
3 Speed Manual

65 DJ-5 South Bend, IN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4900.

(12/15/2017) 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.”

1979 DJ-5 Tucson, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

Runs and drives, though the battery died over the holidays.


“This is truly a magical Jeep DJ-5, which was originally in service in Las Vegas, NV. After being decommissioned the Jeep was relocated by the previous owner to Tucson where it has sat unused for sometime. I have done as much digging as possible about this DJ-5, but what I’ve discovered is mostly from going over the Jeep.

Here is what I know:
– The original Audi designed engine has been replaced with a indestructible 1978 AMC crafted in-line 6 cylinder, which was specific to the DJ-5.
– The transmission has been replaced and has less than 50 miles on it.
– The underside of this DJ-5 is pristine. NO RUST. The body does have rust, but is all cosmetic and could easily be cleaned up.
– Interior is in good shape. The original mail tray has been removed and left side passenger seat added.
– The electrical/wiring needs attention for lighting. Both headlamps need grounding wires replaced and one front right-side turn signal needs to be replaced. Rear brake lights are working, but turn signals will need fresh wiring.
