Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents the former Wagonmaster restoration, 1991 Final Edition.
When we create a Wagoneer description of a new offering in our inventory the words “special’ or “unique” often appear in the write up, but a very limited number of our past acquisitions are more unique or special than this 1991 Final Edition . Most Grand Wagoner enthusiasts are familiar with the limited number produced in that final year as Chrysler bid a farewell to this iconic vehicle- 1560 units to be exact. The more important number, however, is how many low mile examples in excellent condition still survive. The answer, of course, is only a small fraction of that number meet those qualifications.
Our special Wagoneer spent her life in the south or western states of Texas, North Carolina and California where she traveled just 98,xxx miles, an average of just 3500 miles per year. Southern heritage Wagoneers ensure a strong undercarriage and this example is no exception. Add to that a power sun-roof, a very limited number are equipped with these, and one of the most sought after colors (SPINNAKER BLUE). You see why the words “special and unique” describe this Grand Wagoneer perfectly. And finally this Grand is equipped with fuel injection (a $3,000 upgrade) and again, being a former Wagonmaster restoration, she had extensive renewal works performed before Classic Gentleman’s updating. This Grand Wagoneer checks off all the boxes for the buyer in search of that “special” Final Edition. Grand Wagoneers continue to appreciate in value and industry experts agree that the ’91 Final Editions will be at the forefront of that appreciation. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this “ special and unique” Final Edition Grand Wagoner.
The Carfax confirms the low 98,xxx actual/original miles clicking up nice and slow over the decades with no accidents ever reported and all southern and western states of registration.
The exterior was just treated to a full professional color conversion into the extremely rare and beautiful Spinnaker Blue Metallic. See our website’s restoration tab which details our extensive and comprehensive color conversion procedures. The wood vinyl siding was just installed, sourced from Team Grand Wagoneer. The wood trim is original and remains in very good condition. We always try to keep the original factory wood trim, when possible, but only happens for a handful of pieces for us each year. This one is one of those.The front grill frame is new, along with the flexible chrome like trim pieces. The wheels were professionally redone and are wrapped with new whitewall tires. The remaining exterior bits, including bumpers, center wheel caps and other attached chrome pieces, whilst not new, reflect just normal aging and still present in nice condition.
The sand colored interior is the perfect match against the Spinnaker Blue outside wrapper. We installed new carpeting across the floors in both the cabin and cargo areas along with the sides of the cargo compartment and interior tailgate. Just the carpeting on the back of the seats and attached to the lower door panes, where wear doesn’t occur, are original. New custom floor mats are included to protect the carpeting. The dashboard and steering wheel have been re-coated and the seats have just been refreshed and are in beautiful condition. Above it all, a new headliner has been installed and a power sunroof is there for those summer days. The working interior appointments include power seats, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors and a modern AM/FM/CD Stereo with Bluetooth and satellite radio. The heat and air conditioning are fully serviced.
At Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, we often spend more time and monies looking after the mechanical and electrical needs of these Grands than all the cosmetic stuff you see on the outside wrapper. This special Grand is likewise in that category. This carriage has also been upgraded from the always in need of romancing carburetor with a modern fuel injection set up. Of course, the 4 wheel drive shift on the fly is ready for anything the beach or the mountains will put in front of her.
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.
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. Yes, our sales are as-is, but we actually spend more time on the mechanical and electrical bits of these Grands than we do on all the beautiful cosmetics that you see on the outside. Still, these are vintage pieces and buyers should expect to do more service and maintenance on a Grand Wagoneer compared to a modern SUV. That is just a truth, fellow enthusiast. 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.
