Here's one generously proportioned classic ride sure to bring on the memories! This 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is clad in an accented color scheme that over the years became the “go-to” look for the model - one that was thoroughly refreshed only a little while back. Add to that a rebuilt drivetrain, with the paperwork to back it up, and you have a nostalgia-inducing, iconic ride that's ready to provide plenty of future motoring adventures.
The exterior retains the stylish yet no-nonsense stock sensibility that attracted buyers back in its heyday. Having benefitted from a respray only a few years back, the maroon steel surface has a nice shine - a buff and wax session will take things to an even higher level. While the assembly of chrome on display is in its original state and has yet to be re-plated, it's in pretty solid shape, leaving you with the viable option of hitting the road with everything just as it is, or taking the steps to elevate this Jeep's curb appeal even further. The woodgrain paneling running the lengths of the sides is a signature styling cue for the model that's certainly well-represented here - it's in outright excellent shape, with a consistent glossy look and smooth texture. Above, the roof rack appears to have been recently replaced and while the headlights have also been in place from the beginning, they're surprisingly clear. Even under closer inspection, you'll be taken right away with just how appealingly road ready this car is.
Climb inside and prepared to be surrounded by plenty of room. The sheer amount of real estate inside these doors is impressive - if ever a vehicle earned the accolade “room for the whole family” it's this one right here. The interior remains in its original configuration and has yet to see the inside of an upholstery shop - while there's evidence of its years of service here and there, it's certainly nothing to keep you from rounding up your crew and getting the road trips started right away. This classic driving environment actually has plenty already going for it - the seating is still really comfortable, the headliner is in clean condition and the woodgrain interior accents are looking good. The factory air conditioning system received proper maintenance just a little while back, so it's also in fine form and up to the challenge of cooling off this sizable interior. Lower the liftgate in back and you'll find quite a bit of storage space behind the rear bench seat.
The 5.9 liter V8 dwelling underneath the hood is very likely the original powerplant and it, along with the automatic transmission right behind it, was rebuilt only a couple of years back - there's documentation on board to back up the work performed - so this is a smooth-performing drivetrain that's capable of taking you wherever you want to go. During the rebuilding process, its 4-barrel carb and distributor also received the attention they needed to be in top form, and the spark plug wires, as well as a number of other maintenance items, were replaced for increased dependability. Recently serviced power brakes that feature discs up front bring prompt stops, while power steering makes this sizable vehicle easy to handle as it cruises on its set of 15” stock wheels wrapped with Hercules Roadtour tires.
With its unique combination of rock solid road-readiness and timeless rugged looks, this 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer represents a rare opportunity. Call today!
