My Concords
« on: July 28, 2020, 04:08:52 PM »
I bought some years ago a 4 door Concord as a parts car for my Eagles. (It was 2011...) No papers, no finnish ID...



I used a lot of it to save my second Eagle, that with V8....

And just a few weeks ago happened something you do not want to your enemies... Car crash with your classic AMC...

And now it happened that this crashed Concord landed to my garage...




I have to mention that they never sold any Concords as new here in Finland... Our AMC importer Wihuri sold their last AMC passenger cars mid seventies... So these (among a couple of others) are private import. Red one came to Finland about mid nineties and black Limited 1983... It was a two owner car...

Yes, that was a survivor Concord... No rust, low mileage, good condition. And one owner 1981 to 2010.

Front of the roof is badly damaged, so I´m going to use a piece of sheet metal from a Hornet.

This has been in Finland since 1999. It came from Florida.
It was sold to someone, but it took 7 years before it got finnish plates. (2006)
He drove it 10 years and stored it. (2016)...

And then it suddently it was for sale three hours away from me!
I saw it 2006 (when I sold front suspension parts) and got intrested.... It took only 15 years to get it.  :blob1:

BTW: Sundancers were never sold here in Europe... I have not seen any other than this one here "old continent" If there is another I´d like to see a pic of it....

You always have the BIGGEST projects ...! :o I recall an Eagle wagon (white) a few years back, not quite THIS bad. Was that Eagle the one you put a V-8 in?
'83 AMC Eagle wagon 258/auto.
'84 AMC Eagle sedan (4 door) 258/auto.
PREVIOUS AMCs:
'72 Gremlin X 304/3 speed
'81 Eagle Kammback 258/4 speed (Purchased new)
'82 Eagle wagon 258/5 speed (Ordered new, traded Kammback)
'86 (I THINK) Eagle wagon - BlackBird 258/auto. (Got hit/totaled)
'83 Eagle wagon - White Eagle 258-auto. (Front subframe was rotted out - sold for parts)

I drove most of the summer with my Sundancer. Some car meets and such...

Yes, that V8 Eagle was before white.. three times crashed original finnish Eagle that spent most of its time on Åland Islands and in Sweden...

Are those projects BIG... that´s the question...  I have had some talks about Bricklin... crashed 40 years ago... most of body parts missing... among others... That is a BIG project...

BTW: you haven´t seen my 2d LS-engined RWD Cherokee yet...

Before...
