Are you worried about your current vehicle’s ability to get you from point A to point B? Then you should really consider plunking down the lowly eight Benjamins for this former Postal Jeep. That’s because “neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”, . . . and this is their car!
They say the postman always rings twice, but that’s just because he was so excited to get back behind the wheel of his sassy little Jeep. For years we’ve all looked at the mailman, so smug behind the wheel, wearing his pith helmet and striped shorts, and wondered what it would be like to drive so capable a vehicle. And now here’s a cheap chance. Not only that but, based on the description, the seller appears down-home and honest:
74000 miles, in good shape but has only been driven occasionally in last year. Bought to use on my mail route but realized that I couldn’t pick kids up from school and stuff if I needed to since only the 1 seat. Gas gauge doesn’t work and brakes seem to be a little grabby but i think that is from not being driven much. The last pix show the inside right door that needs some fixing. Otherwise the body is in good shape. Would make a great part time mail jeep or hunting vehicle. Feel free to ask any questions.
It has an inline 4 cylinder and 3 speed automatic transmission that I think is a GM Iron Duke engine 151 cu in (2.5 L) four cylinder, Chrysler 904 transmission. I also have the Haynes manual, the Jeep service manual and parts manual.
Now, it’s pretty rudimentary, and plenty rough, and it’s a monoposto, so your friends will have to jog along outside. But who cares, its got right hand drive and sliding doors! Right-hand drive! That means you’ll be able to fly through traffic cameras with impunity albeit without speed. These things were built for comfort, not speed- and by comfort, I mean the lack thereof. Still, how cool would be to cruise around in one of these? And it’s only $800. Sliding doors!
