The AMX was designed to appeal to both muscle car and sports car enthusiasts and was successful in both worlds. Tire melting acceleration made them frequent fliers at drag strips around the country and in SCCA road racing they competed in the B-Production class against cars like the Shelby GT350. This car is stock and appears to be an all original, survivor type of car. While many of the AMXs were painted in wild colors and festooned with sponsor decals, this one is presented in a nice Regatta Blue that may help you avoid attracting unwanted attention while you are out for a cruise. 1969 was the last year with the headlights mounted separately from the grill of horizontal bars with AMX off to one side. The chrome and the stainless isnt new and freshly replaced, it does look great for its age. Rocker trim dresses out the lower edge of the body and a style line trails off the top of the rear wheel wells with AMX and 390 V8 emblems appearing on the rear fenders too. The rear end is sweet with the slope of the rear end descending smoothly between the sail panels to the super clean arrangement of full width taillamps. That is underlined by a sharp looking bumper with a couple of chrome exhaust tips peeking out from underneath. Open the door and you will find a Charcoal interior with nice wood tone accents. Like the outside of the car, it is kind of understated given its performance orientation. The door panel is simple with a brushed metal line across the top and a wood tone insert behind the window crank. One thing that makes this car unique is that it was the only two seat, steel bodied, American car built since the 57 T-bird. And those two seats look great, and are comfortable, having been nicely recovered in charcoal cloth with black piping. A three-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a stock dash panel that has the tach on the left, the speedo in the center and gauges on the right. Ventilation controls are on the lower left and there is an Aiwa AM/FM/CD player in the center for your listening pleasure just in front of the shifter for the automatic transmission that rises from a wood tone console. Open the hood and you will find a stock 390 cubic inch engine sitting down in a snug engine bay with a new aluminum radiator keeping things running cool. The air filter housing it topped with a red, white and blue, AMX 390 decal which sits on top of a 4-barrel carburetor and both the motor and engine bay appear to be true to the survivor character of this car. There has been some regular maintenance done as evidenced by new ignition components as well as newer belts and hoses, probably all handled when the radiator was installed. Because it was designed as a two-seat sports car as well as a drag racer, it has a short wheel base for good handling, and multi leaf springs in the rear with coil springs on control arms along with a sway bar in the front that was tuned for tearing up the backroads as well as the road racing circuits of the day. Rare, unique, and potent. This car is a fun to drive collectible. Call or come on down and check it out.

With a short three-year production run, the AMX was discontinued in 1970, and was replaced by the Javelin from 71- 74. This classic AMX makes quite the statement with the Green Paint covering the cool and vintage bodylines and the original Brown interior.

AMC was quite a corporate automotive rebel during its time on the scene, and while some of their offerings may have veered a little too far from the norm for many buyers tastes, their muscle cars were distinctive as opposed to flat out eccentric and have come through the years with perennially appealing designs and an unflagging legion of admirers. Case in point is this 1969 AMC AMX with the Go Package. Its looking sharp, running with plenty of vitality and carries its original colors both inside and outside to go along with a numbers-matching drivetrain. AMCs flair for the unique extended even to the naming of its colors, and the very magnetic shade spread over its exterior was referred to as Big Bad Blue on the AMC color chart back when this 69 debuted. Its Go Package status brings with it the dual striped decals running over its hood, roof and deck lid, as well as the aluminum air dam positioned below its front end, both of which have come through the years in good condition. With its solid exterior alignment, wide set headlights bracketing a fresh-looking black front grille and a distinctive semi-fastback rear roofline, this 60s muscle car cuts a commanding presence just as it is, but a freshening up of its paint, as well as some well-placed attention on its brightwork, would make it even more so. The black vinyl interior offers just the vintage driving atmosphere youd want in a classic like this, while also featuring some of the individuality AMC became known for over the years. The front buckets are accented by a diagonal stitching and are well padded and in good condition, with the exception of a very small hole in the drivers seat. The black carpeting running the length of the floor, as well as the door panels to each side, are in very solid condition. The unmistakable sight of the Hurst shifter sitting between the buckets makes you want to take your position in the drivers seat and run through the gears to see what this unique looking muscle car can do. In front of the woodgrain, AMC-branded steering wheel, the factory gauges in the instrument cluster are clear and very readable and the commanding woodgrain accent in the middle of the clean-looking dash looks fresh and well-maintained. The trunk area in back looks to be in good order and well-detailed with a vinyl liner on its floor and a space saver spare on hand inside. This AMX is very much ready to hit the road just as soon as you get it home, as its running great. The numbers matching 343 cubic inch Typhoon engine under the hood still carries its original Carter 4-barrel carb and acquits itself well - when you step down on the accelerator it even seems to possess more than its advertised 285 horsepower. It sounds great through its Flowtech mufflers, and teams with an also-original 4-speed manual transmission that shifts securely and puts maximum control in the hands of the driver. Front disc brakes offer increased fade resistance, the 4.10 Twin Grip posi provides blazing, sure footed off the line acceleration, while the featured handling package improves corner carving ability. This sharp looking classic rolls on a set of 14 stock AMC wheels wrapped with bias ply Firestone tires. The underside has been painted and its components look very solid and well-prepped. This 1969 AMC AMX represents an important chapter in automotive history and offers an awesome driving experience. Call today!
