The wording is long but I want to make sure you understand the pros and cons of the car.
I picked the AMX up this past March in Paris Illinois. Some of you Amc guys may have looked at it. It had sat. rarely used in the 6 years of ownership. I believe he said under 200 miles were driven. My plans were to work on it over the next year or so. As with many. our plans have changed. Instead of a move to N Mi. next year. my wife and I will be moving soon. Now a vintage truck makes more sense. This is the only reason for the sale.
I would consider a vintage truck or alike in trade.
This is the list of what I know has not been addressed yet.
The wiper motor is missing. but the switch. all linkage and arms present. If you have or pick up a good core. there is an Bayer who sells rebuilts with good core for $200. I use RainX. No washer pump for windshield. Bag is under hood. In dash tach. clock and dash lights are not working. I have not looked into this yet. Working after market tach mounted on steering column. I replaced the speedometer cable with what was to be correct. but bounces. The original radio is gone and replaced with a stereo/cd with a large power amp in the trunk. Ihad planned to eventually remove this as it is not my style. Yes the radio pod was cut. Glove box light not working. Horn in steering wheel not working. but small red button under dash operates the horn.
Here are items that are either new or as new.
Front brakes are as new. with later model Large single piston calipers. Rear brakes all new. Drums. wheel cylinders. shoes. spring kit. New KYB shocks all four corners. Leaf springs in rear and coil up front have been replaced with low miles. The car has been lowered in rear by blocks and can guess the coils in front cut . Stance of the car is perfect in my opinion. Trunnions look new. as do lower ball joints. tie rods ect. Tires are Coker redlines 225-75-14 and have minimal miles. They look new. Magnum rims are driver quality with nicks. weak chrome ect.
Black interior was originally red from factory. Dash is nice with very slight crack in upper center where factory speaker was. Day - night mirror nice. Visors are nice. Center console is nice. Steering wheel is good with 1 crack seen in photo. The headliner is good with a slight droop in the middle. There were small (3"×5") patches on both sides of floorpan. There is rust repair needed on the passenger pan approx. 2"x2". driver side 3"x3". Carpet looks good. All Interior plastic panels are nice except for the lower kick panels on both sides. small speakers The large upper rear panel has 2 6x9 speakers mountedinside. with power amp mounted from trunk. All glass in car is tinted. All have scratches. An auto glass scratch remover product would help immensely. Seatbelts work. also has the shoulder harness. Lightswitch still buzzes when left on. Heater blower switch works as does the floor to defrost switch. The heat on & off needs work. Cable is there. the unit off back of intake is stiff. Can move by hand but not by cable. Door panels are nice as are the arm rests. which are curled slightly. Sill plates are nice aftermarket. The seats are 1970 and adequate. driver seat has a tear on outside bolster. Both plastic backs have scratches and repaired cracks ect. A far better seat than the 68-9.
This car is very straight. The paint quality is good. nice shine but there is alot of paint on the car. Paint chip size of quarter on leading edge of door/rear of fender ds. that has been touched up. The car checks well with a magnet. Yes. there is filler but not alot. The lower rear quarters were done. with filler behind rather than trunk extension. Rockers are nice. Both doors are nice with corners redone with metal. Lower lip is nice on both. drivers has chips on lower edge. Front fenders nice and straight. In the front you will see that they are tacked to the inner fender. Front bumper is exceptionally nice. Amber lenses are nice. Rear bumper is very thin on chrome but nice and straight. Driver mirror nice. Rocker chrome is decent. held on by multiple screws. Small wrinkle in driver side leading edge of front inner fenderwell. Not bad. but needed to be mentioned. Grill is without cracks. The hood has infamous stress crack approx. 5 inches back from front. I was told this is typical with early 68 fronts due to less structural support. There are multiple stress cracks in paint at front of hood due to this. Trunk lid looks good. Nice trunk area with newer spatter paint. No spare or bottle. All rubbers on car have been replaced except the fuzzies and rubber sweeps on the doors. 390 emblems are nice as are the circle and amx lettering . Stainless should be polished. Taillight housings are good. Lenses ok. Rear center lens has 2 small screws each side for mounting. Headlights. taillights. running lights and turn signals working right now. Reverse lights on constant so bulbs removed. Engine. transmission ect
390 has definitely been gone thru. Engine is clean. good paint. no leaks. It has a lope from an upgraded cam. Newer Holley 8067-1 dual feed double bumper. Newer Edelbrock Performer Aluminum intake. with Edelbrock finned aluminum valve covers. Older steel Hooker super comp headers into generic mufflers. Dr side has small hole. Unilite Electronic Distributor. Promaster Coil. Aftermarket under hood chrome steering column due to clearance issues from headers. Steering gearbox looks rebuilt due to condition. Newer alternator. Newer mini high torque starter. Aluminum 6 blade fan. Radiator looks rebuilt. Brake booster also appears rebuilt with replaced master cylinder. New JEGS electric fuel pump and regulator with stainless hose to carb. Transmission is the BorgWarner automatic with manual valve body. Good strong manual shifting transmission. Transmission is clean with new paint. I believe a rebuild was done at the same time as the engine .
I describe my cars as complete and honest as I can. I would not buy this car if you are a purest. I have not had the time to fully shake down the car for reliability. so keep this in mind. I bought this one to have fun with. period. It looks great. runs strong and draws alot of attention. I just can not see myself driving for miles on dirt roads with it. I had a 69 AMX 15 years ago along with a 73 360 4 spd Javelin. If I were not moving the car would not be for sale.
I will be adding a detailed video over the next day or so. It will include views of the Floorpan.
*The AMX is at my cottage in Harbor Beach Mi which is located in Mi northern thumb.
As mentioned. if you have a vintage truck. Bronco. Scout ect. and are interested in a trade contact me. Good luck bidding.
I will work with a shipper. but arrangement and payment will be that of the buyer. Check my feedback. I have been buying and seller here for 16 years. I will only ship to lower 48 states
