Very cool brochure and pictures. I don't know if it's just the pictures or the way the cars were set-up, but the front ends seem really gappy between the bumper and grille.  :-\

There was quite a gap due to the recoverable bumpers and AMC not using any filler in front.

I really wish AMC would have carried the Concord hatchback over into 1980.  I would have liked to have seen it with the 80-and-up large wraparound taillights.

And who knows, we may have ended up with a sixth Eagle body style out of it, too.  An Eagle version of the Concord hatchback would have been a gorgeous car, especially decked out in Sport trim.
