My 82 Concord DL
« on: April 11, 2012, 01:46:40 PM »
OK so.. I've been on and off of here for quite a while and I just found out you have a Concord Spirit section now.. so here is the link to the pictures to my 1982 AMC Concord. I'm 36 years old.. I've had this car since I was 17 years old. It spent the better part of the last 10 years sitting still... about 5 years ago... I finally got around to getting it running but it still needs some serious work. I am hoping to do a 4.0 head swap, the TFI upgrade, Clifford intake and MC 2100/50 carb in the near future.

Enjoy

Nice Concord.

Are those the original 14 inch wheels with a hubcap over them? What size tires do you have on there?
I have an 81 Concord, and would like to get some white letter tires, but can't seem to find the stock size tire in white letter form.

Thank you for the compliment.

Yes those are the original rims. From what I remember BFG no longer makes that tire in that size anymore. The tires in the picture have been with that car since about 2000... so the tires themselves are at least 12 years old... I got them just before I went to college in Florida and that is why it got parked. It sat in my mom's garage until 2007.

EDIT:
I just looked up the tire on Jegs and they do have the tire in a 14.. but I think the stock tire was P195/70R14 but they only have it in a 205, 215, 225 & 235.

Thanks for the link.

I believe there are 2 different sizes that were approved by AMC. One of them is P195/75/R14 (thats what I currently have, and mine are from 1997, so I'm due for new tires) and I think the other was P205/70/R14 which that site does list with white letters.
