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 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.
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 remarkable condition with 14,000 original miles—a truly amazing antique. It has its original tires, paint, and top.
