Unique Of The Week: 1970 AMC AMX

As the story goes, some automakers live and others, well, they go bankrupt. AMC was one of the latter and their AMX never had the chance to evolve into a modern day muscle car like the Mustang and the Camaro have done. Found on eBay, this 1970 AMC AMX has been stored for years, but the seller claims it's still in solid condition. It's also been called the last "true AMX." Power comes from a 6.4-liter, 390 cu in, 325hp V8 that's mated to a floor-mounted four-speed manual transmission.

Other features include a dealer installed AM radio, an all-new clutch, power steering, bucket seats, tachometer, power disc brakes, and a sport steering wheel. It was originally painted golden lime gold with black mask, but somewhere along the way a previous owner decided to change it to the current burgundy. There's some rust damage at both the front and rear end, but that shouldn't be much of a problem for someone who knows what they're doing. The interior seems to also be in pretty good shape, with the exception of the torn front bucket seats.

Performance wise, it could go from 0 to 60mph in 6.6 seconds with a top speed of 122mph. Overall, it appears to be in solid shape and would be a wonderful project car. Its current bid is $7,877, but the reserve hasn't been met yet. Bidding ends on July 3rd. Photos courtesy of first68ss via eBay.
