UPDATE: As Chris notes, this is a post 72 CJ6, not a 1964.

This looks good on the outside. No interior photos.

    Given the 304 V8 and the 4 inches between front fenders and front of tub, that’s not a ‘64 (has to be ‘72-‘75).

  2. JohnB

    You’re correct. I should have looked more closely to the photos.
    Look at the increased length (3″ IIRC) between the front wheel and the firewall, that was done by AMC to accommodate their V-8s.
    Also, the post ’68 side marker lights, so it is not a ’64.

    I think AMC-era 6s are fairly rare. I don’t recall seeing any.

    Chris, you are absolutely right. I sure spaced this one! I have updated the post.

    JohnB – I think you’re right that they’re rare. Biggest customer was probably the feds for Forest Service and Border. I never saw any in the military but did see CJ5s of 72 – 75 in civilian colors like off-the=shelf purchase and Myers hart tops. Army MPs used them stateside with a blue cherry on top.
    Interesting side not. Starting ’72 you could get a choice of 5 engines in the CJ: 232-6, 258-6,304-V8,
    and 360 or 401 V8s by special order.
    What’s interesting on this sample is the solid back instead of a tail gate. Perhaps changed?

    I never thought about it before, but given there were Renegade CJ-5s and CJ-7s, maybe there was at least a few CJ-6 Renegades? (maybe special order?) I expect they would have a back that looked like this one. My google searches did not produce any examples.

    Dave – Jeep did sell the CJs without tailgates yet not a Renegade. Don’t know if they were special order or not. they were sporty but not as expensive. Roy Clark of country music fame had a 72 CJ with a 6-cyl and a solid back with a spare tire mounted in the middle. Used it to put his fishing boat in the water when he taught fishing in Oklahoma. Almost bought the Jeep from the estate.

    I had a 1975 CJ-6 for many years, with both the 304 V8 and the fixed non-tailgate.
