AMCs were Battlecars straight off the line.
Mom had a amc eagle for a few years growing up it had battlecar vibes
And what an amazing backdrop. Is that in SLC?
google maps says there’s a “utah dance artists” (UDA) at 11010 and s redwood rd... looks like south jordan SLC 🕵🏻♂️
Man I used to have an eagle wagon. Loved that car.
I had the "civilized" cousin, the Concord coupe. Complete with Landau roof and opera lights. "25th Anniversary Edition," try not to laugh.
At the time I hated that car but, I beat the living crap out of it for 40k miles and it still ran great the day I sold it. That transmission was f'n indestructible. Believe me, I tried.
Fun fact, the owner's manual has instructions for an optional AM/FM CB Radio. "We got a great big convoy..."
Not only is it a BattleCar, but it is a COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) BattleCar.
I had an 81 SX4, wish I hadn't sold it.
AMC Eagle SX/4 Sport: the best production vehicle EVER!!!
AMC made the original battle wagons
Buddy of mine had an '82. Got the cylinders bored out and put a 4 barrel carb on it. Fun!
The AMC is the original battlecar! Perfect with little modification.
Wow, that looks like 100% fun. Parking by feel is a huge bonus.
Hey that’s in South Jordan
Man I miss AMC so much. They were willing to go out on a limb with designs like this while other car companies just went with the trends. That and their inline engines were the stuff.
In Canada they were called AMC spirit
The [Spirit](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_Spirit#/media/File:1979_AMC_Spirit_GT_V8_Russet_SL.jpg) was the 2wd version of this SX/4, as the Concord sedan and wagon were to the longer Eagles. There was also a stubby [Eagle Kammback](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_Eagle#/media/File:AMC_Eagle_Kammback_two-door_sedan_WI.jpg) based on the Spirit 'sedan', which was a Gremlin with larger side windows in the same way that the Concords were facelifted Hornets. AMC was always good at incorporating last night's leftovers into tonight's dinner.
This one is actually a badass! These Eagles set up right run off-road with the Jeepers!
Man I love Utah.
The Eagle Sport/coupe was always the best body style. The proportions are so perfect. Modern CUVs are trying to ape that look, but they just can't pull it off because the beltline is too tall, the pillars are too thick, and the ground clearance is too low. THIS is what a compact "CUV" should look like.
I want the sx4 so bad man it's my dream
I always wanted one when I was younger (early 2000’s). I saw the Eagle wagons every so often in my price range, but never found an SX/4 for the few hundred dollars I was willing to pay for a car back then. I had heard some negativity about the vacuum-driven 4WD system, but I don’t know if that was because it was foreign to the people that said such things, and anything different scared them. Can anybody here confirm or deny this?
