1980 Eagle Coupe Denver
« on: June 16, 2012, 04:31:27 PM »
It was a sad sight to see this beauty in the junkyard.  1980 2 door coupe, 4 speed manual transmission, odometer read 19000 (but probably 119000) miles, no rust, minimal body damage, everthing was there. I picked up a few pieces including the Marschal fog lights (both housings good, missing one lense) and badges and as I was checking out the guy told me it had been a running car that came to them after an impound auction.  I sure wish I had found this one before it found its way into the yard   :'(

At one time it had the dealer installed air conditioning.  I was going to pull that out but at some point the evaporator box had been removed so not much to grab.

The manual transmission must have been a transplant.  All 1980 Eagles were automatics.

What color was the interior?

Heyyy, it looks red.  Maybe it's the red you're looking for.  Good luck Dean!

What a shame...as much as I like parts availability, its always painful to see one, especiay one that nice, in a salvage yard. Ill bet it was one of those no title deals that landed it there.

It's a shame to see a coupe looking this good being parted out.

If it has the SR4, I am sure someone will want the shifter.

Yes, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.  I don't really need them.

Egg-cellent save on the bumper caps dave  ;) I wonder what they would let that tranny and transfer case go for...I wouldn't mind having an extra set on hand just in case.

what shade of red is it?  is it the rare 'Wine' color?  Dean is looking for one or two interior parts in that color?
