Owner-Restorer Dad [Bob 1929-2018] passed away this year before he could finish this restoration completely. He was a Korean War Veteran, loving husband, father, and an upright car salesman with 60+ years as an auto broker and dealership owner, as well as classic car collector/restorer of dozens of different makes/models from 1930s to 1980s. I was one of his salespersons since the '70s and have always helped sell his classics. We surely miss him!

JEEP FACTS: In 1981, AMC expanded the Wagoneer line to three models. The Custom Wagoneer was the basic model, yet it included a four-speed transmission, free-wheeling hubs, power steering and power front disc brakes, as well as passenger area carpeting. A new Brougham model added an upgraded interior trim that included woodgrain for the instrument cluster and horn cover, floor mats, power tailgate window, as well as the "convenience" and "light" packages. The Brougham's exterior included a thin side body scuff moulding with a narrow woodgrain insert, roof rack, as well as bright door and quarter window frames, and a lower tailgate moulding. The Wagoneer Limited was the top-of-the-line with standard Quadra-Trac, automatic transmission, air conditioning, tinted glass, power windows and door locks, cruise control, AM/FM stereo radio, extra quiet insulation, power six-way driver and passenger bucket seats with center armrest, upgraded door panels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, extra thick carpeting, and retractable cargo cover. Various versions of the Wagoneer were manufactured in the US and other nations by Kaiser Motors (1962-1971), American Motors (1971-1987), lastly by Chrysler (1987-1993).
The SJ-body Wagoneer line saw consolidation in 1984 with the end of the "Brougham" model, while the "Limited" was renamed the "Grand Wagoneer" to free up the "Wagoner Limited" nameplate for compact XJ Wagoneer. In mid-1984, AMC introduced a less expensive version called the Wagoneer "Custom", without the simulated woodgrain exterior. The Grand Wagoneer remained "the gold standard of the SUV market" and from 1985 it would continue in one version using the old SJ-body until the end of the Grand Wagoneer production under Chrysler.
