It also has a Golden Eagle decal on the hood, does not say Golden Eagle on the side fenders. Does not have the Golden Eagle rims but those could have been replaced. I have the VIN-J9F93EC8507359300 and have deciphered it but it does not tell you what model it is as far as Eagle. It is a 2 door Hard top. I can upload photos. I am just curious if this is an actual Golden Eagle or if someone just put the decal on it. Also it is a Manual transmission does anyone know what type of transfer case would be on it? Dana?

    Year is within range, good color, correct wheels.....wrong engine. From everything I can find the Golden Eagle was a V8.
    Someone swapped the engine or was trying to make a clone.
