............has arrived. He is a '78 Concord Sport, 2 door sedan, with 304, auto, PS, A/C, AM/FM stereo, cruise control, posi, bucket seats, floor shift and gauge pod. Last inspection sticker is 1991. And if memory serves me, it came from Greenberg AMC in Inidana. Just opened the hood and took it all in. He needs some lovin'. Both front fenders will need to be replaced as will the front valance, and the back bumper. While the seats are OK with a tear in the driver's seat, the carpet is shot. And who screws the rear door panels in at the top? A little rust through in the driver's rear quarter. Grill is shot. The A/C hoses have rotted away. Still has the A.I.R. system. It will come out. First up, drain the funky old gas out of the tank, change the oil, pull the plugs, put a little Marvel in each cylinder and turn it over with a ratchet to see how free it is. Just the beginning! Thanks to George W. and another car guy buddy, Gary B. and my neighbor who helped push the car up the driveway into the garage.





Outside getting ready to load.

Later!

Took a few photos today. Here's one for you armchair detectives. What's missing in the engine compartment?



Sorry they're sideways. They posted OK on all of the other sites and they are right in my computer. Must be a problem with the site.

No, it's not the battery.

Did you take those photos with an Android phone? I sometimes have issues with them turning sideways. What I do is upload the photos to a third party then download the images and turn them the correct way. Then when I save the file they stay in the correct orientation when uploading them to forums. Kind of a pain, but it happens a lot with Android users.

Highly optioned but no power brakes.  No fan shroud, hoses to diverter valves missing,  A/C lines cut. Power steering belt missing.

Yep, but not what I am looking for. And the A/C lines have rotted ends which is baffling. But keep in mind that this may have sat for 29 years.

Are the A/C Compressor and the power steering pump connected to each other but nothing else?
