The only common complaint among early Jeep utility owners was the
lack 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 of
a Jeep. The demand was not great for the stretched CJ but they stayed in
production from 1955 until the advent of the CJ-7 in 1976. They
continued in production for export until 1981. Only 50,172 were
manufactured, 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.
