1969 AMC AMX For Sale

Advertisement

by Mike –

The AMX was made by American Motors from 1968 through 1970 and was classified as a muscle car, but it was unique because of its short wheelbase and was also considered a sports car.

It was the only two-seat sports car made in America besides the Chevrolet Corvette at the time and was a competitor for the Corvette at a much lower price plus the AMX had a 1 inch shorter wheelbase.

Craig Breedlove

In 1968 two special AMXs set 106 speed and endurance records driven by land speed record holder Craig Breedlove, Ron Dykes and Lee Breedlove (Craig’s wife).

Craig Breedlove also drove the AMX at the Bonneville Salt Flats achieving 189 mph in a United States Auto Club sanctioned run, and an unofficial run of more than 200 mph.

This 1969 AMC AMX is For Sale

This 1969 AMC AMX has been beautifully restored to show room condition and has several popular options that include AMC Go Pack and the extremely rare AMC Rally Pack with AC. This may be one of the nicest AMX’s out there with factory and aftermarket goodies. This vehicle has spent the last 2 years on display at the California Automobile Museum.

Interior

The interior on this AMX is in excellent shape and has some fantastic features. The first and probably most sought after is the Rally Pack with the AC vents, believed to have been 1 of 4 in 1969 and less than 1% of 1970 AMX’s were known to have this option. The seats are in excellent shape and do not show any signs of wear. The headliner and carpets are also in fantastic shape. The walnut grain interior trim pieces are in very nice shape throughout the interior. The center console is in fantastic shape. The original Owners Manual and Service Policy and Warranty books are still in their dust covers. The air conditioning operating instructions are also included on the driver’s sun visor as well. The dash is in great overall shape but does have a small crack at one of the screw holes towards the driver’s side and that is really the only flaw found inside this vehicle. The trunk area is very sanitary with the original space saver spare and inflator canister.

Mechanical

This AMX’s X code 390 cu. in. 315 HP engine runs extremely well and has a great sound to it. It fires up easily and idles nicely. The Shift Command 3 speed automatic transmission shifts as it should. The engine and transmission are still original and have never been rebuilt but were removed, cleaned and painted when restored. The AMC’s Go Package consisted of 4bbl carburetor, dual exhaust, power disc brakes, posi-rear end, handling package, seven blade flex fan, heavy duty cooling, fan shroud, space saver spare and the over the top twin stripes. This vehicle is equipped with Air Conditioning, Power Disc Brakes, Power Steering and Side Pipes. The engine has been dressed up and the bay is very clean with the correct details under the hood.

Electrically this vehicle is in great shape. All of the lights and signals work as they should. The gauges in dash cluster all work as they should but the gauges in the Rally Pack were not hooked up.

AMC AMX

Overview

This vehicle has been gone through top to bottom and by looking at the underside it shows! This AMX was restored 4-5 years ago by the current owner who has won several awards at various Concours events. This beautiful AMX is museum quality and had an outstanding restoration. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer AMX with these options.

Design Awards

The AMX introduced many car design firsts and was named the American Society of Automotive Engineers “Best Engineered Car of the Year” for 1969 and 1970. Road tests by car journalists resulted in 0 to 60 MPH times in the mid-6 second range and a top speed of 122 MPH.

  2. Mike,

    Seeing this AMX for sale and the mention of Craig Breedlove reminded me of one of the first stories I contributed to Musclecar Enthusiast back in 2004. It was the actual Craig Breedlove car and included an interview with the man himself, Craig Breedlove at his shop in Rio Vista, California. What was supposed to be a short one-hour interview stretched out to over three hours.

    Although Musclecar Enthusiast ceased publication in 2010, I do have a copy of the PDF posted in an online archive and can be viewed here.

    As I still have all the materials used to produce this story, look for it to appear in a future issue of my new magazine, Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car.
