The adapter shown above is only for the flex plate and torque converter.
You still have an issue of the bell housing and starter on the left. If there was one made it probably wasn't many 50 years ago. The popularity code on that engine had to be " you're kidding me, right?"

where to purchase an adapter:
 
AMC originally made these adapters - NOS (New Old Stock) is always a possibility 
... maybe the KENNEDY's in FLORIDA ?
the best bet is to befriend a machinist with a LATHE or hire it done in a machine shop 

You could always do a GOOGLE SEARCH by the old AMC Part Number listed several POSTS above ... 

AMC  Part Number:     321-6130     

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

As far as the 1975 Postal  DJ-5  with a I-6 cylinder AMC (regardless of Cubic Inch)

This crankshaft should already be set up with a FLANGE  
but
You mentioned that "YOUR" 6-cylinder AMC  I-6  was mated to an
OLD  Borg-Warner Automatic transmission ???

I was a USPS Letter Carrier for a few years in the mid-1970's & I would bet my LUNGS that the POST OFFICE did  ... NOT ... use the antique BORG-WARNER Automatic transmission

I beLIEve  that Borg-Warmer stopped making the M-11 & M-12 when AMC / JEEP switched over to the TorqueFlyte transmissions in 1972

So ... if YOU actually DO have a Borg-Warner auto-tranny = my BET would be that someone along the line did an ENGINE / TRANSMISSION swap  into your  1975  DJ-5  

IMHO

I guess the easier question on an oddball vehicle is which side is the starter on?

The starter is on the left side of the engine if you are facing it from the front of the vehicle.

As for the postal Jeeps the research I've done into them says they continued to use the borg m11 and m35 until 74 with 75 being the changeover year to the 727. 

My guess would be AM general got handed all the left over stock when AMC made the switch and continued to use them till the stock ran out.

Then it's a right hand starter.
1/3 of the way there. Now to guess the bolt pattern of the trans and what crank.

just an  FYI  from my RACING Days 

I have used a 258 cid  I-6  Flywheel 

On my V-8 AMC's  because, I beLIEve they have a NEUTRAL (or a more 'neutral') BALANCE

So ... my best GUESS would be that the Manual / thus the AUTOMATICS would have

The SAME Bolt Pattern ...

Ahh, got it!
