are the answers to some
questions we are frequently asked.
Q. - Why not advertise "0" miles in your
Wagonmaster renewal work, since you are basically starting over?
A. - The reason we do not touch the odometer on our vehicles
is because it is illegal! It is against the law to change or roll
back, or misrepresent the actual mileage.
though the engine may have been rebuilt and the body restored, you are
still required by law to report the actual miles on a vehicle. The law
does not allow you to change or replace the odometer. So don’t
be misled when you see someone offering a vehicle with 0 miles. I have
found the quickest and best way to determine true mileage is to do a
CARFAX or AUTOCHECK search or history, using the VIN (vehicle identification
number). The VIN number should be provided by the seller, and should
be part of your “due diligence” on any vehicle you are considering
for purchase. It is not an expensive process, and it is an important
pride ourselves in buying very low mile vehicles, and we guarantee those
miles to be accurate and actual. Remember, Grand Wagoneers have a 6
digit odometer, excluding the 1/10th mile digit.
is a serious matter for a seller to misrepresent the mileage on any
vehicle, so “buyer beware” and do your homework. If it sounds
too good to be true, it usually is. For the buyer’s protection
the following statement appears on all state certificates of title,
under the heading ODOMETER CERTIFICATION:
"FEDERAL AND STATE LAW REQURE THAT YOU STATE THE MILEAGE IN CONNECTION
WITH TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. FAILURE TO COMPLETE OR PROVIDING A
FALSE STATEMENT MAY RESULT IN FINES OR IMPRISONMENT."
years of experience I would advise prospective buyers to steer clear
of extremely high mile vehicles of any kind.
- Do you buy Grand Wagoneers?
A. - Yes! provided they're low mileage (70k & under),
clean, never damaged and rust free. Over 90% of our purchases come

who have seen this website and decided to call for a quote from the
WAGONMASTER. Let us know what you have to sell---we may be your best
- What about purchases from eBay?
A. - Be wary of eBay. Though I have purchased a few Woodys on eBay myself, novice
buyers should approach an eBay purchase with caution. I often see misleading
information from sellers on eBay. It is sometimes difficult to determine the
the unit, and as with any other eBay purchase, you should review the seller's
profile carefully before bidding or buying.
- Do you sell parts or service for Grand Wagoneers?
A. - No. Wagonmaster does not sell parts or provide service for Grand
Wagoneers. See your local Jeep/Chrysler dealer or salvage recycler.

A. - No. Wagonmaster does not perform appraisals for Grand Wagoneers.

lending...only as a means of referral.)
- Will Wagonmaster arrange for delivery of my "new" Grand
A. - Yes! We work with several auto transport haulers who do door-to-door
delivery. They are insured and bonded and will perform the delivery
for approximately 1.20¢
per one-way mile. Please note our new delivery

A. - No. We have never offered a warranty plan or guarantee. There
are such programs available through various firms or institutions
so desire, however our professional restore

bar is set high.
- I'm from out of state
do I pay taxes and registration fees in
A. No. Only in your state.
Can I use the cheaper grade of gasoline without damage to my Grand Wagoneer?
A. Yes. Your Grand Wagoneer has been "tuned" to use Regular
unleaded 87 octane. The following information is taken directly from
the owner's manual:
vehicle was designed to meet all emission regulations and provide
excellent fuel economy when using high quality unleaded gasoline.
Use unleaded gasoline having a minimum posted octane of 87.
In addition to using unleaded gasoline with the proper octane
rating, those that contain detergents, corrosion and stability
additives are recommended. Using gasolines that have these additives
will help improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and maintain
vehicle performance. Generally, premium unleaded gasolines contain
more additive than regular unleaded." (Also 87 octane is
normally .20 cents/gal. cheaper than 95 octane.)
- What do you mean by "showroom condition" in your renewal
A. - Our customers continually praise us by saying, "These wagons
look like brand new, inside and out---and even under the hood! I am
super impressed!" This is because our detail people take great
pride in their work. The interior will look like new, with dry and wet
vacuuming on all carpet. They even use Q-tips to clean the air-conditioning
vents. In other words, they spare no effort to do it right. The exteriors
are compounded and waxed, and the wheels and chrome are polished. The
engine compartment is given the same careful cleaning and attention.
An average of 40 hours of detailing is put into each vehicle. These
efforts give us showroom condition (clean and classy). Unlike the typical
detail job, with our Grand Wagoneers - the closer you get, the better
