Not mine, but parts of them are. Pictures from a past expedition to a local non crushing yard. I hear that crushing has or will begin this year. :wtf:

This is the Kammback that I got most of a front clip off of. The underbody was totally rotted out and there was coon poop inside which made it fun to part out.

Most of this is now on my SX/4

You would have to come to my place for the hood, fenders, grille, etc. It was so rotten I doubt (if its still there) that it would stay together.

We couldn't even jack it up to pull the tranny. We thought about flipping over when we got done parting it. But that would have been disrespectful to the little varmint. It was a base model I-4 -- I should have gotten the black dash, had I been thinking.

Dash doesn't look black on the Kammy. Was all the glass busted? That Kammback glass is rare if you ever need it. Doors and fenders might be Kammy specific too. If you go back I'd try to grab whatever Kammback specific stuff you can that is easily removed.

You are right, it was wood grain. Probably why I did not grab it. Fenders fit all '81 and newer Eagles. (One is on my SX/4)

Image

Hood is on mine too:

Image

along with the grille and headlight buckets, surrounds, etc.

Image

All two door small Concords/Hornets/Gremlins/Spirits/SX/4's and Kammbacks used the same door. There were some interior differences, the exteriors were the same.

All the glass was toast before we got there.

Front shot of the Kammback after we were done.

Image

We did pull some trim items off of it. Not too much of that was salvageable.
