The auction will sell a very cool postal carFebruary 21, 2021
The auction house Barrett-Jackson has added an unusual Jeep to the list of lots. This is a hot rod based on a dedicated 1971 DJ model that was used as a postal car. The car was being prepared for participation in the SEMA tuning festival.
Jeep retained its distinctive body shape and doors, but the roof has become lower, and therefore the glass has changed. Along with this, a sufficiently large sliding section appeared in the roof.
The car has air suspension, custom Budnik discs and Wilwood brakes, while it is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine with twin Chevrolet carburetors. The motor works in conjunction with the Turbo 400 3-speed automatic transmission.
The salon of the postal car was completely redone. It is worth noting here the presence of a passenger seat (in the original, the model had only a driver’s seat), a different steering wheel, a new dashboard and a “pneuma” control unit. Jeep also equipped the Kicker sound system, which has two large subwoofers, in turn, used chrome and red leather for the interior decoration. It is worth saying that the auction for an unusual car will take place in March this year.
In addition, some time ago it was reported that a car was put up for sale that looks like a rear-view mirror. It should be emphasized that the car is sold by the American dealership Garage Kept Motors.
