Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile, excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents this low mile Spinnaker Blue 1991 Final Edition.
The Jeep Wagoneer entered the automotive world in 1963 and to the dismay of Jeep enthusiasts said farewell in 1991. The Grand Wagoneer nameplate arrived in 1984 and would be the flag ship model to the end of production in 1991. Wikipedia details only 1560 Grand Wagoneers rolled off the Toledo assembly line in 1991 and whilst other sources quote slightly higher final year production numbers, still 1991 is the lowest production year . The 29 year production run featured a variety of color choices – some very appealing finishes- others not finding favor with Wagoneer buyers. In addition to the Hunter Green Metallic finish introduced in 1991 another unique color was introduced – SPINNAKER BLUE METALLIC. Jeep had produced over the years some lighter blue finishes and other could be “ special ordered” but as a production color Spinnaker Blue metallic appears only in 1991 and Jeep researchers contend that less than 30 were produced. As you can imagine locating an original 1991 Spinnaker Blue Metallic Grand Wagoneer is nearly impossible. Understanding the desire by collectors to own this ultra rare Wagoneer we are color converting this excellent condition, low mile 1991 Grand Wagoneer to Spinnaker Blue. Look at our color conversion page to view the extensive work we undertake to apply the new color to interior an exterior surfaces. An extensive process and the finished product is outstanding. If you have always had the desire to own a ’91 Spinnaker- here’s your opportunity.
Carfax confirms the low 88,500 miles as original, clicking up nice and slow over the years, with most of those miles from the deep south state of Florida and the remainder out west.
