Thanks.  Overall, it is pretty clean and straight.  I took off the Keystone Raiders and went back to the factory wheel covers.  I like the stock look of these sedans.

I finally finished rebuilding the heater box, installing different tires and wheels, and polishing the paint this weekend.  I think the Concord looks much happier now:

Thanks for the compliments!  In the early 80s, one of the local AMC dealers had an identical one in the showroom and I spent a lot of time looking at it and wanting it.  When this one came for sale, I had to snatch it up.

That is a sweet looking Concord.  I have looked at a couple around here.  Always wanted a 2 door.  Nice work.
