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.

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.





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.





1967 AMC Marlin
Marlin was made for the 1965 through 67 model years. The first two years, it was part of the Classic lineup...in 67 it was an Ambassador. The 343 c.i. engine was new for that year. The car was very dramatic, and indeed, it resembled the first generation Charger over at Dodge. The both shared small trunk lids, a factor that limited their practicality for any kind of load.

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.

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.

1962 AMC Rambler American
I thought you might like a look at this really clean little 1962 AMC Rambler American. It's still powered by the original flathead straight six, with only 78,xxx original miles. The paint is slick and the interior has been completely redone. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

77 AMX introduction
To complement Collectible Automobile Magazine's article on the 1977-78 AMX, Torq-O mined another gem from the Torq-O Media Archive. Here's a segment from the 1977 AMC Dealer Introduction Show featuring the introduction of the Hornet AMX. Back in those days, dealer announcement shows were Broadway-style productions with Broadway actors. The Fonz-like character is a direct "adaptation" from the Happy Days TV show complete with non-1950's hair (just like Chachi's!).
