1964 Jeep Wagoneer 4Door 4X4
This is a beautiful example of one of the first true 4WD vehicles on the planet.
The Jeep Wagoneer was introduced in 1962 and was way ahead of its time. Powered by its original 230 cubic inch 6-cylinder engine, it was named the “Tornado” engine. (No – the engine did not come out of an Oldsmobile Tornado which incidentally was not made until ’66) The overhead camshaft design had spherical heads which could technically be described as a HEMI. The transmission was designed and built by Borg-Warner, the best of the best in its day. This Jeep came optioned with a 3 speed manual and a four-wheel drive system with manually locking hubs. When engaged, the 4WD layout provides a rigid, zero slippage connection between front and rear axles.
This beautiful Wagoneer had undergone a full body-on restoration to original specs a decade ago and has been garage kept ever since. It looks as good today as it did 10 years ago. The factory colored Blue paint shines like glass and doesnt have a mark on it. Chrome and trim has all been refinished and is beautiful. The rear window crank was missed during the restoration and remains unfinished and shows some peeling. The undercarriage is super clean and rust free indicating that this Wagoneer has rarely seen any off-roading if at all!
The interior is as clean as the day it left the factory. All gauges AND features are clean and sharp and all work as they should. Seating is as good as new and all glass is clear. Front and rear seat belts have been added. All windows roll up & down easily including the rear window glass. A newer Motorola stereo sound system was installed several decades ago. It works and sounds great.
Driving is a pleasure! The 230ci 6cylinder gets adequate gas mileage for such a large classic 4WD vehicle. It starts instantly, gets up to speed quickly and cruises comfortably at highway speeds all day long. Stopping is immediate. Brakes and large tires are nearly new.
A rarely seen color coded Jeep dash compass does work but is a bit twitchy and inaccurate. Mileage is ridiculously low and it shows. Restoration photos are available and come with the sale of the Jeep. In a world filled with Chevelles, GTOs and Road Runners, here is something different that can be driven, shown and appreciated at a very fair price. Come on in for a look and a test drive.
