Hey doug
Thanks for your help, the problem is the pimped bodywork. In germany (europe) you have to fullfill all general technical german laws/specifications . Did you have old infos / pics from eagles with 235/75 r15 rims that would help me out a lot.
The german tüv accepted only 215/75R15 rims, so that is an issue. And the towing rig is not accepted because there is no paperwork from the manufactor (suisse). I givve the company a call but they dont need anything special papers in suisse to get the rig legal, so there is no way.....

Hey jurjen
Nice to see there are more eagles out there in europe!
Looks cool! Thats my oppinion too.....going to camp with the eagle!!

Factory literature shows only the 215/65R 15 tires were provided on only the Aluminum Wheels. Stock tires for the steel wheeled cars were the 195/75R 15 tires. There was no front towing option offered by AMC.

Ignore the following mistake I made If I remember correctly 235/75R 15 tires are the size that interchanges with the stock 215/65R tires.

I don't think that's right. I believe the 235/75s require some trimming of the fender flares...captspillane has a right up about it on the nest. I believe it's even a bit hard to get 225/75s under there without some rubbing issues...especially if your car is sagging quite a bit from it's original stock height.

Yup your right:

235/75-15 6.9in 14.4in 28.9in 90.7in 698 0.0%

I am happy to see your caravan Eagle.

The pics you told were taken from FlickR where I created, with a lot of contributions from Dutch people, the European AMCs group.

Excuse me, can you be so glad to tell me if your paint code is 0M Dark brown or 1H Chestnut brown?

Thanks
Alberto from Spain

It looks like the chips from the 1982 paint chart I own.

I am trying to decide a colour for my Eagle betwwen chesnut brown , cooper brown, garnet and vintage red but it is difficult to do, seeing pics because I never saw another Eagle.

Hello Bjorn, I can send you the brochures and documents I got through Ebay.

This Swiss JHKeller A5 brochure was for the Switzerland french market and I got in United Kingdom Ebay.
It was sold as a 1983 brochure:

Hello again, Bjorn

This another Swiss JHkeller brochure, was an incredible find, it was bought from Bob Johnson´s Literature, in Ebay from the United States, so, I believe, it wasn´t never delivered to the JHKeller dealer from Switzerland (Europe).
It was supposed to be from 1981-1982 but the information contained had a lot of references to 1980 parts like the NP-119 tansfer case (not NP-129 from 1981-1983), and the illustrations from the roof rack and the inner pic of the surfing wagon are from a 1980 wagon.
For me this brochures are a little gems, but it is a headache for me to try to read because I understand nothing of german speak or french speak.
