“Sale Pending” – Currently under restoration with an estimated completion late December!
Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this very special 1988 Dark Baltic Blue Metallic collector’s piece. She is in our “Top Twenty” lowest original mile Grand Wagoneers with just 44,100 miles being accumulated . (Remarkably, that is under 1,500 miles per year, on average).
The Carfax confirms the super low miles clicking up nice and slow over the decades with no accidents ever reported.This Grand of course has a great undercarriage and frame, down to the fact that until our purchase, she was always registered in the deep bit of southern California…..Never seen a piece of corrosive road salt or even snow, for that matter.
The exterior will be refinished in the factory original Dark Baltic Blue Metallic flavor. Additionally, new exterior wood trim will be fitted along with replacing the original wood sticker. The front grill frame is original, along with the bumpers and other exterior chrome pieces. These items are no longer being manufactured and available new, but they only exhibit low southern California usage and as such, still present nicely. The wheels will be professionally redone and wrapped with new whitewall tires.
The Tan colored interior is the perfect match against the Baltic Blue outside wrapper. We will be installing new carpeting across the floors in both the cabin and cargo areas along with the sides of the cargo compartment. Just the carpeting on the back of the seats and attached to the lower door panes, where wear doesn’t occur, are original. New custom floor mats will also be included to protect the fresh carpet. The leather portion of the seats will be recoated, along with the dashboard and steering wheel. Above it all, a new headliner will be installed. The interior appointments include power seats, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors and a a Bluetooth capable stereo. Air conditioning of course is fully serviced.
At Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, we often spend more time and monies looking after the mechanical and electrical needs of these Grands than all the cosmetic stuff you see on the outside wrapper. This special Grand is likewise in that category. This carriage has also been upgraded from the always in need of romancing carburetor with a modern fuel injection set up. The 4 wheel drive (both high and low) is ready for anything the beach or the mountains will put in front of her. Our buyers receive a document file on their purchase, which lists in detail the highlights of the mechanical works performed.
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. Yes, our sales are as-is, but we actually spend more time on the mechanical and electrical bits of these Grands than we do on all the beautiful cosmetics that you see on the outside. Still, these are vintage pieces and buyers should expect to do more service and maintenance on a Grand Wagoneer compared to a modern SUV. That is just a truth, fellow enthusiast. 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.
