Jeep® Heritage | 1966 Jeep Super Wagoneer

1966 Jeep Super Wagoneer

Each Friday on the Jeep® Blog, we explore the Jeep brand’s iconic heritage by highlighting a different historical vehicle. This week’s vehicle is the 1966 Jeep Super Wagoneer.


Look! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…it’s…the versatile and rugged 4×4 with premium, luxury sedan comfort…the 1966 Jeep Super Wagoneer!


For some people, features such as air conditioning, power tailgate, power brakes, and a seven-position tilt steering wheel might seem pedestrian. And they are, to a certain extent, nowadays. But those who’ve been around the block a little longer can remember just how new – and prestigious – those features were when the 1966 Jeep Super Wagoneer was introduced.



The Super Wagoneer was elegant, and its luxury features pointed to the future of the sport utility market. The MSRP of almost twice that of the base Wagoneer was justified, with standard features including:


  • Air conditioning
  • Power tailgate
  • Power brakes
  • Power steering
  • Seven-position tilt steering wheel
  • Tinted windows
  • Three-tone body striping
  • Vinyl roof
  • Padded vinyl roof with chrome roof-rack
  • Full wheel hubcaps
  • White-walled tires
  • 327-cubic-inch “Vigilante” four-barrel V8 engine (270 hp)
  • Console-shifted TH400 Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission


The tradition of building luxury SUVs with capability and premium features continues today with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Stay tuned to the Jeep Blog as we continue to look at the most important Jeep vehicles of the 1960s and beyond.

    Find me one. I need a project car that’s not all eaten out with rust.

    We have a 1995 Grand Cherokee. It has almost 200, 000 miles on it. Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year. Take care. GOD bless.

  3. Notice that this model does NOT have AC!
    And I should know, I own this very year in Indian Ceramic.

  4. I own a 1991 Jeep Cherokee limited with 153,000 miles and it still runs great. I will always own a Jeep.

  5. I own a 1990 Grand Wagoneer. I call him B.O.B the O.G. Bucket Of Bolts the OnGoing project. But man, I love it!

    I don’t want a 1990s model, I want a 1960s model–no later than ’72.

    may someone please help me find a filler neck for my 66 Jeep Super Wagoneer, thank you

  8. I have the 66 jeep wagoneer you are looking for, it has been driven in Arizona for the last 47 years so it has no rust not too many dents. all origonal interior, a 327 Amc motor and much, much, more. It could be restored and bring big bucks.

    I have a 1969 Jeep Super Wagoneer that is a bit rough but runs and drives – wouldn’t take her far from home though as she needs to be restored.

    It has the original running gear and looks pretty complete – it does have a 4 barrel carb and manifold off a 71 Buick Skylark sitting atop the original Buick 350 with the original Turbo 400 and transfer case. also has a set of after market mag wheels with decent raised white lettered something or rather tires mounted on them.

    These old Super Waggies are extremely rare – they don’t come up for sale very often so you’d be very lucky to even find one – even just to look at these days – is there anybody out there in Jeep land that has some factual production numbers for these – so far the highest number for the entire production run from 66 to 69 was around 3700 and the lowest was around 1200 for all the years – I even saw a number as low as 50 for the 1969 production year but these are just numbers I found online from people that seemed to know what they were talking about but I couldn’t reference them any where so they are just numbers floating around out there.

    It sure would be cool to find a Super Waggy club to join and maybe start a registry to kind of get a feel for how many of these still exist – can’t be too many that’s for sure. I guess who ever inherits mine will be the one that sells it unless someone were to make me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Most people I’ve run into at the gas station while driving this one around don’t know what they are and have never seen one before. It’s like driving around in a piece of Jeep history. I’d appreciate any feed back on this subject

  10. I have a 1966 jeep wagoneer and it will not start. When I try to turn the key all I hear is clicking noise. I have already replace the starter, and the silonode. Any suggestions?

    Just checked the VIN number on mine. #100007. Does that mean it’s the seventh one made for 1966?
