5k: Subsonic Woody: 1983 AMC Concord DL

 This Concord is not a supersonic passenger jet, but a replacement for the AMC’s outgoing compact Hornet and mid-sized Matador.  The Concord was released in 1978 during the height of the domestic downsizing, by the struggling AMC.  It was designed with an emphasis on luxury to lure buyers from the big three and invading Japanese competition.  As the smallest US OEM, AMC had the most to fear from the impending boom of the reliable, efficient and inexpensive Japanese economy car. The Concord survived until 1983 as AMC slid farther into abyss of the alliance with Renault and later acquisition by Chrysler.  Find this 1983 AMC Concord DL offered for $3,995 buy-it-now via ebay, located in Rainbow City, AL with 17 days to go.

The seller seems to be a regular ebay seller with multiple listings closing daily for small car related items, but he inexplicably uses 320 pixel wide images for this listing.  What is this an AMC Concord for ants?  It must be at least three times bigger than this…

Small pictures aside, this Concord looks to be about as clean as an example as you’ll see this side of the Rambler Ranch museum in Colorado.  The Concord is powered by a 4.2 liter inline-6 that seems better fit for pushing a Jeep around and puts out 110 horsepower and 210 ft-lbs of torque.
