Mail Jeep

Hey i was wondering why there is never a real demand for the old Mail Jeeps. Does anyone know of a good reason of why not to get one. They seem to be all over and cheep as dirt.

Just a guess but I think that most of them are 4x2? And none of them were built for off-road?

Thinking the same thing. They are all? (i think) 4x2's and most are right hand drive. That would be painful to deal with.

I don't know what engine they had in them though. That might be worth getting but my guess is that it is a 4.2 carburated so not hard to come by in the aftermarked world. The rear axle? Probably an AMC 20? I'm sure someone here will know.

All of the Mail Jeeps I have ever seen had limited slip Dana 44's with the springs mounted above the axle.

2 wheel drive,(for the most part),right hand drive,(takes a little to get use to), can't remove top. Most came with auto trans also. Still cool Jeep though. Would make a sweet ride to tow behind a motor home.
