value of grand wagoneer

Hey, brand new here. I finally was able to purchase one of these monsters, have always liked them, now they are collectibles makes it harder to buy one at a decent price.
I have seen lots for sale and the prices range alot. I am wondering how you can determine the approximate value of one, cuz I see restored ones going anywhere from 15K to 65K or more.
Thanks in advance for any input. Ron

Figure out what you want to do with it. Reliable classic cruiser, overland rig, rock crawling, etc

The classic clean unmodified survivors are the most expensive currently, but are only as capable/reliable as they ever were. A 2barrel 360 with emission controls and a slow automatic donít make for an exciting drive.

The more modified the drivetrain plus stock and in good shape the body/interior fetch the next highest prices. Chevy fuel injected drivetrain, but clean stock Jeep appointments make a nice reliable alternative to a new lower range Grand Cherokee for example and are priced accordingly.

Next are clean, partial resto-mods for over-landing. No need to work about exact stock setups because bumpers/lifts/roof racks etc will have been added to make camping and stream crossing. Add a professional drivetrain swap to find the most expensive versions of these - but also reliable.

In the $7-$10k range youíre looking for decent examples to move into one of the groups above overtime.

$5k range gets you a running/driving project. Not worried about cutting fenders on these to clear full width 1-tons and big tires (that youíll need to add)

Less than that, youíre getting parts.

Well, value -wise; what did you pay for the one you bought?

Thanks for the helpful reply I have a lot of experience with vehicles, never heard of a "fuel injected drive train". Care to expand on that?
At the moment we are looking at this as an investment. Can't afford to keep one of these for the next year or so.
It is currently very stock, needs many hoses replaced, new carpet, headliner, is missing back seat, paint and vinly wood siding.

Paid roughly $3150 for it. But once restored, I'm wondering how to figure the amount of what I can expect to get for it.

Totally depends on the condition after restoration.

Sorry, meant fuel injected Chevy engine and built to match transmission, i.e. LQ9/4L80E with an adapted 241t-case.

trouble is cost of labor. Quality of the work. if you can check the boxes and not go under it might be an investment. But most times people are paying for the "work". Paint/ body then all the mechanical work it will need. Finding parts are not the easiest for these and many older vehicles today that are outside the box so to say. You do the labor all of it and there is more "room".

to get top dollar would need top notch work. so what will it be worth very hard to say since it aint over till its over and the work has yet to begin.

J.e.e.p. just empty ever pocket.

77 under 2k

I do not know the rules for selling stuff - I will have to research - but this 1977 starts runs drives, leaks a little, needs a new shell because of rust through- no smog stuff - carpet kit & headliner would be $400+ - clean title in Vegas Nevada under 2k - so $4k-5k fixed up depending on body paint etc.
