Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, offers this Garnet Metallic classic.

This vintage, 79,978 original mile woody was a one owner Grand for her first 27 years and lovely looked after by that owner. Over the Jeep’s entire history she has averaged just 2,600 miles per year travelling the salt free roads of the State of Montana. Carfax and Autocheck likewise confirm no accidents ever reported.

The Garnet Metallic finish appears recent and looks beautiful. Likewise the wood siding was fitted at the time of re-painting and is in excellent condition. The other external bits including the original wood trim border, exterior wheels, bumpers, and front grill further evidence the low usage but do have the normal amount of ageing and wear present. The whitewall tires she rolls on are brand new.

The honey leather interior is what truly sets the one apart. The vast majority of Grands with this exterior color were fitted with burgundy interiors. In the current market, the burgundy interiors retail poorly compared to the honey or sand alternative and this honey flavor is much more rare to see in this color combination. It is no contest weighing what current collectors prefer. And those leather seats have just been resurfaced and look as stunning as the images portray.

The interior appointments have all been serviced and are functioning well including power windows (rear window operates via dash mounted switch only), power door locks, power mirrors, power seats, cruise control, air conditioning and heat, along with the original AM/FM/Cassette player, all the way down to the digital clock on the dash. The original carpeting remains in very good condition with just the almost universal wear showing in the very rear tight corners of the cargo area but even that is easily covered by a Weathertech cargo matt.

The 360ci V8 engine, transmission and the 4 wheel High and Low settings have all been serviced and are performing just as they should. We have four full pages of precisely detailed garage service invoices covering all the mechanical and electrical works that were organized and sorted. Over $5,000 was just spent on items you can’t see to make her a reliable ride. Those just completed invoices are available to interested parties, upon request. We don’t spend monies on the appearances of engine bays and undercarriages as most all of our buyers are planning on driving and enjoying these Grands regularly. Normal wear, aging and surface rust will be present there but all will pass stringent New York State inspection guidelines.

Keep in mind of course these are 30 +/- year old machines with technology that even back when they were made was considered somewhat dated. If you end up owning one of these, expect to have a fluid drip here or there and a higher level of maintenance or, as I like to refer to it, “romancing” than your modern car. That is just a truth, fellow enthusiast. Still, after our careful sorting, turning a wrench on one of these normally runs a lot less, price wise, than many contemporary automobiles on the road today. Yes, their acceleration can best be described as “funeral” and they might not outrun a dairy cow. True also, their power options, over time, might exhibit a poltergeist now and then…… but their minimal faults are just a part of them. They are supremely comfortable and offer a classic style and charm that exists only with them.
