By 1990 Chrysler had determined that the “final days “ of the Grand Wagoneer had arrived and that was reflected in the reduced production of only 6449 units for that year. (Previous years had seen production numbers above 20,000 units). Jeep enthusiasts recognize the added value in these “final series “ models that included the ’89 & ‘91 as well. Seven paint colors were applied in 1990 but , of course, the hand’s down favorite was and is the Dark Baltic Blue Metallic. Search our just sold inventory – with approximately sixty Grand Wagoneers passing in and out of our facilities in the last year and you will find only four 1990’s and only one other in that illusive blue. Not as scarce as hen’s teeth , but search the internet and see how many you can find –especially in this condition- hen’s teeth are looking pretty promising. Grand Wagoneers have enjoyed steady price appreciation over the past ten years and experts look for that trend to continue. These late series models will continue to lead the way because of their limited numbers and ever increasing demand.
This particular ’90 example, up until our purchase, has spent her entire life in snow free South Carolina. Everything about her displays a very gentle Southern upbringing. That Dark Baltic Blue paint was recently refinished by the previous owner and remains in very good condition. We just installed the wood siding, sourced from Team Grand Wagoneer, and it looks wonderful against the Dark Baltic Blue Metallic. The Grand retains the original wood trim which is still in beautiful condition. The wheels and bumpers are original and exhibit just normal low mile wear and aging. The classic whitewall tires are brand spanking new. With just 85,902 original miles (confirmed by Carfax along with no accidents ever reported) this one is worthy of the Classic Gentleman moniker.
The sumptuous (by 1990 SUV standards) cabin is as sharp as the rest of the Wagoneer. The plush sand leather seats, carpeting and door panels, from the custom fitted Grand Wagoneer floor mats all the way up to the headliner, a top shelf presentation. The options are all spinning as they should including power seats, power windows (rear window operates via dash mounted switch only), power mirrors, power door locks, cruise control, AM/FM/CD stereo and of course the all important air conditioning. Just the compass/temp reading on the overhead console isn’t functioning.
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 precisely detailed garage service invoices covering all the mechanical and electrical works that were organized and sorted by us. Additionally we have a lengthy list of replaced items done within the last year by the previous owner. 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.
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 $9000 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 nearly 60 per 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.
