Need info on this 64 Jeep, Please.

I got this 1964 Jeep. The VIN says Kaiser, Toledo Ohio. How can I know if this is right? This jeep has all the metal replaced, new brakes, lines, exhaust, shocks, tires etc.....An older guy was working on it and passed away. I found my profile jeep stock and dumped alot of time and money in it to get it where it is now. It is the 92 YJ. I had alot of fun with it. I am wondering how much time and money this 64 is worth putting into. Any info would be great.....Anyone got a close estimate of what it is worth as it sits? It has top, and doors. Just dont have them on it.

They have a much lower value compared to CJs. I sold a fairly decent DJ about a year ago for about $1,200. I would have sold a CJ in the same condition For $3,500 minimal.

I'm not totally convinced it's a DJ. It's hard to tell from my phone but it looks to be 4wd. Plus DJs had the right hand drive. Looking at the body from the doors back, it looks like there was some custom body work done because the rear fenders look odd too.

Ok I retract my previous statement about the doors and fenders.



Can anyone else on a pc or anything bigger than a phone see if that's a differential on the front axle or not?

This is 4x4 based on the pics. It's also got a CJ front clip. Postal jeeps have a 5 slot grille and side vents. It's also got a CJ dash, the postal dash is different. But, the bumpers wrap around like a DJ. So, obviously someone has put a ton of work into this thing to transform it from a DJ to a sort of CJ.
What that does to the value?
Who knows...

I'm with you. Too many odd mods. At the end of the day it's just a postal retrofitted as a wannabe CJ. There are too many CJs out there...

I'd like an answer to this question as well, since we're working on a 1970 here.

If you have a clear title to it, I would bet the DMV could run it for you.

Im trying hard to find out....this is a site for Jeeps only....I figured someone could give a direct (knowledgeable) No guessing answer...Thx alot.

it may not be a postal but the door and rear fender cutouts look like one..all cj's except the 7 and 8 had arches on the back of the door cutout and the rear fender cutouts were rounded on all cj's...1970 and earlier cj5's vin should either have a prefix of 57548 or 8305 and a cj-5a should have 8322...these prefixes would be followed by a 5 or 6 digit serial number..I just sold a 1971 in good condition for $2200..needless to say the buyer was very happy..here is a pic of it which shows the proper door and fender cutout shapes..I noticed also that your jeep has no tail gate..all cj's of that time period did have to the best of my knowledge

I would guess that as we know the tub is a DJ tub, based on the door openings, that either is a DJ that has been converted over to 4wd, or might be one of the rumored dj's that had 4wd or its a cj5 with a dj tub on it. Based on the location of what appears to be the 4wd shifter location I would lean towards the convert to 4wd.

I really appreciate everyone's input. I still am not sure. Haven't had time to go to DMV, Any of the above is absolutely possible, The guy that worked on it has passed and I didn't know him. He took all the facts about this jeep to his grave I reckon. He did do alot of metal work, Probably did have a tailgate, He put alot of work into it. I still am nt positive, But I will keep trying to get the numbers ran on it. What puzzles me is...WHY? why would he put this much time and money getting it to where it is now. I assure you he has replaced all body panels, brakes,rotors, lines, new tires, new exhaust,new shocks.....Just wonder why he would dump this miuch money and time in it if it is worthless... I will keep looking... Thx again. You guys are great.

8322 VIN prefix is indeed a CJ5A, also called the Tuxedo Park. The hood is clearly from a Tux, as indicated by the badge holes in front-lower sides.
Looks pretty clearly like a DJ tub swap.

For more help with this rig, visit the forums at EarlyCJ5.net
The guys there specialize in 1955-1975 CJ5s, and any variants you can imagine.

Yup, that is a DJ tub. The vin swap on a tub from CJ to DJ is only a drill and two pop rivets away. Pretty clean though, worth tinkering with IMHO.

And what Lynn said, earlycj5.com. Good info, great folks.
