Data on 1969 AMX

The AMX's full second model year saw only slight changes. except for a $52 increase in its base price. The five-spoke Magnum 500 steel road wheels were no longer chrome plated. but now came with a stainless steel trim ring. The racing stripes were now available in five colors. The interior featured a revised instrumentation with the 0-8000 rpm tachometer moved to match the speedometer that was now calibrated to 140 mph (230 km/h). Interior door panels were revised. carpeting was upgraded. new leather upholstery was optional. and the gas pedal became suspended. Later production cars received a hood over the instruments in front of the driver. Trunk capacity was 9. 7 cubic feet (275 l).

Starting January 1969. all manual transmission AMXs came with a Hurst floor shifter. A "Big Bad" paint option for $34 became available starting in mid-1969. The factory-painted 1969 AMXs were 195 in BBB. 285 in BBO. and 283 in BBG.

Popular Mechanics wrote that the 1969 "AMX preserves the status quo this year. being virtually unchanged. remains an absolute delight to drive. "

American Motors did not provide identification on the engine block. known as VIN stamping. as some other car manufacturers had been doing at that time. Other than the actual displacement. there was no way to associate a vehicle with the original "born with" engine. Since this was common practice at the GM and Chrysler plants it is much easier to verify that the exact engine in the car is actually the factory original unit. Each AMC vehicle was inspected to confirm that the engine displacement (identified by numbers cast on the block under the engine mounts) corresponded to its corresponding engine code in the vehicle identification number (VIN). A tag screwed to the valve cover provides an engine's build date. and that date code always preceded a specific car's production sequence. However. there is no engine "numbers matching" test for AMXs or any other AMC automobiles.

As a marketing move for the AMXs. AMC affixed a small plate with a number to the glove box door or to the center of the dash. These are random numbers. They do not coincide with any other identifying number such as the car's VIN code. dealer or zone order. production sequence. nor build date.

The AMX was a Fastback Coupe with great performance credentials. For instance. it set 106 new national and international speed records by being driven 24 hours straight at 140. 8 MPH on Goodyear's Texas test track in February 1968-the same month it debuted at the Chicago Auto Show. "I've never driven anything quite like it. The steering and body roll resistance were excellent. and it ran and felt just about perfect. said Criag Breedlove. who drove the record setting AMX with his wife. Lee!

These are iconic cars and getting harder and harder to find. especially with the big 390 V-8's and 4 speed transmissions.
