This vehicle was purchased by a AMC collector in Los Angeles in 1985 and stored for a future restoration which was completed in 2010. The vehicle was finished with an emphasis on using many of his first run NOS parts and keeping the car Correct as built. The car was finished and housed in his personal collection attended very few shows and travelled very few miles since build. In 2017 the car was then refreshed again with some minor repairs and upkept again only several hundred miles were add to this low mileage example but now the car has 41,600 miles which are believed to be original. Since possession of the new owner the car has been driven sparingly and has recently been shown a a few local events. It runs, drives and performs and one would expect please take a minute to watch a youtube video we shot of a general inspection and cruise on the highway. I’m sure you would be very impressed with this vehicle if you were to get it. Seldom will you see an AMC AMX finished level its show worthy, correct and a fun fast car to drive weighing in at 1900lbs and pushing 325hp this car out runs many of the larger Horsepower mid-size Muscle cars we’ve had.
