1969 AMC AMX – video walk around

This 1969 AMC AMX 2 door fastback coupe is fitted with a 4-speed manual transmission with a 390 cubic inch -4v V8 engine. That’s a big engine for such a small car (97 inch wheelbase). AMC boasted, ‘With the 390, you leap from 0 to 60 in less that 7 seconds.’

There are only 41,000 miles on the clock of this car but you might notice the seats aren’t original. They are actually out of a 1982 Dodge Daytona!

Introduced in 1968, American Motors Corp AMX was changed only slightly for 1969. The original sales brochure told us; ‘The AMX is long in front and short in back. A 2-seater, no-back-seater. It doesn’t drive you; you drive it!’

AMC produced 8,293 AMX cars for 1969 with a base price of $3297. This car has power brakes which was a $42 option.
