Go to Google.com and type in "title search by VIN number" and it will give a lot of place to start as I just did a search using that and many options were returned

There is enough vin to know alas its not a CJ5, but rather a CJ6. Measure the wheel base, should be 101 inches, CJ5 was 83.5 inches. Three tranny choices, 2 3spds and one 4spd. Engine would have been ether a 235 straight six or a 304 V-8. Rear axle amc(weak axle shafts), the front a Dana 30. I always thought for off road use the 6 made a better rig. The V-8 be it 304, 360, or 401 were all over square engines, bigger bore than stroke and suffered from weak rods. The 304 suffered from lousy heads, poor flow, and they cracked between the exhaust ports and the water jacket on the center ports, but the 401 police interceptor engine used in many J-20 and Wagoneers had good heads,and they interchange. 360 heads work as well, but wont give the compression the 401 heads will. The earlier models used the over head cam "tornado" engine which was a nice engine when built right, gobs of low end torque. The bigger V-8 engines are hard to find, most AMC cars got the 304 if they got a V-8. The 76 got an option for an automatic, the GM turbo 400. In larger vehicles like my old J-20 this was hooked up to a QuadraTrac transfer case. I think, other than the lousy gas mileage because of its all wheel drive aspect, it was the best transfer case ever. Sure beats a New Process 904. Second advantage, because its a GM Turbo 400, do a case swap and a small block goes in easy. Standard GM $00 wont hook to transfer case, out put spline is wrong. In days gone by you could almost get a case swap and a rebuild for just letting the shop keep the AMC bolt pattern case.
