Unique, first crossover


Uhhh... helooo... AMC!


A Great Car Project To Put In Modern Engine And Drivetrain. — I called it "THE BEAST" It was big, bad, and ugly. 4000lbs. doesn't stop quickly compared to modern cars, especially in the snow. I haven't gotten stuck except for once when off roading in 2WD because 4WD was not working at some point. I'll get another one someday and fix it up properly. This one had a new motor, but the tranny

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great 4WD and Handling,


Still could end up with a Eagle that wasn't well maintained, causing it to have very poor Performance.


'82 Amc Eagle Sport "official Rodeo Car" — The acceleration for my eagle is a 0-60 in about 14-15 secs and thats quite good for 4800lbs. After first repairs its really cheap. The Handling is excellent for its weight. Sure the car doesn't look for being in several winters and for being 27 years old, but it won't get stuck in anything that stays below its front bumper. Wish i had the money to completely rebuild it from the ground up. Choose it over any new light weight cars out there now. Wish it had a more powerful engine, looking better or EFI, but still an excellent car to drive.

It Was Definitely Worth The $400 I Paid By Ozzie

Performance- The inline six is a great engine, but its still not a racecar, It does light four wheeling alright, but without 4 low or solid axles its not quite as capable as I would like. The 4wd op... Read More

A Unique Classic By Pallance

I love this car, its unique shape and style, coming from a jeep background with a rugged inline6. The biggest problem of course, is time and money to repair/rebuild it ... it IS over twenty years old!... Read More
