1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Item #: 140501




In 1984, AMC transferred the Wagoneer and Cherokee names to the small unibody XJs. The full-size SJ Wagoneer was preserved until 1991, however, under the “Grand Wagoneer” name. Marketed as a more luxurious SUV, it was also one of the last vehicles sold in North America with a carburetor. The 1991 model was available with a “Final Edition” badge on the dashboard. Considered “the gold standard of the SUV market”

This particular vehicles had a full engine rebuild, bored 30 over, flat head tappets, pushrods, and crane cams. Along withthe engine the interior was renovated by Extreme Vehicle of Danbury, CT (over $30,000 put in by current owner). All said and done, approximatly 300hp pushes this Grand Wagoneer down the road. A new radiator, trans cooler, AC condenser (AC converted to r134, blows ice cold) intake, carb, headers, and a custom single exhaust coming out in rear where it should, gives the Jeep a great tone that not loud, but ylets you know its a V8! New 265/75/15 tires, shocks, air coils in the rear and new fog lights up front round out the build.

It's hard to find a unique rebuild like this that is turn-key, ready to drive, and registered and legal in CT! Funt Fact: This vehicle's clone was recently seen on a Taco Bell commercial.
