The little-known M606 was basically the CJ-3B straight off the
assembly line, with the available heavy-duty options such as larger tires
and springs, and a few special-duty add-ons including blackout lamp on
the left front fender, blackout tail-light covers, and trailer hitch. The
M606 used the standard F-head four-cylinder, and although it had its
own Kaiser model number, serial numbers were in the regular CJ-3B
series. The CJ-3B had been employed by the U.S. military mainly in non-combat roles
such as Navy Shore Patrol, but the M606 designation was apparently used
only for units exported as military aid in the 1960's. The exact year the
designation was first used is unknown. The M606 seen here
is a 1966 model shipped to Argentina. (Luis Mariano Paz)
