This 1982 Jeep Wagoneer Limited is from one of the most ideal years
to own this classic full-size adventure machine. And as you dig
into the details, you'll see this V8-powered 4x4 is an
exceptionally preserved/presented example where you can see the
investments were about maintaining the vintage attitude that makes
these a true icon.
We bet this 4x4 is one of the big reasons why Jeep brought back the
Wagoneer. They saw how the popularity of these never wavered even
as the number of choice examples dwindled. So pay close attention,
because this one has what you want. It's part of a few years where
the Wagoner's design is often considered the most desirable. You
have the updated square headlight front end with a billet-like
grille in a wave-like form. And the later 12-spoke alloys are an
icon of these Wagoneers. But the rear still has the classic design
with the wraparound tail lights. The Jamaican Beige paint is
believed to be largely original, and the same goes for the
wood-like side trim. It even looks like there's still the original
dealer tag on the rear. It's clean, complete, and attractive with
just the right mix of touch-ups and aged-in touches to make sure it
is proudly vintage. And you'll appreciate the little things, like
the wood-like decal on the luggage rack, campsite-ready fold-down
tailgate, and the Limited badges that show this classic is the
forerunner to the Grand Wagoneer.
The nutmeg brown interior carries similar tones to the wood trim of
the exterior, and so this has a natural feeling inside and out -
and that's always cool on a Jeep. The Limited is all about making
you and your passengers truly comfortable. That means leather seats
with velour inserts. The front ones power adjust, and there's
adult-size legroom in the rear. You also have power windows, power
locks, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing
to blow cold again.) There's even a new headliner. It's a preserved
and respected interior, and so you get details often missing from
others, like the rear cargo privacy screen and Jeep AMC logo floor
mats. And a premium feature that really defines the era is the
AM/FM radio with integrated CB. It's currently display-only and
it's there to impress vintage fans, right down to the factory-style
tag on the mic cord. And while vintage, it's also a terrific
cruiser for modern times thanks to features like the tilt steering
column, a proper gauge panel, and cruise control.
The Jeep/AMC 360 cubic-inch V8 has been a long-standing powerhouse
utilized by some legendary stout vehicles. And this one also shows
the right maintenance, including a remanufactured carburetor. So it
remains a strong runner, and the two-speed transfer case for the
four-wheel-drive system makes this feel like it's ready for its
next adventure. But with the power steering, power brakes, front
discs, and smooth three-speed automatic transmission, this is also
still ready for the morning commute.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and other
original info. Sure, the new Wagoneer is nice, but we don't need to
tell you the added stature that comes from owning the original.
After all, you park this next to a loaded 2022 Grand Wagoneer, and
we bet the crowds won't even pay attention to that $100k machine.
So it's time to be vintage and correct with a well-preserved and
well-presented Wagoneer Limited. Call today!!!
