I had been talking with someone in Michigan several years ago about buying one that he had, but decided not to go through with the purchase.  Never actually saw it in person.

I installed some of these back in my dealership days.   American Air was the "official" aftermarket kit installed at AMC dealers; with replacement parts even included in the AMC factory parts manuals.   They were year/model/engine specific tho; so adapting one that wasn't originally meant for an Eagle would probably be more trouble than its worth.

On a side note; American Air also made the 1902 Rambler Replica I have (built in 1960).   They also made 1901 Olds replicas.
