1989 Jeep Wagoneer Grand Wagoneer
Hey Woody Lovers - It’s “Shaggy’s” 27th Birthday…
Yes, 27 years ago this Jeep Grand Wagoneer was born – you remember those days - 1989 – it was the year of Batman, Ghost Busters II and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade to name a few. It was also another year of great 80’s hits: My Preogative, Straight Up, Once Bitten Twice Shy, Armageddon It, Love Shack, and who could forget Fine Young Cannibals “She Drives Me Crazy”! Good times, good times!
Well, here it is 27 years later and who knew the world could get so crazy….but you can relive those simpler times once again, cause Shaggy’s been restored and looking better than ever! Oh sure, when we got him he had some dings and scratches, his shocks were sagging, marred interior, headlights were going dim, clogged lines, and even some missing parts (I’m sure you can relate)…but it’s a new day and Shaggy has a new lease on life.
So for anyone who is looking to reminisce their days of old, driving with the windows down and the wind through your hair (or lack thereof), he’s ready to enjoy the ride with you!
So you might be asking, “What are we getting here, just another “pretty face with a little nip and tuck?”
Oh no…he’s nearly a complete makeover from the inside out, starting with the exquisite and rare color combo of Dover Gray and Sand, here’s all the details:
Body and Electrical:
Bodywork and paint was just professionally completed by me (27 years as a Professional Auto Body painter). Paint was originally black, with the Jeep being disassembled and properly recolored to Dover Gray, which was a correct factory Jeep Grand Wagoneer color for that year. The bodywork was done to where the car is arrow straight - paint is smooth as crystal glass with a deep gloss from being colored sanded and buffed and topped off with 3 coats of Premium clear. Looks stunning!

Clear title and clean Carfax in hand
To sum it up, there are a lot new parts on this beauty or many that have been restored.
But, as with anything that has aged, there’s always some imperfections when you take a really close look (just ask some of our Hollywood friends)…
· Chrome and brightwork have slight dings on a couple of pieces and show some age, but looks good overall
· Bumpers have slight scratches around trailer hitch and scrapes on bumperettes
· Power mirror on driver’s side will not go up and down, but does work side to side
· Rear and front passenger window regulators work, but are slow
· Dash is sun-warped and has some cracking at the front of defroster vents facing window (dashpad nicely covers)
· Cruise control is on the fritz, which is pretty typical
· Compass/Temperature on overhead console does not function
· Splits in interior upper door wood veneer
Now as beautiful as this Woody has turned out, he is still a 1989 and not everything is “perfect”. When you purchase one of these beauties you can expect some occasional tinkering and maintenance and please realize it is a carbureted motor and you will need to pump the gas pedal prior to starting. That said, these are still incredible vehicles and well worth the extra care that is required.
