Chassis no. 1JCNJ15U4JT100329. Burgundy Pearl and woodgrain over beige leather and plaid cloth. 360/144hp, automatic, fog lights, narrow whitewalls, roof rack, aftermarket fuel injection, back-up camera, later CD stereo.

Evaluation: Represented with 55,316 original miles, and restored with some mild, tasteful deviations from stock like the paint and fuel injection. The bumpers are a little dull but the paint and woodgrain look great. Very good interior with new dash. The wheels look brand new, and the underbody looks recently detailed. A very well-presented Grand Wagoneer.

Bottom Line: The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is bulky, underpowered, inefficient and often unreliable, but it has an unmistakable look and a buttery smooth ride that have endeared it to fans of vintage trucks and SUVs. Prices for clean ones have gotten so high that people have sunk serious money into their Grand Wagoneers, and at auction they are often rewarded for their efforts.

Over 70 grand for one would have been a laughably high number five years ago. It’s still a massive price today but not uniquely massive, and still quite a bit less than the all-new Grand Wagoneer that Jeep just reintroduced.
