1979 wagoneer- used in LONGMIRE

Postby Abqwagoneer85 » Fri Aug 03, 2018 12:56 pm

So I lucked out and happen to live in the ABQ area where the TV series Longmire was filmed. Some keen eyes may have seen the Wagoneer used by the tribal Chief of Police in season 3.

Well, some even keener minds might ask, what happened to it? Well the production company got rid of it and i happened to be at the local wrecker at the right time to pick it up.

The good: nice patina tan with no major rust on the outside, 360v8 th400 and QT TC all unmolested very greasy and original. Dana 44 up front , AMC 20 rear- 3.31 gears. Has over 115k miles i believe. Cool aluminum factory mag slot looking rims with tires that hold air. Manual locks and windows but working power heated tailgate window, AC and roof rack. Clear NM title in hand. I mean every piece is under the hood down to the air pump and hoses, emissions, cat converter and air cleaner etc. Brakes work but just when pushing it around so cant really tell. Lights all work. Even has center caps (which I may want). Only missing the tailgate lock cylinder and windshield molding. Tailgate motor works great from inside switch.

The bad: somebody took a piece of sheetmetal to the front drivers floor so there is some rust there. Very clean from the frame and undercarriage standpoint though. A wrinkled bit fixable passenger fender. Some mice poop here and there ( was some more but I cleaned it out). Interior is a little worn but very very tan and very presentable. It has the aluminum round headlight grille on it with square lights which looks a little weird.

The ugly: apparently the 360 gave up the ghost during a movie shoot as it is locked up. No "windows" in the block but internally something has stopped it. Trans should still be good and TC has the low range kit on it.

This thing is very cool to look at and possibly ride. I got it with the motor locked up from the yard but trans fluid is nice and red.

I want to sell it as i have gone to a later model and a LS swap project. I couldnt bear to part it out given its lineage but it needs to go. I would like to get $1600 firm for it with the caps, but I want some opinions here- is that fair given its completeness and its history with Longmire? I can get a letter from the producer too- he is a friend of my friend. Consoder this an ad for sale- and feel free to PM me for info.

Ps i would put pics in bit ots not letting me so PM me I guess? and i can email them to you. I wish there was a way here for all to see but it wont let me.

Thanks!

So that price is negotiable BTW. Caps would go with it. Again i cant bear to separate it all. I can do the engine work and either replace with a long block or rebuild it if someone wants it done but they would have to cover parts and a reasonable amount of labor.
Thanks for looking!

I did the same. I have some pics but will be getting more today or tomorrow. Let me know what you need specifically.

Only rust i see is some in the flat part of that driver side floorboard where someone put a piece of metal over it. Only appears to be the flat part too- the rails on the body that touch the rubber body mounts are all fine. Rest is pretty nice with grease, dirt, and scratches here and there.

There are some good parts on this wagon too- almost wanted to part it out but just couldn't.
Thanks for looking!

Im guessing no interest. Anybody want to tell me what is making folks nervous? I think my price is good. Im now tempted to look around for a nice running 360 to go in it and replace it and just keep the jeep.

I'm about to start a new job up in Denver. My time and budget are pretty much shot.

And I have to deal with the engine overheating problems in my truck.

I need a new project vehicle like I need another hole in my head.

Still, I would give it some serious consideration... Nope. Nope. Can't. Too many irons in the fire.... :banghead: Can you send pictures? :idea:

$$$ lack of money and too many irons in the fire! Trying to redo a 79 J10 and a 80 J20 at the same time currently.

Yep i heard that. I have an 84 an 85 and this 79 in my court. That and a 65 Sport Fury that has been totally neglected due to my recent foray into the Just Empty Every Pocket brand :D

Its still here. It might get an engine, it might not. Since that is all it needs, i might get ahead of things when its cooler and do the swap but price would have to increase. I keep looking at it and just liking it more and more....

Wow that's 6 hours from me. And my sister lives there. And i was just thinking about making a trip maybe there for Labor day. And i need to go see her...Too many coincidences? Lol!

I would be very glad to send you pics if you can PM me your email. I even have a pic from a gentleman who has identiifed markings on the tailgate against footage from the show- he corrected me on who actually drove it in Longmire!

I was able to locate this wagon on vehical movie site. it come up as a 1970. I think that is because of the front grill. the square patch on the tail gate was a bumper sticker that read casiNO. I was interested in this wagon because I have a low milage 401 that has been sitting in my garage for the last 14 years. the trip to pick this wagon up is 1600 miles round trip, and about $460 in fuel. I do not have the time to do this right now. If it still around in October I will be in touch. One thing - it looks like the drive shafts are laying on the pasenger floor, why is that?

Driveshafts are from my 85 I am working on. The ones to this 79 one are in place and functional. Those will be taken out along with some of the other parts I'm storing in there for the 85. Sorry for any confusion! It will be vacuumed out for the new owner! :D

If it is still here by then by all means give me a shout.

Ps- you are correct about that bumper sticker- the production company wiped it clean (rather than peeling it off) before parting ways to avoid any political issues. I have a photo that shows 3 or 4 distinct scratches and rub marks that match the exact rear shot that was on the tv show. A gentleman compared them for me and sent it over. Another reason why I would love to post images here but the page locks me out of it. :banghead:

To be clear, those driveshaft STORED inside will be removed, NOT the ones installed and in place ready. The 79 will be whole in that regards! Sorry about that :D

Wow. So many lookers but not a lot of interest. Anybody know why? Please advise- it won't hurt my feelings...

Location and/or lack of $ I would guess. If only I could win the lottery......
