Sounds like it was a straight six truck stock. That's a good thing. It means you don't need to worry about ditching the quadratrac t case.
I agree it must have been a six because it appears the only adapters made for  Chevy sb to 1965 Jeeps were for the six 3 speed Warner T-90, none for the V8 Vigilante engine trans T-89.

Please allow me to correct MY mistake......I was thinking of mid to late 70's FSJ trucks with the quadratrac. Didn't mean to confuse.

Weren't most of these the 230 Tornado straight sixes from the factory?

From what I have read, yes, but some came with the Jeep 327 Vigilante V8.  Before I saw it all I knew is that it was a V8.  Didn't figure it already had an engine swap to a 307 Chevy.
