1984 AMC Eagle 4×4 Wagon

1984 AMC Eagle 4×4 Wagon – $850

I am going to go out on a limb here and call this AMC Eagle a future collectible. This was one of the first All Wheel Drive cars on the market. Yes Audi is the king of AWD and ya Subaru is another one but who was the first crazy ass to throw a transfer case under a wagon *and* allow it to engage on dry pavement? AMC of course! The other historical note is that these AMCs used the AWD systems from none other than Ferguson Research who was in the middle of the AWD boom in Formula One in the late 60s. AMC linked to Formula One??!! Ok Ill run with that.

The way that AMC built the front suspension is also a thing of beauty. The front differential is mounted to the engine block, very funky.

84 eagle wagon, 6cyl. motor and 5 speed tranny, 4 wheel drive. all appear to be good. starts right up. most of the dash electrical does not appear to work as no charge light is on. head and tail lights are fine, tires are pretty good. could be on the road, right front wheel bearing needs replaced and interior kinda sad. was a sharp one in it;s day, had everything.
