Default 1968 Wagoneer

Hey guys, so I have a 94 Grand Cherokee. I really like the wagoneers a lot. There is a guy, in the Charlotte NC area, selling a 1968 waggy for about 1k. Its in ok shape but its missing the rear tail gate. Does anyone know if that would impossible to find a replacement? I looked around and couldn't find one so thats probably not a good sign. Also, are these bad years? Do they have that axle disconnect(?) issue? Thanks for any insight!

I don't know about where to find a tailgate, or about axle disconnect, but it sounds like a good price if its in ok shape.
I've owned a couple wagoneers in the past. The older the better. The newer ones added bells and whistles that just complicated things when they didn't work. The body style didn't change for years and years and they are built like tanks. I ran one into a ditch going pretty fast in ice and snow, and almost rolled it on its side. A tow truck helped right it, and I drove it away with no damage.
One thing I remember is that the rear leaf springs on the older ones occasionally fatigued and they would sit low in the back -called Wag sag.
