Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this stunning 1985 Hunter Green showpiece, with just 78,025 actual miles. (That averages out to a remarkable 2,400 miles per year)
The choice of color is quite often the most important factor for many of our buyers when selecting that Wagoneer they have always dreamed of. The top requests is by far the”ever illusive Hunter Green.” Search the web and they are always in very limited supply, especially low-mile excellent condition examples. With that in mind we professionally converted this original ho hum off white color to the #1 sought after color in the Grand Wagoneer world, Hunter Green. That color conversion was extensive. We began by stripping off the old paint and removing the original wood trim and wood siding. The new Hunter Green finish was applied to the exterior sheet metal along with the engine bay and door jams. Inside the Wagoneer’s cabin we painted all the required to match metal surface as well. How well? We went so far as to even painting the metal cabin floor Hunter Green before it was covered with new carpeting.
The Carfax and Autocheck of this restored piece confirm the low 78,025 miles listed are original, showing the miles ticking up slowly over the years (we even have a current Actual Mile Title) and no accidents ever reported. Even better, she has, until our purchase, always been a 100% Nevada Grand Wagoneer. Great climate out there with no road salt used……ever. Because of that, without question this Grand’s undercarriage is in very strong condition.
The just applied Hunter Green paint is striking and is the highlight of this ’85. We also updated the front end of her with the preferred later model front grill frame and insert, headlamp dishes and finished up with installing a vintage hood ornament. The wood siding and wood trim are brand new, sourced from Team Grand Wagoneer. A previous owner replaced the tailgate glass at some point and we went ahead and finished the job by replacing not just the front windshield but likewise all the side glass on the Grand Wagoneer. Just the sunroof glass is original with normal ageing. The new whitewall tires have been freshly mounted and wrap around beautifully refinished factory wheels. The balance of exterior chrome and aluminum pieces, including the bumpers, wheel caps, door handles, side mirrors and the luggage rack, while not new still present in beautiful condition with only low mile usage and aging present.
The honey leather interior continues this excellent classic Grand’s presentation. The cabin floor, along with the cargo area floor, sides and interior tailgate areas, all are sporting new carpet. Above it all, the headliner is new. The leather areas of the seats were redyed and the fabric inserts in the seats are original with just light wear/spotting evident. All the seat belts in the Grand are spanking new. The working interior options include power windows (tailgate window operates from dash switch only), power door locks, power seats and the outside power mirrors. Let us not forget the all important and very rare SUNROOF, opening and closing just as it should. The factory cruise control is the only non working feature. It was developed by some madman 40 years ago that even when it did work, had a get out your driver’s license “floating 10 mph accuracy range”. In brief, you wouldn’t use it anyway. The climate controlling heat and air conditioning systems are fully serviced and ready to go. A new AM/FM/CD player has also just been installed.
A good deal of money has also been spent looking after the engine/transmission and electricals. They all been inspected and works sorted, where deemed needed. That includes both the 4 wheel High and 4 wheel Low settings.

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 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. 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 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. 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.
