Jeep’s popular Wrangler model first saw the light of day way back in 1987 as a compact (two-door) and midsize (four-door) four-wheel-drive off-road SUV. It’s iconic style and unique features have continued on to the Wrangler of 2021 as well. This is a first-generation 1989 Jeep Wrangler 350ci LT-1 that we have on sale, from Maryland with 51,945 miles on its wheels. It’s got some nice upgrades on it and will be a fine partner for your off-roading adventures as well as on-road escapades.
The Wrangler nameplate was meant to succeed the Jeep CJ model that ran from 1944 to 1986. Thus, the design has cues that hark back to the iconic CJ with some modern touches as well. This 1989 Jeep Wrangler 350ci LT-1 comes with an eye-catching two tone paint job of white and baby blue. It’s got all the necessary chrome and stainless steel accessories, and rides on a set of 15-inch chrome wheels wrapped in 35-inch all-terrain tires. It’s got hard doors and a GR8TOPS top that allows it to be converted into a pickup-truck body style. The interior features a grey color scheme, and seats two occupants on custom seats. A console system has been installed, as has a tilt steering wheel column and carpet kit. All gauges are present, as is the period-correct push-button radio. A shiny steel gear knob actuates the manual transmission, with the lever for the transfer case alongside.
The first-generation Wrangler never came with a factory V8 as it was only offered with AMC in-line four and six cylinder engines, but this 1989 Jeep Wrangler 350ci LT-1 has had a heart transplant as you may guess from the name. It’s a 350ci Chevrolet LT-1 small block V8 that’s fuel injected, breathes through custom headers, and belches out of a fully custom exhaust. It drives all four wheels through a five-speed manual transmission, making this a Corvette-engined lifted 4x4 as the owner puts it. Power figures are not stated, but LT-1s were routinely capable of 300hp. This Wrangler has also been treated to a full replacement lift kit with new shocks and U-bolts, an aluminum radiator and new fuel lines.
