Steve, is that homemade?
I'm working on a 56 cj6. pile of parts now. hope to install 225 v6, t90, d18, d27, d44. early mod. ser.#10044
Cool, only 9 between yours and mine.
I've got a 62 CJ6 with a F134 that has sat in my garage for 3 years being slowly worked on... Hoping in the next month or so get it running again and on the road.
It's been a while since someone added a "6". Intermediate, not early. 304, T15, D20, power steering, Whitco top, original interior.
Wow, great looking 6!
I have two, 64 with f head and a 56 with f head, #61 off the assembly line if I decoded it correctly.
Mine build thread is in my signature
Here is the CJ6 that I started way back in 15, I think.
I'm happy with it, but there always projects. Hopefully power Saginaw will be next, and a d30.
I would love to know how you did your second fuel tank?
I have started a 1969 with V6
Well last year I had three CJ-6s and now I'm down to just one. It's compostwerks 62 Perkins. Sold two to Mr. Sullivan in NH. I just covered it up for the winter, cuz I have the M416 and 46 in the barn this winter to finish them up.
Farm Jeep Willy is a 1958 CJ6 with a custom 2x5x1/4" frame, Aqualu body, swapped in 225, SM465, Dana 20, Scout 44 front with Ford internal spline hubs, Chevy spindles and backing plates, narrowed to early Jeep width, and a Dana 60, also appropriately narrowed. 15x8 Wheel Vintiques with 33x10.50x15 BFG All Terrains, Warn VR8000 winch, and now weighs around 4400# I think. It tows a camper regularly, has towed a 6500# skid steer on a two axle trailer a few times, used in the brush as the paint can attest to, and is waiting for power steering and brakes. Its Rhino lined inside because I have 4 children who love playing in it and using it like a jungle gym.
My take is that they are popular with the classic jeep crowd, but not sought after like the 8s.
Probably against all rules, written and unwritten, but here is the basics
Started out as 1/8 in sheet metal. Cut to fit the "6" area (extra 20 in.) under the body. Don't remember the exact dimensions.
from underneath Its setting on conveyor belt, with the straps welded to the tank, and bolted to the frame
this is a heat shield over the Flowmaster 50, and under the tank
tank top, fuel hose from filler neck and through the bed. bolted cutout is for access to the sending unit
Holds a little over 9 gal. It has 2 (I think) baffles in each direction inside
Have owned 2 1966 CJ6's, both V6/3spd/OD/4.88's/ with hydrobboost/FF on the last one . Both sold under duress, there are at least two more CJ6's here in Alaska in the Anchorage/Wasilla area.

19,000 miles total
