1979 Jeep WagoneerI looked long and hard to find such an original and classic Wagoneer to build into my dream full size Jeep. Unfortunately, now find myself selling this great Jeep, ut I hope to find an enthusiast to be the caretaker for it.
If you are unfamiliar with the Wagoneer, hey are an iconic truck which started the now common SUV. Designed by famed industrial Designer Brooks Stevens, hey were a luxury full size station wagon with a 4x4 drivetrain made to go anywhere. They inspired much imitiation such as the Range Rover, ut in the end, here is only one Jeep Wagoneer. They are comfortable, asy to drive, asy to service and a full classic.
In the last few years, hese trucks have really had a resergence and found new followers, yself included. I went searching for a well taken care of original truck and found this one. Over the next couple of years the truck was gone through and made into what you see here.
Mechanically the truck is very fresh. The original 360 V8 was gone through and found to be in excellent condition. It received a valve job, ew carb, tarter and alt as well as regasketing and all accessories rebuilt or new. The drivetrain was also totally gone through including trans and transfer case. It has a mild 4 inch lift with fully rebuilt Dana 44 axles with 3.54 gears and an lsd rear. The springs are new as well with new shocks. It wears GM 4x4 Rally wheels with 31x10.5 tires. The A/C and heating system was rebuit and it now has a modern AC compressor with all new components and a rebuilt A/C box.
Cosmetically the truck was a good solid original truck with mostly original paint. This was deemed acceptable and we loved the slight patina that made the truck feel completely original and more stock. Some small repainting was done in areas to make it better, ut its mostly original. The chrome on the truck is a mix of new, echromed and original. The grill is a later simple grill which I preferred. The bumpers are excellent originals which backdated from an earlier chrome 3 piece bumper Wagoneer. NOS tail lights and rear trim panels were located to round out the outside of the truck. It was also decided to delete the woodgrain stripe and paint this area a flat mettalic gray to complement the wheels.
The interior is nearly completely new. First after tear down, he truck was completely fitted with Dynamat insulation on the floors, oof and behind the dash. The seats were completely rebuilt with new foam where needed and reupholstered with Top Grain 100% leather which has contrasting stiching. New carpet was put in along with a new headliner, owever the original door panels were in great shape and just cleaned and retained. The dash is completely new. All the glass was removed and reinstalled with new rubber when this was done. The dash has a new top as well as new trim including NOS guage surround and rebuilt switches. The truck was rewired at the same time when the dash was out. In the dash we put a very high end modern radio made by Retro Sound which has Ipod an AUX input as well as bluetooth capability for phone. new speakers were installed in the doors and rear cargo area and it sounds great! All the door and glass rubber is new and all windows including the back glass mechanisms have been rebuilt The windows go up and down just as they should again. A very light tint was also added to help cool the truck.
Overall, f you are looking for a Classic Jeep Wagoneer, don't see how you could do better. These trucks are commanding big prices these days, nd I have seen many unrestored and inferior trucks bring big bucks. I am serious about selling however, nd my reserve is much more reasonable. Take this opportunity and buy a truck that has had all its major systems gone through and thousands of dollars and man hours invested. This will be sold and I reserve the right to end the auction at anytime for the right offer.
Terms: Buyer pays shipping, owever I can help with contacts. example $650 to Los Angeles. Must be paid for within 5 business days. Must contact me within 24 hours of auction end. And of course, old as is where is with no guarantees, fterall it is a 35 year old truck.
