Looking for something a little different? Consider this 1970 American Motors AMX, one of just 747 built with the powerful 360 V-8 and TorqueFlite automatic transmission. It represents the final production year of the short-wheelbase two-seat AMX, which was built and homologated to compete in the SCCA's fabled Trans-Am racing series.
A former 10-second drag car with only a few passes under the prior owner, the AMX was returned to the road by the current owner, who installed a complete interior with red upholstery and matching carpeting. The dash insert, door handles, and console cover were handsomely crafted in real wood by a cabinetmaker.
Retaining an adjustable four-link rear suspension, mini tubs and sub-frame connectors, the AMX is also equipped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Torker intake, exhaust headers, a manual valve body, and 3.31:1 rear gears. Attractively finished in white with a red accent stripe, this very fast and rare AMX also includes Magnum 500 road wheels, factory-optional side exhaust, and a shop manual.
This AMX will be offered at the Toronto Spring Classic Car Auction, presented by Dan Spendick's Collector Car Productions, on Saturday, April 13. Visit www.ccpauctions.com to make bidder arrangements. Many thanks to the current owner for providing these images!
