History

This 1966 Jeep Wagoneer only has 17,830 original miles on it. There were two owners.

The original owner bought this Wagoneer new in 1966 to tow his Airstream trailer. He was from Florida. In 1967 he repainted the Wagoneer a silver green color to match his Airstream.

In 1968, Carmen Manzardo, a well-known sprint car racer from Illinois, bought the Wagoneer and drove it occasionally in nice weather until 1989. He then parked it.

A broker acquired it in 2015 and repainted the Jeep back to its original Glacier White color. They also repainted the valve covers, intake manifold, and air cleaner to match their factory colors. The bias ply tires may be original.
