Stretched Jeep: 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Limousine by DaBryan Coachbuilders

It’s not every day that you see an oddball vehicle such as this 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Limousine that Barn Finds reader Russell Glantz found here on eBay. However, sometimes you get a reminder of how truly small the world is, especially in the oddball car community.

Why do I say this? This past winter, I visited some friends who moved to Colorado and then drove back to Pennsylvania with them for the holidays. As we were reaching Colorado’s border, we made a quick stop at a truck stop, where I saw the longest Jeep I’d seen in my entire life.

The seller of this vehicle resides in Melrose, Massachusetts, and mentions in the advertisement that they drove the vehicle back from Colorado during this past December. Because of this, I’m going to guess this was the same exact Grand Wagoneer that I spotted within my travels. Regardless, it’s a surefire testament to this strange Jeep’s reliability, and it goes completely against the advice from an old for sale ad for this vehicle: “You could drive it home if you like, but I would not recommend adding more miles to a classic vehicle such as this one.”

It seems DaBryan Coachbuilders originally built this Grand Wagoneer, which saw use as a commercial vehicle from 50,000 to 137,000 miles. Currently, it has 138,000 miles on the odometer. The drivetrain consists of a 360 cubic inch AMC V8 engine, which pairs to an automatic transmission. Somewhat surprisingly, the truck retains its working 4-wheel-drive system.

The interior of this Grand Wagoneer retains an OEM style, meaning that any burgundy interior bits from a regular truck should work here, especially for the rear forward-facing seats. Unfortunately, the seller does note that while the truck runs great and is in mostly excellent shape, there are some electrical gremlins that need addressing.

The price for this unique SUV is $20,000. The seller notes that most of these Jeeps lived and died in Colorado, so this opportunity does make it easier for those in the northeast region of the United States to get their hands on a very rare and very custom Grand Wagoneer limo. What do you think of this long Jeep?

    I’m not only a reader, I’m a writer!
    All joking aside, thanks for picking up this one that I suggested. Funny coincidence how this may be the same one you saw!

    Let’s get this straight. The owner wants $20k “very firm” for a 32 year old Jeep limo with 138k miles that needs electrical work yet he doesn’t provides any underneath, engine or front seat pics. For his sake, hopefully he didnt pay too much for it, as he will be lucky to half his asking price.

      He’s got “find another one” working for him. I’ve never seen one or heard of one before. Neat find, but doubt he’ll get near 20. I’m in Braintree,Ma myself but can’t imagine “selling” this one to the wife.

        Probably a good reason for that!

    Steve, you don’t need a picture of the front seat, the rear seats don’t look that good for limo use. That tells me the front seat (always the most wear) can’t be very good. For $20K with 138,000 miles it should have fresh paint, a nice interior and a rebuilt drive train with receipts. My eyes aren’t that good these days, but I see a lot of flaws.
