225 V-6's are AMC/Buick motors. It's basically an early version of an odd fire 231. They run about as good as 231's do. Parts are still available, and if you don't like the 225 put a 304 in it. That year Jeep should have the good Dana front axle with the cup style steering joints. Those axles are pretty tough. If you can pick the Jeep up for a reasonable price then go for it.

this engine is a real good engine for the older jeeps
for the weight and horses good engine
I have a 53 cj3a I am putting one into
the 225 has 160 hp at 4000 rpm with mid to high 200's ft lbs of torque
timing is the only issue with these engines
a huge plus is a stronger crank than the even fires
with a 50 or 75 lb flywheel these will idle over obsticles nicely
