Graph on total Eagles production.
« on: August 03, 2010, 11:11:35 PM »
Here's a graph I made just so I could keep track of eagle production totals.

I converted it to a .jpg, but it's a working excel graph, so I can make changes, if someone wants to update any info.

Wow, for some reason I figured there were more Eagles produced. I never paid attention to the production numbers. Thanks for the graph.

I will have to check on '87 for you.  I think the first number is the generally accepted one for that year.  But, I will double check my sources.

Sure, I took the numbers off the site and I think the Eaglepedia.  I took all the info about the years that was listed, and put it into a graph so I could view the totals.  Showed it to Mechanic, and he suggested I post it.

I will, and I can update this pic no problem.  Can someone give me the specs on that?  years made, amounts, etc (if you know), stuff like that.  Is there any other Eagles (besides the turbo diesel) that I haven't listed?

IIRC 5 Turbo Diesels were purported to have been created.  I have also heard 7 and 8 mentioned, but 5 is the most often seen number.  Likewise 2 door Eagle/Concord conversions are not known either.  I have heard total between the two between 200 - 500; with reportedly most being Eagles.  Griffith Industries is no longer in business and no confirmation or estimate is available from them.   Given their uniqueness you would think a large proportion of those converted would still exist but we have only accounted for a handful.  There are some dealer and regional models but they are part of the general totals we already have.   Three that seem to have been sold were "Limited Ediitions"; "Special Editions" and "SX/Flyers"; and I believe all are SX/4 variations.

Sure, if you want, PM me your email, and I'll send you the working copy so you can alter it as needed.  I really only made it so I could use it to compare the totals, and I made it into a .jpg to send to a non-member to show him the totals.

Never saw that before.  Thanks for posting that.  I took a copy of that page to keep.  anyone wanting that page converted into .pdf form, I can do that.

His and our numbers on the totals for the Kammback, the 2 door, and the 4 door match.  and some of the production year numbers match.  don't forget, I took this from our numbers that members or admins posted.

Looks like his site hasn't been updated since about 1999.  and he does state that his number are 'more or less'.

Yes, I need to get in touch with him, again, to see if we can archive his info.  I think he said he could, but now I forget.

The figures I got say that there were only 3 Eagle Sundancer Convertibles made and about 200 Concord Sundancer Convertibles, and no I can't confirm that, but they are the best figures I'm aware of. LRDaum

We have seen more than 3 different Eagle Sundancer's here, either for sale or in the hands of members.  I too have heard the 200 figure for the Concords with the Eagle number being higher.  But of course, no confirmation on any of those figures.

...I wonder why the SX/4 dropped in interest so much

so, with the #'s you posted, how do i find out how RARE an '83 sx4 is that has power locks, and a rear wiper? i havent even seen pics of an sx4 with a rear wiper....
  I have seen an SX/4 with a rear wiper, but I must say I don't think very many were produced.  I would say that's pretty rare, as for numbers...you got me...no clue, but I would say pretty rare indeed...

I have seen them with rear wipers, Not sure about the power locks.

I don't think you are ever gonna find out just how rare this or that model is with this or that options.  AMC kept poor records on those things.

Too bad, huh?

Being as sporty as they were Im kinda suprised that they didnt grab more interest too. As far as early 80's body styles went I think they were just as sporty as the mustangs, Z cars, and supras of the time. 8)

1987 seems to be the one with the most descrepancies. I've seen totals of 4546, 4564, and 5203 and now these.
My table differs with the 81 SX4s - 17340 vs 17390 and 85 wagons - 13535 vs 13353. Typos?

Im sure AMC took most of its records "to the grave"...especially the variant vehicle records....Ill bet there is a former AMC pencil pusher somewhere who could help us out but god knows where he or she is.

Ain't that the truth...  I wouldn't be surprised if you were right on, but in order to 'find' this person, I bet we'd almost have to resort to running TV/radio/billboard ads to find them.

It's kinda sad, and exciting at the same time.   Not knowing the info is kinda sad, but if we could discover it, (find this 'pencil pusher') boy oh boy, would that be exciting...  Well, it would be great.......  helpful........ interesting...........


Ok, I need to start going outside more.   I hear it's summer out now, is that true?    :rotfl:

I have always heard that AMC did not keep track of the different ways cars were equipped/optioned out.  Even the various trim lines, in the later years, appeared to not have been recorded.  It would be great information to have though if indeed those records were still stored somewhere. 

1983 was the last year that AMC had a two door version of any of their home grown models.  All that remained was the SX/4 and its 2WD counterpart.   Interestingly, the sales of the Spirit model were over double the number actually produced in '83.  AMC must have had one heck of a sale on the left over '81's.  AMC had planned to produce an '84 SX/4 but we all know that did not happen.
