Seller Information


More Details & Pictures

1976 Jeep Wagoneer with 131,340 miles on the original AMC 360 V8. Power steering and power brakes. Clean SC title in my name.

New polypropylene fuel tank and sending unit, fuel pump and filter, and rebuilt carburetor. New battery, starter, starter relay, ignition module, alternator, master cylinder, spark plugs, coil, pcv valve and EGR coolant temperature override switch. Most of the vacuum lines are new as well. Engine is very responsive. Transmission shifts well and does not slip. Tires are older Pirellis, and have plenty of tread left.

All gauges are operational, although the speedometer needle bounces at low speed, indicating the need for a replacement speedo cable. The car has AC, but it is not charged, and I have not tested it; it would need to be gone through to be operational. As you can see in the pictures, the car is basically stock, although I put in a new headliner and installed thermal/acoustic-dampening insulation on the ceiling, and a Mexican blanket to replace dry-rotted carpeting. I also replaced the beaten-up under-hood insulation with thermal insulation, as can be seen in the pictures.

Unbelievably, the original dash pad has no cracks in it. The front seat has a few small tears along seams, as can be seen in the pictures. The back seat is great; no tears or excessive damage. Door panels are all in great shape, as is the brightwork throughout the interior.

The electric tailgate window works (as shown in the two pics of the rear; one is up and one is down); I bypassed the kill switch in the tailgate with a jumper wire, as the original switch was a little finicky. Now, the window goes up and down with the switch at the dash, and with a custom-made key at the tailgate (the original keyed tailgate switch was damaged and removed).

The paint is original (Sunshine Yellow), and presents really well for a 44 year old vehicle. As is shown in the pictures, the wood-grain decals on the sides are pretty oxidized; however, their patina is in keeping with the rest of the vehicle. There is rust-through in both rear fenders. I installed fiberglass as a temporary stop-gap to keep excessive exhaust fumes out of the vehicle, but the fenders will need some basic metal work or replacement for a more permanent solution. Also, one of the rear seat lap belts has come out of the tire well due to rust-through.
This can be easily fixed by welding in a small plate in the tire well, but I have not addressed it because I have not needed the belt.

This is a really fun vehicle, and always gets a lot of attention. You just don’t see these around anymore. I would love to keep it, but simply have more vehicles than I can consistently use. So I am putting it up for sale at a reasonable price so that someone else can finish up the project and really enjoy a piece of Jeep history!

$5,000. If interested, please call or text 8 zero 3, 4 six 6, 4797. Please no scammers; and I don’t need help with the sale.
