Hi, You are bidding on what I would consider a time capsuleWe bought this car from an older gentleman who lives in kenosha wi. Where this car was built and he also worked there when he bought his new AMX.He had parked the car for the last 13 years in his dry garageAs he had parked it he still maintained itIt has all new brakes and rotorsantifreeze looked like new when I got it I changed the water pump and fuel pump,Just things I like to do when a car has sat so long..I also cleaned out the carb. Changed plugs and wires and this car runs and drives like newHe informed me he had got a dent in the passenger front fender and had it repaired..
I would drive this car anywhere I might suggest a front end alignment it pulls slightly when you brake.
As far as the body and floors and underside of car I see no cover ups It looks like all factory never had rust don't have any dings to speak ofI wouldn't say laser straightBut no AMC ever wasI would say the car is the best survivor I have seenI haven't tried to reprain't engine or tidy anything up I think the car speaks for itself with its well kept appearance.. Although the front fender was resprayed it was blended perfectlyas far as the interior carpet looks like new the seat are a very little fadedit has a factory tach. I'm not sure why but it isn't working I have a friend coming to look at it tomarowI will post if we get it working..It has an automatic shifter on the floor,has original spare and jack..however he did put an aftermarket c.d.player stereo in.dash is perfectI do have a perfect AM FM. AMC stereo available to the winner for extra cost if interestedalso has its original 258 engine with air conditioning that still works..might need a chargeTilt wheel..horn works all lights as they should door sill plates are shiny like the day they came with the carI believe this was the last year for the AMXThe clear title even states AMX.Electric trunk button works perfectcould use new hatch cylinders or shocks they are weakWell I will post more pics this week.i didn't clean out the inside to my standardswhoever wins this car will be very happy with this reliable piece of American motors historyThanks for looking and Good Luck!! I will answer all questions as promptly as I can..Thanks. Sorry I did forget to mention this car is equipped with a factory posi-traction rear end..
