May 2012 Issue of Hot Rod Deluxe Magazine

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, Features, Magazine, Old Images, Racing

Mark reports that the recent edition of Hot Rod Deluxe Magazine has a variety of jeep pictures in it.  Here are a couple.  I have yet to pick up my copy.

Mark writes, “Found this cool copy of Hot Rod Deluxe magazine – May 2012 edition while in Barnes and Noble the other day. This nice little gem features a ton of Willys cars, trucks and quite a few Willys Jeeps as well. See pics attached. Page 6 features the first Four Wheel Drive Grand Prix in 1965 with allot of Jeeps in the pic. Page 33 features Bob Panella’s huge collection of Willys cars and trucks. Scattered throughout the rest of the pages you will find race jeeps and tricked out jeeps from back in the day which are pretty cool.”

1966 CJ-6 Ely, Iowa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was $5500. **SOLD**

“31k original miles
Original F head 4 cylinder engine, with maybe 5 hours of use since rebuilt professionally. (Rebuit this year.) My mechanic went through the whole thing from front to back, top to bottom.
New hoses, fuel lines, gauges, battery, cables, professionally rebuilt carburetor and clutch kit.

I purchased this jeep from Southern Missouri intending to use it on my farm, but it takes up too much room in my garage and I just don’t use it like I thought I would. When I bought it, it hadn’t run in years, but the body and frame were unbelievably clean. It had been used on a large hunting ranch by a hunting club until it stopped running. They said it hasn’t been on a road for at least 30 years. Thus the clean condition underneath.

It was painted the camouflage many years ago, but the original Indian Ceramic (orange) is still pretty shiny where they didn’t paint or where the green has peeled off. Because it was used in the woods a lot, there are plenty of dings in the fenders, etc. It does have a decent homemade roll bar. (I read that there were no stock roll bars made for these.)

Another rarity is the steel hard top. I was told that it is worth $1200 alone, in any condition. It includes steel doors in decent condition and a lift gate. (Lift gate window is missing and latch doesn’t function properly, but looks easily fixable.) The top and doors are included with the sale.

It has the stock triple stick manual transmission: one is the 3 speed + reverse, next is 2 or 4WD, last is high – low range. And the low range is VERY low on this thing. I have been told that because of the low gearing, CJ-6’s are highly sought after as rock crawlers.

Well, I’m way over budget. So my loss can be your gain. I’ve spent almost $8000 on this since last year, primarily on mechanical refurbishing.”

Red River Offroad Tour’s Newest CJ-6

James and Tish run Red River Offroad Tours in New Mexico.  You might remember the post I did about their CJ-6s here.   They are now on Facebook, too.

James emailed me recently about his recently completed Recovery CJ-6.  The CJ6 is set up to be used as a ATV/UTV/Jeep Recovery vehicle in the mountains of Red River and Taos, New Mexico.

It’s a 1973 CJ-6 with a stock 304 3-speed and a D20 with Terra Low.  It has a 4’lift 35’s.  The bed winch is a Ramsey 10,000 pounder.  On the bumper is a Smitty Built 10,000# winch mounted on the ARB bumper.

Early CJ-6 Body? Quartz Hill, Ca $1200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6

The seller believes this is a prototype CJ-6 body.  Perhaps someone can take a closer look, as I am no expert on CJ-6s.

“Early 1950’s Jeep CJ6 body tub (this one is similar to the M170 ambulance)

I think this is a prototype body made between 1953 and 1955 after the military version but before the civilian version was released. All tool boxes are factory items, it has the passenger side drop where the spare tire was located in the military version – but there’s a toolbox lid on it. It does not have the 24volt connection on the passenger side, it does have the “JEEP” logo on the side. Included with this body are the dashboard (original plus one that was installed over the top of the original), the steering column, and the cowl vent lid. The dashboard is taller than other CJ versions by a couple of inches. The left side of the dash has a glove box (you can see it in the picture) with the lid. I think I’ve still got the taillights for it as well.

It also comes with the 50 gallon large fuel tank under the drivers floorboard (you can see the filler housing on the left side behind the door). I think this was a military-only item as I’ve never seen this tank in a CJ model.

Unfortunately some previous owner torched this body off of the original frame, and cut the bottom of the steering column off as well as some body mounts. Everything is repairable, and there is only a little rust (though there is some bondo in the passenger side behind the door). The body looks straight – it’s about a 20 footer if it were painted.

I have a few other willys and jeep parts available – 86 CJ7 body with windshield, 6 point rollcage for CJ7, willys truck body and frame, cj5/6 heater vent plenum

If you’re looking for a CJ6 body this is a lot cheaper than the Omix-Ada bodies out there – plus it’s got some unique features.”
