Having jumped back into the ring of AMC ownership with an '82 Concord last week, I now view the extra two drive wheels and elevated stance of Eagles with a tinge of jealousy. To add insult to injury, this is an extra-rare manual transmission example, leaving you the freedom to sling mud in any gear you choose. Find this 1986 AMC Eagle for sale in Charlotte, NC for $1,500 via craigslist.
Since we all know exactly what a dingy 258 looks like, let's focus on the things that make or break deals like this like critter houses in the engine compartment. Fortunately or not, the current owner has had the car for over a year in this condition so the critter either done runned off or has passed on. The seller swears that the chewed up wiring is isolated to the fog lights. Since the Eagle was still using - let's call it an 'Electrarburetor' - there weren't that many wires that were essential in running the engine.
