1973 Jeep Wagoneer Custom

If you're a Wyle E. Coyote or Roadrunner fan, ell, his 1973 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Custom is your truck. If not, lease take a moment to look past the murals and realize that this is one rare 4x4. Jeep was building SUVs before it was cool, nd even in the early 1970s, hey'd perfected the recipe: V8 power, o-anywhere driveline, nd chiseled good looks that need no excuses.The two-door variant probably competed with the Ford Bronco and Chevy Blazer in the 1970s, ut for Jeep fans, he Wagoneer was a different animal altogether. The look remained in production for more than two decades in various forms, nd that wasn't because it was ugly. Quite the contrary, n fact, s the dynamically sculpted bodywork, rom the hood scoop to the arrow-shaped side trim, akes the Jeep stand out among a lot of really boxy competitors. As I said, he Wyle E. Coyote motif is cool if you're into the desert, oad Runners, r even just have a playful sense of humor, ut also beyond that, he light blue paint is a great choice on a truck like this. It's certainly presentable, ut it's not so perfect that you won't be able to take it out and drive it. The chrome and stainless trim, f which there is a considerable amount, s all in good shape, articularly the shiny chrome bumpers, nd it includes a few custom tricks like the twin frenched antennas on the quarter panel, nd a cool woodgrained roof deflector.

It's quite inviting to step inside this Jeep, hich offers blue and gray upholstery that works well with the medium blue exterior. It's not as extroverted, ut rather comfortable and period-correct, ith a few upgrades to make driving a pleasure. The big center console is obviously one such upgrade, ffering a pair of cup holders and a lot of storage space that you wouldn't ordinarily get in a Jeep of this vintage. The original instrument panel offers big, old round gauges with clear markings and a nice-looking woodgrain effect. Perhaps the biggest upgrade is the AM/FM/CD/DVD system in the center of the dash, hich offers a 7-inch touch screen for convenience and speakers stashed throughout the truck which are obviously capable of delivering some serious sound pressure. The cargo area is very nicely finished with a wood floor and neatly padded sides, o nice that you'll think twice about actually using this to haul cargo.

For moving the Jeep around on- or off-road, t uses a 360 cubic inch V8, hich was AMC's workhorse. Reliable, orquey, nd ready to play, t's been upgraded with an aluminum intake manifold, olley 4-barrel carburetor, nd a set of long-tube headers that do wonders for torque production. The under-hood area is nicely dressed, oo, ith body-colored accents, hrome valve covers, nd lots of attention to detail. Obviously it's got power steering and brakes, hich are probably mandatory on a rig this size, nd its' backed by a GM TH400 3-speed automatic transmission, o you shouldn't have to worry about repairs being a challenge. Jeep's 4-wheel-drive system is legendary and you will note that there are no levers inside the truck or locking hubs outside, ecause it has full-time 4-wheel-drive, genuine innovation long before it became common. A custom dual exhaust system has a cool V8 sound and the underside of the truck is tidy, f not detailed for show. Shiny aluminum wheels wear slightly oversized white-letter radials that give it an awesome stance.

An unusual find for the Jeep fan, his cool Wagoneer offers 4x4 fun in a slightly more sophisticated package. Call today!
