That's sad. I understand they have to practice and all but anything other than an Eagle  :'(

Where are you/it located?
I see the rear bumper is somewhat bent, what does the other side look like?
Does it have both endcaps? I see the one on this bent end isn't there but maybe it's in the car somewhere?
And possible price & shipping price to 72837?

On an AMC? That should be the required initiation. Start with all the horrid Cherokees and Concords. ;)

I'm not sure if you can reach inside the car, but there is a piece of trim under the passenger side opera window that I really, really need.  Here is a picture of it on the drivers side, its the woodgrain style piece shown in the picture below.  Thanks 

Somebody may want the front bumper ends and the trim and plastic moulding around the front wheels.

Maybe the tail lights,front fender marker lights and door sills all look to be in decent shape. Other then that not much left.

HEY ! make a rat rod or a bush buggy out of it. But really seems like a dumb thing to do to such a rare car when you consider that there are any number of other subjects to use for the purpose.
I would have been more than happy to give them something else in exchange as I want a coupe instead of the wagon I now have.
 Life just isn't fair !

OH well, happy Eagle-ing everyone.   ;D

It probably had a simple wiring problem or broken converter neck and the PO (Previous Owner) got mad at it.

     Hello, That's a 1980 with the automatic 4WD transfer case ...  I see rear axles ,wheels ,front and rear bumpers, tail lights, a good driver side head light fixture and side marker light ..... there is a boat load of parts that need to be salvaged before it's towed away ... probably lots of interior parts that can be saved also.

Did someone pull the front diff or just the axles?

Big thanks to rmick for posting this thread and for grabbing the trim piece I needed.  I never in a billion years thought I would actually be able to get that little piece of trim so I'm very thankful that rmick was able to get it for me.  Thanks again and thumbs up to you!!
