The Jeep Wagoneer is a luxury 4x4 produced and marketed under Jeep under successive automakers from 1962 to 1991. Described when it was introduced as a station wagon body style, the innovative concept by industrial designer Brooks Stevens over time pioneered the luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV). Initially briefly available with the choice of rigid or independent front suspension, and optional rear-wheel drive only, the 4WD Wagoneer stayed in production for 29 model years (1963 1991) with an almost unchanged body structure, making it the third longest-produced single generation car in U.S. automotive history. 1987 1991 Chrysler bought out American Motors Corporation on 2 March 1987. At the time AMC was already working on designing a replacement for the antiquated SJ platform. Chrysler had other priorities, and although the Jeep J-Series pickups that shared the SJ platform and directly competed with Chryslers Dodge Ram pickups were discontinued in 1988, Chrysler left the Grand Wagoneer largely untouched over its first few years overseeing Jeep production, and even continued to build the model with the carbureted AMC V8 instead of its own (arguably, more modern) fuel-injected V8. Year-to-year changes were minimal. At the time of Chryslers purchase, customer demand for the Grand Wagoneer continued to be steady, and it was a very profitable model generating approximately five to six thousand dollars on each unit. The 1989 1991 model years are considered the best of the breed due to a number of upgrades. These include upgraded wood siding and modernized aluminum alloy wheels that lost their gold-colored inlays in favor of gunmetal grey metallic. Chrysler also introduced an electrocoat primer for better rust proofing and all exterior colors were now applied in a two-stage base-clearcoat system. In 1988, Jeeps first full year under Chrysler, 14,117 Grand Wagoneers were produced. Many improvements were made for the 1989 1991 model year series, including a quality replacement for the earlier, leak-prone air conditioning compressor, the addition of the visually identifiable rear wiper/washer assembly, as well as a general improvement in fit and finish. An interior overhead console, taken from Chryslers popular minivans, was also added. This functional console featured much brighter map lights, an outside temperature sensor and compass, a storage compartment for sunglasses as well as an infrared remote-controlled key-less entry system. The last three model years also featured several new exterior paint colors and the tan interior color was replaced with a lighter color that Jeep called sand. The new exterior colors included a hunter green metallic that was only available in the 1991 model year and is the paint color of the 1991 Grand Wagoneer in the Chrysler museum, as well as the color of the very last Grand Wagoneer ever made. 1989 JEEP GRAND WAGONEER CLEAN CARFAX REPORT 81,988 ORIGINAL MILES CLEAN TITLE IN HAND BURGUNDY EXTERIOR WITH FAUX-WOODGRAIN PANELING OVER A CORDOVAN LEATHER AND CLOTH INTERIOR 360CI V8 ENGINE 3 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION DUAL-RANGE TRANSFER CASE WITH A VISCOUS COUPLING POWER-ASSISTED BRAKES (FRONT DISCS AND REAR DRUMS) EQUIPPED WITH: 15 MULTI-SPOKE ALLOY WHEELS WITH 235/75 MICHELIN DEFENDER TIRES, BRIGHT-FINISHED ROOF RACK, POWER-RETRACTABLE REAR WINDOW, POWER-ADJUSTABLE FRONT SEATS, CRUISE CONTROL, FAUX-WOODGRAIN TRIM, FOG LIGHTS AND MUD FLAPS, ELECTRIC WINDOWS, AIR CONDITIONING, POWER-ADJUSTABLE FRONT SEATS, FOLDING CENTER ARMREST, CRUISE CONTROL, TILT STEERING WHEEL, AND A SONY CD STEREO WITH BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY RECENT WORK HAS INCLUDED REBUILDING THE CARBURETOR, SUSPENSION COMPONENTS, BATTERY, FLUIDS, REFURBISHING THE WHEELS AND REPLACING THE TIRES, LEAF SPRINGS, INSTALLING BILSTEIN SHOCKS, TUNEUP, REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION COOLER, STUDS, SEALS, AND AIR FILTERS THE CABIN FEATURES CORDOVAN LEATHER AND CLOTH UPHOLSTERY AS WELL AS A COLOR-COORDINATED DASHBOARD, CARPETS, AND DOOR PANELS THIS GRAND WAGONEER IS OFFERED WITH OWNERS AND REPAIR MANUALS RUNS, DRIVES AND LOOKS GREAT HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THIS GREAT CLASSIC!
