Does anyone have any information on VINs for earliest year Wagoneers? I have a Red Wagoneer titled as a '65 but with the older grill. VIN is 1414c18412 Does anyone know if that is within range for a '65?
Or does anyone know where on the web I could look it up myself? The repair manuals I have don't split out the years on the VINS that old.
I'll check the engine when I get home this weekend. I think it is indeed the Tornado I-6 engine. Though is that Super Tornado? I think the I6 version of the Hurricane in my Willys Truck is the Super Hurricane or something.
Three Jeeps with three different 6 cylinder engines since I also have a Jeepster Commando Wagon.
There's no 'Super Tornado', but the old Hurricane 226 was the foundation on which the Tornado was developed. There's a high and low-compression version of this engine. Jeep offered the low compression version in '64-'65 because of complaints of pinging.
