If it has the original transmission, then it is not a lock up in '88.  If your Eagle was #2076 in '88 then it was one of the last ones built as the generally accepted total for '88 was 2,306.  Although at AMC the sequence number is not always a good indicator of when a car was actually finished as the number was assigned to a car when it was ordered and they were not built in the sequence of the order number.  What does the door date sticker say as the build date?

Yup, you have one of the last ones.   From the sounds of it, a well preserved one as well.
