    I hate to be "that guy" joining a group and immediately posting a Jeep for sale however, here we are. I have been involved in the Jeep community for 32 years and put on a Jeep show every year in Sylvan Beach, NY called "Jeeps at the Beach". Maybe some of you have heard of it? I digress...I am not here to troll or post and run, but I do have a very nice, clean, running, operational 1959 CJ-6 that I am looking to sell. THE ONLY reason I am selling is because I have expanded my business (Smitty's Repair and Restoration-Google me!) and my new shop cost me a lot more than planned. SO~ I have to part with some items, the 6 being one of them.

    It is all there, the metal is good, no real "rot" and has had some previous body work done. My goal was to give her a proper restoration and show it as well as drive it during the fair weather months. That said, she starts, runs, drives, turns, stops and shuts off properly. There may be a light bulb out, there may be a little oil leak here or there, there may be a squeak or rattle, the gages may not all operate every day of the week, but it is a very solid 6. It is currently NY registered, insured and inspected. I drive it at least weekly around town to keep her from getting ornery. The previous owner built the rear bumper, which is also an air tank. The front bumper is aluminum and also obviously not original. The seat brackets are fabricated to flip forward to access a compartment built into the floor. The rear seat bracket is also made to flip back for "tailgating" as he (previous owner) put it. He also installed some aftermarket gages. Aside from those items, everything else is original, or appears to be.

    Please feel free to ask questions, but I will do my best to cover it all to avoid confusion.

    He may be "that guy" but this is a really nice example of an early CJ6. He wouldn't have it if it wasn't! BUMP!

    It's definitely a nice looking six. The bottom pictures show nice solid sheet metal and hat channels and a clean looking frame. I'd be tempted to go look if I had a little more disposable cash right now. Close enough to look at as well.

    Beautiful 6, and seems fairly priced too. If I wasn't waist deep in rebuilding my 5, I'd be tempted. I like the color! Good luck with the sale
