This Grand Wagoneer was sold and put into service as new on 11-13-85. It was sold to a resident of Cherryville. NC. This person drove the vehicle 43. 89 miles and then sold it to a person in Shelby. NC. The second owner kept the Jeep from 8-31-1988 till 6-12-2014. Twenty six years owned by one person. The jeep was driven from 1988 to 2004 approximately 114. 00 miles. It was serviced with regular maintenance. About 138. 00 miles it was necessary to rebuild the engine. The owner had a local garage do a professional rebuild on the engine. Today the engine has just over 20. 00 miles on it. It runs great. Around 2004. the second owner bought a pickup truck. His kids had grown up and he did not need the four doors and extra room. So. for the last ten years the Jeep has set in his back yard. driven only about 1. 00 miles in ten years. It was exposed to the elements and started to show weather worn. paint fading. wood grain peeling. overall just looking bad. Because I have driven Jeeps since the late 1960’s. I have a reputation for being a Jeep man. So. one Sunday afternoon. the second owner called me to see if I wanted to purchase his Jeep. I looked at it. and thought about it. I knew it would take a lot of work and money to make it a nice Jeep again. The more I thought about it. the more I realized that it is hard to find a Jeep that has so much potential as this one did. The body was in great shape. mechanically it was in great shape. it only needed a lot of cosmetic work. I wanted to restore the Jeep back to its old glory. so someone else could enjoy it. as I do my own Jeeps. So. I decided to purchase the Jeep and refurbish it. to as close to the original condition as I could. The Grand Wagoneer is endowed with the amenities expected in a world class luxury vehicle.
