1972 AMC Hornet 2 door sedan

This car takes the old Hudson series name "Hornet"...and is a very nice example of same. I believe the interior was reupholstered, but that is a guess. Nice, practical, economical car..but competition was fierce at the time.

1986 Ford Thunderbird coupe
Really a nice car! The interior is in as new condition. Occasionally we get these low mileage cars down here in Florida...I myself owned a used low mileage 1990 Cougar which gave excellent service. The interiors of these cars are really top notch..the upholstery is very posh! May have the 5.0 engine..not sure if they even installed a V6 in these.





1970 Chevelle SS396 hardtop
Beautiful car, perfect paint and interior, and the engine compartment is so clean and detailed! In my mind, a perfect car for someone looking for an SS Chevelle.





1974 AMC Matador Oleg Cassini edition
What a rare car! These cars never really sold in volume..the styling was a bit controversial at the time. This Oleg Cassini edition is even more rare! Lincoln was into naming special editions of their cars, so AMC was just following an industry custom! They also made Gremlins with Levi interiors!





1972 Chevy Monte Carlo
Just a beautiful car. I'm not a big fan of vinyl tops, but this one looks well cared for..and it really compliments the car. A really nice example of Chevy's interpretation of a personal car that does double duty as a family sedan...a touch of luxury to the low priced field.

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.

AMC HORNET AT CARLSBAD
This is the sequel to AMC at Riverside Raceway. Carlsbad was a dragstrip used by SCCA sometimes as a road racing track by using auxillary roads plus the straight of the drag strip. This track was roughly near San Diego, CA. It is no longer in business as a track such as shown here. The last time I was at Carlsbad I had a FTD (fastest time of day). At the end I show the business I got into in 1994 after I stopped racing.
