1976 Jeep DJ5 NONE

I will post better pictures. I am having trouble figuring how to do it.
This is a one of a kind right hand drive electric jeep. I bought this in 2011 and just "put it back" with my other collection of postal jeeps. It is now coming up for sale as I need room. It is showroom perfect, just drop in some new batteries.
If you deliver plastic bags this is the most economical and practical vehicle you will find. If you love Jeeps no one will have anything like this. It's so cute

Back in the ’70s (when the Big 3 were really the Big 4), American Motors flirted a bit with electric vehicles. Perhaps their greatest successes came from the Jeep side of the ailing brand. Known internally as the DJ-5E and to the outside world as the Electruck, the E-Jeep used a 20-horsepower compound wind DC Motor made by Gould. That same company provided the batteries, an odd set of two 27 volt lead-acids which were later replaced by the Postal Service with Eagle-Picher batteries. Capable of hitting 40 miles per hour for up to 29 miles, the USPS got plenty of use out of the three-doored wrong-side drive EVs.

Over three-hundred-fifty electric Jeeps were sold to the U.S. Postal Service along with five sent across the border to Canada. Out of those five, only one is known to still exist and it now beinglovingly restoredby its current owner. The car is expected to be shown afterwards, so keep your eyes open for this unique piece of history in the next few months.Click herefor plenty of information and to track the progress of the build.
