I was referred here by another member. I have a AMC Eagle SX4 that I am going to get running for some winter play, and for camping trips. It has the 4.2 with a aftermarket valve cover, new fuel pump, and a very poorly done 2100 carb swap. It has a lot for dents, but don't most Eagles. It is solid very little rust. It is the 4 speed manual, with a hurst shifter, tan interior, broken drivers seat. My future plans are to rebuild or replace carb. Make custom hitch for it. Add roof lights and roof rack. I might install a IMPCO425 mixer and vaporizer I have, so I could run both gas, and propane. I would like to rhino line it red, or green. Spirit window louvers would be great to find too. But those are hard to find and expensive when you do find them. I will also have to address the problem of no air conditioning. I have a few ideas, but it is going to be the biggest project on the car.

Nice! Someone already put an aluminum valve cover on it.... one less thing you gotta do 8-)
Looks like a super clean interior you've got there.

looks like a good start. OUCHIE tho on that smash behind the door. that wont be fun to fix. (stretched metal and all...) looks like it has had the smogectomy. your carb, you want a 2150 with 1.08 venturies. they work the best for these motors. looks like it is the base model sx4 with 4.2 as only option selected. are those wheels 15"? they wouldn't work on honeybadger, but I might could like them on my wagon. digging the roof rack.

o and WELCOME TO EVO!!!! hope to see this car come along on here. kick back, relax, take your pants off, and hang out. :cheers: :cheers:

.. a nice base model dashboard too. Interior looks to be in very good shape. Get a sport steering wheel and it will look even nicer.
