Asked by Aug 05, 2017 at 11:25 PM about the Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Ok. So I used to own a 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, tan "Woody" and loved it.
I sold it back around 1998 or so and have regretted it ever since. I'd love to
consider buying one and use it as a daily driver in a small town where I now
live, however, I'm not ready to spend a ton of money on it. I'm looking to
spend under $10k on a "Woody." Ideally under $5k and then invest in an
engine for reliability? What would I look for? I don't know car maintenance,
and engine work, but am able to do cosmetic repairs as my time allows. What
might you recommend? look for one with no rust, and consider replacing the
engine, etc... if need be? or shop for one ready to drive? I know, kinda vague,
simply interested in investing in a wagoner once again after close to 20 years.
Thanks so much.

An '86 Wagoneer is valued around $14K for an excellent example, fair would be $4K, so your looking at one that needs work if you want to spend around $5K. Finding one will be the hardest part. Look for one with minimal rust, no frame rust or damage, then fix it up and add a newer V8. Good Luck on your project.
