“Turn Key

Original “Dauntless Buick V6″
We had the Bottom End of the Motor rebuilt.

The CJ6 has a 101″ wheelbase. That’s 20” longer than a CJ5

This Jeep was purchased from a Private Owner in Pacific Grove, Ca. 20 years ago

This Jeep CJ6 is in original condition except for the Paint and Wheels.
We painted it Green and used it to Hunt a few times a year.

Comes with the Warner PTO Driven Winch
Also comes with the Tow Bar

It has been kept garaged the entire time and has very low miles since the bottom end was rebuilt.

This CJ6 Runs and Drives Great

Very few of these are For Sale.
We just don’t use this Jeep much anymore
He needs a new home”

    Hello-

    Looked at the CL ad and noticed no High/Low or In/Out levers, yet CL ad lists it as 4WD.

    Am I missing something (very possible in my case, lol!).

    Otherwise a very nice “6”.

    Luke,
    If you look closely in a couple interior photos you can barely see part of the single stick 18. It was the 2nd year for the single stick lever and, when in 2WD, was really hidden under the dash on the floor. The shift lever was shaped like a crescent, so when it was at its final position of 4WD low, the top of the knob would be pointing to the back of the Jeep. We had a 65 Tux with this shift.

    Thank you Barney!

    That’s what I really love about ewillys, the knowledge base of the people who come here. I get a lot of good info from the comments.

    I had no idea of a single stick 18 prior to this.

    My 65 CJ6 is set up in the “conventional” layout, so it threw me to not see the levers I am accustomed to.

    Thanks again!

    Luke,
    It’s possible that the move to the single stick was a mid year change which Jeep was known for. Or, that they started putting them in the Tux first. I’m not sure as I don’t have that Tux any more. My Tux was an f4, so I know engine wasn’t the issue (and V6 wasn’t offered until 66). It’s also possible at some point that the twin stick 18 remained as an option. I believe this because the dated owner’s manual in our low mileage 71 shows both shift patterns available. Opinion: The twin was better for Ag work as a better, more sturdy, set up; the same reason the rock crawler people prefer them today.

    Luke & Barney: I’m just glad there are smarter folks than me on here! I learn stuff all the time, too. 🙂
