Pascal’s Newest Jeep . . . A rare DJ-6?

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

Pascal just purchased this jeep.  Though it is four wheel drive, the serial number suggests it is a DJ-6.  I looked up the serial number and I found one site that suggests the serial number is a DJ-6.  Anyone know the DJ-6 serial numbers?

Pascal writes, ” I’m writing to you because I bought another jeep last weekend. (Yep my wife is still loving me…for how long? For a jeep life I hope!).  I’m pretty sure that’s a DJ-6 1965 even if seller told me that was a CJ-6 1962. Serial number is 8605 10062. It’s also stamped on the frame.

It has two fuel tanks. It looks original. It also has 4×4 and I think a Meyer hard top. The mileage reads 29xxx miles. The motor’s serial number is 4J418884.”

6×6 Jeeps in the Jolly Jeepers Jeep Club

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Other 4x4s, Unusual • TAGS: , .

I was looking up some PTO parts when I landed on the Jolly Jeepers website.  According to their website, the Jolly Jeepers is Oregon State’s oldest jeep club, having been founded in 1962. Two of the jeeps owned by members are custom 6x6s.  You can see more 6x6s here.

Coincidently, just before publishing this post, Blaine happened to send me pictures he took of one of these 6x6s at the Orphan Car Show hosted by the Studebaker Drivers Club in Oregon City, Oregon, this past Sunday.  I’ve seen “Gator” listed both as a DJ-6 and a CJ-6, so I’m not entirely sure what the base platform was.

Here’s an early shot of the Gator:

And here are Blaine’s photos

This one is built from a CJ-8 or Scrambler:

1975 DJ-5D Arvada, Co **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

“With some hesitation I am forced to sell this 1975 Mail Jeep (DJ-5D). It is a great little Jeep that needs a new home because I dont have the space to store it and my friend cannot keep it in his garage anymore 🙂 as his 65′ Mustang is due to come back from a 2 year restoration project soon…

Here is a run down of some details (mostly complete) about this Postal Jeep:

– Inline 6 cylinder (232 cu in engine) that runs great and has a bunch of newer parts. The odometer says just over 56,000 miles….I don’t know for sure but I think it is total original miles. There is a chance the odometer has rolled over as it only has 5 digits (XX,XXX) but its doubtful. I’ve probably put only 500 or so miles on it since I bought it a few years ago and it has been used for close proximity driving (never really taken on the highway). Its an automatic and the throttle is very responsive and has a good amount of pickup and go, but the brakes currently need a little work….more on that below.

– It has a 727 Torque Flight Transmission (automatic) and this tranny is very sought after by many off roading and hot rod enthusiast alike because of the strength and adaptability to multiple engines and transfer cases. If you research Monster Trucks (like Grave Digger) most of them are running a 727 TF because they can be built to withstand well over 1000 hp.

– This Jeep has good glass all the way around. No chips or cracks in the windshield or any glass for that matter – it all in great shape. Both slider doors open (with a little muscle) and the rear swing door works great and closes securely. The rear swing door has the signature “Jeep” molded into the middle of it which is rare for a Postal Jeep from what I was told.

– There is some minor surface rust that has been semi-sanded and all the problem areas have been sprayed with a white primer antirust base coat.

– The worst rust is found on the floor boards but this sale includes a slew of new parts including 2 new pre-molded metal floor boards (1 left and 1 right). The back cargo area does not have any rust.

– There is a softball size hole in the front driver (typically passenger side) corner panel that someone cut out to get to the master cylinder which needs to be replaced and just like the new floor boards, a new master cylinder is another new part that is included in the sale but has not yet been swapped out.

– This Jeep has 4 matching tires that are like new and have a ton of tread left. A full size spare is also included.

– The Rear axle is a narrow track Dana 44. This axle does not leak and the fluid was recently checked. Very stout axle. These Mail Jeeps were rear wheel drive only so it’s not a 4×4 and the front axle (or lack thereof) is just an axle housing – no shafts, no pumpkin and no transfer case behind the trans.

– Paint is in ok shape and depending on what you want to do with the vehicle, it could go for a new paint job at some point, but it isn’t a necessity.

– Overall this Jeep is a pretty neat little unique vehicle that runs good and catches a lot of attention. I just dont have time (and now the space) to keep working on it and restoring it. It needs some things done, mainly the brakes, but most (or all) of the parts needed are included in the sale.

Also, just FYI if you research the 1975 Postal Jeep (DJ-5D) this is a specific year that has a ton of parts that are beefier than other years and offer a great base for a restoration Mail Jeep project, or a unique 4×4 Right Hand Drive Jeep project as the DJ model is a sister to the CJ 5 models. It would pain my heart a little, but this Jeep could also be a $$$ maker if you have the time to strip it down and part it out.

– I have a clean title for the vehicle and 2 keys that operate both the ignition and all the door locks.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to see the Jeep in person. At this point, the brakes are not good enough to drive home as the e-brake is currently the only working brake 🙂 – so it would have to be trailered away. I have a flat bed trailer and would be willing to move it for the right deal.

I am not interested in trading for another vehicle so dont ask me about that, but I will consider trading or partial trades for tools, guns, specific wheel and or tire sets, old baseball cards (50’s & 60’s era). specific XJ (Cherokee) or J10/J20 Jeep truck parts, large vertical air compressor, large tool chest, other mechanic/garage items, or hunting items.”

DJ-3A & DJ-5 Etters, Pa Auction Sat Nov 19th

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, DJ-5 & DJ-6

Glenn wanted to share this auction with folks. http://kerrypae.com/auctions.html?select=upcoming&id=3

“The Auction is in Etters, PA just off I-83 south of Harrisburg and north of York. There’s more than 50 oldies to pick from including two DJ’s. In the picture it shows a DJ3A on the left and a LHD DJ5 on the right. Looks like the DJ3A shown in pix 35 and 36 has many usable part.  Emailing the auction company got nothing back, so I’m assuming they expect it all to go for junk. Hopefully someone local can snatch them. No Titles, just be prepared to move ’em quickly says the instructions.”

1969 DJ-6 (2WD) Sedalia, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay. It’s a rare DJ-6.

The DJ-6 model was built from 1965 to 1973 according to some sources and 1965 to 1968 according to others.  The most expensive DJ-6 was $1,818 according to All-Par.

“Up for auction is this nice old Willys DJ6 Jeep.  I bought this from a collector in KC MO and he had it for over 25 years stored in his building. I understand that this is a hard Willys model to find. It was bought new by Merrit Dairy and used to sell Ice Cream out of.  The Delight Company bought it and made it into the Ice Cream Jeep by adding the top which unbolts and makes it into a normal DJ6, their brass tag is rivited to the firewall as seen in pictures .  The body is nearly rust free as it was never used in winter months.  The floor panels and fender wells are in very good condition.  There are some dings in the fenders and dents here and there but are very solid.  The engine is the 4 banger and has a 3 speed manual tranny.  I believe these are orignial miles as it runs and operates very smooth.  No blow-by on engine.  This will make a great restoration project as the basics are very complete and solid.”
