AMC Hornet + 305cid+TH350.mp4
1970 AMC Hornet, Chevy 305cid + TH350 transmission. Engine has Edelbrock Accu-Drive timing gear set (hence the whine) and Edelbrock Air Gap RPM + 1405 carburettor (hence the raised hood). No road driving with this one yet, just got the brakes upgraded to 10" drums in the front and making simple tests driving around the building.





The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.





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.

1976 AMC Hornet X for sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis, MO showroom
Stock #5619-STL For sale is a 1976 AMC Hornet X. The Hornet X was AMC's sports coupe and they are getting harder and harder to find. Development of the Hornet model took AMC three years, a million man-hours, and $40 million. The Hornet was an all-new design sharing no major body components, but utilizing some of the Rambler American's chassis and drivetrain. An all-new front suspension with anti-brake dive was developed for AMC's large-sized "senior" 1970 models, and instead of developing lighter components for the new compact-size platform, the same parts were incorporated into the Hornet. This '76 is painted gloss black with white stripes running the length of the car. The interior is comprised of black vinyl. Under the hood you will find the numbers matching 4.0L inline six cylinder engine and an automatic transmission both of which have 20,000 miles since rebuild. The 4.0L engine is similar to the engine used by Jeep and is known for its durability and lifespan. Other options include: A/C, AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Hatchback Tent, Power Steering, Seat Belts, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. To view this car please visit www.gate-wayclassiccars.com or our St. Louis showroom.

Drive Test 1971 AMC SC/360 Hornet Eddie Stakes
Memorial Day 2012. Zero miles on 1971 AMC SC/360 Hornet. Brought the car out for Memorial Day to honor our veterans who have proudly served this great country & nothing gets stares, cell phone photos, waves & thumbs up like a red, white and blue AMERICAN Motors car. I still need to put in sill plates, the radio, detail engine bay, and install the ram air pieces taken off several years ago to reproduce of which only the flapper door was made. Also found out the small gas tube filler hose has crack, so while putting 93 octane at Exxon at Wilcrest & I-10 gas was dripping out and found this out, so will have to change this quickly. Has several nice comments at the Exxon from fellow Houston motorists including the clerk who came out for a look at this busy store. While driving off a guy in Uncle Sam getup for the Big Tree place at Wycliffe @ I-10 put down his large sign to give son Noah & me two thumbs up when we passed! The short film was taken at Brittmoore & I-10 at the old Roomstore, now Doomstore (it's last 2 days this week). I will have to slightly adjust the timing and Holley 750 on this also as noticed it bogged slightly in 3rd. The car is original 360cid/280hp, Hurst 4 speed, electric wipers, power steering, and 3:91 Twin Grip. It is the ONLY known Medium Blue Metallic 71 SC/360 know to exist out of 112 I have documented with the SC/360 Registry in 12 years. http://www.planethoustonamx.com/sc360/sc_registry.htm Total production for AMC's rarest muscle car was 784 units, a 1/3rd of production of the Rebel Machine and 1/2 of production of SC/Rambler. Fun car to drive, very light, about 3000 lbs.
