Mmmmmm, wood. Alright fine, it’s faux wood, but it’s bitchin anyway. This 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with 56,874 original miles is a complete frame-off restoration and frankly, it’s glorious. It has been restored back to stock with the exception of a few go-fast bits from Howard, Edelbrock and MSD, and is for sale from Cruisin Classics in Columbus, Ohio for only $79,995–a bargain considering the caliber of this restoration.

We would. Would you?

The Model.

The Jeep Wagoneer was a luxury fourbie produced and marketed by Jeep under three different automakers–Kaiser, AMC and Chrysler–from 1962 to all the way up until 1991. It actually all started with Willy’s-Overland Motors, though. Back in the early 1960s, Willys-Overland Motors was owned by Kaiser Jeep Corporation, and they decided they needed to develop something more technologically advanced and capable, a response to offerings from Chrysler, Ford and General Motors starting to encroach on Jeep’s four wheel drive stronghold.

The Wagoneer had a sophisticated “station wagon” body design that was more carlike than any other 4x4 on the market at the time, most of which were still producing trucks that favored grit over luxury and comfort. The Wagoneer had things like an independent front suspension, power steering, an automatic transmission, a factory radio, and even air-conditioning. When it all came together, you got all the great performance stuff you’d expect in a capable 4x4, but the driving comfort of a car. Especially in the Grand Wagoneer trim, which was the Wagoneers most luxurious and well-appointed version, which can be spotted easily by looking for the sweet, sweet characteristic wood vinyl decals. 

10,159 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneers were built, and 101,637 Grand Wagoneers were built during its entire production run. Of those, the 1989 versions are among the most highly sought-after (and heavily priced), largely due to its interior upgrades. 


The Specs.

This impressive frame-off restoration is in mint condition, from its mechanicals and plush interior right down to its mesmerizing Gloss Dover Gray Metallic paint, which looks just perfect next to its new faux wood vinyl graphics. The only imperfections cited by the folks at Cruisin Classics are some wear on the rear emblem and some light pitting on the chrome plating on the roof rack.
