Destined to be an American classic, the Jeep Wagoneer was the first luxury 4x4. The original design and origins date back to the Kaiser-Jeep era of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Originally produced in 1963, the Wagoneer was a "sport utility vehicle" (SUV) decades before the term was even used, the all-wheel drive Wagoneer saw only minor mechanical changes during its 28-plus-year production run, the third longest in U.S. automotive history, ending in 1991. In 1984, the luxurious “Grand Wagoneer” debuted, offering a level of style and comfort above all other SUVs on the market, including leather seats, power windows, power seats and air-conditioning. In recent years, the Grand Wagoneer has become a highly sought-after and desirable collectible, full of character and possessing handsome good looks combined with utility.

This Grand Wagoneer is finished strikingly in the highly desirable and rare factory color of Bright Red with an attractive contrasting interior done in Light Tan. The condition of this Jeep is exceptional throughout, but even more impressive is the fact that it is completely original and unrestored, still retaining its shiny original factory paint and luxurious soft leather and cloth interior. Carefully driven less than 52,000 miles since new, the superb original condition of this classic American SUV is a testament to the great care it has received by its caretakers since new.

This 1989 Grand Wagoneer originally came with a 5.9-liter V-8, yielding 144 horsepower and 280 foot-pounds of torque running through a three-speed automatic with part-time four-wheel drive, including low-range gearing. In place of the original engine, this Jeep has been significantly upgraded and is now powered by a powerful Dodge V-8 Hellcat engine with an exhaust manifold from the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk installed by the professionals at Black Mountain Conversions. It has been driven just 500 miles since the conversion was completed. With an incredible 707 horsepower and 645 foot-pounds of torque, this one-of-a-kind Grand Wagoneer drives like no other.
