AMC Hornet SST 1970 first testdrive/burnout for 2010

Just a video my wife shot of my Hornet on it's first testdrive this year. The car is 1970 AMC Hornet SST 2 door with AMC 360cid/A727 and AMC-20 rear with 2.78 gears. New updates include Proform HEI distributor, Edelbrock performer intake+carb, all new water/oil/gas hoses, etc. It's got more pickup than ever and it's running like a dream now, small adjustments still ahead of courseHopefully getting it back on the road after some electrics details next week.

AMC Hornet The Man with the Golden Gun





1970 AMC Hornet SST
My 1970 AMC Hornet SST. Only paid $700. It has had a few upgrades done to it by previous owners. The engine is now a 232 from a 78 Concord. It had a Carter BBD 2 BBL from a 258. The transmission is now a Torque-Command from a 72 Gremlin. The front disk brakes and rear end are from a 80 Spirit. The 100MPH speedo gauge is from a Gremlin and the Fuel Economy Meter is from a 75/77 Hornet/Gremlin. It may not be a matching number car anymore but its still a great ride and still all AMC.
