Description for Jeep Wagoneer 1988

1 of a stunning 16 piece assortment of ultra low mile Grand Wagoneers for sale. Harwood Motors is proudly representing this brilliant burgundy Jeep Grand Wagoneer. These Grand Wagoneers represents a kind of bookending of the early SUV movement. On the one hand. it really was one of the first full-sized family SUVs designed to take the place of the venerable station wagon. By the time this 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer was built. it was the top-of-the-line luxury model designed ostensibly to compete with the Range Rover and Toyota Land Cruiser. When it went out of production. it really was the last of the American wood-paneled station wagons. All of this sentimentality is probably why they remain so popular today. with low mileage examples like this being the most highly prized of all. This one does indeed show just over 39. 00 original miles. which is not a misprint. The low mileage is reflected in just about every component on the truck. particularly the luxurious interior which is extremely nice. It has been freshly repainted (except for the tippy top roof area) and the vinyl wood sides were redone using none other than Team Grand Wagoneer woodgrain and rebordered with the factory original wood trim. ). It is public knowledge that all these late 80's Grands under recall for notorious paint issues faced by AMC and later Chrysler. so while it isn't original paint. that's probably a good thing. not a demerit. The chrome is in good order with 1988's unique grille in excellent shape. A burgundy cloth and leather interior is known for wearing well and this one proves the statement. The seating surfaces show only the light wear and comfort marks. about what you'd expect for 25 years and 40. 00 miles. The biggest challenge with red materials is UV damage. and while there's some very very light fading in the cabin the interior shows that this Jeep has undoubtedly spent most of its life in a sheltered environment. Many power accessory creature comforts were standard in the Grand Wagoneer. including power windows. twin power bucket seats. automatic climate control. a tilt steering column. and of course. the ultimate luxury is Jeep's innovative all-wheel-drive system. which means that this 4x4 can go just about anywhere. anytime without causing you much stress. The list of demerits is small. including a dome light and original radio that doesn't work. a clock that doesn't keep time (typical). and power locks and cruise control that need some attention. On the other hand. the A/C is cold. the power windows are operating and it's hard not to feel like someone important with this much sheetmetal at your command. And if you have a family. you'll appreciate the full-sized spaciousness of the beautifully preserved back seat and cargo bay. The Grand Wagoneer came with only one engine. a 360 cubic inch V8 that dated back to the Eisenhower administration but was still pretty hard to beat in terms of reliable torque production. Big SUVs were not about performance. although it's pretty sprightly with a great V8 rumble. but rather effortlessness and the ability to climb steep grades without breaking a sweat. And you can rest assured that this Jeep's off-road credentials are unrivaled despite the leather-lined suit it wears. With under 40. 00 miles on it. the engine is barely broken in and runs superbly. starting easily. idling smoothly. and moving the big Wagoneer around without ever seeming to work very hard. The engine bay is completely stock with only routine service items replaced along the way. suggesting careful ownership over the years. Underneath it might be a little crusty. but it's completely original with the exception of removing the gas tank skid plate and there was no need for undercoating. As a result. there's no place for problems to hide and a careful examination shows the usual grease and road grime. but no signs of malignancy that comes with many higher mile examples. The 3-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. the transfer case goes about apportioning torque without a fuss. and it rides rather well for such a big truck. Power steering and power brakes are probably mandatory on something this size and it has just been fitted with four brand new 235/75/15 whitewall radials. Mileage is confirmed by an AutoCheck vehicle history report and a clear title showing 39. 88 actual miles. Grand Wagoneers with low mileage are obviously a finite resource. and with excellent maintenance. this one is worth every nickle.
