The GM-sourced 225 V-6 was one of the high spots in the mid-’60s for Jeep. The CJ and the C-101 shared the option, making 160 gross horsepower and 235 lb-ft. of torque; it was a compact powerhouse that gave these Jeeps the first decent power-to-weight ratio. Even with the standard 3.73:1 ratio, the C-101 was zippy. With the optional 4.27 or 4.88:1 ratio, it could give grandpa some serious stoplight-racing capabilities. A little known fact is that the V-6 was seriously considered as a replacement for the AMC-sourced 232 inline-six as the base engine in the Wagoneer and Gladiator. It had more power and about the same torque. The functional problem was the odd-fire 226. It ran a little too rough for the Wagoneer owner’s delicate sensibilities. Yeah, we know the Edelbrock carb is not stock. It’s temporary while the original is being sorted out.
