1978 DJ-5 Leesburg, OH $1200


The engine is supposed to run. Thanks to Roger Martin for sharing.

“Dj5 mail jeep. Has a title! Bought it to v8 swap it. But don’t have the time to do so. Motor ran off a boat tank recently and the jeep was driven around in a feild. It’s right hand drive. Automatic. Pretty neat little piece. There’s some bucket seats that come with it. Other than that what you see is what you get”

This sure is an unusual build. I doubt there will ever be another ….

1981-dj5-jeeprod-nc46 1981-dj5-jeeprod-nc47 1981-dj5-jeeprod-nc48 1981-dj5-jeeprod-nc4

“All Clemson fans take notice!!! This is a custom built truck. This truck was used years ago with the football team as well as others. This truck has been in many parades and tailgate events. I discovered this truck a couple years ago and had to have it. This truck is built from 5 different vehicles. The list is as follows: Titled as 1981 Jeep J-10 truck 4×4 chassis, 1946 Ford car front, 1970’s Mail Jeep cab, 1955 International bed that has hydraulic lift, 1951 Ford truck grill. She has an in-line 4.0 Jeep 6 cylinder engine. Power brakes and steering. Runs quit like a Singer sewing machine. Travels straight as an arrow at 70 mph. One of a kind and wins shows everywhere she’s entered. Be prepared for many questions if you’re the lucky person to be the next owner. Build cost was estimated at over $20k and I believe it. Great fab work done! Message me only if interested in buying please! Title in hand”

1965 DJ-5 Woodland, CA $10,000


Looks in great shape, though too bad the driver’s side (which is on the right) has had the body cut. Note that this is a right hand drive jeep with an automatic transmission (probably Borg Warner).

“1965 Jeep DJ-5. Frame off Restoration. Starts up, runs and drives. Slight smell of antifreeze when running. Not a CJ-5. Right hand drive. 2wd. Automatic. Ryno Lined Floor. Have Pink Slip. Owned by the same family for the past 30 years”

1972 DJ-5 Custom Model A Concord, CA $750

Bill shared this customized DJ-5 with a Ford Model A feel. Even stranger, it has two steering wheels! It is weirdly awesome!

“If the posting is active then YES, IT IS STILL FOR SALE……. If you only ask that, then I will respond with “NO”. Ex-Postal jeep converted to a Ford Model A type vehicle. It is two wheel drive and has the inline 6 motor with an automatic transmission. The motor is currently stuck from sitting. IT IS NOT RUNNING. Yes it has two steering wheels. It’s a Left hand drive car. The right side steering wheel is not connected to anything. It is in rough shape but has good bones and would be a fun project. I picked it up as a cool project car and I don’t have time to work on it. I have oiled cylinders with marvel oil and have not tried to turn it over since. NO TITLE BILL OF SALE ONLY.”

1973 DJ-5 Safari-Kar West Hollywood, CA $15,000


Sri spotted this great example of a Safari-Kai (a specially converted DJ-5).

“Immaculate 1973 DJ5 Safari Kar conversion. Fully refurbished in 1991 and remained in storage for over 20 years. Always garaged, inline 6, under 3,000 miles on the odometer.

Can not drive around the block without being stoped by onlookers. Devastated to be selling, but moving back to the east coast and she’s a california girl.”

Merlin shared this DJ-5 with an unusual fiberglass replacement body on Facebook. One person thinks the body is a “Bum-Vee” body, but I couldn’t confirm that. Anyone recognize this body? It reminds me of the Parmley body.

1972 DJ-5B Airport Baggage Jeep Blacksburg, VA eBay


Chris is selling this rare former airport baggage conveyer DJ-5 that at one time was operated by Piedmont Airlines.

View all the information on eBay

“1972 Jeep DJ5B. Folks meet Piedmont. He’s a very rare DJ5B that was used by Piedmont Airlines as a luggage loader. This model is rear 2WD with a 232 six cylinder that is currently not running. Motor does turn over at the crank so it is not seized. This is a rare piece of history that I recently saved from the scrap yard. Notice the slant on the passenger side as this was manufactured at the plant in Toledo to house the loader mechanism. Very original rig that I feel needs to be restored back to his original glory. I’ve personally been a many  Willys, Kaiser, AMC and likes for many years and this model is new to me.


This is a matching numbers Jeep as well with a clean NC title. The mileage on the rig is unknown but the title shows 2054 and the speedometer is showing 20..Mechanically he will require some attention. You can see the obvious rust but the frame is in good condition with no serious spots. Tub will need to be repaired. No radiator in place. Transmission is in pieces. One of the main shafts is cracked and the entire transmission needs to be reassembled. 3 speed T85 unit. Temporarily the main transmission mount is secured by two bolts only for transport. Does include many transmission parts and pieces but I am unsure if everything is there. Tires are only rollers and what came with him but he does roll nicely. Front passenger brake components are missing but would need all new brakes regardless. Folks he’s not ready for the road yet but man would he not be a show stopper?”

1971 DJ-5 San Diego, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD**. Was $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.”
