1978 Jeep CJ6

***Vendor supplied images***


  • 4.2L I6 powerplant with 4-speed manual transmission
  • Bright orange livery that’s peppered with stickers and decals
  • Impressive interior in very good order

The Appeal

The CJ-6 was a model with impeccable longevity. First debuting for the 1956 model year, this all-purpose off-roader soldiered on (get it?) all the way up until 1984. Whether it’s been as a forest service jeep, a fire engine, a leisure car or beach patrol, these wagons are anything if not versatile. 
Built in 1978, this example has been nicely kept and carries a unique personality of its own, in the form of plenty of rebellious skull motifs.
