This 1968 AMC AMX represents the first year of a performance car
revolution at AMC. So it's great to find an example that keeps the
vintage details and a terrific driver attitude. And the affordable
price is just the cherry on top.
The AMX was an individual sports car on a shortened Javelin
platform, and the rare bespoke bodywork from the A-pillar back is
looking straight and sporty. Plus, these had the best details
around with ribbed power bulges in the hood, flared fenders, mag
wheels, ribbed rockers, and a hint of flying buttress in the rear
to draw added attention to the fastback-like profile. It's truly a
classic presentation where the color was even upgraded to a
year-correct Calcutta Russet later in life. It has the right look
of aged-in maturity. So while you may want to invest in a modern
respray, we already kind of like how many people will assume this
is a factory/survivor. Part of that feeling also comes from the
completeness with form-hugging chrome bumpers, wide grille, and all
the correct badging.
The interior continues the look of a true classic machine. The full
tan package looks good against the exterior brown. And there are
nice details, including the wood-like trim on the doors and working
courtesy lights. It's such an authentic vintage machine that you
still have a working AM radio with 8-track! But the real attraction
is that the AMX was specifically built to be a driver's car. That's
why there's only room for two, and you each get a bucket seat. The
center console, three-spoke steering wheel, and full gauge package
is both stock and sporty.
Under the hood is the correct-style 290 cubic-inch motor for this
N-code coupe. AMC's V8 has earned a reputation for being both
trusty and powerful. And while the setup is quite stock, underneath
the air grabber is an upgraded Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor to
let this V8 inhale deeper. It fires up readily, idles well, and
makes a sweet tune out of the dual exhaust. It's a cool classic
that you'll want to show off, and so this has nice anytime driving
features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power
steering, power brakes, and front discs.
Unique muscle cars that are this complete don't come around very
often, and they are rarely this affordable. Don't miss your
opportunity, call today!
