Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this handsome Charcoal Gray Metallic carriage, updated with fuel injection.
This piece has led a charmed life with just one very long term owner for all but the last two years. She was purchased new in the southern state of Georgia and eventually was shipped to the owner’s vacation home in Telluride, Colorado. She has never seen a penny of road salt and down to that happy circumstance, has a strong frame underneath her and straight sheet metal wrapped around her. Carfax and Autocheck confirm the states of registration, no accidents ever reported and the low miles of 88,774 are original.
The Charcoal Gray Metallic is a professional color conversion we just commissioned and looks brilliant. We stripped away the old exterior black finish and then the exterior metal surfaces were redone in the Charcoal Gray along with the engine bay, all the interior door jams and all the exposed required to match interior metal surfaces. The wood trim is new of course, along with the wood siding. The wheels, wheel caps and remaining exterior chrome and aluminum bits whilst not new are still in very good condition and suit the Grand well. The white wall tires are new, just fitted, balanced and aligned.
The cordovan interior is excellent condition as this shade wears well over time. We chose the Charcoal Gray Metallic exterior specifically because it looks so smart against the Cordovan interior. The leather portion of the seats have been resurfaced and the balance of the cabin, from the carpeting to the headliner, remain in as lovely a condition as the images portray. The cabin is loaded with options including power seats, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, cruise control, AM/FM/CD player and the all important air conditioning. A curious artifact of the Chrysler purchase of Jeep in the later 80’s is the overhead console that Chrysler lifted out of their minivans. They look great, the overhead dome lights inside them operate just fine and the digital readout for exterior temperature and compass are both working”ish” -at the moment that is but the digital readout on these is notorious for going into full eclipse at regular and recurring intervals. In brief, all the options and features are working just as designed.
This Grand has the significant upgrade of fuel injection fitted to her, replacing the factory stock carburetor. That is a $3,000.00 parts and labor improvement alone. No more pumping the gas pedal needed to fire up the ignition. The engine, transmission and electricals have all been inspected and works sorted, where deemed needed. Yes, our sales are all as is but we look after the bits you can’t see, just as much as the cosmetic appearance. The 4 wheel High and Low settings are both performing correctly… a benefit of the transfer case being rebuilt.
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.
