Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman , internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile excellent condition Grand Wagoneers presents this exceptionally handsome 49,xxx LOW MILE 1986 Spinnaker Blue Metallic Grand Wagoneer.
The Grand Wagoneer nameplate arrived on the automotive scene in 1984 and sadly departed from it’s short production run in 1991. Mechanical and cosmetic changes came and went thru out those years and 1986 has been characterized as a significant model change year. Highlights of those changes include a redesigned instrument panel, improved climate control, refigured steering column with new wiper/washer controls, a new steering wheel, a redesigned front grill and headlight treatment, plus the ICONIC STAND UP JEEP hood ornament. Low mile examples, as with all production years, are more and more difficult to acquire and going forward those numbers will continue to diminish. This amazing Grand Wagoneer is the second lowest mileage 1986 ever to grace our inventory- just 49,xxx miles traveled over it’s 34 year history- that’s an incredibly low average of 1450 miles per year. Along with the Wagoneer we received many documents that detail it’s service history and reaffirm the accuracy of the low mileage. Additionally we have the original bill of sale and the rarely saved original factory “ window sticker”.
Top it all off with a life spent in an excellent Southern climate. This Grand Wagoneer made it’s home in just two locations – Murfreesboro, North Carolina (from 1986 to 2018) and Virginia Beach, Virginia (from 2018 to 2020.) The first 32 years were single family ownership with the Grand passing thru an estate to a descendant , so this Grand Wagoneer had just two homes before our acquisition . A lifetime spent in Eastern North Carolina and Virginia insures that this fine example was never exposed to harsh winter road conditions. Adding to it’s luster our amazing Grand will be professionally color converted in the highly desired Spinnaker Blue Metallic – a rare color that is a favorite among many of today’s Grand Wagoneer enthusiasts . This Grand Wagoneer checks off all the correct boxes- very low documented mileage, limited ownership, great southern heritage, and the Spinnaker Blue exterior with the rich honey interior. The low mileage will enable the next owner to enjoy this Wagoneer for many years and still be in the low miles category if they decide to pass it on to that next owner. We were thrilled to acquire this Grand Wagoneer and we know from experience that the next owner will cherish it as well.
Carfax confirms the low 49,xxx miles are original, no accidents have ever been reported against this Wagoneer and lifetime registration (until our purchase) in southern states, presenting a solid frame and undercarriage.
Some highlights of our restoration works include:
- Full professional color conversion in Spinnaker Blue Metallic (See our restoration link)
- New Wood Trim

Our mechanical & electrical sorting is as comprehensive as our cosmetic works. Indeed, we spend as much time and efforts on the engine, transmission and electrical components of our Wagoneers as we do all the exterior/interior cosmetic components. This Final Edition is also equipped with MODERN FUEL INJECTION, eliminating the troublesome carburetor. This is an expensive and multiple parts upgrade that will increase your Grand’s reliability greatly.
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. 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.
