1978 Jeep Wagoneer Additional Info:

I purchased this Jeep AMC Wagoneer 360 Automatic and made it a RUNNING project vehicle for me and my father so we could drive it while working on it. We finished a 79 Camaro and started on this Jeep until he had some health issues arise hence the sale. This is THE model that most Jeep AMC guys want. Right year, right engine. Bound to grow in value.
I have this listed locally so I reserve the right to remove the listing if it does.

I created a video showing me start the vehicle and do a walk around:


What I have replaced to get it driving and licensed for the road:
  • New carbonation system (far better than stock)
  • Electric fuel pump (far better than stock)
  • New ignition system
  • New starter
  • New wiring
  • Fuel lines cleaned and some replaced
  • I only run non-ethanol gasoline in it to make it run like original specs
  • Good solid tires
  • New battery

I've photographed the exterior rust areas that will need to be addressed as best I could. Typical rust areas for this model and year. Besides the body needing to be reworked, I'm passing along what I know it needs to be a fully restored Wagoneer:
  • Rear window does not roll down. In the picture you can see the interior rear cover missing but I have it. It will need a rebuild.
  • New upholstery. It has original seats with some non-professional carpeting. You can see the tears in the seats.
  • New head board. Old one removed.
  • Roof luggage rack. I don't have it and the OEM roof holes need to either be covered or a roof rack purchased
  • Lower body trim is not installed.
  • Needs radio, speakers and antennae
  • Needs mirrors
  • Some bumper cover bolts are missing (see pictures)
This Jeep has the original leaf suspension with a 3 inch lift so it rides like a truck straight out of the 70s which means bouncy.
If you have questions, please message me. I will answer as many questions as I can. For serious buyers I can also connect you to my personal mechanic that has been working on this Jeep over the last year.
You can pick the Jeep up in person or have it shipped. I recommend using uShip as I have used them many times.
For references I can also put you in contact with past buyers of my cars so you know that I represent what I'm selling as best as I can.
Purchase with confidence. I have been on eBay for over 20 years with PERFECT feedback and collect some great cars and watches.
Please note: If you have 10 feedback or less please message me before you buy. I reserve the right not to sell or cancel bids to bidders or buyers with negative or less than 10 feedback without talking first.
Thanks for looking!
