1981 Jeep Wagoneer FACTORY BUILD SHEET $1.00 START PRICE NO RESERVEIf you are thinking of ever purchasing a Jeep Grand Wagoneer and don't wish to pay what others are asking then look no further. True $1.00 start price and no reserve. This sale is for a 1981 Jeep CHEROKEE CHIEF 4 DOOR SPORT AMC POWERED 360 V8 and unbeatable Quadratrac.
I was recently diagnosed with cancer and am now in the beginning process of having treatment and spending more time at the hospital so this NEEDS sold regardless of price now. I bought this for a keeper and it has remained on the back burner now current events dictate a new priority/reality.
This is a really a nice start on an unmodified vehicle with the normal wear and tear. It has been parked for several years since my ownership and came from a local family who were older and quit driving it. Not due to any known mechanical issues. Currently all the lights work. The AM/FM radio and the LCD clock works. Motor turns over fine. Antifreeze is good. Oil is full, trans fluid is clean. It will need the proper wake up plugs fresh fuel etc to take back off. I do not see any major surprises with the motor or transmission here. AMC built a solid mechanical platform.
It has the normal signs of outer body corrosion they normally all get. This has been kept at bay as it was Ziebarted with an aftermarket rust proofing at the dealership level combined with the factory efforts and my WD40 that I buy in the gal. form and use it in a spray bottle. I applied over the whole body/engine inner doors etc as I knew I was going to keep it. When operational I feel the body will give good service for many more years in its current status without any other panel replacement. It does need a rear window glass as it was broken in a freak accident. You would benefit by sourcing an entire tail gate as this is where the most concentration of rust is. The other panels lower quarter skins and rocker skins can be purchased on line for under $100.
My take is if you have followed the Jeep market the Grande Wagoneers are very collectable. The Grand Wagoneer is the peridiam when it comes to luxury bar none. This is the same vehicle without all the faux wood and power options sure to cause problems sooner or later. Truth is not everyone likes wood. In fact the Chief is 4 door a bit unusual to see today. The interior is unique and features a breathable pattern perfect for the outdoors. Easy to clean and maintain and as you can see it is original but still looks great. It will benefit with a good cleaning It is complete but missing only the rear window. I have kept it under a tarp and have had it soaked in WD40. I had planned on keeping it being an AMC enthusiast. Everything works. The clock/radio/signals/lights brakes etc. It is full of antifreeze and oil and trans fluid is clean. Engine turns over fine. The Jeep even comes with the original build sheet and original owner docs and two sets of keys. A great feature is the crank windows another rugged item that will always work.Selling as is and as seen as a non running project vehicle. Please do yourdiligence.
When asking questions please give me time to answer. I am currently in and out of the hospital having recently being diagnosed with cancer. I plan to list many more of my vehicles as I am able. When scheduling an appointment to see in person prior to the auction ending or when picking up the weekends are the best. If bidding please be responsible and considerate. I want closure and the very last thing I wish to do along with everything else going on is to deal with someone who is playing games. It takes time I simply do not have. It is very hard to hang items such as this with no start price and no reserve but my goal is to sell. Thanks for looking and check back.
