Shouldn't be stock to an Eagle.  If it is AMC logo'd then it would be from a Renault from that era.

well i was goofing around today with eagle eyes key in survivor's ignition and it turned, i found out the stock radio, the fan, the digital clock, and the starter all work correctly. the engine turned over smoothly but with no fuel wouldn't start, no surprise there. i'll be going to get some gas tomorrow and see if she'll start, so please everyone pray to the AMC gods that she does.
