With a hardy V8, loaded A/C interior, new paint, and classic 4x4 prowess, this 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer reminds us that the granddaddy of SUVs is the kind of classic that will always be in demand.
This was one of the final years for the long-running SJ Wagoneer. It was one of the rarer production years, and arguably, it was also Jeep's best. That's why it's great to find one in this condition. The white paint is part of a high-quality respray that gives this classic timeless style. And speaking of classic, a proper Grand Wagoneer wouldn't be complete without detailed wood veneers running down the sides and on the rear. Straight body panels and exceptional brightwork really drive home the quality total appearance. The blocky, upright lines of these Jeeps make them instantly look sturdy. So while the investments in this one certainly have erased any hard use, this is the SUV that just seems to announce to everyone that you've seen it all. There's even a proper trailer hitch on the rear so you can take it all with you.
The maroon interior looks distinguished against the white exterior. These earned the Grand part of their names by the amount of comfort these Jeeps provided. The upholstery is known for its plush mixture of leather and cloth, and so it's great to see it so well preserved here. These were known for being loaded with the best features, including power front seats, power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, and cruise control. These later ones had some factory features that were worth the wait, like an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette and an overhead console. Plus, since this is roomy enough to take everyone along for the ride, it's ideal to have the air conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a.
The Jeep/AMC 360 cubic-inch V8 has been a long-standing powerhouse utilized by some legendary stout vehicles. The odometer reflects the SUV's actual mileage, but you can tell there has been all the right investments along the way. It's in everything from the premium Optima red top battery, to the way this fires up and runs with gusto. Chrysler's A727 three-speed automatic transmission is both strong and smooth, so it's an ideal partner for this SUV. These were built with a two-speed transfer case to give you true 4x4 prowess. Plus, when that go-anywhere nature just means a run to the grocery store, the power steering, power brakes, and front discs make any journey easy.
Complete with owner's manual, now that Jeep has a new Wagoneer on the horizon, these classics are beginning to be even more admired. So time grab a well-invested one while you still can. Call today!!!
