Yea I know, this is suppose to be Two-Wheel Tuesday, but I decided to showcase this Two-Door AMC Concord. So what the hell… It’s Two-Door Tuesday. I found this over at the “Brown Car Appreciation Society” Facebook page, and the shades of brown matched our “Classic Caption Posting” Matador this week. Bonus is the installed engine from the factory, an Audi 2 Liter 4-Cylinder!
According to the listing:
For sale 1978 AMC Concord D/L 2 door, was sold new by my grandfathers AMC dealership, my Dad’s the 3 owner, rear seat was never set on, the car was special order with an 121 Audi 4 Cylinder motor, first owner want a car with good gas mileage, gets about 28 miles to the gallon, my Mom and Dad showed the all the time they owned it, it has won Sr in AACA, and is a SR car in AMO, missed best of show its last time out by 1/2 point, the reason my Dad is selling the car is he is getting older and doesnt want to spend all day cleaning the car at shows, and he also just bought a 67 Ambassador convertible, that he can just go to show with me and my kids just wipe it down and its done, the car has 34,000 mile all original, we put a new timing belt in the motor just because of the age, it has Power Streering, Power Disc Front Brakes, it has a 2 tone paint from the factory Sand Tan and Golden Ginger, has a half Vinyl top, it has Leather seats, AM/FM Radio Tilt Streering, new head Liner, Mag Aluim Wheels big factory center caps, car is in excellant shape and ready to drive and show.
Top bid so far is $2,275, with an unmet reserve. How much do you think this will go for, and would you want it? These cars are extremely rare, as the take up rate for the 2.0L was next to nothing on the Concord. This car has one thing against it; The fact that there is no A/C, but so what? Look at it! Better yet, look at the listing, and tell me you wouldn’t want this Malaise Era AMC.
