800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1981 Jeep Wagoneer Limited is that ideal classic 4x4 that mixes big comfort with serious vintage appeal. So as these become more and more popular, it's great to find an example that remains finished to a high standard of style and luxury. It makes for a classic SUV that's as useful as it is beautiful.
Jeep is bringing back the Wagoneer, and so you know that's going to send the passion for the true classics like this into overdrive. After all, these had a chiseled look born out of a rugged utility vehicle. And by the time it got to a Limited model like this, the style had evolved into elegance - making it like America's Range Rover. Some of that sophistication is also seen in the paint. The factory-correct Chestnut Brown is a good choice where the metallic element loves to shine, and the deeper tones of the brown harmonize with the wood veneer trim. And speaking of the wood-like trim, the detailed style running down the sides and on the rear to remind you this is the 4x4 wagon that can be one with nature. There's even a vintage look on the brightwork, including the large bumpers, wide grille, full trim package, and luggage rack. This whole idea of both stylishness and ruggedness come together nicely on the 12-spoke, 6-lug wheels.
The almond tan interior looks great against the deep brown exterior. Plush seating, more wood-like trim, excellent carpeting, a taut headliner, and a smooth dash really drive home the quality and premium feeling that these had when new... and this example still upholds that today. While this has seating for up to six people total, you'll be perfectly happy cruising solo thanks to the bucket seat up front with folding armrest. These front seats even power adjust to the ideal comfort position. Other nice luxuries include power windows, power locks, cruise control, AM/FM/cassette radio, and modern R134a air conditioning. So this one is ready for everything from tailgating to road trips. And just in case you need to bring even more with you, there's a proper trailer hitch on the rear.
Jeep fans will love looking under the hood and seeing a faithful old friend. The 258 cubic-inch six-cylinder is part of over half a century of tradition of robust but smooth inline motors. You can see that this one has been cared for correctly, right down to details like the newer hoses and a new valve cover gasket. It fires up readily and has the eager feeling like it's ready to hit the trail. The A727 three-speed automatic transmission is both strong and smooth, so it's an ideal partner for this SUV. The two-speed transfer case four-wheel drive system means this is a true Jeep. But when that go-anywhere nature just means a run to the grocery store, the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front make any journey easy.
This is a terrific mix of vintage Jeep and complete luxury. You know a loaded Wagoneer of this caliber is tough to find, so don't miss your chance. Call now!
