1987 Jeep Wrangler Wrangler description
1986 1/2 JEEP WRANGLER - FIRST YEAR OF THE WRANGLER
ALL FIRST YEAR WRANGLERS WERE TITLED AS A 1987 AND ARE VERY DIFFERENT FROM LATER WRANGLERS AS THEY RETAINED MANY CJ FEATURES - UNIQUE AND COLLECTIBLE ONE YEAR ONLY VEHICLE
ALL ORIGINAL AND IN COLLECTOR CONDITION ASIDE FROM APPEARANCE & PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTS - ORIGINAL SHEETMETAL, FLOORS, INTERIOR, SEATS, UPHOLSTERY, INCLUDING EVEN THE CARPET!
HIGHLY DESIRABLE GARNET METALLIC PAINT
ONLY 66,000 ORIGINAL MILES - ALWAYS GARAGED - AUTOCHECK IS CLEAN AND GREEN ALL THE WAY THROUGH SHOWING NO ISSUES AT ALL AND VERIFYING MILEAGE! TRY TO FIND THAT WITH ANOTHER OLD JEEP
This is a 1986 1/2 mid year release Jeep Wrangler. They are all titled as 1987 model year vehicles - this Jeep YJ replaced the CJ midway through 1986 and is a very unique Jeep compared to later Wranglers. This Jeep is in near mint condition with all of its original interior, body tub, frame, engine etc. I have owned it since 1991 and bought it from the original owner who was with an AMC dealership. It has always been garaged and is in great shape and has never been off road aside from minor backroads - it has never been articulated, bent, or stressed
The Jeep is all original aside from minor appearance and performance upgrades and AutoCheck is CLEAN and green all the way thru showing NO ISSUES and no collisions and verifying mileage. Ownership by us since the early 90s is also shown - just try to find that with another old Jeep.
The Jeep has a 4.5 inch military wrap spring lift, articulating shackles, most recent program shocks, braided stainless steel brake lines, American Racing wheels, 32.5 BF Goodrich All Terrain Radial T/As, Custom Bumpers with front and rear receiver hitches, 10,000 pound winch, off road lights, neoprene high volume fuel tank and skid plate and much more - the 258 AMC engine was gone through by AMT in St. Louis which is the most expensive Pro engine shop in the area for longevity and performance upgrades including Keith Black Forged Pistons, full balancing of rotating assembly, full head work including all Crane valvetrain from the cam to the valvesprings and everything in between. The engine was assembled to blueprint specs and does not have very many miles on it. It has an MSD ignition, Weber Carb, Alloy finned valve cover and tons more - including a transfer case freshening as a preservation measure - about $15,000 worth of parts and engine work
This jeep was lightly used by our family and always adult owned, driven and maintained. Just take a look at the interior - that should say it all - it still has the original Jeep pattern Upholstery and it is just about perfect - it still has the original carpet - the floors, interior, jams and underhood still have the original factory Garnet paint - the body has been resprayed once and not due to rust - just due to light fading - we have pics of the jeep before it was painted. The paint job is excellent and the metallic is very complex and the finish is smooth and shiny - better than original
It drives extremely well with all new suspension pieces and large wheels and tires and has plenty of power. It doesn't smoke or overheat - you can sit in traffic or cruises and it performs perfectly. It has stock gearing so you are not killing the thing driving down the road. We didn't select huge heavy tires so it has plenty of pickup. All in all it is awesome but it is not perfect as it is 32 years old - it has the minor things that are to be expected on a 32 year old well cared for vehicle, but it is by far better than 90% if not more of them out there
An important point - Most vehicles like this have gone through dozens of high school graduating classes and have been wrecked, painted and repainted numerous times over shoddy bodywork and in the hands of novice mechanics and abusive drivers over the last 32 years - not this one - this vehicle is a good example of a survivor condition Jeep that was well loved and lightly used with tasteful mods - Most of these type Jeeps are cobbled together sketchy builds typically sourcing a well worn out Jeep and bashing it together with whatever parts then beating the hell out of it off road - not this one - if that is the price point you are looking for then I'm sure you will find one that needs tons of work and will likely cost more in the long run
Considering this the asking price is cheap compared to just the paint and labor put in on this build - No matter what this sale is a give away - you could not duplicate or build this Jeep for what I am asking even if someone gave you a clean Wrangler to start with for free! - we have over $15K in just parts not counting paint
I have included 80+ pictures of the Jeep from every angle, in different lighting, pictures of the interior, engine compartment and underneath - although I did not take any with the top off -sorry - it is a fresh Supertop and I want it to stay fresh - but it looks like a Jeep with the top down when its off - I believe I do have a Bikini top too, but I haven't used it in over 20 years.
The closeups of the paint do not do it justice - the Garnet metallic is one of the best factory colors ever put on a Jeep. It looks great in any light. This Jeep is fairly well optioned with tilt steering, PB, PS, Courtesy light group and upgraded rear view mirrors.
Have a look - Everything looks like it was just put together - all new and fresh - it truly is an exciting vehicle - Please reply with a phone number for a response on specific details that would require a lengthy typed explanation - I can go over everything in detail on the phone - thanks
· 1987 Jeep Wrangler- clean surviving Jeep
· All New Suspension Components - Front and Rear
The pictures above indicate what a huge labor effort went into creating this listing, and also keeping this Jeep nice for 32 years and upgrading it. Knowing what I know about this Jeep it is safe to say that I will just keep it if my price is not met. There is no way it could be replaced or duplicated for the sale price therefore any offers below asking price will have to be negotiated - I do have a transport company that will keep the Jeep clean on its way to the new owner - I would not recommend an exposed car hauler for something this nice, but that is up to the buyer
For the most part this Jeep is 100% top notch and ready to go. There are a couple things that we have accepted as it is a 32 year old AMC vehicle, but maybe the new owners may want to address. This is true with every vehicle out there, but many sellers seem to fail to mention this fact and just focus on all the great things - I can go over everything in detail on the phone - in short we are absolutely fine with the way the Wrangler is, but I would be glad to answer any questions
