Trip to MN Begins Sunday Morning

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .
2022-05-15-20-trip-to-mn-parkette-body

Map of our drive west this week. We plan to return that same route, unless a weather change directs us differently.

Early Sunday morning we head for Minnesota on our quest to retrieve the Parkette bodied racer from Dave. If all goes as planned, we’ll be in Mora on Tuesday late morning.

Unfortunately, it is pouring rain this morning here in Prosser, so trip-prep on the trailer will have to wait until the expected sunnier weather this afternoon.

Given we’ll be pulling our trailer there and back, we won’t be doing much sight-seeing. We do plan on meeting with a reader in Montana on our return trip. It turns out that one conversation between him and I radically changed his family’s life and I couldn’t be more happy for them. More on that later.

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

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

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

Cons
– 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.”
