More Details & Pictures
I am selling my 1979 Jeep Wagoneer. I purchased this vehicle in 2011 from a seller in Delaware County, and just have not had the time to use it the way I had wanted to. It is overall good shape. Runs well, brakes are good, transmission is fine. I had plans to drive it on vacations, and use it like the family truckster. However, I am transferring to a different office within my company, and moving two vehicles, one of which is largely a project just isn’t feasible at this time.
The odometer is around 75,000 miles. There is some typical Ohio rust on the body (fender flares, rocker panels, wheel wells). It leaks a little fluid here and there, but nothing major (some oil, and some radiator fluid). It is an older (carbureted) vehicle, so it need time to warm up before heading out on the road. The engine is the 360 c.i., and the transmission is an automatic TH400. Tires that are on it are Goodyear Wrangler MTs. It comes with a full size spare. In the past couple of years, the only non-routine work that I have had done to the Jeep is new wheel cylinders. I drove the Jeep as a daily driver from October-April. I helped a friend move towards the end of October, and the rear window stopped working. Up until that point, it had functioned as designed. I am not sure if there is a short somewhere, if the switch needs replaced, etc. I have not taken it anywhere to have it examined to this point. Other flaws include a broken lock head on the rear drivers side door (I mean the piece that sticks up out of the door frame on the inside).
For hard core Jeep aficionados, yes the grill is incorrect for the year, because the previous owner preferred the “Boobie” grill that is currently on it. It does not come with a year-appropriate grill.
Please feel free to email with any questions. I can also get some additional interior pics to those who are interested.
The vehicle will also come with a replacement rear window and another transfer case (including chain).
Additionally, I purchased a number of parts for it in October. My intention was to refresh the engine a little, through he installation of a new intake manifold, carburetor, seals, and a tune up.
