Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents the lowest original mile Grand Wagoneer in our inventory. (And one of the lowest mile Grands we have ever sold)
How low are the miles?......This most special 1988 Wagoneer has just 32,300 original miles ! That works out to average only 1,000 miles per year. (Incredible). The world is full of 30 year old convertibles with 30,000 miles because many of those were summer weekend toys. A low mile SUV is an entirely different unicorn as most original owners of these used them as everyday drivers or worse, mounted snow plows to the front and pulled travel trailers from the rear. If you are in the market for a exceptional low mileage collectible Wagoneer, this will probably be the lowest mile example we will have for years.. Carfax confirms that the miles are original and no accidents have ever been reported against our '88.
For all you market watchers, Barrett-Jackson 2020 Scottsdale auction sold a one year newer but otherwise nearly identical model with just 8000 original miles for $110,000.00 (including buyer's fee). Ours is cosmetically restored with just 24,000 miles more for 1/2 the price...... This is the ideal piece for the low mile buyer with an eye for potential market appreciation.
She was always a southern Grand until our first purchase, never seeing one ounce of road salt. We originally bought her back in 2015 and she was quickly sold to a gentleman in Michigan. She was kept at his summer lodge in the upper peninsula, with over a mile of lakefront property on the estate, This Grand has always lived a charmed life. Our past client decided to rotate her out of his collection and we enthusiastically purchased her back.
Upon re-entering our inventory, she was treated to the same level of restoration as our other pieces. The exterior white paint has just been reapplied by our team and is lovely. We also removed the old wood trim and wood siding and the installation of new trim and wood siding from Team Grand Wagoneer. A white finished Wagoneer is one of the best back drops against wood siding. Because this is such an exceptionally low mile Grand, we were able to keep the original wheels, front grill, bumpers and exterior chrome pieces. They are not new but do reflect just low mile - salt free usage and remain in very good condition.
This cordovan interior likewise tells the story of how handsome a true 1,000 mile per year collectible Wagoneer can look. That 1988 shag carpeting is an artifact of a long gone era. The "Brady Bunch" type carpeting still presents in very good condition and we can't bring ourselves to replace it. The new carpet that is being manufactured today can match the original color but not the deep shag texture. Because this Grand has received such little exercising over three plus decades, the leather seats themselves are in exceptional shape....Just as the images portray. All the Jeeps working bits are spinning correctly including... power windows, power door locks, power seats, power outside mirrors, power rear window via dashboard switch only, air conditioning and heat, and a modern AM/FM/CD stereo. And incredibly, even the cruise control is in running order.
The engine, transmission, along with the 4 wheel drive system, were all carefully looked over by her past owner along with our own review and she is ready go to her next loving home.
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.
You may only own one of these in your lifetime, while we buy, fully sort and sell an abundant number of Wagoneers year after year. That is a lot of practice and when a Classic Gentleman Grand Wagoneer arrives at your home, it is a special occasion. It will be in beautiful condition and ready to drive and enjoy. Yes, our sales are as-is, but as you can see, we look after our pieces from nose to tail. 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.
