Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, Internationally recognized as a leading buyer and seller of low mile excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents another low mile beautiful vintage Grand, just converted at considerable expense to fuel injection!
The pricing model for Grand Wagoneers has been climbing steadily for years now and recently, accelerating. The market value for individual pieces revolve heavily around three areas. Firstly low mileage , secondly condition and thirdly, the right color. Let’s take a closer look at our ’89.
(1) We have over $25,000.00 (TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS) in recently completed invoices on this ride, That doesn’t make her brand new or perfect but it elevates her nicely to serve her next well-heeled owner.
(2) Autocheck is showing just 3 owners have had the pleasure of enjoying this 81,580 mile example and Auto Check and Carfax confirm the low actual miles with no accidents ever being reported. It works out to averaging around 3,000 miles per year. That might not be notable for a 1989 two seat convertible that was a Summer weekend ride throughout its life but for a SUV, low mile examples are much harder to find.
(3) It has been an education watching where the colors fall relative to pricing. So many flavors rising up the ladder but they all are topping out with Blue. The popular prejudice runs so heavily in favor of this color that their turn rate in our inventory is three times faster than any other shade.
Our ’89 Grand is sporting a freshly refinished in the last 100 miles Dark Baltic Blue Metallic paint. This was her original color of course and it looks fantastic. The wood siding was likewise replaced, sourced from Team Grand Wagoneer. The factory original trim board was reused and apart from a few inches on either side of the rear license plate, remains in very good condition. Even the front grill frame and grill insert are new. The wheels were refurbished at considerable expense and are in excellent shape. The white wall tires wrapping around them are brand new. The bumpers and chrome trim exhibit normal low mile usage/ageing/wear.
The cabin is finished in the popular Sand color and is in overall very good condition with just light wear evident. The seats are in excellent shape and of course are very comfortable. That overhead console temperature and compass readouts have surprised us all and are working properly. Likewise, the power seats, power door locks, (This one is also updated with remote door locks) power windows, including the rear power window (via dash switch only) are all operating as well. Same goes for the heat and air conditioning and even the cruise control. The AM/FM/CD stereo is new and has just been fitted. The exterior mirrors need to be adjusted manually as finding a reliable source for working power mirror switches has proved to be our Dunkirk.
This one has a very special updated option, having just been converted to fuel injection! No more pumping the gas pedal and romancing the carburetor to get this one started. The fuel injection conversion cost for parts and labor alone was close to $4,000.00. The engine, transmission and the 4 wheel High and Low settings have all been serviced and are performing just as they should. We have a dozen full pages of precisely detailed garage service invoices covering all the mechanical and electrical works that were organized and sorted. They are available to interested parties, upon request. We don’t spend monies on the appearances of engine bays and undercarriages as most all of our buyers are planning on driving and enjoying these Grands regularly. Normal wear, aging and surface rust will be present but of course new floor pans are installed, if needed and all classics will pass stringent New York State inspection guidelines. That undercarriage has a new spare tire in place in case of any emergency need.
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, serviced from head to tail 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. Our average service bills per unit range from $4000 to $12,000 and these costs do not include cosmetic restoration to the exterior/interior. A far reach from needing nothing. 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 every 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.
