There is a very unique Eagle wagon on eBay right now - it has a front bench seat.  I've heard rumors of some special model Eagles having bench seats, like some corporate models or US government models but never saw anything definitive.  I suppose this bench seat could have been swapped in but it looks like it belongs there.  Also notable is the lack of woodgrain on the dash other than the radio pod.

hello and welcome! nice Eagle. Looks like you have the Gronk carb update. As for lifts , I personally don't recommend them, but lots of others here do. I would just mount a set of smaller tires until all other issues are resolved, good luck, gz

I made the unwise choice of buying someone else's project car, but here I am, the proud owner of a 1982 AMC eagle! I really need some help though. It seems to run OK, except for a loss of power at a certain RPM. It has had a carb swap, and from lurking on this forum, i'm pretty sure it's the motorcraft 2150. I have no idea on how to tune it so if anyone can point me to a guide, that would be awesome! It also has some really big tires on it that rub a bit when going over bumps, so I would like to see if I can give it a little lift as well. The end goal is a fun, funky off road machine!


edit: how do I post pics? edit: Nevermind.

We don't "need" to sell it but I hate to just have it sitting around outside my house since I don't have inside storage for it.  We may just take a loss on it if the right buyer comes along.  I definitely won't sell it to some kid that wants to tear it up.  It's still my wife's daily driver for now.
Ebay may be the way to go with this one but I've never sold anything on ebay before.  I'll post up what we decide to do.

welcome and that is a nice wagon dude.  I also have an 80 wagon but is nowhere near as nice as yours is. If if you want to see what it looks like click the link below in my post. BTW I'm in southern Colorado in the Pueblo area.

Yeah i cant wait to get those on there. Just saving the tsls tread till i get to the rockies. With the aluminum wheels they are lighter than what i have on and i will be shedding 3 tires worth of weight and since the swampers are a touch smaller i should pick up a lil pep from the old bird.  I also plan to do all the ford upgrade ignition parts tommorrow in minneapolis. We also are getting a windshield replacement tommorrow. We have a nice crack up the drivers side.  Here are some pictures we took lately. Enjoy!

Well, I was enjoying keeping up with what you did to it. Too bad you need to sell it but I hope it works out for you.

I would put it on eBay with a reserve for what you paid for it and see what happens. Make sure you make it so the auction ends on like a Saturday evening so there's a better chance of a larger audience. For some reason the low mileage ones seem to sell for more on eBay.

So even though we have only had it about 6 months... we are considering selling our Eagle.  Basically, my wife is bored with it and wants to start a new project.  I don't know what a 1983 AMC Eagle with 48K original miles is even worth but I know what I paid for it.  $5300
It's such a good car that I hate to let it go but I just can't justify keeping it around if it's not going to be a daily driver. 
So let me ask the experts... what's a fair price for this car if I decide to put it on ebay or old car trader?
A few things about it...
48K original miles
cold AC
Nice original interior with no rips
PML aluminum valve cover
new mud tires

Hey vangremlin !

Stupid me, I was looking for the 'Like' button... I think I'm still on Facebook.... geezz...

Went to EM's place last night, got a metal valve cover, a re-core'd rad, and a gasket that I hope fits.  it's about the right year for the head, so finger's crossed.

I'll get some pics asap.
