The DJ-5A postal version of the DJ-5 Dispatcher 100, is immediately recognizable by its extended grille with only 5 slots (although the earliest version had a standard DJ-5 front end). It also had an extra large doorway, sliding door, and right-hand steering. Kaiser used a Chevrolet four-cylinder engine and Powerglide automatic transmission. American Motors used its own inline six-cylinder during the 1970's, and AM General continued to produce variations into the 1980's, using a number of different four- and six-cylinder engines and transmissions. Many postal Jeeps were still in service in 1997, but approaching surplus status. This one was photographed in the Washington, D.C. area. (Dan Fedorko)
