Below is the history of the Jeep CJ-6, from Wikipedia
Engine(s): F-head 4 cylinder, Perkins Diesel, 225 CID V6 Dauntless, Iron Duke I4, 304 CID V8
Wheelbase: 101 in (2565 mm)
The CJ-6 was simply a 20-inch (508 mm) longer-wheelbase (101 in) CJ-5. Introduced in 1955 as a 1956 model, the CJ-6 was never very popular in the United States. Most CJ6 models were sold to Sweden and South America. The U.S. Forest Service put a number of CJ-6 Jeeps in to use. American sales ended in 1975. Just 50,172 had been made when the series went out of production completely in 1981. (Production ended in 1975 for the U.S., but continued in other countries.) President Ronald Reagan owned and used a CJ-6 on his ranch.
About My CJ-6 (Phil’s Jeep)
My Jeep is a Right Hand Drive Jeep. Every time I do a search online for them, I find less than 10 right hand drive CJ-6 jeeps in the USA and mine is always the oldest. That makes this Jeep incredibly RARE and will certainly be an eye catcher when it is finally on the road.
When I received the jeep, it was basically a stripped down tub on wheels. There is a small dent in the back of the jeep and the frame was bent. Because of this, I bought a Jeepster Commando frame. It is essentially the same frame, but the mounts need to be moved and the last 10 inches or so needs to be chopped off.
