Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show in February of 1968, the AMX, which stood for "American Motors Experimental" was designed to help AMC boost its image amongst young car buyers by offering a sporty, high performance muscle car at an affordable price. As the first American-built steel-bodied two-seater designed since the first generation Ford Thunderbird was release in 1955, it was a direct competitor to the only other two-seater of the era, the Chevrolet Corvette, and for substantially less money. With its light weight and optional high compression 390 V8, the AMX was a capable of a 0-60 time of 6.6 seconds and could run the quarter mile in 14.8 seconds at 122 mph, thanks to its short wheelbase and favorable power to weight ratio. This 1969 AMC AMX was built the second week of June, 1969 at AMC's Kenosha, Wisconsin plant and is a factory X-code car with an optional 390ci V8 engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission that produces 315 horsepower and 425 ft. lbs. of torque. Under the hood, this AMX also features power steering, power brakes with front discs, and was originally an A/C car, although only the condenser and "Weather Eye" climate control remain. Additionally, this AMX was also ordered with AMC's optional "Go Package" which consisted of a number of upgrades including the aforementioned power front disc brakes, heavy duty cooling system with a 7-blade flex fan and shroud, space saver spare tire, handling package, dual exhaust with chrome tips, and a Twin-Grip limited slip differential. Originally Hunter Green Poly, the AMX has been restored some years ago, and was repainted in a two tone black and metallic red scheme, with the wheels painted to match. Inside the car, the upholstery has been redone in the original 931F Charcoal and the interior features a speedometer and tachometer, along with gauges for fuel and water temperature, while an aftermarket Stewart Warner oil pressure gauge has been added under the dash. Additionally, the interior also features an original clock that has been rebuilt and works, a factory original Hurst shifter with Hurst T-handle shift knob, accessory electric windshield wipers, aftermarket wooden steering wheel with AMX horn button, and the original American Motors radio has been rebuilt with an auxiliary input for peripheral devices, which works great. The AMX rides on a set of Cooper Cobra 215/65R15 Radial G/T tires mounted on a set of color matched American Racing mags that look great with the two-tone exterior and the car features all of its original badges. Overall, this AMX is a great example of a seldom seen muscle car whose values are ever increasing, and it runs and drives just as good as it looks. It's worth noting that in '69, AMC only built 8,293 AMX's, and of those only 3,620 were 390, 4-speed cars. However, the only numbers that really matter are three: 315 horsepower, 425 ft. lbs. of torque, and a car that weighs just 3,015 pounds.
