1996 Jeep CJ6

Ground up restoration, everything is brand new, no expense spared. Restored by a well respected and now deceased Mechanic and restorer of military vehicles and others. It is very fun to drive, fast. Huge power for its tiny frame. The dauntless V6 has a huge 20 kilo flywheel to soften the uneven firing order (a cut down V8), this gives immense torque, it would crawl over anything . It has never been off road and has still under 1000 kilometers since built. It would have to be the best example of a CJ6 around. The Jeep is kept in its own sea container which is brand new and custom built, this could become extra in the sale if desired, to insure safe transport of Jeep and parts.

$19,000
