1960? DJ-5? Victoria, TX $10,000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: , .

This rear-wheel-drive build is interesting. It’s listed as a 1960 DJ-5 but those weren’t built until 1966 (it also lacks the faux battery box lid of a 1960 body). The fenders are later than 1960, too. The half top is one of the nicer ones I’ve seen, but I don’t recognize the model. The engine sounds like it would work well. The work n the jeep looks well done.
