Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Wagoneers, presents this 1987 elegant “Champagne Edition” Grand Wagoneer.
The camera can capture much of the detail of a refinished Wagoneer, but in some cases the completed product is more elegant than even the images can portray. That is the case with this beautiful 1987 “Champagne Edition”- she is truly gorgeous. A true “show stopper” that draws an admiring crowd full of typical “Wagoneer questions” and complements galore- a testament to her stunning appearance. The Champagne finish was applied to the Grand Wagoneer for only four years of it’s production run and in limited numbers compared to the more common colors. Excellent low – mile examples are difficult to locate and this is the single Champagne offering in our extensive inventory-ever. Even the recently refinished wheels, with the matching gold insert trim. reflect the stunning detail that makes this Wagoneer sparkle. We invested over TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS ($20,000) on the restoration on this Grand to elevate her to Classic Gentleman status, money well spent on a stunning classic that any enthusiast would be proud to call his own. At the beach or at the country club, or just cruising around town- you will get the “oohs” and “aahs” with this Champagne Edition.
This handsome example has been enjoyed by the same owner for the last 25 years. A careful caretaker who kept everything from the original window sticker and owner’s manuals down to state inspection invoices reaching far back into the prior decade. Those state inspection receipts detail the low 95,899 original miles rising slowly over the years. All in all, this one averaged just over 3,000 miles per year. Carfax and Autocheck likewise confirm no accidents ever reported.
We have reapplied the Champagne Metallic Exterior paint, and it is lovely. We also completely removed the factory installed wood trim and wood siding and replaced both with new trim and siding, sourced from Team Grand Wagoneer. From the new front bumper and front grill frame, to the paint and the wood, along with newly refinished color matched wheels wrapped in new whitewall tires, a gorgeous outside wrapper. Any remaining exterior chrome bits will exhibit just light ageing.
The Grand’s cabin is as sharp as the exterior. The tan leather seats are in beautiful shape and the entire floor carpeting, from the cargo area thru the seating cabin, is all new. Same goes for the headliner. The air conditioning, heat, AM/FM/CD stereo, all power windows, power seats, power door locks all the way down to the lighted vanity mirror, are all functioning properly. Just the terribly designed by some Muppet cruise control and the outside power mirrors are not operating. (They can be adjusted manually). Finding replacement parts for those side mirrors have proved to be our Dunkirk.
The V8 360ci 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. Those completed invoices are available to interested parties, upon request. Just look at that beautiful engine bay! We don’t spend monies on the appearances of the 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 but of course new floor pans are installed, if needed and all classics will pass stringent New York State inspection guidelines.
Why buy from a Grand Wagoneer specialist? For us the answer is simple- our entire focus is on Grand Wagoneers and we know these unique vehicles inside and out. When you purchase a Classic Gentleman Wagoneer it has been thoroughly inspected, serviced from head to tail and all necessary work completed by professional mechanics, some with over forty years of Wagaoneer experience. We purchase fine example Jeeps from a variety of sources including other dealers and private parties. We are often told by the seller, “My Jeep is excellent and needs nothing” however, being in this profession, we know to expect and plan for a great deal of sorting. Our average service bills per unit range from $4000 to $12,000 and these costs do not include cosmetic restoration to the exterior/interior. A far reach from needing nothing. Remember the average age of these vehicles is thirty years more or less, and even with loving care many mechanical parts have aged and worn accordingly. Purchase a Wagoneer from a source other than a specialist and odds are that you may experience servicing and repair costs that may dampen your joy and enthusiasm for that Wagoneer that you always wanted. You may only own one of these in your lifetime, while we buy, fully sort and sell dozens and dozens every year. That is a lot of practice and when a Classic Gentleman Grand Wagoneer arrives at your home, it is a special occasion. It will be in beautiful condition and ready to drive and enjoy. Yes, our sales are as-is, but as you will see from our detailed service invoices, she has been looked after from nose to tail. Our goal is to see that the joy and enthusiasm of Grand Wagoneer ownership begins immediately with your purchase and that it will be there for years to come.
