    Very nice! Certainly appears to be all original. :) Has it been restored? I ask because Spruce Tip Green wasn't used in '60. My CJ5 is a '60 and I painted it Spruce Tip because I love the color. Yours certainly appears to be Spruce Tip and not the green that would be original to the year. Congrats on the CJ6! :)

    Looks to be in really good shape! I like your picture with the wrangler, it gives scale to how they compare in length. Scored some extra wheels and chains too. :driving::driving::driving::driving:

    Looks good. Original top and bows too - they've gotta be hard to come by.

    I imagine it was then. I wasn't aware that the colour wasn't an original 1960 colour. The serial number does match the year, though.

    Yes, that's my favorite picture too. 53 years between them.

    There's a Ramsey PTO winch on it too....gotta see if that works. All I need is an overdrive.

    PTO, Venting Windshield, Stock top hardware, and it's on a '6?

    That's awesome!

    Boy.....for an officer like me, that's tempting. ;)

    Anyone have any plans for the side benches that came in these sometimes?
