The Concord was the AMCs answer to the Cavalier, Tempo, Fairmont, & Malibu — a task that a restyled Hornet brought to market with a typically small development budget. Did the Concord beat its competition with its raised ride height and adventure ready style? No. The Concord was yet another liver spot on the balding head of the almost dead American Motors Corp, and driving on in 1983 meant you were a person who made bad choices in life, but driving one today makes you a cool dude.

This next beast is just about extinct. You just don’t see 80s vintage AMCs driving around anymore — except maybe the occasional Pacer/Gremlin or Eagle 4X4. But the Concord was their compact entry-level sedan offering and you can’t even find these things in junkyards anymore.

The AMC Eagle was sold in a number of different body styles, but where things get confusing is when you transition from the 4-door sedan/wagon/coupe versions built on the AMC Concord chassis but the 2-door SX/4, Kammback, & Sundancer models were built on the AMC Spirit subcompact chassis. However, there is nothing quite like combining […]

After giving away my first car – a ’74 Javelin – last year, an American Motors sized hole has existed in the fabric of my being. In a separate but to-be-related path, I had also purchased a TKO-500 transmission for an Aussie XE Falcon ute project a couple of months ago from a buddy in […]

Simply put, the Concord was the AMCs answer to the Cavalier, Tempo, Fairmont, & Malibu — a task that a restyled Hornet brought to market by an engineering team the […]
The supersonic Concorde was a product of a joint venture between French Aérospatiale and British Aircraft Corp (later known as Airbus) which provided luxury transatlantic passenger flights at half the duration of the typical jumbo jet.
