For Sale at Auction: 1969 AMC AMX in Amelia Island, Florida

Vehicle Description

Chassis No. A8M397X270047

In the late 1960s, AMC was not the first choice when it came to building sporty or youth-centric sports and muscle cars. This began to change with the launch of the racy Javelin, which was quickly followed by the two-seater AMX four months later. The world was introduced to the AMX while running laps at 130 mph around Daytona International Speedway. The combination of tire-melting muscle car performance and short wheelbase sports car-like handling made the AMX a true do-it-all car, equally at home on the quarter-mile drag strip or setting lap times on a road course.

The purchase order for this AMX was placed on 4 April 1968 at Rambler Auto Mart in Bristol, Connecticut. With clear, sporting intentions, this example was smartly ordered with the largest available engine, the high-performance 390 cu-in, 315 V8, mated to an equally sporty four-speed manual transmission. Not simply satisfied with raw horsepower, it was also selected with optional power steering and chrome Magnum 500-styled steel wheels with redline tires. The colors selected were a striking shade of Rally Green contrasted by the optional white rally stripes over a beige interior.

A well-loved part of the family, the original owner moved his special AMX to Titusville, Florida, where it would remain under single ownership until 2010. Owing to its stellar originality, this AMX was more recently used under his ownership on a limited basis to attend shows, typically coming home with an award, most notably earning an AACA Grand National First Prize in 2008. Thanks to just two dedicated owners since new, this example of AMC's finest performance car is remarkably well documented and preserved. With only an incredible 11,530 miles since new, this AMC AMX represents a chance to be just the third caretaker of one of the finest, original, Kenosha sports cars in the world.
