SOLD $6,0000.00 SOLD

I see lots of rough looking Wagoneers that don't run or need "just a little" work, this isn't one of those. This '77 Jeep Wagoneer was my daily driver until recently. Runs perfectly, drive it home today! Street legal, tags renewed and good until 01/01/2025.

My ‘77 Wagoneer is in good condition, meticulously maintained as close to stock as practical. The Jeep has ZERO emission control systems. NO catalytic converter (stock configuration on this model). Engine PASSES Arizona Emissions Test easily (see below).

All service and repair records from 1978 included.

Minimal rust and solid frame. I moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1978, 45 years in the desert has preserved the body, it’s a dry heat. The Jeep has never been in an accident although it has the appropriate amount of small dents for a 46 year old vehicle. Drive as-is and go 4-wheeling without fear of damage or scratches. This Wagoneer will go anywhere and climb anything, the stock 360 V8 engine, Quadra-Trac automatic transmission with the 2.57:1 Borg-Warner BW1339 low range reduction unit will get you there and back in style.

Original Owner’s Manual and Technical Service Manual included. The Technical Service Manual has every specification, procedure and tool needed to diagnose, service and repair every part including engine, Quadra-Trac transmission and transfer case.

The photos below were probably taken during the fall and winter of 1977,
of course one of the first things to do with a brand new 4-wheel drive Jeep is to drive it onto a frozen lake.

The hill climb was in the fall of 1977. The Jeep had the stock white wall street tires but would still climb like a badger.

Back in the '70's the co-pilot was in charge of the beers, as you can see Jack was doing a fine job.
