Carl Sandburg’s 1962 CJ-6 in Flat Rock, North Carolina

• CATEGORIES: Features

Pulitzer Prize winning poet and author Carl Sandburg was the owner of a CJ-6 which can still be seen at his form home, now a National Historic Site, in Flat Rock, North Carolina (presently closed to tours due to Covid). It looks like a beautifully persevered CJ-6.

According to a 2016 comment on Pinterest, “This 1962 Willys Jeep was a gift to Carl Sandburg for his help in writing the script for the movie The Greatest Story Ever Told. It is on display in what was once the Goat Dairy building at Connemara, his home and farm for the latter years of his life in Flat Rock, NC.”
