Looks pretty nice. I've got a few old AMC parts. I had an eagle/spirit a few years ago.

My wife's '76 Matador in 1985. Yes that is rust hole in quarter panel. Not as bad as my brothers '68 Satellite.....WI winters are rough. And yes that is rope holding up his bumper...

Haha, my dad had an orange one with white stripes back when I was around 9 years old. We were just talking about that thing last weekend. He said he would get almost 40 mpg. My sisters hated it, they would hide in it so they wouldn't be seen by their friends..lol

Yep has AC, not sure what radio. The rear tires are on another car but come with it. Rubber is decent on all they just need some air.

I do too. Should come in quite handy sometimes. I think it adds look to the car, without it they look weird.

We actually had one of these in the family. Take it for a 2 hour spin and tell me what you think of it. Very uncomfortable seat and driving position as I recall.

Miscellaneous pictures I took.

Instrument panel

Engine compartment and a look at that monster AMC inline six.

Backseat, glad I wont be sitting back there!

Still has the emissions info sticker on it. Found out the car was a 1976 instead of 74.

Radio and heater/AC controls. Not sure if that is a 8 track or not?

Driver's side

I really like these rear wing windows that pop open, something I really wish my Tacoma had!

That looked like a really neat package and I bet they are hard to find. Guy I am buying this from had a Levi Gremlin about 15 years ago.
