Castaway Dream Machine - 1991 Final Edition Grand Wagoneer
Posted October 14 2017
This is not 1988, or 1989. This is 1991, when only 1,560 "Final Edition" Grand Wagoneers were paneled and rolled out.
Our grandfather came to own one (another story for another day) and he would take us crisscrossing the Island backroads, kicking up dust from Monomoy to Cisco, teaching us how to drive and giving the big jeep a few "Nantucket Pinstripes" in the process. Watch those bushes, boys!
The whole family would occasionally pile in and slalom out to Great Point to cast for blues and stripers – we even caught a few! This car summons a lot of great memories for us and we're sure that the iconic Grand Wagoneer captures a time, a place, a smile on the face, for many people.
Sadly, Granpa's Wagoneer is long gone, but last year we were able to share the opportunity to own one – fully restored and decked out by Wagonmaster. The Castaway Dream Machine lives on, and we like to think of it driving somewhere, windows down, a sea breeze whistling softly past the oversized sideview mirrors ...

Had two of these…’88 and ‘89. Had to give them up cuz gas mileage was ridiculously low and those engines run hot!!! Still breaks my heart. If I had the $$$ I would buy a rebuilt, reimagined, redesigned system that wouldn’t cost so much to drive. Black cherry with sand interior, please!!!
I have an 89 same color and still drive it from Great Point to Smiths point and every where in between.
LOL the custom pin striping is best on the way out to Coatue
Do you still have one available? Price & mileage?
Can you send me full specs and pics?
send me more pictures, I am very interested- What is mileage?
She’s a real beauty! It would be amazing to roll around Cape Cod and Buzzards Bay in this old classic.
I had one of these in the late 80’s, but had to part with it because it burned oil something terrible. I really loved the look of the car and it was especially handy carting 4 children around.
Me too Please!
Please send me al the info and interior pics of the wagoneer.
please send me all info on the 1991 Jeep Wagoneer.
