It looks real sharp on a wagon!! Iv seen one in that color combination before. If I recall correctly it was a Sport cuz it had the blacked out trim. Black and silver sure look good together and a red pinstripe really makes those colors pop!! The only thing is though the interior would almost have to  be black or grey to look right.

...You thinking of doin a a color change on your Eagle Don?

The red accent stripe was found on all Sport models except those painted red.  They left their accents silver.

All the red ones I have seen used the standard "chrome" inserts.  Never have seen a factory black one, but guessing they are the same way.

I might be wrong but I think AMC actually clad the bumpers in some kind of black material as the finish is extremely durable.  To include multiple deer proof.
