1971 DJ-5 San Diego, CA $6000


Hillery is selling her DJ-5 which she affectionately named “AI Green”. Unfortunately, Mr Green and Hillery didn’t want to follow her move to the desert, so he needs a new home. The license plate “FROM” seems appropriate for a mail delivery jeep. I also really liked the sticker, “Be Kind, We’re All Idiots”.

“This classic, head turning Postal Jeep is ready for his next home. For 4+ years this guy has been my small business stationery shop on wheels. He has been loved by many, nobody more than me. I’ve moved to the desert and he wants to stay somewhere cooler, so we’ve mutually agreed to split ways. He’s in excellent condition for a 50 year old machine.

Among the many things I’ve had replaced over the past four years:
– Rebuilt with a CJ-5 straight 6 engine
– Brakes
– Carburetor and Fuel Pump
– Starter
– Torque Converter
– Brakes

– Fuel guage has never worked (but I’m told is an easy fix)
– No power steering, be prepared to work when driving this guy!

Clean title with records showing work done.”

(08/04/2021) This is a unique jeep that you may have see pics of around the internet/facebook. Both back axles are powered. A few readers have seen this in person and know the builder. One especially unique thing about it is that the jeep was originally a rare DJ-6.

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features • TAGS: .

Mike shared this DJ-5-transformed-into-a-smoker (in the back) and grille (under the hood).

“Pull up with this at your next party. Built from the shell of an old postal jeep. 18 ga steel welded in the cargo area(back) and sealed and all shelves (2) are on rollers so they pull out. Side back windows have shelf to keep things warm. Under the hood you have a 36″ flat top griddle for cooking. I built a fire box that only uses wood or charcoal. I used only hickory wood. Smoker is mounted on a trailer for easy towing. All lights on jeep except headlights work as they should .”

1960? DJ-5? Victoria, TX $10,000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: , .

This rear-wheel-drive build is interesting. It’s listed as a 1960 DJ-5 but those weren’t built until 1966 (it also lacks the faux battery box lid of a 1960 body). The fenders are later than 1960, too. The half top is one of the nicer ones I’ve seen, but I don’t recognize the model. The engine sounds like it would work well. The work n the jeep looks well done.

1973 DJ-5 Raleigh, NC $5500


Looks solid.

“This is my vintage DJ5 mail jeep, I am selling it with a brand new battery, brand new suspension all the way around, new tires and everything on it like headlights wheels with the sweet original chrome hub caps, and unkillable inline 5 it is automatic and mileage is unknown but it starts right up and drives great for its age. It does not have power steering but it’s so small it’s not very hard to turn you just have to get used to being on the right side. This one is in fantastic condition for what it is and it is easy to see project ideas from it or keep it original which is just as nice. All lights work and I bought it from a mailman who bought it from the us mail system.”

1976 DJ-5 Gainesville, FL $4000


Michael has this DJ-5 for sale. He used it on a USPS route, but no longer needs it anymore.

“Hard to find nowadays a right hand drive Postal Jeep. Running like a top. It has a very nice light bar on the back. I completely redid the brakes, (calipers and lines), new water pump including the housing, new battery, new alternator, and new 3 point seatbelts. I had been using this to deliver mail for over two years and now I don’t need it. Very reliable and collectable. It has an inline 6 cylinder motor with 3 speed automatic transmission. Would make a good farm-buggy, grocery-getter or could still deliver the mail.”

Year? DJ-5 Stretched Houston, TX $5900

A custom stretched DJ-5.

dj5-stretched-houston-tx1 dj5-stretched-houston-tx2 dj5-stretched-houston-tx3 dj5-stretched-houston-tx4

“Wow this is cool – what kind of Jeep is this exactly? From Europe? South America? Is this Korean war era? Falkland Islands? Northern Ireland? These are the kinds of questions I get which is a lot of fun. If you don’t like attention, this is not the Jeep for you.

It started out as a retired postal Jeep (DJ5). I’ve since extensively modified it to be of roughly the same dimensions as the rare Willys CJ6. Frame stretched 18” with lots of hand fabricated body modifications, roll bars, etc. Custom safari top (the only top), new seats & seatbelts, Bluetooth stereo. I tossed the tired 4-banger and swapped in a stout Ford 302 & C4 automatic. Engine has 351 heads, 4bbl, new electronic distributor, water pump, radiator, exhaust manifolds, battery, etc. etc. Fairly aggressive cam, sounds great. Way more motor than this light truck needs, but it is fun.

1975 DJ-5 Mendon, UT **Sold**


UPDATE: ** sold** was $1800.

It runs and drives.


“I bought this Jeep three years ago, did some repairs, got tires, and used it as a backup vehicle for a mail route. It hasn’t been used a whole lot, in fact I put about 200 miles on it. 6 cylinder engine has a lot of pep, engine runs smooth. Being 46 years old means that not everything works the way it should, but it can certainly function as a delivery vehicle still.
I am a retiring Postmaster. As I said I just had this as a backup vehicle just in case my carrier’s vehicle broke down we could still get the mail delivered. It served that purpose well.
Actual mileage is unknown”

1975 DJ-5 Safari-Kar Bakersfield, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $11,111.

I suspect the price is just a placeholder. It’s been almost two years since the last documented Safari-Kai popped up for sale. Here’s a brochure about the short-lived Safari-Kai business.

“1975 Jeep DJ5. Summertime is the perfect time for open air cruising and this little Jeep gets you where you want to go in style. Like new in appearance, this 2WD AMC Jeep DJ5 was completely reconditioned 25 years ago by Safari Kar International – one of only about 500 units built. It is economical and easy to drive with a reliable AMC in-line six cylinder engine, power steering and brakes, and a floor shifted 3 speed automatic transmission.

There are less than 1500 miles on the odometer since its rebirth as it was stored for over 20 years and has just emerged to give joy to a new generation. This is a great utility vehicle with new seats, a sturdy roll bar, a bimini top to provide some shade, a flawless Shamrock Green paint job, and new floor coverings. The tires show virtually no tread wear and the 15 inch chrome Centerline rims glitter like diamonds.

This is not the kind of luxury SUV with power accessories, air conditioning, and a stereo system. It is the kind of fun machine that is perfect for beach cruising, backroad touring or just use it in the neighborhood as an eye catching grocery getter. This is the kind of vehicle that will lure lots of new friends who will want to know all about it. There is no rust and only a little bit of dust. It has always been garaged, and it starts easily and runs great. It does not have a full top or doors, but who needs ‘em? Just hop in this breezy ride and seize the day. Carpe diem!”
