Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is proud to offer this burnt orange metallic 1969 AMX for sale. The AMX is a two-seat GT-style sports car that was produced by American Motors Corporation from 1968 to 1970. The AMX was also classified as a muscle car but differed from other American cars at the time because of its short wheelbase. The name AMX is an acronym for American Motors eXperimental, which was a code assigned to concept vehicles in the mid-sixties. The AMX was also the only American-built steel-bodied two-seater of its time, the first since the 1955-1957 Ford Thunderbird, and rivaled the only other two-seat American muscle car: the Chevrolet Corvette. After only a short three-year production run, the AMX was discontinued in 1970, and was replaced by the Javelin from '71-'74. This classic AMX makes quite the statement with its burnt orange metallic paint covering its sweet vintage bodylines, and the black racing stripes that continue the muscle car look. Under the hood of this beautiful car is a potent 390 CID V8, topped by a big 4BBL carb. Firing it up produces a loud enough rumble that it turns heads every time the pedal hits the floor. The 4-speed manual transmission behind it is just what most drivers want, and it shifts smooth throughout all gears. Long tube headers scavenge the exhaust gases into a true dual exhaust with that epic rumble muscle car aficionados love to hear. A big aluminum radiator and electric fan help keep the big 390 cooled. Front disc brakes improve the stopping power, and the BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires provide much better handling than the bias ply tires of 1969. Wrapped around a set of American Racing TorqLite 5-spoke aluminum wheels, its rubber is sized 225/60R15 in front, and 255/60R15 out back, so there's plenty of rubber on the road.
