Yes, that's right. Orvis is selling Jeeps.

So I was buying obscenely overpriced hunting & outdoors gear for this season when I stumbled upon this:

http://www.orvis.com/intro.aspx?dir_...6&subject=9294

Orvis is selling refurb'ed Waggies through some Texas outfitter, "Satisfaction Guaranteed." I didn't investigate too far after finding this, but for the price of what it would probably cost to order one through Orvis, I could probably fab a SOA Rolls-Royce with front AND rear winches.

Additionally, as this is my first official post in JF, I'd just like to thank you guys— you've made me laugh plenty, and I've learned a lot. Literally hours upon hours of reading the tech sections on this forum as I've worked through my CJ-7 build.

Yeah... I might pay that much for a restored-to-new 98 5.9 ZJ, but probably not a Waggy. You think Orvis would be offering restored Orvis ZJs if anything...

The Waggy is considered an icon of Jeep and the SUV world as the Original luxury SUV, and there aren't that many around anymore. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a ZJ. That would be why Orvis is restoring the Waggy.

Seems like I remember them marketing restored Land Rover Series II's a few years ago too. Obviously out of my price range, must be for the "J. Peterman's" of the world. "Ah yes, lets see, three pairs of chinos, four oxford shirts, a $30k used Wagoneer, and an urban sombrero. Should about do it, Elane."

My second favorite Jeep after the Wrangler. I bought one and had to dump it. There were so many electrical problems with it. I needed a DD and could not afford to fix it.There were other issues mechanically. The Mrs. hates it. I tell her all the time,"When we hit the lottery,there will be 2 of those in the driveway.

There was a guy here in Florida refurbishing them and selling them for 10-15 K. that seems more reasonable.

If you can swing a dead cat and hit a 5.9 let me know . I am quite aware of what Waggies are, that's just a lot of money to pay for something with that old of technology in it.

Now that is a lot of money for old technology.
And the TR is the only one that is even cool.

I know exactly what you mean. I had a one owner in garage kept condition. Separation, divorce and dd did not mix well but I loved that waggy.

There is a market for them....however that market is not the people in Jeepforum.com or other sites like ifsja.org

wagonmasters starts with very good condition waggys and goes beyond that point. Mostly cosmetic work, not alot of mechanical.

Regardless, the wagoneer are making a comeback, with the money crowd. Look through a polo or ll bean catalog from this year or some other preppy type clothing company, there are wagoneers in alot of the shoots. Several members on ifsja.org had their vehicles used for fashion shoots recently.

remember, the wagoneer and subsequently the grand wagoneer, were the FIRST luxury SUV ever. Wagoneer was introduced in 63, back then the competition in the 4wd department was basically the suburban and the international travelall. Both of which were essentially I closed trucks. Not luxury 4wd family wagons.

My mother has near mint condition Grand Wagoneer. Just needs a really good detail all over the engine and underside to make it shine. It has carburetor issues though so it sits still doing nothing.

Waggys were really popular amongst Microsoft exec in the not too distant past, they were paying big bucks for good ones. I really like my 82 Cherokee, too bad the frame was bent and the engine blew up!

My mom had waggys exclusively from 1974 til 04. Finally swapped her 91 for a Yukon, and misses the waggy. My Grnadmother has stupid money and had the 91. She sold it to my folks in 93 and bought a brand new caddy with all the bells and whistles, drove it for 4 months, sold it and bought a used waggy and had it fully restored. If I ever win the lottery I will have a few of them all ground up restorations with upgraded parts were needed and fuel injection on built motors. IMHO, you can't beat the feel and ride of a waggy. Good solid luxury.
