1982 AMC Other

Please Note: I had to re-list this due to the winning bidder, eBay ID - wic_us_tlde3tqe - claim that hewas onvacation and'someone must have hacked into my account'......really? Anyway, I'll give it one more shot, if it doesn't go this time, no problem. Last listing had 3500+ views and 85 watchers at the end, hopefully someone that actually wants the car will bid to win!!



What sayssummer cruisingmore than woodgrain and surfboards???!!!......Here's a 1982 AMC Concord Pro Street/Surf Wagon, it’s on the road and driveable, licensed and insured, but I’m calling it a project car that is nearly completed, just needing your finishing touches. Look at the pro street cars for sale, nothing but Camaros, Chevelles, Novas, and Mustangs. Dare to be different!! This is an original paint wagon that a previous owner had professionally back-halved and caged to drag race. It was raced in the 90's in the Midwest. A lot of the drag racing components are still on the car. I can’t take the credit or blame for anything in the drivetrain or chassis, other than I had a new center section built for the Ford 9". I bought it approximately 80% complete with the intention of making it fully street legal, but lack of time is preventing me from finishing it. It’s probably 95% complete now, I drive it daily when the weather is good, it's garaged and hasn't seen rain since I've owned it. My loss is your gain. Cruise as-is now and then fully complete to your likingover the winter to have done in time for next spring. Here are the details:

Body:

  • All original steel except lift off race weight cowl hood, wrapped in woodgrain to match the side panels. Hood is held on with Dzus fasteners.

  • Paint is original AMC Topaz Gold Metallic, I’d rate it a 7 out of 10, it’s still waxable, buthas some chips, small dings, etc.

  • All trim is installed on car

  • All glass is good, side windows all roll up and down

  • Lights, turn signals, dash lights all work

  • Rear back half is done nicely with a complete subframekit from Competition Engineering or equivalent, ladder bar, coilovers, panhard bar, etc. Large fuel cell under rear floor accessed through panel in rear.

  • Factory roof rack, and 2 decent surfboards complete the appearance

  • Lettering is all vinyl and can be removed if the advertising isn’t your thing

Interior:

  • Nice 8 point roll bar with tip out bars

  • Original door panels, headliner, dash pad, etc.

  • Seats are great, no rips or tears.

  • Good carpet, door sill plates, etc.

  • Retains most of factory wiring, key warning buzzer and dome light still work

  • Cheetah SCS shifter

    Drivetrain:

  • Starting in the front, there is a custom built PermaCool Radiator and Optima battery. Starts great, never overheats, runs at 185 degrees in traffic on a hot day.

  • Motor - I was told it’s a 350 Chevy, I never bothered to check, it runs great, has some drips, has the usual bolt-ons, Edelbrock intake, headers, and cam, Flowmasters. Still has the orginal Quadrajet that works perfectly. The air cleaner lid and valve covers have been hydrodipped to match rest of woodgrain theme.

  • Turbo 350 with shift kit, works great

  • Rear end is a narrowed 9” Ford posi, 4 link, coilovers, shortened 31 spline axles and new 4.11 Richmond gears,new Yukon TracLok differential, bearings, seals, etc.

  • Electric Fuel pump

Miscellaneous:

  • Matching Weld Wheels: 15 x 4 with Goodyear Frontrunners, 15 x 15 and 15.5/29 Mickeys

  • Manual steering box, Manual front disc, drum brakes with new hardware in rear

  • Competition Engineering adjustable drag shocks in front

  • Clear title in my name.


Still Needs:

  • Needs a horn and wipers to pass NYS inspection, I did install an e-brake setup using Ford and aftermarket cables. I have a horn kit to install.Everything is there for the wipers, probably just needs power to dash switch.

  • Street legal front tires

  • Although it drives reasonably well and tracks straight, probably could stand a 4 wheel alignment to make sure everything is square.

  • While the roll cage is nice, the side bars may need a re-design to pass tech if you plan on putting it on the track

  • 5 point harness is out of date

  • The usual odds and ends to complete to your satisfaction

The car will not leave the garage until all funds have cleared and are in my account. Buyer is responsible for all shipping arrangements, payments, etc. I can help load car on trailer. The car must be trailered from my driveway, I wouldn’t recommend driving it home unless you are local.

Have had a bunch of questions asked about the car, since I can't figure out how to get them to post automatically, here goes:

1) Can I put an AMC motor in it? Sure, the motor mount positions for the original 258 6 banger are still there, so however you convert to a V8 AMC motor would still work, or you could install it with motor plates like the current motor. This has had both big and small block Chevys in it at some point. Ditto on going back to a Torqueflite or whatever goes behind an AMC motor.

2) Can I put an original hood on it? Sure, same story the hood hinge mounting holes are still there, you'd need 2 hinges,a Topaz Gold metallichood, and the latch hardware for a more stock look.

3) Can I put a back seat in it? The only choice you'd have here is a custom fabricated kiddie seat to go between the roll bar down tubes.

4) Does it smoke, overheat, burn oil, use coolant, etc, etc.? No to all......the motor is pretty mild but extremely reliable, doesn't smoke cold or hot, use coolant, etc., etc.

4) Would you consider trades? Sure, worst I can say is "no thank you"
