“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. Ran great until I took it for a brake inspection and they broke the brake shoes, didn’t have replacement parts, and they lost the ignition key”

“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!”

“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”
