Kaiser Jeep FJ-6 Fleetvan 4X2

Our friends over at offroaders.com sent us these images of a Kaiser Jeep FJ-6 Fleetvan that was sitting for sale. Talk about an unusual Jeep, you’d be the talk of the town showing up on a trail ride with one of these. The FJ-6 is a longer version of the FJ-3 and is based on a CJ-6 chassis.

HISTORY: The Jeep FJ-3 Fleetvan was a compact delivery van manufactured by Willys Motors and Kaiser-Jeep from 1961 to 1965. It was based on the DJ-3A Dispatcher, but equipped with the F-134 Hurricane engine. Two models were available, the FJ-3 and the longer FJ-3A. It came standard with the fam iliar Borg-Warner T-90 three-speed manual transmission. A Borg-Warner automatic was offered as an option.
Right-hand-drive FJ-3s were made for the U. S. Postal Service. Most of these had horizontal grille slats in contrast to the seven vertical slats found on standard models.
