My new 81 Eagle
« on: August 20, 2017, 09:01:17 PM »
I just got myself a new 1981 amc Eagle. She is a beauty. I found hr sitting in a junkyard about to be scrapped when I bought it. I'm planning to restore her and then some.
I'm a newbie to Eagles and appreciate any and all help people have.I couldn't figure out how to add a picture on these forums.

Yes, extremely interesting. Either someone took the time to take the flares off and fill in all the holes or this is some super duper rare Eagle that was ordered with a flare delete, if that was even possible.

yes I would verify this is an eagle and not a spirit with eagle emblems,
of course if it was a spirit converted to an eagle that would be cool also

If you zoom in on the rear fender I believe you can see divots where the flare holes were filled.
