SSDutch CJ6 Jeep Blog
- New Tailgate
Funny how some parts just fall in your lap. Today I grabbed this nice looking tailgate off eBay. It will replace the one on SSDutch that has been reinforced with rebar on the outside, and 3/16” treadplate on the inside. I’m not sure what the previous owner used it for (Dick, are you still reading the site?) but I have no need for such a heavy duty setup.
- New Dash
I scored this nice original dash from another ECJ5.com member. The current dash in SSDutch has gauges mounted where I need to run defrost ducts, so starting with a “blank slate” will be nice.
- 1958 CJ6 FS
From the EarlyCJ5.com for sale board:
Arizona Jeep with a great body with no rust holes anywhere or nasty dents. Repainted several years ago and very presentable, but does have the usual dings and nicks and chips. Seats are covered in khaki canvass and are nice and tight, no rips stains or tears.
Fitted with a Ford 170 cu. in. in-line overhead valve 6. Original factory Willys 4 speed with compound low, auxiliary 10 gallon gas tank, 9000 lb. Ramsey pto winch. New windshield, NOS speedometer, recent suspension and exhaust work. Good Courser radial tires on white spoke 16” wheels on the ground, non-matching spare and wheel.
Full Best Top in good condition—no tears or splits.
Not on the Jeep, but included: tow bar, grille guard and draw bar.
This Jeep starts and runs like a champ and everything on it works except temp. gauge, choke cable and parking brake. Really needs nothing to use and enjoy as is. Link to Ad >>
- 1975 CJ6 Owned By Kevin McGill
Another reader submission - this one from another Holland, Michigan native. Kevin McGill writes:
It is a 75 with the 304 V8, 3 speed, kinda blown if you ask me. It has the original engine with data stickers, original tranny, original seats, the body and frame were worked over and the frame is rhino coated along with the interior. The body has a fairly fresh paint job. Probably about a year old. 32” generic shoes (that will change soon) and american racing 10” rims. I think that aside from the one that I saw in Colorado about 6 years ago, I have one of the best looking ones out there. The frame and body have NO rust. It is a really nice ride with all working equipment. The only strange thing is the CJ-7 dash with after market Pro-Comp dials. Still cool.
