Public shout out to Steve Trombetta (aka - CJ5/442) for the lead on my new CJ-6. Steve had it on the hook and emailed to ask me a few questions about what it was like to own/wheel one. I gave him my honest opinion and said if he didn't grab it, then I'd be interested. Well, here I am airing up the tire. I went and bought it last night. It's been sitting for 6 years. Steve, thanks buddy. I owe ya one. Like my "Project Hatari!", this one is also a former Border Patrol '71 CJ-6. It's uncanny looking at the dash and over the hood. It's got the same original unpainted patina Hatari! had...and is in almost as poor condition! Time warp. This one seems to need pretty much everything. I won't be completely replicating Hatari! with this one, but I won't be chopping it up for a gonzo build either. Couple highlights: Original 225/T14/Spicer 18, flanged rear D44, D27 front with 4.88s (same as Hatari!) Factory exhaust manifolds are still there! Factory radiator is there, but will probably need a recore at minimum. Seats were recovered with lots of padding and cloth fabric. I may keep 'em they're that good, although vinyl would be more appropriate. Old-school Belleview winch that needs a total rebuild and is missing the clutch. Probably need all new bearings, wiring, motor, cable...and a new mount. The current mount is kinda scary. Warn (or Saturn) Overdrive Neat old Sears hubs on the Dana 27 (although on this one I'm probably going to use my disc-brake Dana 30 I have for sale that came off my '63 CJ-6) Old-school rollcage built inside (I'll check the tube thickness to see if it's decent. Doesn't look like pipe, so as long as it's 0.120-wall I may keep it and build off of it) Meyers hard top (doors kinda wasted - driver's needs some work) Body is pretty solid despite the look. He carried 55-gallon drums of diesel in the back, so the cargo floor is all hammered and somebody cut out the floor to get to the fuel tank lines rather than dropping the tank. I'll have to go through the engine to get it fired again, probably rebuild the carb (at minimum), rebuild the distributor, cooling system, all new brakes and master cylinder (the rears are kinda seized), flush the fuel system, clean the fuel tank, replace all the fuel lines, reseal and check the tranny and T-case, new tires and wheels, new suspension (or at the very least new bushings since these are wasted)....oh man and that's just the start.
