Each week, we will bring you a segment from the past season of /DRIVE+.

The AMC AMX is a rare muscle car that's often overlooked. Compared to other more popular muscle cars, it's lighter and smaller, giving it a performance advantage. Light, rare, and overlooked, it deserved a story.

134939 / 1970 AMC AMX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lbnkyth Much cleaner than when it originally rolled down American's Kenosha, Wisconsin assembly line, this slick AMX has been transformed in to a take-no-prisoners street warrior that shines at the strip AND the show. You'll feel like a flag-waving patriot encased in the car's professionally finished Big Bad Blue paintwork, which has been applied over a very clean body. There are no signs of rust or rot, suggesting that body was a straight, trouble-free canvas before its metamorphosis began. Not surprisingly, panel gaps are good enough to make black C-stripes line up exactly right. And overall, the car is so well done that many unsuspecting bystanders will be fooled into thinking this is how it roared right off the showroom floor. Lift the long blue hood and you'll find a 1970-exclusive, 390 cubic inch V8 that creates a respectable 325 horsepower. Original to the car, this mill hangs a December 3rd, 1969 assembly date above correct 390 casting numbers. At the top of the light blue block, a functional Go Package rams air in to a polished filter case and correct 4-barrel carburetor. Below that carburetor, a correct intake feeds correct 51cc heads that are fitted with attractive chrome valve covers. Sparks are sequenced through 7mm Standard Triple Silicon wires via a familiar points distributor. Opposite that distributor, fully restored Exhaust manifolds jettison charred dinos in to rowdy, true-dual pipes. And, at the front of it all, a heavy duty radiator circulates water through pliable hoses and traditional tower clamps. Just aft of that big bore engine, an original Borg Warner AS6-12 3-speed twists torque to a posi-traction rear end. That smooth drivetrain feeds a 1970-exclusive double wishbone front and rear leaf suspension, which is shackled to factory power steering. Cool and confident stops are provided by Safe Command power front disc and rear drum brakes. And at the corners of the floor, rare Machine wheels spin E60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around stainless trim rings and blue-detailed center caps. If you're like me and prefer your muscle cars flashy, you'll definitely appreciate this AMC's correct Black interior. The car's clamshell perches are firm to the touch, featuring pliable leather covers that present very well. In front of those seats, a 1970-exclusive dash hangs rebuilt gauges, an American Motors radio and Weather Eye climate controls in a broad swath of wood applique. Below that dash, a Shift-Command shifter rides top-dead-center on a correct, wood-trimmed console. And in front of the driver, a 2-spoke Rim Blow steering wheel spins a large wood rim around a patriotic horn button. Compact, big-displacement muscle cars are as exclusive as they are fun, and every time we put a well-restored AMC in our showroom, our phones start ringing off the hook.

1969 AMC AMX Gateway Classic Cars Orlando #183
For sale in our Orlando showroom is a 1969 AMC AMX. The AMX was introduced in the middle of 1968 and was designed to appeal to the younger generation of muscle car buyer. It certainly succeeded in that, with a large campaign with Playboy enterprises and a target price of under $3500 the AMX hit record sales numbers right out of the gate. Our 1969 AMX is very original sporting a 390CID V8 backed by a Borg Warner 4 speed with Hurst shifter. Even the original 8 track is still intact and functioning with the Elvis Presley greatest hits collection included at time of sale. Options and accessories for the 69 AMX were limited and sparse but our example does come with the 390CID V8, Go Package, Hurst Shifter, 8 track, and Power steering which were top of the line in 69. The level of care that this vehicle has seen over the years is very evident just by the condition of the interior and exterior. No modifications have been made to this car or additional gages, electronics etc etc. Even the carpet in this ride is the thick pile plush that Mopar was known for back in the day. Located in our Orlando Showroom this 1969 AMX, can be seen including HD pictures and videos at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
