As soon as I get the 727 swapped into mine, I'll roll it out of the garage for pics. Been too sick for almost a year to do it by myself. Discovered my high bloodpressure was caused by bad teeth!

I'm in Seattle and I have a 1981 sx4.
ANYBODY around that can help/recommend with a resto.
Not frame off but some body work, want new black interior, new steering column/dash/gauges, and of course new seals all around, also upgrade the rear window to have defrost and maybe the wiper. fuel injection upgrade. I'll prob go to Dean Transmission for the going thru of the tc, tranny, and axles.

I just found a NP229 for my Eagle (Hoping to sell a NP208 and/or the current NP129 or other Jeep/Ford/IH/Dodge/Chev parts to finance it) ;)
Don't know any interior places yet, but I get my trans done by Sea-Tac trans when I don't have time/energy to do my own.
   Randy's Ring/Pinion in Everett handles the diff work. Haven't stumped them yet.

...resto. Not frame off but some body work...

Ok, Olymunch I just cant resist... That's a good thing as I'm of the mind that a "frame off" might just be going the wrong way on restoring your car...;)

81 Wagon currently undergoing an engine rebuild, and complete suspension and brake system replacement. I live in Seattle. I'm spending more on the car now than I did to purchase and maintain it the last ten years, but I like it so much that it is going to be well worth it.

I was down in Westport yesterday and spotted an Eagle in a carport just off the main drag (parallel to 105) When I pointed it out, my wife just rolled her eyes.

ok all you locals... hoping to see you guys stop by the Cascade Ramblers booth at Monroe Swap Meet in May.

MAY 19 TO MAY 20 (SAT-SUN) MONROE SWAP MEET, Evergreen State Fairgrounds, Monroe WA -

I know it says "Rambler" in the club name.... but we have later AMC's as well, me mostly, but alot of members are 70's and up AMC's including plenty of Eagles. We are all inclusive when it comes to American Motors!!!
and if you need a part for your car... don't be afraid to ask.

My wagon is back on the road. New motor and suspension rebuild and she drives like a new car.

Be on the lookout, I live just north of downtown in Seattle and use the car for occasional trips to the south end. It is my winter car for obvious reasons...great traction, great heater!

I saw a kammback parked in a front yard in Thorp, WA (just a few miles west of Ellensburg) awhile back when I was visiting family. Same house used to have a matador parked in the same spot.
