She was previously owned by a power player that served as a Governor’s Chief of Staff. When that Governor decided to run for President, our Wagoneer owner served as his Campaign Chairman. Upon his friend and boss’s election to the office of President of the United States, our Jeep enthusiast was tapped and confirmed by the US Senate, to be Director of one of our nation’s most important agencies.

After our first restoration in 2016 she spent the last 6 years out on the Hamptons, as our clients go to classic vacation ride, accumulating 4,xxx miles out on the island. Given that time and miles touch everything and our wish to bring her up to the current Classic Gentleman standard, she is undergoing once again our restoration program. When you consider this Grand was restored by another party back in the 2000’s, then again by us in 2016, and once again in 2022, she has certainly received a high level of care and attention over her lifetime.

Her 95,350 original miles average out to under 3,000 miles per year and with the exception of all this Grand’s vacation use in the Hamptons, all the other miles come from the deep southern states of Florida and Texas. As they love to brag about it down there, those two states never see any snow, nor a inch of road salt which provides her with a strong frame and undercarriage. Carfax also confirms no accidents have been reported against this special Wagoneer.

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.
