1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Recognized as the first luxury 4-wheel drive sport utility vehicle, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer continues to be as an iconic vehicle for its luxurious options and features. The Wagoneer model was produced under numerous manufacturers from 1962-1991. In 1984, the Wagoneer went to a unibody structure which greatly improved ride and handling qualities.
For consignment a Grand Wagoneer that will need some TLC to get it up and running and to pass a state inspection. We would refer to this as a “Barn Find.”
With its 4 doors, wood panels, and brown exterior paint, which is faded, gaps that are out of sync, and body panels that have invasive rust, particularly on the rocker areas, this truck appears to be well involved in some exterior degradation. From front bumper and grille bodywork, to front quarters to lower rear quarters, rockers on both sides, under faux door “wood,” rear pillars and tailgate, rust has begun the battle, and will need to be remediated. Glass is all there and uncracked, chrome and brite work is pitted, and badging shows corrosion.
With front buckets that have soiled cloth inserts and outer leather bolsters that have rips and lots of cracks, the seats have been well utilized. Carpeting is stained, door panels are dirty but all intact. Dash has cracks in the upper padding, and instrument panel is surprisingly clean. Headliner sags in the front section and rear cargo compartment carpet is very faded. The odometer shows 150,179 actual miles.
Seen under the hood an original engine bay with plenty of “patina.” This 360ci V8 only seems to run on starting fluid. A 3-speed automatic is backing it up, and do not know if it is original to the truck.
Plenty of work to be done here, as this undercarriage shows plenty of surface and even some invasive rust. On the suspension is surface rust, and on the rockers is some invasive rust. Structural integrity may have been compromised.
For the ambitious restorer or for a parts truck, a true barn find of a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the top of the line Jeep offered in this year.
