Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this inaugural 1984 year one owner Colorado Red knockout.

If you are a Grand Wagoneer enthusiast you are undoubtedly alive to the fact of the limited production run of these iconic vehicles. The Grand Wagoneer was only produced for eight years from 1984 to 1991. The full-size Jeep line up was consolidated in 1984- the fully loaded and new namesake that would take it to the end of the line- the Grand Wagoneer was born.

We are always thrilled when we acquire a FIRST YEAR EDITION , especially one with such a stellar past. You are looking at a ONE OWNER Grand Wagoneer for its entire 37 year history- up until our purchase. This is the first and only single owner 1984 Grand Wagoneer to ever grace our extensive inventory. With 111,850 actual miles this Grand travelled on average just 3000 miles per year and all those miles were in sunny California. She has never been exposed to harsh winter road conditions and the frame and undercarriage reflect that heritage of the dry southwest, and single ownership speaks to the loving care she received over those 37 years. We are color converting this Grand to Colorado Red-to make her even more unique. Colorado Red Wagoneers are extremely difficult to acquire and we receive many inquiries through the year for this highly prized color. Here is the opportunity to purchase a single owner 1984 Grand Wagoneer (with those nostalgic round dashboard gauges) with a lifetime spent in the sunny southern California and finished in that rarely seen Colorado Red. This Grand Wagoneer is guaranteed to make an impression as she is cutting a dash from the beach to the mountains.

The Carfax report confirms that until our purchase she was a one owner, lifelong registered southern California Wagoneer and the low miles are original with no accidents reported against her.

Why buy from a Grand Wagoneer specialist?

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 and works 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. Remember the average age of these vehicles is over thirty years old and even with loving care many the cosmetics and mechanical parts have aged and worn accordingly. When a Classic Gentleman Grand Wagoneer arrives at your home, it is a special occasion and the Grand will be in beautiful condition. Yes, our sales are as-is, but as you will see from our detailed document files that your Grand has been looked after carefully. 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.

Still, and here is the most honest paragraph you have perhaps ever seen from a restoration house/dealer, in some ways these Jeeps were terrible even when they were new. Sometimes we wonder if automotive engineering was more of a hobby with Jeep executives. For example, a Grand Wagoneer was the very last vehicle produced in America still fitted with a carburetor. The factory installing an ancient artifact like a carburetor to these Grands is a perfect example of Wagoneers being more primitive than other vehicles of the same model years. Now we automatically upgrade and modernize each of our Grands with MODERN FUEL INJECTION, eliminating the troublesome carburetor and therefore also eliminating the next owner having to constantly hector his local Jeep service advisor to adjust the carburetor. But, in most every other way, we can’t change the method these were built by the factory. In many respects the manufacturer used outdated technology and manufacturing methods and as a restorer, we will always be compromised by that circumstance. Did you know you can remove the front grill from a final year 1991 Grand Wagoneer and behind it still see the round cut out holes for the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer headlights? Those are just two examples above to illuminate the discussion. Therefore, please understand you will do more maintenance and servicing of a vintage Grand Wagoneer than a modern piece, even one we have restored. That is just a truth, fellow enthusiast. If you don’t have the un-excitability and tolerance for that, then let us say to you candidly, don’t buy one. But let us also remind you that it is indeed that old school style and looks of a Grand Wagoneer that have made them so ever popular today.

Be sure to have a look at our website’s recommendation page where you can see first hand the positive experiences of a worldwide assortment of named buyers.
