I bought this '82 wagon a year and a half ago. done a little tinkerin with it and got it running. I have put on about 1000 miles. it currently has 20,932 miles as of tonight. it has power driver seat, a/c (that tonight was blowing at 28* with outside ambient air temp of 84*) cruise control (that still works) and a quite strait body. (left rear corner has a crunch just infront of the tail light. I have only tossed on a few old parts from honeybadger, and some other not used parts. (the edelbrock 500 cfm 4bbl carb for one) the car fires up and runs great. but needs to keep having little things done with it. it was owned by my neighbors who drove it once a month, for about 4 months a year. only to go to town for groceries about 70 miles one way form the ranch they owned. it got parked when the fuel pump had a small leak and cought fire. they replaced the fuel pump, but couldn't get it to run. there are some wires around the ignition stuff (dizzy, icm, plug wires ect) that got burnt. I fixed a few so far. and it runs really good with burnt plug wires, burnt dizzy connection plug, the coil primary wires are both bare. but I still drive it once in a while. heres a video of proof. has belts still with the AMC logos, all plug wires have amc logos, lower rad hose still has amc logo, 2 of the heater hoses still have amc logos also. (I think I should replace all those amc logo'd hoses/belts no?)

this was recorded tonight.

Good find. Yeah, those belts and hoses should probably be replaced. Although, my '80 Concord has most of that factor stuff intact too. Not sure, but the plugs could be factory as well.
