This 1971 Jeep Mail Carrier is a one-of-a-kind hot rod. Built in a
professional shop to be a SEMA showpiece, this ride is a
no-expense-spared piece of machinery. The Original U.S. Postal
Service-issued Jeep has been highly modified to upgrade performance
and drivability. Many body modifications, such as a drastically
chopped top, a custom retractable cloth sunroof and smoothed
firewall give this Jeep a low smooth look. It rides on a complete
custom-built chassis that's highly detailed and features a chrome
tubular front suspension and a chrome bar setup rear suspension.
Four-corner Air Ride suspension allows the Jeep to lay practically
flat on the ground for a sleek look. Powder-coated red Wilwood
brake calipers and drilled rotors give the Jeep plenty of stopping
power and are set behind the custom billet Budnik wheels. Powering
this hot rod is a highly chromed 383ci V8 Chevy engine with two
4-barrel carburetors backed by a Turbo 400 automatic transmission.
To keep with its mail carrier roots, the right-hand drive steering
wheel position was retained. To do so, a custom right-hand drive
steering rack had to be custom fabricated. Custom red seats, custom
dash and gauges, chrome steering column with billet steering wheel
are just a few additional interior features. An over-the-top Kicker
stereo system with Bluetooth has also been installed. As highly
modified as it is, The Jeep does retain some original features. The
original sliding side doors and large swing open rear door with
giant Jeep embossed letters allow the wide-open access to interior.
The original grille was retained to keep the nostalgic Jeep
