The only common complaint among early Jeep utility owners was thelack of room. This call was answered in the form of the CJ-6. Essentially a CJ-5 with 20 extra inches of wheelbase (101 inches total),the CJ-6 offered the storage space of a small pickup and the mobility ofa Jeep. The demand was not great for the stretched CJ but they stayed inproduction from 1955 until the advent of the CJ-7 in 1976. Theycontinued in production for export until 1981. Only 50,172 weremanufactured, making them a fairly rare bird these days. This is a 2004 frame-up restoration of a 1956 CJ-6 by Craig Evins in Texas. (Jim Allen)
