Nearly Perfect 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer – Salina, KS

In 20 years you’ll probably be telling your kids you could have picked up a mint Jeep Grand Wagoneer for under $20k.  This 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with 102,000 and asking price of $14,500 is for sale in Salina, KS.  Seller describes this example as a 9/10 – runs well and everything works (including all 5 power windows).  Carburetor has been rebuilt, new exhaust, tires, and recent tune-up.  This example is equipped with the 360 cubic inch 5.9 L AMC V8.  Seller discloses that the chrome on the front grill has some problem areas (bubbling and chrome tape), paint fading on the hood, and some oil under the motor.   For better or worse, the vehicle was preserved due to sitting in storage for many years.


1985 was the first year of the improved suspension package which included an upgraded front sway bar, low friction rear springs, and gas filled shock absorbers.   Just 17,814 Grand Wagoneers were produced in 1985.  Chyrsler bought AMC in 1987 and largely left the Wagoneer untouched.  In 1984 AMC introduced the XJ body style intended to replaced the SJ body style with the all new, smaller, and more fuel efficient XJ Cherokee but demand for the SJ kept the body style alive until 1991.   While some consider the ’87-’91 models to the apex of Wagoneers we like the additional chrome and interior styling pre ’87.   This 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is for sale in Salina, Kansas.
