Iowa Eagle's SX/4
« on: May 08, 2004, 11:40:00 PM »
My Eagle is a 1982 SX/4 Sport.  It was sold new on May 24, 1982 by Zimmerman AMC/Jeep/Renault located in Freeport, Illinois.  Sticker price was $10,480.00.  I purchased it last August, from the original owner for $1,000.  At that time it had just about 66,000 miles on it.  As far as I can tell the car has not had any mods done to it and is the way it was when first delivered. Since my purchase I have replaced all the tires; replaced the torque converter and flex plate; replaced the passenger side half shaft; reinstalled the original AM/FM radio; and resealed the valve cover.  Presently the 4WD does not work as the vacuum lines need to be replaced, however the Transfer Case and vacuum motors do all work.   

Modifications --

None

Future Plans --

Work to be done this spring/summer:  Replace hatch lifts; replace right side hinges (spares came with car); repaint car to original colors; and renew 4wd vacuum lines and engine vacuum lines.

And here is the line setting (build sheet) ticket.  It is in real poor shape and very fragile.

Here is what I said in another post last week:  First fill-up since I removed pump its plumbing and some other smog related stuff.  Guessing about 70% Highway and 30% City and AC about 1/2 time.  341 miles/13.3 gallons = 25.64 mpg.  Which is a mile and 4 tenths off my previous highway only mpg (27), with no AC -- so I think the next all highway trip should net 29-30 or maybe even better with a tail wind.    Heck there are not too many 2WD cars that you can get for that price -- but in '82 that was a lot of money for a mderately optioned out car.  And, $208 for a push button AM/FM radio -- of course you did get four $5.00 speakers with that.

Thanks, those pictures are old and one paint job ago.  Think there are some newer ones lurking around here somewhere.

Thanks, it looks somewhat different since those early pix were taken.  SX/4's are around just need to keep on the look out for one.

You mean they were around until a couple of our members who shall be nameless (but you know who you are!) started trying to corner the market.
Just joking.  Keep checking here.  Some will turn up.

They seem to pop up in waves.  I wonder how many actually still exist.

Original colors should be pretty sweet! Engine bay still silver?
Is it white in the current pics?

The first picture was at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Des Moines (approx 200 cars) and the second at Duffy's Collectible Cars in Cedar Rapids (approx 150 cars).  Duffy's gave us AMC'ers probably the best spot of anybody.
