AMC 1980 AMX Spirit restoration
This is my 1980 AMC Spirit AMX. I finished restoring this car in July of 2002. This car has new paint,interior,transmission,3:73 rear and a built up 360 AMC engine producing close to 400 hp. I sold this car to finish my 86 Corvette. I miss it very much. This car had the Exhaust turned down towards the ground. It sounded real bassy like rolling thunder. This car was super fast. I took it to the 100th Rambler anniversary in Kenosha, WI in July 2002. With Group 19 AMC club. We also took it to Long Island, New York one summer, and I cruised my old neighborhood. Its sad to say that I sold it to a young man and the car is getting abused. I saw some chips and scratches on it. AMC made awesome engines.

Options on this 1979 AMC AMX include: AM/FM Radio, Manual Sunroof, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Vinyl Interior, Seat Belts, Raised White Letter Radial Tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. The AMX model was transformed from the Concord hatchback to the Spirit liftback for 1979. The Spirit was a subcompact car produced from 1979 to 1983 and replaced the Gremlin. It shared the Gremlin's platform, and was offered in two hatchback versions, each with two doors, a sedan and a liftback. The AMX had several features back in 79' that would make it very popular today. The blacked out grill, fiberglass fender flares, and rear spoiler all combine for an individualized and sporty look. Underneath, the AMX sports a GT rally-tuned suspension, which helped it win its class at the 24 Hour Nürburgring race, out of 120 cars. Peak inside the window of this late 70's hatchback and you'll see the all black interior is in great condition. The floor shifter provides a great sporty feel to this coupe as does the glass sunroof. Pop free the 3 harnesses to the sunroof in a flash, and you've got another window. This AMX features recent paint and body work, including of course, the pinstripes. The first and last thing you notice and will remember about this AMC AMX is the hood decal, you just have to see it to appreciate it.
