Under Restoration- Estimated completion date second quarter 2022 – Reserve Now!
Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this returning 1989 Classic Gentleman alumni with just 95,350 miles. She is scheduled to go through our extensive color conversion process into the red hot popular and next to never available Hunter Green Metallic but there is still time to select your choice of exterior colors. (Hunter Green as scheduled or, Spinnaker Blue, Colorado Red, White, Grey, Baltic Blue and more.)
She was previously owned by a power player that served as a Governor’s Chief of Staff. When that Governor decided to run for President, our Wagoneer owner served as his Campaign Chairman. Upon his friend and boss’s election to the office of President of the United States, our Jeep enthusiast was tapped and confirmed by the US Senate, to be Director of one of our nation’s most important agencies.
After our first restoration in 2016 she spent the last 6 years out on the Hamptons, as our clients go to classic vacation ride, accumulating 4,xxx miles out on the island. Given that time and miles touch everything and our wish to bring her up to the current Classic Gentleman standard, she is undergoing once again our restoration program. When you consider this Grand was restored by another party back in the 2000’s, then again by us in 2016, and once again in 2022, she has certainly received a high level of care and attention over her lifetime.
Her 95,350 original miles average out to under 3,000 miles per year and with the exception of all this Grand’s vacation use in the Hamptons, all the other miles come from the deep southern states of Florida and Texas. As they love to brag about it down there, those two states never see any snow, nor a inch of road salt which provides her with a strong frame and undercarriage. Carfax also confirms no accidents have been reported against this special Wagoneer.
