The DJ-6 barely qualifies as a "Sibling of the CJ-3B." Production of the two models overlapped only slightly, with the long-wheelbase DJ built starting in 1965 and continuing to 1973, according to a brief mention in Jim Allen's Illustrated Buyer's Guide: Jeep. But this is also a Jeep model you don't see very often, and there hasn't been a lot of ink devoted to it in Jeep books, or bandwidth in Jeep websites. So I thought it was useful to provide this look at an excellent example in Jim Marski's Historic Civilian Jeeps Collection in Colorado.
The two-wheel-drive DJ-6 version of the CJ-6 Universal Jeep, had a long 101-inch wheelbase, and was equipped with the F-head 4-cylinder Hurricane, or the V6 Dauntless engine.
The right-hand-drive DJ-6 in the Marski collection is a 1968 model in very good original condition, with F134 engine and an automatic transmission. It was built for the Los Angeles, California Park District as one of a handful used exclusively in the parks.
The 2-speed automatic transmission is apparently a Borg-Warner gearbox. The shifter is this small lever in the dash, beside the steering column.
