1976 AMC Hornet X for sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis, MO showroom
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. For
more information please call 618-271-3000.

1973 AMC HORNET HATCHBACK COUPE -- NOTICEABLE CHANGES
AMC's compact Hornet earned noticeable appearance changes for 1973. One
change of note was the windshield moving forward. All hornets were six and
half longer this year but still on the 108 inch wheelbase as before. The
new recoverable bumper system was AMC's way to meet the federal regulation
which required font bumpers to withstand a 5 mph impact. The Hornet came
in four body styles: 2 & 4 door sedans, the Sportabout wagon and the
hatchback coupe like this one shown. Engines: 232 cid 6 cylinder with 100
bhp., or a 6, 258 cid with 110 bhp., V8's, 304 cid with 150 bhp., or the
360 cid with 175 bhp. This hatchback coupe is the first year model from
AMC and has the sporty " X " option package with it's distinct roofline,
hinged floor panel and ample load space. This hatchback coupe cost $2,587
at the dealer. Thanks very much for viewing this AMC Hornet Hatchback
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.

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.
