290 HP, 360 cid, Overhead Valve V-8 Engine, 3-Speed Automatic Transmission VIN: A0C397P242361 In the mid 1960's a new segment of the American automotive market had been born, the sport compact. With the Ford Mustang having become the first real star of the segment, they became better known as the Pony-Cars. Chevrolet responded for 1967 with the Camaro and in 1968, AMC brought out its own entry, the very compact AMX. While American Motors was better known for building reliable economy cars, there was a group within the company that had a passion for performance and the AMX was a result of that passion. One of the aims for the AMX program was to become a force within the Trans-Am racing circuit, and with the help of talents like Mark Donohue, a number of awards and championships came to AMC. This is outstanding example of a sports compact. Finished in Big Bad Blue with blackout hood and front fender tops. Under the hood is the base AMX V-8, rated officially at 290 HP, which was the limit allowed by Trans-Am regulations, and its detailing is one of the best in this collection. Wearing its original Magnum 500 wheels it rides on a set of Uni-Royal Tiger Paw GTS radial tires. Adding to the visual effect are the body-side pipes and accessory bumper guards. Air flows to the carburetor through a pair of scoops in the hood. This example is also fitted with power steering and brakes with discs to the front and drums to the rear. The interior is well appointed with a factory AM-FM radio, simulated woodgrain applique on the dashboard and center-shift console and grab-bar for the passenger. In the world of muscle cars, the AMX is often over-looked, but we think that this little coupe could be the best bang for your performance buck.
