Hope this is the correct spot to ask this. I just purchased a 1966 Jeep Super Wagoneer that some of you may have seen on ebay. I was a little skeptical myself, so with cautious optimism I bought it.
The super wagoneer was delivered last night, so I went through most of it today and have more questions than when I started. First of all the serial number is 1414D 100037, meaning the 37th super wagoneer made in 1966, right? Is anyone aware of any lower number still existing?
After looking through the extensive paperwork that came with the Jeep, it turns out the original owner bought in Feb 16, 1966 was E.F. Kaiser. I looked up that name and it's either Edgar senior who was Henry Kaiser's son or Edgar junior who was Henry Kaiser's Grandson and one time owner of the Denver Broncos. E.F. Kaiser owned the Jeep for 16 years and sold it in 1982. If this vehicle belonged to Edgar Junior, he would have bought it when he was 24 years old. It would make more sense that the father owned it, as he passed away in 1981 and probably was sold as part of the estate? From a value standpoint does it make any difference?
It has 51,000 original, documented miles, so I think I'm going to restore it to as close to new as I can. Just wondering if the low serial number and the close connection to the Kaiser family has any bearing on value.
Thank you all very much for your opinions and look forward to some time on the site.
