I am selling my beautiful 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer because the engine is shot (short story, I ran it with way too little oil...) and I don’t have the skill to replace it. I brought it to a local Vintage shop that has worked on GW’s, and they confirmed all it needs is a new long block engine. I purchased it 3 years ago from Oklahoma and it was a great vehicle for me the entire time. Almost everything else on the Jeep is in great condition, so a perfect project for the right person.
I plan to list it on Craigslist also, but I thought I would give first dibs to this community, and also help me figure out a fair price range for this - I am hoping for $10K. What other details would you want?
Exterior: beautiful black (believe original color) paint - two tiny chips on hood the size of a dime each. Woodgrain and vinyl are Team Grand Wagoneer replica kits installed 3 years ago. Chrome is in great condition. No rust. NO RUST. I do not believe any rust has ever been repaired. The undercarriage is also very clean and has very few rust spots; frame is almost perfect. The leaf springs are a bit rusted but that’s to be expected.
Interior: original dash. Carpet, interior ceiling fabric, and seat upholstery have been replaced – extremely close match to original! A couple sections of seat upholstery were left as original – you can see slight wear. Radio has never worked for me but I’ve not really worked on it – somebody with electrical experience might be able to revive it.
Windows/doors: all are functional. Back tailgate glass can be a little finicky but it does go up and down. Tailgate opens and closes as it should. All doors, handles and locks work. All glass is pristine.
Mechanicals: Engine is not functional, as I mentioned. I had carb rebuilt 2 years ago. New gas shocks 3 years ago. Fuel tank removed and lines cleared 3 years ago. All gauges work except fuel indicator.
Tires/wheels: good condition.
It’s a really beautiful vehicle that is ready for its next adventure. Thanks for looking!
