Technical specifications, photos and description:
Hello. AMC fans! Up for sale is my 1968 AMX 390 V8--1 of 2. 12 built with 390 and Automatic drive train. The car has a very desirable and original color combination of Matador Red Exterior w/ Black interior--it's an original Go-Pak car as well AND has its original factory build sheet.
A recent compression test revealed all cylinders at 175-180 pounds. The car has just been detailed inside and out. so it's looking amazing and the interior is exceptionally clean. In short. the '68 AMX is a unique. beautiful. and powerful car. Whenever I drive it around town I get head turns and compliments.
Power steering and four-piston front disc brakes. 3. 15 rear gear with Twin-grip. Car has its original build sheet to prove all the options and combinations. While build sheets are common for Mopars. GM's and even Marti reports are available for Fords. nothing exists for AMC's. So build sheets are extremely rare especially for 390 AMX's! 146. 00 original miles. The car has never received a full-on restoration. but instead has been maintained well over its 40+ year life. The car is 100% stock with no alterations at all other then 14x7" rear wheels (factory are 14x6" all around) and the Go-Pak stripes are painted on instead of decals.
The interior of the car is exceptionally nice. The 68 only door panels are in fantastic condition. These are not reproduced so you can't buy replacements. The dash is in great shape with no cracks or splits. Same goes for the dash pad. Original AMX numbered plaque is there. The complete carpet set is new and has matching AMX logo mats. New sill plates also. The seat covers. foam and seat backs are brand new Legendary Interior pieces. The seat tracks were bead blasted. repainted and greased. Shifter rebuilt with new bushings so it is very tight with no rattles. The seat side covers are new placements. Every component of the entire interior has been thoroughly cleaned. New interior screw kit used during reassembly. The only items in the interior that need attention are the steering wheel and the headliner needs to be glued to the roof to stop the cardboard from sagging. The steering wheel is better then 90% of the AMX's out there. The original headliner ribbed vinyl fabric is solidly adhered to the board. but the board itself is sagging slightly. All the original seat belts (including shoulder belts) are in place and in great condition. They still have the original tags which is rare in itself.
The car was repainted sometime in the 80's and as far as I know it has only been repainted one time. The paint has good shine and looks nice unless you are 2 feet away. There are several chips that have been touched up and there is a small paint stain spot on the trunk lid. Overall the paint is OK for a driver or a cruise-in show car. The body of the car is nice with no rust that is visible when standing in front of it. but the lower quarters behind the rear wheels have evidence of some filler. Overall the car is very presentable and gets many compliments - trying to be as honest as possible with the paint/body description so there are no surprises for a potential buyer. The chrome on the bumpers is in very nice shape. The Â¼ window chrome and driver's mirror have some fading and spotting. but no pitting. Within the last 16 months. the following has been replaced. exterior trim with new parts: rocker moldings. front side marker lights. 390 emblems. NOS AM trunk emblem. front parking light lenses. new front spoiler. new center caps. new lug nuts. every piece of weatherstriping and rubber door/hood/trunk bumpers are all new. If you know AMX's you know that the rear taillights. housings. lenses and center reflector are often pitted. broken and faded. None of that on this car. Almost everything is in great shape due to its low mileage and maintained condition. All the lights work. even the reverse lights.
The engine was rebuilt and the car has only a few thousand miles since. I have all the receipts from the previous four owners. Car has complete tune-up including rebuild kit in the carb. new choke stove lines. new pump-to-carb fuel line. new date coded plug wire. new cap/rotor/points/condenser. performance curve kit in distributor. new plugs and new vacuum advance. stainless steel flowmaster exhaust system with 50 series flowmaster mufflers (409 stainless) (within last 12 months)
New hood liner. all the under hood decals are new as well. New master cylinder. new correct radiator cap. all new and correct battery cables. New heavy duty battery. New 160Â° thermostat and new water pump. The car has the original fan shroud and Go-Pak 7-blade fan - runs cool even when stuck in 90Â° heat creeping along in a cruise.
Trunk. under hood and door jams all seem to have the original paint. The trunk has the original space saver spare. jack. hook and inflator. New twin-grip and jacking instruction stickers as the originals were badly tattered. New truck mat in as well. The driver's door tag is in awesome condition and of course is original to the car.
Overall the car runs great and is a pleasure to drive. Car is completely stock so it behaves just like it was originally built. Front end recently aligned. Stopping power is awesome with four piston power front disc brakes. Power steering is light so no wrestling with the wheel when parking it.
Just spent $1500. 00. 1/15/2013. on all new front bushings. emergency brake cable renewal. and front caliper rebuild and a few other minor items.
$500. 00 on 4/09/2013 for carburetor rebuilt.
