My 'rig'/DD

1984 AMC Eagle Sport Wagon
258, bored .030
Originally an AK car. No Rust, very few cosmetic problems on the exterior.

Short term plans are a 1" coil spacer in the front (2" lift at the wheels) and blocks in the rear. Should allow me to squeeze into the smallest AT that BFG makes. If anyone knows of another Manuf. that makes a smaller AT please share.

Eventually I want to pick up an NP229 with paddle shifter from a Waggy. It is the best direct replacement of the 129 the car currently has and net me low gear.

Long term goal is an SAS

I have several things to fix on the interior. Most of them minor. If anyone sees or knows of some junk yards that have these please let me know. I am in need of a few parts.

Awesome! I'd love to find me one, but I should spend my money a bit more wisely. Still - it would be an awesome townie car for trips into Howell.

Good job of finding a AZ car

Thanks,

There is another for sale if you want info. I was going to get it but could not pass on the all black sport wagon.

Its from Alaska, not arizona. Built in Ontario(brampton?). From my understanding they don't use salt up there. It has been in Michigan for 10 years I believe. The PO was restoring it until he was sidelined with an injury. He used it as a summer cruising vehicle, so it has seen very little salt here as well.
