My DJ-6 research
I did some research and ask about my DJ-6 on many discussion forum and on Facebook.
I found a thread on JeepsCanada Forum;
It worth nothing to try so I asked…got no answer.
Then I asked Dave at ewillys to post it;
The owner answered me.
“Hi Pascal, the DJ6 was bought many years ago to donate its engine to a CJ5, but it never happened. It apparently spent its life in southern Alberta, probably south of Calgary as it has only one rust spot on the driver’s side. I picked the jeeps up about 70 km north of here. The engine serial # on my DJ6 is 4J418868. The last 2 numbers are kind of hard to read, so it is fairly close to yours which means they are both original engines. The DJ6 paint is raven black. You can post all the pictures you want. If I decide to sell it I will let you know. When spring comes I will probably start fixing it, first the brakes. My rear axle has 2 sets of spring mounts, one a little farther in on the axle that the set that is used. I was talking to an old jeep collector last spring at a car show and he said he remembered reading about this occurring on some of the early series as they used up old stock from discontinued models in this case probably the DJ3. I don’t know if this is true as info on the DJ6 is scarce. I have an owners manual for 1965 CJ and DJ jeeps it is about 83 pages, but does not list any options, the options would be nice to see.”
Here is pictures of his DJ-6:
I was lucky enough to find an 1965 Owner manual and DJ-6 specifications data for year 1965 and 1966. I posted those here:
I think it’s a good story! Two subsequent rare jeep in Canada! Wow!
I will add more pictures of my DJ-6 in the next post. Stay tune!
