For the 1980 AMC's, the hatchback was dropped, as was the old 3-speed manual transmission. Remaining Concord models were given a smoother appearance. The sedan versions of the D/L and Limited were given full vinyl roofs with nearly triangular opera windows embedded in the C-pillars; the coupe versions received squared off opera windows, and revised chrome opera window trim with vertical strakes occupying the space between the window itself and the outer piece of trim. Base sedans and coupes retained the same rooflines and treatment seen on Hornets since 1970. Taillights were modified and given a wraparound treatment reminiscent of the old Hornet. All Concords received a new horizontal bar grille, with the Concord name in script to the driver's side, and a new, squared-off hood ornament bearing the AMC tri-color logo. That same year, options such as power windows and power seats were also made available. General Motors' Iron Duke I4 engine was also made available for 1980 to replace the rarely ordered VW/Audi four. The 304 cu in V8 and 232 cu in inline 6 cylinder were dropped outright for 1980, leaving only the outsourced 151 cu in inline 4 cylinder and AMC's durable 258 cu in inline 6 cylinder engines as the available choices. All AMCs were offered with Ziebart Factory Rust Protection for 1980 that included a new 5-year "No Rust Thru" transferable warranty, in addition to the Buyer Protection Plan 12 month/12,000-mile warranty that AMC introduced in 1972.The car you see here is a 64,766 original mile Concord DL that is a nearly all original car. Rarely seen, these cars were often forgotten about and left to rot so few remain today. This well preserved example has very good original paint that still shows well. No major imperfections anywhere to the body. Both front and rear bumpers are in good condition with no damage. Inside, the seats, carpet and dash all look nearly as good as they did when the car were new. Both front and back seats show no notable wear and the dash shows no cracking. All of the wood trim looks great. All gauges, lights, blinkers, horn and AM/FM radio work with no problems. This is an original A/C car that still blows cold and operates with no issues. Under the hood, the 258 Cu In six cylinder runs great and is connected to an automatic transmission. Both engine and transmission shift as they should. The mileage shows 64,766 and the VIN number is A0A065C135301. The car is being sold on a clean Arkansas title showing the previous owner has had the car since 2004.
