Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this stunning 1989 Spinnaker Blue Grand Wagoneer with only 95,783 original miles.
She is one of our professional color conversions into the ever popular and never seen Spinnaker Blue Metallic. This special color was offered in 1991 by Grand Wagoneer and in that year, just 25 were painted this lovely medium flavor of blue. Like our Hunter Green color conversions, chances are you may never come across another Spinnaker Blue Grand Wagoneer. The completion of a full professional color conversion nearly doubles the average time it takes to apply new paint and wood to a Grand from four weeks to nearly eight. Time consuming elements beyond the normal include; removing of the doors and hood and stripping away the old faux wood and trim, removing the windshield, painting all interior metal surfaces that were required by the factory to match the exterior, and we even remove the old floor carpeting and paint the floor metal to match the new chosen color. We do not remove the engine but we do paint all accessible engine bay areas.
The just applied paint of course is not the only beautiful part of our presentation here. We installed new wood siding and trim, new windshield along with a new grill frame, plus refinished wheels and fresh whitewall tires. New window wipes were installed along with replacement of exterior chrome flexible pieces.We even found a NOS rear bumper that was fresh out of the box. (Given we don’t know of anyone making replacement bumpers for these Grands, to find a new in the box is like Christmas morning for a restorer such as ourselves. The center wheel caps, front bumper and remaining exterior chrome pieces, whilst not new, remain in very good condition.
The sand leather interior is excellent, as you can see. All new floor carpeting has just been installed, including the cabin space and the cargo area. Custom Grand Wagoneer floor mats are included to protect your new carpeting. The leather portion of the seats have been freshly re-coated, along with the dashboard and steering wheel. To top the interior off, a new headliner has also just been fitted. The cabin is loaded with options and they include, cruise control, power seats, power windows, power mirrors, power door locks, along with the all important air conditioning, right down to the new AM/FM/CD stereo.
A PROFESSIONALLY RE-MANUFACTURED 360ci V8 FACTORY STOCK SPEC ENGINE, WITH FUEL INJECTION has just been installed to power this beauty for decades to come. It is an unusual occurrence for the rugged factory installed engines not to reach 200,000 miles or more but on occasion, a low mile engine does need to be replaced and when that is needed, the best way to go is a professionally re-manufactured factory spec replacement motor. That is of course, what was done here. Along with a long host of other mechanical and electrical sorting, the undercarriage also displays new rear leaf springs, shocks, exhaust and on and on.,
Until our purchase, this 95,783 original mile Grand lived almost her entire life in the mild winter state of Kansas, (apart from 2 months in Nebraska), and spent her last years in North Carolina. Carfax and Autocheck confirm the low miles and no accidents reported against this vintage Wagoneer.
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.
