Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this low 106,450 original mile 1989 Grand Wagoneer. .Until our purchase, her entire registered life was deep in the state of Georgia. She has never seen any winter road salt ever, not even any snow ever, (But snow doesn’t hurt a Grand anyway. it is the corrosive road salt). Since she hasn’t been exposed to road salt, her frame and undercarriage are solid and making her worthy of the investment required in a Classic Gentleman restoration. There is nothing more important for a vintage Grand Wagoneer than it comes from the right areas of the country that have kept their frames and undercarriages out of the winter road salt. Frankly for us, it is the difference between a restoration candidate or a parts car.
She will be fitted with a newly re-manufactured original stock spec V8 engine, upgraded with modern fuel injection, along with the regular host of Classic Gentleman upgrades.
Carfax confirms the lifetime Georgia registration, no accidents reported and the low 106,450 miles as original and true. (That works out to just a little more than 3,000 miles per year….).
We have scheduled this ’89 to be finished in the popular and seen next to never gorgeous Spinnaker Blue Metallic paint finish but there is still time for the next owner to pick whatever color they would like. Have a look at the restoration page on our website to see how considerable our full color conversion process is. Here is just one specific, we even paint the metal floors under the new floor carpeting the new color.
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.
