Classic Car Overview
27,050 ORIGINAL MILES! - PERHAPS THE LOWEST MILE VINTAGE GRAND WAGONEER FOR SALE ANYWHERE...
Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this 27,075 original mile showpiece.
She is unique amongst the long line of Grand Wagoneers that have passed through our doors as she is the lowest mile Grand we have ever, ever sold. We sold her for the first time back in 2015 wearing just 24,086 original miles, In the last 7 years she has carefully covered 3,000 additional miles and remains in beautiful condition.
It is a marvel to imagine how every year in this century this Grand Wagoneer gained in value and appreciated markedly. She did that, all the while giving her owners enjoyment and the pride of possession. How many other vehicles can say that? How many other makes and models of classic cars can do that? Every indication in our hobby, no matter the economic weather, is documented extremely low mile pieces like this Grand Wagoneer will continue to appreciate in value. Low mile 40 year old convertibles are everywhere because many were just used on sunny summer weekends. Low mile 37 year old 4 wheel drive SUV's are a completely different and unique animal.
Carfax confirms the super low 27,075 miles are original, clicking up nice and slow over the decades with no accidents reported against her.
The other matter that makes this one unique amongst all Grand Wagoneers we have ever sold here is this is also the only Grand Wagoneer we have ever sold that we didn't restore. First and foremost, we are a restoration house that restores and then sells our Wagoneers. This one, frankly didn't need it when she first arrived here back in 2015 with 24,086 miles on her and she still doesn't need it in 2022 with 27,050 miles on her. She does wear a badge from a different Grand Wagoneer restoration specialist that carried out works that we believe were organized earlier in the prior decade. When and what precisely was done isn't in her document file and therefore not precisely known to us. It is of little matter as we have her here with us once again and can see first hand the quality of this very special Grand.
The Dark Honey Metallic exterior paint and the exterior wood siding remains in superb condition. We do believe that the paint and vinyl sticker were redone in her history and completed to a high standard. There are a few age and usage nicks on the exterior but nothing we feel that takes away from the overall magnificent condition of this low mile piece. The exterior wood trim appears factory original and is splendid. Four new white wall tires were just fitted, wrapping around the original factory wheels and those wheels likewise show just minor usage. We have also attached a new spare tire to the undercarriage for future needs. Same goes for the bumpers and balance of the exterior brightwork- Still presently in very strong condition with just slight usage and wear evident, reflective of her super low miles travelled.
The matching honey interior cabin is a masterpiece and is in excellent condition with again, just slight usage and ageing present. The leather seats, carpeting, even the floor mats, appear to us as are factory original. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer interior in a vintage Grand Wagoneer anywhere. The operating luxurious features by 1985 standards include the power windows, seats, mirrors, factory AM/FM stereo, cruise control and the all important air conditioning.
The 360ci v8 motor is running well, with the standard Jeep carburetor set up. She fires right up every time. The transmission and 4 wheel drive system are likewise operating as they should. Keep in mind that even though she isn't one of our fresh restorations, there has been an extensive amount of mechanical and servicing works recently organized and sorted on this Grand...She is ready for a new key holder.
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 Wagoneer 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 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. 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? That is just one example. Therefore, please understand you will do more maintenance and servicing of a vintage Grand Wagoneer than a modern piece, even one we have looked after. 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.
