Took the sedan to this show Sat.. Almost left early, Leg wasn't happy. I figured the only class it fit in was "Classic Car up to 2002", so that was what I went with. They started doing the awards & only had 1st & 2nd place. I didn't figure I was gonna get anything anyway & when they called 2nd place for the class, I was getting ready to load my walker to leave when they called my number! Shocked me, I NEVER expected that. I KNOW there were a couple Mustangs there & a couple Chargers (1 '69 & 1 was *GUESSTIMATED* '71 - '73 body style) that I would've expected to beat me!

Adapter plate that lets a larger battery fit in the tray by raising the battery out of the tray and putting the edge guards another 1/4" out. It does however require rubber covers on the battery cables so they don't touch the hood.
SOLD / Re: Rear defrost switch for 86 Eagle

Well I thought I'd post a followup. I eventually found an NOS rear defrost switch on eBay, bought it and I'm good now. I actually got a decent deal I think, $34 including shipping.

The part number is J3240660 by the way you can setup alerts so you can be notified if one comes available in the future, that's the trick that worked for me.

Another good video from the "Rare Classic Cars & Automotive History" YouTube channel.  Kind of a high-level run-through of the Eagle's history, launch and evolution over its brief life.

I like these factual videos that actually delve into the histories of the decisions that drove these cars into (and out of) production, rather than the "car p0rn" first-start and rag-on videos that are typically all we see of Eagles now.  These latter types of videos negate the fact that there were plenty of people that actually cared about these cars when they were built, and the dumbed-down "oh, AMCs were just piles of other manufacturer's parts" drivel just gets old.  Monday-morning quarterbacking gets real easy with 40+ years of hindsight!

Sure that's not a NP129?  I see a shift lever there.  Try moving the shift lever fully one way or another, it could definitely make that noise if it's partially engaged.

Not truly an AMC but nice article about the Hudson Hornet. The writer is probably in his 80s but continues to review cars for the Denver Post. He’s been doing it forever!
Eagle Road Trips / Rollinsville Yacht Club 2022
« Last post by vangremlin on September 25, 2022, 09:22:54 PM »
It was time for the annual trip to the Rollinsville Yacht Club near Rollinsville, Colorado, elevation 8,671’. As usual, there was my wife and I in an Eagle ( the two door sedan) and a bunch of fancy cars - Corvettes, Porsches, a Ferrari, an old school Road Runner, and a Firebird.   Also a Fiero and old Bronco this year.

The weather was great and it was nice to catch up with old friends. The Eagle performed great, it was bogging down on a couple hills but a short downshift allowed us to pick up some speed. There was only one steeper hill where that strategy didn’t help much and we just shouted out lots of encouragement to make it up the hill lol.

I have a 1981 AMC eagle wagon I need axle I'm wondering if a axle out of a 1965  Rambler/AMC torque tube rear end would work and 1965  Rambler/AMC torque tube rear end  what the length of the axles are and spline count
