Please help with new Jeep acquisition


Recommended Posts

So I have made a new purchase of what I believe is a M606/CJ3B

I have no history of the vehicle or Jeeps - I have always been a Land Rover person.  I know it is a bitsa with Land Rover lights and heater but not sure what else is genuine.  I cannot see a chassis number and have attached pictures of the engine number.  The data plate on the dash shows a 2006 date and a modern style VIN hence the Q plate

Wondering if people can tell me what is genuine and what is wrong.  It has not run for 10 years so a full service and new oils is first priority

Here is some info on chassis number locations - https://cj3b.info/SerialNos/SerialNosFrame.html

I hope this helps. In my experience, the actual stampings on american vehicles are usually quite hard to find, as mentioned in the article. Am just wrapping up the recommissioning of a 1949 D30 Dodge Coronet, and the numbers were a devil to find. Luckily I was cleaning the chassis off anyway but until I had taken all the paint off, the numbers were totally invisible!

By the way, it’s still a nice vehicle, and I hope you enjoy it!
