The capacitance will have a nominal value irrespective of the applied voltage. In theory it's value will change with a change of applied voltage but it will not be of practical significance. So the voltage rating of the capacitor suitable for a 12V system will be fine for 6V. It should be around 500V or higher even though the capacitor is on the low voltage primary side of the ignition coil it will have approx 250V induced across the points. The service manual specifies 0.25 to 0.32uF capacitor for an FJ series.
