UPDATE: This is back on eBay (thanks Steve).

(04/14/2013) This CJ-6 was originally purchased as a Tour Jeep for Ouray tours.

“This super rare, all original Jeep CJ6 with the factory 304. It is a great little Jeep with 41,000 original miles, I bought this gem back in ’09. I searched high and low for a CJ6 for years and was after 3 things, a rust free body, original V8 and one painted originally “Copper Poly” which is like a burnt orange, real cool color. You can see a lot of the Copper poly peaking through everywhere, The original paint is under the toolbox cover.

This Jeep has rich history, I bought it from where it lived its whole life, Ouray Colorado, the “The Jeep Capital of the World”. It was originally purchased as a Tour Jeep and used as part of the historic “San Juan Senic Jeep Tours” back in the 70s and 80s and remained there until I bought it, hence why the low miles, it never got far out of southern Colorado. For those who are not familiar, the “San Juan Senic Jeep Tours” was the first Jeep tour company in Ouray, established in 1946 and is still in operation today (see there website www.sanjuanjeeptours.com). You can see several original pictures of other Jeep tours back in the day in the book “JEEP” by David Fetherston.

As mentioned before, this Jeep is rust free. The body is completely original, rust free original floors, fenders and tub, only a very light haze of surface rust on the underside of the floors. The original windshield frame is rust free as well unlike most that have cancer developing. The undercarriage and floor supports are amazingly rust free. The floor supports are super solid, unlike all the other CJ6s I looked at. As mentioned before, the original paint is Copper poly code 526. The paint code is stamped on the cowl tag as seen in the picture. I bought an original 1974 Jeep brochure after I bought this Jeep that contains a picture of a CJ6 painted Copper poly. All the original stickers are still intact including the engine data sticker on the grille, the VIN sticker on the dash, the Warranty sticker on the dash, and bronze data tag on the dash (really cool looking).

The drivetrain is in excellent condition and all original numbers matching, the data tag on valve cover corresponds with the VIN sticker build date on the dash (see pic). The engine code 708h13 breaks down as 7~1974, 08~August, H~304 V8, 13~13th day of the month. You can verify all this information at www.planethoustonamx.com/main/amc_valve_cover_id.htm. The 8th digit in the VIN # contains is an H which designates that it originally came with the 304. It starts and runs perfectly, it has a lot of power and sounds good, it doesnt have any noises or lifter noise. It drives like a dream, it has power steering which is super nice.

This is a very rare CJ6, they only made 2826 in 1974 and less than 1/3 of them came with 304 V8s. Not to many left around and not to mention worth saving”
