What about a Grand Wagoneer? MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this example from 1986. At that time, it was the longest-running, domestically produced vehicle (24 years) on the same platform. Marketed as a station wagon, the pioneering design created the luxury 4x4 niche and became known in time as a â€œsport utility vehicleâ€ (SUV).Jeep has a knack for creating iconic vehicles, and among them the Wagoneer might be the grandestâ€”if nothing else, the largest. Introduced in 1963, it paved the way for the SUV as we now know it. The Wagoneer was built from 1962 to 1991, an epic 29-year run that's unimaginable today. Later it would return as a high-end trim level, and Jeep is currently working on reviving it as its three-row flagship. Made in American Motors Corporationâ€™s Toledo, Ohio factory, this example is finished in Medium Blue Metallic (code AJ) with the customary woodgrain appliquÃ©s on the sides and rear. The paint and trim are in overall very good condition while this senior Jeepâ€™s bodywork is straight. The engine bay is extremely tidy, the Autocraft battery appears new and the chrome bumpers are in good, original order.This Grand Wagoneer rolls on BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A radials, size 255/75R15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a factory alloy wheel with gold-colored inlays. The wheels are in good condition while the tires are in very good order. This Jeep has a 109-inch wheelbase and carries a 6,200 gross vehicle weight rating.Under the hood is AMCâ€™s 360 CID V-8 engine bolted to Chryslerâ€™s famous TorqueFlite A727 three-speed automatic transmission. With this drivetrain is AMCâ€™s Selec-Trac four-wheel-drive with a New Process 228 transfer case, a Dana 44 front axle and either an AMC 20 or Dana 44 rear axle (1986 models used either unit, depending on production sequence). There is also a Trac-Lok limited-slip differential.Selec-Trac has a dash-mounted control that allowed the driver to change between two-wheel and four-wheel drive. The switch activated a vacuum-activated spline clutch that was built into the transfer case that engaged the front axle assembly. A shift lever mounted on the side of the transmission hump allowed the driver to shift between four-high and four-low with the vehicle moving, although the transmission had to be shifted to neutral and the vehicle had to be moving at less than five miles per hour to accomplish this.Driver convenience features were plentiful â€“ air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks, power front seats, cruise control, tilt steering column, rear defroster and intermittent wipers.Inside, the Honey leather interior is in overall very good condition. The front and rear seats offer spacious accommodations and the front has a fold-down center armrest and the matching carpet is in good condition. The headliner appears almost immaculate, the factory two-spoke steering wheel looks good. It has a GM-sourced steering column and ancillary components (turn signal lever, tilt steering control lever and the column-mounted gearshift lever). The instrument panel offers a full array of gauges and is in good order but the radio and the air conditioner are inoperable. The inner door panels are in good condition. The rear cargo area offers 74.5 feet of space with the rear seat folded. A JVC AM/FM stereo with cassette deck completes the interior.Starting in the 1986 model year, the Grand Wagoneer received a new four-part front grille and a stand-up hood ornament. An updated audio system became a standard feature and a power sunroof installed by American Sunroof Corporation, became a factory option. However, the most significant change was the installation of a fully revamped interior including a new dashpad, new instrumentation, new door panel design, shorter nap cut-pile carpeting, new leather and corduroy seat cover designs and front seats that now featured adjustable headrests. Changes were made to the instrument panel that now featured square gauges and contained an improved climate control system. The metal glove box door was also replaced with a plastic door featuring a woodgrain overlay. A new two-spoke steering wheel also included new stalks for the lights and wiper and washer controls on the column. The Selec-Trac driveline gained a new Trac-Lok limited slip differential to send power to the wheel with the best traction. Jeep raved that, although sharing a pickup truck chassis, the Wagoneer had a sophisticated station wagon body design that was more carlike than any other 4x4 on the market. Four-by-four competition to this Jeep in 1986 included Chevroletâ€™s K5 Blazer, Dodgeâ€™s Ramcharger, Fordâ€™s Bronco and GMCâ€™s K5 Jimmy. The Wagoneer made its debut seven years before Land Rover launched its Range Rover in Great Britain, 18 years before the four-door and 24 years before that upscale marque appeared in the US as a 1987 model.Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this luxury 4x4 survivor.
