For Sale: 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

The 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has one of the best stories around. After all, we like to think that classic Jeeps have the ruggedness to last for generations, and this is a one-family SUV that has been passed down from grandfather to grandson. So when you think about a "traditional" SUV, this one holds a lot more meaning. And more than just an heirloom, this is a low-mileage and loaded 4x4 with V8 power and a stance that gets you noticed.


More than just this Waggoneer's personal history, this is desirable because this is a sharp-looking example of the SUV that established a premium reputation. After all, the new ones are well over $100k when spec'd out the way you want it. That's why the originals are getting so much attention on the classic market today. And since originality is the key to original Grand Waggoneers, this one is quite attractive. Its known one-family history means the paint, interior, motor, and mileage are all believed to be correct and original. The black paint is a great way to show a timelessly premium style. A proper Grand Wagoneer wouldn't be complete without detailed wood veneers running down the sides and on the rear. These look particularly good on this example, and so the deep tones coordinate with the paint nicely. You will find some touches of age and use, but that just helps tell the story of originality and makes the level of gloss more impressive on a nearly 40-year survivor. The large bumpers, wide grille, full trim package, and luggage rack are all part of this classic American premium flair. And the whole package has the right mix of stylishness and ruggedness, and you see that with the upgraded stance and tires that still utilize the classic Jeep wheels.


The interior is part of where the Grand Wagoneer really set itself apart. The plush carpeting, wood-like trim, and leather-trimmed seats are not only retro-cool, but it has the kind of care and preservation that feels luxurious in modern times. Of course what makes it so comfortable is it's loaded with the best features, like power windows, power locks, cruise control, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and updated R134a air conditioning. There's seating for up to six and room for everyone's cargo, but you don't need any of them to enjoy this time capsule of a Jeep. The folding armrest gives you true front bucket seats. And everything from power seats to a tilt steering column means you can easily find your individual comfort zone.


The Jeep/AMC 360 cubic-inch V8 has been a long-standing powerhouse utilized by some legendary stout vehicles. It has a highly original presentation, right down to the working under-hood light. But what's really important is that it fires up and runs with the eagerness you want in a one-family respected classic. The A727 three-speed automatic transmission is both strong and smooth, so it's an ideal partner for this SUV. The two-speed transfer case four-wheel-drive system means this is a true Jeep. And this gets enhanced further with investment in new shocks on the front, new Rough Country rear shocks, a Rough Country steering stabilizer, and Cooper Evolution M/T tires. It gives this Wagoneer a beefy look without taking away from the vintage style. And while this is capable off the pavement, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are about making sure this classic is as easy as a daily driver.


Complete with owner's manual, you know this classic Grand Wagoneer established a mighty reputation. So you know a special example like this will make owners of the new Grand Waggoneer jealous... all while you paid thousands $$$$$ less. Call today!!!
