Description for AMC AMX 1968

The AMC AMX is overdue for a big bounce-back in the market, nd if there's a car that's going to lead the charge, t's this period-correct 1968 AMX. Great colors are a big help, ut it also includes goodies like a Z-code 343 Typhoon V8 and an expensive restoration. Unlike most of the other pony cars, MC's entry was strictly a 2-seater, aking the AMX somewhat of an anomaly. For that reason alone it should be highly collectable, ut for reasons we don't really understand, hese great cars remain in the shadows of the other players. That's really a shame, ecause after you see this one up close, ou'll discover why these are really cool cars. The bodywork was restored a few years ago, nd with bright red paint and white stripes, he chunky AMX looks fast and lean. There are signs of professional work everywhere you look, ncluding a final wet sand and buff that gave the paint a fantastic shine. Details like the chrome bumpers, ocker panel moldings, nd special AMX emblems are all in excellent condition and there are no deviations from stock specifications other than the high-quality workmanship, hich wasn't always available at AMC.The interior is really what sets the AMX apart, oth from the rest of the muscle car pack and from its siblings at AMC. Far more upscale and aimed at a different audience, t uses funky plaid seat inserts to give it a sophisticated look that's perfect for the late 1960s. A console, ome woodgrained details, nd just two seats certainly make it exclusive and the restoration took care of most of the interior bits, oo. The gauges are deeply recessed into three pods in the dash, o it has a sporty look, nd it includes a tachometer and auxiliary gauges to give you a complete view under the hood. There is no back seat, f course, ut there's a large carpeted area that offers tons of storage and a nicely finished look. The original AM radio is still in the dash and the trunk is fitted with more black carpets and carries a full-sized spare tire.The 343 Typhoon V8 under the hood was one of the most potent (280 HP) powerplants you could get in any AMC, nd with a 4-barrel carburetor it has a rather impressive torque curve. AMC didn't stamp VIN's on their blocks back then, ut this original T-Code car definitely still houses a proper period-stamped drivetrain, hat after inspection, eaves little doubt with us that this is a numbers matching car, ven if a '68 AMX can never truly be called as such. It looks fairly stock aside from the brightly colored ignition system components, nd even carries a correct set of decals on the original air cleaner. Power steering and brakes, lus the rare but super fun Shift Command 3-speed automatic transmission, ean that this car is very user-friendly and the burly V8 sounds spectacular exhaling through a dual exhaust system with new mufflers. And everyone had a sporty wheel on their car, ith AMC using a variation of the ever-popular Magnum 500 that continues to be the best-looking wheel of the period. Wrapped in fresh Coker redline radials, t has a period "Go-Pac" look and handling. It can't be long now, he AMX is just too cool to stay so cheap. Loaded with lots of ownership history, aintenance records, nd AMC-issued manuals, et one of the better ones we've seen before the market moves. Call now!
