I think the link to the amxfiles is a bit dead now.
Thanks to the AMC VIN decoder, my Eagle is free of road tax (+25 years old) since Juli 1st.
It was first put on the road in 1987, and that was on the title.
So I proved that it was made between August 1982 and Juli 1983, and they accepted.
Made a letter for Debby Zaleska too and that was accepted as well.

Hmmm, that is too bad.  Guess we will have to link to our own AMC Eaglepedia.

Error from the authors of the chart.    AMC had two door wagons, but not of the Eagle variety.

Automatic transmission with a transfer case that you can use on any road service in either mode.  All Eagles were so equipped.
