Im glad to see that some of these cars are fetching a prettier penny. Even AMC's ugly ducklings the Pacer and Gremlin are starting to become collectable to some degree. Trends are definatly shifting towards moms grocery getter. 20 years ago almost no one would have considered restoring a old wood panel family wagon. My generation was post muscle car. My childhood car memories are of  little econo-boxes when a Chevy nova was little more than a rebadged toyota. When I sit in an eagle Its like im transported back in time.

I'll second that statement.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

I wish eagles would have come out in the 79' model year...Maybe we would have had a Silver Anniversary Eagle.

Production for Eagles did start in 1979.  Mine was built in early December.  Its just about to turn to 50,000 original miles.  Its a dream to drive after some final chassis, exhaust and carburetor work.  Alex Wade

Thats awesome....You got one of the first ones...The last Eagle built is accounted for...I often wonder if the first one may still be in existance.

I was on that evil auction site tonight and I found one of these bad boys for sale on there. It looks to be in good condition, but the post says needs a full restoration...It definatly needs some degree of restoration but when i think of a full restoration I think of a rolling chasis with the drive train in  the trunk....this one certainly has potential especially for the price...Concords are so much easier to work with not having all the complicated 4x components our eagles have....and they are every bit as beautiful too.

Sorry. Fixed.

 

An Automotive Blogger compared her AMC Concord to a new Hyundai Sonata. Love it!
