What type of Jeep CJ-6?

Has anyone seen a CJ-6 like this? No tailgate and tapered rear end. I'm considering buying it, but wanted to know more about it. 4.2 - 1978 model is what I'm being told.

Definitely looks custom. Droopy diaper syndrome.

Some beer, imagination, and sorry body work skills gets you a CJ-6 like this. Definitely an owner modification somewhere in the past.

My 75 came with no tailgate and a 4.2, but not like that rear end work. Maybe a custom storage box with a sloped lid??

That's an interesting modification. I wonder what the purpose was? Droopy diaper syndrome...

id get it if the price was right but put the body back to stock with a tailgate lol. Could be worse, it could be a 60 cj6 with an f134.

In the 70's I owned a really nice 64 CJ-6. Did a Chevy V-8 conversion, Warn over drive, power lok rear, 11" brakes 12-15 tires, Whitco top etc.. I though it was such an odd Jeep since everyone else had CJ-5's. Sold it after owning it for 8 years. Now everyone wants one. Makes me wish I never sold it. Sad thing is, the guy I sold it to butchered it up.

You can fit 32s on one that old without lifting it at all.

My point was that you don't need a lift for 31s.

Where are you located? South Africa made CJ6's with a unique rear similar to that.

The South African military CJ6 had a weird sort of a tray-back design. http://boyink.com/cj6/ex-south-african-army-cj6/

But it would have been right-hand drive if it was built in RSA.
