When Chrysler took over the tattered remnants of AMC in 1987, they created the “Jeep-Eagle” division in order to sell Kenosha-ized Renaults such as the Medallion and the Premier. Chrysler back then wasn’t content unless Mitsubishi got involved, and so they slapped Eagle badges on a Mitsubishi Mirage built by DSM in Illinois. This was very similar to the Geo-ization GM applied to Toyota, Isuzu, Suzuki, and Daewoo products sold in North America. You don’t see many Summits these days (you also didn’t see many of them 20 years ago) so this find in a Denver junkyard was a rare event.
Pretty generic early-90s interior here.
By 1990, most car companies had found a way to integrate the “Libby Light” into the decklid or rear package shelf, but the Summit still had the 1985-style “Oh, crap, the Americans require a center brake light— quick, take this 100,000 yen budget and make something!” afterthought light.
Will there be Eagle Summit clubs meeting for cruise nights in 2049?
