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!”

1951 M-38 Pocatello, ID $16,500


This is powered by a Buick V-6.

“This is a 1951 Willys M-38 Military Jeep that I’ve owned for 50 years. In 1984, I took the whole Jeep apart, painted it and put it back together with a 1981 231ci Buick V-6 certified to have come out of a Buick Regal, wrecked with just 5,000 miles. Engine probably has about 15,000 miles on it now. With a high-rise Edelbrock intake, Holley 390cfm quad and headers, this little buggy has buckets of torque and plenty of power. Brakes are all brand new top to bottom. Ten years ago I had a new top made, complete with canvas side curtains and doors. The seats were reupholstered with black naugahide at that time. The transmission is the stock original Spicer T-90 three speed plus a 25% Full Range overdrive. Transmission was rebuilt 10 years ago. With low range, regular range and overdrive, this Jeep has nine forward speeds and three in reverse. Locking hubs in front.. Always garaged, this Jeep has been my baby all these 50 years, but it’s time to let ‘er go . Feel free to call or e-mail with any questions.”

FC-150 Bed West Point, NE $399

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Parts

No pics provided.

“I bought this FC bed out in western Nebraska with the intent of using it behind a cj10 cab.
That project changed hands and directions several times, and now I have an FC bed with no home for it.

I do consider chopping it to make it a different size for some other Jeep based pickup project.

But if someone needs it for an actual FC, that would be best.

It’s not pristine, so modifying it wouldn’t be a huge sin. But it’s solid enough that a real enthusiast might want or need it. Not many folks can say they’ve ever owned any forward control Jeep parts at all, so maybe you want it for bragging rights or to build a trailer for your flatfender.

I paid 500 several years ago, so I guess we can start there. Just my luck it’ll be worth 3000 and I still let it go for 500…”
