69 dj-5a

New to the forum but have researched a few things on here before. I have a 1980 CJ5 that is my toy but I am also looking at a 69 DJ-5A to be my new hunting toy. It has a Chevy V-6 with an automatic turbo 400 transmission. I don't know much about these jeeps but for what I want it for it looks to be in decent shape and the price is right. The only problem I see is it doesn't have the title with it but I think I can get a salvage title potentially?

Does anyone know much about these?

Thanks

laws about titles vary from state to state. that being said, titles can be had but some can cost quite a bit. even hundreds of dollars. being a government surplus vehicle could complicate things, idk.
good luck.

No DJ5 ever had a factory V-6 or a turbo 400. If you have been told that, please check again.

I have an '82 DJ5L with the GM 151 and 3 speed Chrysler 904 trans. The FIRST thing I asked about before I decided to buy mine, was if it had a CLEAR title. Check with your state BEFORE you buy it, you will be glad you did...

I really enjoy mine, it will be a resto-mod edition, restoring it to a classic, but modified/upgraded edition. It's an expensive hobby, as you know/will find out.

The "Chevy" V6 may also be a Buick 225.
Still not stock for a DJ, but were found in both CJ's and Commando's.
Were usually two wheel drive. This may be a limiting factor for someone looking at an offroad vehicle.
