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 factory original color Hunter Green Metallic 1991 Final Edition..
We are currently restoring the largest selection of 1991 Final Edition Grand Wagoneers in the country and just added to our collection is this remarkable find. This amazing ’91 Hunter Green Metallic Wagoneer is the second lowest mileage Final Edition ever in our extensive inventory and by far our lowest mile 1991 Hunter Green Wagoneer with only 56,200 original miles. That translates to just over 1800 miles per year driven over its 31 year history. We need not remind Wagoneer enthusiasts that 1991 was the final year for the Wagoneer with the lowest production numbers of any model year ever. Add to that the ultra rare one year only offered Hunter Green and this is investment grade. A truly rare vehicle in the annals of American automotive history.
In addition to the low mileage this Grand was a single family Wagoneer passed from its original owner to his favorite niece. Her uncle was a Wagoneer enthusiast -that’s all he drove- and he owned many during his lifetime. His last Wagoneer purchase came in 1991 when he purchased two- and paid cash for both according to his niece. One became his daily driver which according to her he drove it into the ground , but this Hunter Green edition was his “occasional driver” – hence the low mileage. From the time she was a little girl our owner dreamed of owning a Wagoneer and since her uncle had no children this amazing vehicle passed to her. She has cherished this Grand but felt that the timing was right to pass it on to the next owner. Letting go was not easy and in the glove box is a hand written letter from her to the next owner with some of the information in this write-up plus other details she wanted to share about her uncle and her Wagoneer experience. We were honored that she chose us to refurbish this amazing Grand Wagoneer and to have the opportunity to find it the next wonderful home.
Carfax confirms the super low 56,100 miles as original, clicking up nice and slow over the years, with with no accidents reflected on the Carfax.
