Definitely not a 4.2l in that '82. I wonder what the reserve is? I hope the seller doesn't believe that particular GW is worth $10,000....
I've seen many Wagoneers sell at Copart because it's a donated vehicle I would guess somewhere around $1,000, possibly as low as $600 or as high as $1200, I wouldn't think any higher especially given that it comes with an affidavit in lieu of title. Of course that's just a guess, you never know really. affidavit in lieu of title is actually a good thing because they have some very odd rules for bidding on cars depending on what kind of title it has, what kind of membersgip you have and what kind of license you have or don't have. I have the most basic membership and am allowed to bid up to $1,000 on anything except things with a clear title. If I want to bid on a clear title I have to go through a broker or prove I have a dealers license. It lets me bid on the wagoneer because of that affidavit but the affidavit is the paperwork that would get me a clear title if I did buy it.
If you are thinking about that one it would be a good idea to plan in advance and talk to them about it, maybe go look at it. You never know what's actually wrong with it. Cold be nothing at all but could be something big. I donated a Mustang parts car once that they listed as runs and drives, which was technically true but even though it did run and drive it did it with no oil because a rod was sticking out the bottom of the oil pan.
Oh and from the vehicle report they let me look at it has been registered in Wa at least since '97. It looks like the last time it was registered was 09/13/2010 in LILLIWAUP, WA but a duplicate title was issued on 10/29/2015. There is some sort of accident record on 08/14/2003 "COLLISION WITH ANOTHER VEHICLE(Case #:1257404)" but other than a record of corrected title there is nothing else.
