Finished in desirable Sarge Green, (Code PGG), a colour unique to the Wrangler Anniversary Edition. This heroic example presents beautifully and is further unique in the fact that it has covered just 9,901 miles from new. The story of this Jeep gets increasingly interesting as the second of just two owners is the Proprietor of a Zoo which is privately owned yet open to the public. The owner has an eclectic collection of approximately 100 classic cars and this Jeep formed a part of the collection for some day-to-day tours in and around the zoo park and was a star attraction! The rugged body is in excellent condition and there are some small paintwork imperfections throughout, visible only on close inspection. All elements of the Dual Top roof system are in good order and fully operational and the separate unused Black Sunrider Soft Top remains in its factory packaging. The Bronze finish exterior accents and special badges unique to the model are fully intact. A highly collectable example of this American icon.
Inside, the luxuriously appointed interior complements the special exterior. One of two colour schemes available, the Black leather-trimmed seats with embossed logo, ombre mesh insert and pearl accent stitching are clean and in good order and the interior retains all special styling features and 75th Anniversary accents. Critical scrutiny will note some slight hairline scratches to the hard plastic trim in high traffic/usage areas. There is a small surface slit to the driver’s side seat base, barely noticeable. The high-specification equipment, much of which came as standard on this special edition, is fully operational.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Under the bonnet lives a 2.8 CRD 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine with 197bhp and a thumping 460Nm of torque at just 1600rpm. A top speed of 107mph is quoted and 0-62mph in 10.6 seconds. Under the bonnet is clean and totally standard with factory labels intact. Mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox and command-trac shift-on-the-fly 4WD, this combination is at home both on and off-road.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Unique 18-inch bronze finish wheels are in excellent order with virtually no markings and the rims still wear factory fitted Bridgestone Dueller 255/70 R18 tyres showing plenty of tread. The rear mounted spare tyre has never been used and still has the coloured banding within the tread. The braking system is in fine working order.
The Jeep Wrangler’s design DNA and rugged appeal has remained loyal to its roots since the original Willys MA and Willys MB were born in 1941 and this 2016 model is a celebration of this achievement. Registered new on the 22nd October 2016 by Westover Jeep in Dorset, it has only had two owners from new. Prior to sale, the vehicle was booked into Jeep Main Dealer, Stoneacre in Peterborough, for a full service. Insistence by the owner for an absolute clean Vehicle Heath Check with an accompanying invoice in January 2024 to offer absolute piece of mind for the next custodian. A full leather Jeep holdall with all handbooks, service books, brochures and spare keys are present. This iconic legend is special in all respects, more so due to the rarity and low mileage credentials.
