Another CJ model, the Jeep® CJ-6 features a 20-inch longer wheelbase than the CJ-5. Introduced in 1955 as a 1956 model, the CJ-6 wasn’t as popular with civilians in the United States as it was in other countries such as Sweden and South America. But, the CJ-6 Jeeps were popular with the U.S Forest Service. Around 50,172 had been made when the series went out of production completely in 1975.
Built from 1955 through 1975, the CJ-6 model was offered to appease Jeep® utility owners whose only complaint about the CJ-type models was lack of storage space.
The CJ-6 seen today was used for a volunteer ambulance service to transport the sick to the hospital in Troy, Michigan. The vehicle is in remarkably original condition with 14,000 original miles—a truly amazing antique.
