AMC Spirit AMX 1980 Apple Creek
This is a video of my much loved 1980 Spirit AMX that I originally rescued from marshal town Iowa in 2005/2006? I was told the car was originally a show room car from AMC Braga Motor Company, which I would believe because its received all the AMX upgrades they had in the final years and a unique serpentine belt system which I've been told is pretty rare(Since I've converted to a jeep V-Belt system). Before I managed to bring it back to Ohio through the Worst snow storm Iowa's had in a decade or so the prior owner told me the AMX hadn't run in the last 10 or 12 years. So I put allot of work into throughout High School, and I always had the dream of fully restoring it. But it seams like everything else that I left behind when I joined the Corps, it too fell far behind on my hopes. The Main reason the project halted is because part of the Frame was becoming unsafe, and I'm only a mediocre welder at best and I didn't have enough money or time to find a good one to do it. I hope one day it will find the care and concern it needs and deserves. -It has a 258 CI inline six that has been bored .60 over -Borg/Warner T4 Manual Transmission -Offenhouser 4 barrel air intake -4 Barrel Edlebrock 500 CFM Carb -Performance Exhaust headers -dual performance Exhaust mufflers exiting off both sides -Jeep aftermarket heavy duty valve cover and a whole lot of new parts, sweat, blood, and elbow grease in it. Like; -Clutch Fan -Alternator -Starter -switches -radiator -Hoses -distributor and wires -sensors Etc...
