1975 DJ-5 Pleasant Grove, UT $1000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

Might be worth a look. Needs work.

https://www.ksl.com/auto/listing/5009693?ad_cid=6

1975-dj5-pleasantgrove-ut

“Its a 1975 Jeep DJ series. It’s 2 wheel drive. It has a straight 6 (232ci 3.8L) and a automatic (a727) transmission. It’s right hand drive. it needs work. It’s a project. The battery is new. The front brakes are new. I replaced the transmission pan gasket on the transmission but it still leaks.

To get it at least in good driving condition, the transmission needs to be addressed to stop the leak. The brake system needs a flush. Tires should be replaced. The brake pedal itself needs new bushings. It needs some lights replaced. That’s the stuff that would get it on the road. After that I would check to make sure the alternator is good. Replace the fluids and do a good tune up. It’s does come with a new kick-down cable and bracket, as well as a new throttle cable. It also comes with a tow bar.”

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $1500.

This might be a Safari-Kar build, though I can’t tell for sure.

“Great running custom Jeep. This is an ex postal Jeep (right hand drive) rebuilt and converted to look like a CJ. Inline 6 cylinder, auto trans (drips a little fluid), 2 wd. Solid frame and body(minimal rust), oversized tires (weather cracks), no top, no doors, what you see is what you get. It’s dependable and it’s also 43 years old. It was completely rebuilt 10+ years ago. No trades, cash only. Will not reply to “still for sale” send a number to call or text. Too many scammers out there.”
