Seen a guy with this ad:
"I recently purchased a 1980/81 spirit AMX parts car. I remember someone looking for a body kit or parts. I have The complete kit including front air dam,flares, wire grill. rear 3 piece spoiler with AMX emblem .rear louver etc. It was a factory 304/4 speed car . the motor/trans,console and front seats will not be for sale. The rest is."

So I PM him with this:
"Can you send me some pictures of the louvers?
Do you have just the rear or do you have the side louvers too?
What material are they made out of (metal, plastic)?
What condition are they in?
Are the hinges in good shape?
What would you be asking for them?
Thank you"

His response:
"79 to 81 only had steel rear. Only dodge did sides ...No AMC has sides." :roll: Obviously someone does not know their AMC's well.

I respond:
"Had to ask as I have seen some plastic rear louvers for the Spirits and the SX/4's along with steel. And some had the side louvers, though I have only seen plastic sides.
What condition are they in? Are the hinges in good shape?
What would you ask for it?
Thanks"

He responds:
"Ok do you have a spirit? the hinges work fine. so tell me why I should sell you an AMX part for your spirit DL. "

I respond:
"I did not mean to upset you. I have an AMC Eagle SX/4 (same body as a Spirit and a Spirit AMX)."
And sent him 2 pics of an '81 SX/4 with rear AND side louvers and an '80 Spirit with rear AND side louvers.


I doubt I'll hear more from him. But someone needs to do a little research before getting rude :facepalm:
Another example of discrimination against us Eagle owners (and apparently Spirit owners as well).
...and as always, this is my kind of luck.
And when it has came to louvers I have always been late to the party or something like this happens :/

Well soon enough Capt will be making sets new! Rear and Side!

Yeah, he did seem like kind of a jerk about it. Louvers were not AMX specific. What's it matter! Now I could see how he might get made if you wanted to put the front air dam and side skirts on an Eagle maybe as those are parts that I'm sure an AMX owner might need!

The AMX grills look cool! Wonder if you could stick an eagle or amc badge in place of the AMX Badge. Send the CEO of the nest after him :lmao:

I've seen an AMX grill on an Eagle. I wanted to do that with mine soo bad. Too bad they are rare and cost a fortune when they do pop up!
