“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”

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.”
