**Please note I am a very careful , quiet driver who has never lost a point so this video is an exception to how I drive and care for my cars normally.
WHY THE AMX IS SO REVERED AND SOUGHT AFTER AS A COLLECTIBLE:
SUPREME RARITY VALUE- Produced for only 3 years for the muscle car golden era of the late 60’s, with only 19,000 made in total of these exceptional cars, and being a 2 seater with their own unique body for these 3 years of AMX , makes 68-70 the standout collectible years (hemmings).
· “Only 2183 automatic 390 V8 AMX were made in 1969, some estimates suggest only 1000 are left and few in original condition” (Hot Cars)– this would mean very few with the revered factory GO Pack option are left.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE, HANDLING & STYLE - “one of the best-handling American-made cars of its day” (Classic Car History). “Great handling and outstanding performance” (Hemings). With high performance, sharp handling, and unique styling, the two-seat AMX was the crown jewel of AMC's performance years (Classic car history)
· ”AMX is an American exotic– limited production, special body, fantastic styling, incredible speed and performance--in other words, it's got the goods and it's rare to boot.” Hemings.
· In 1968 this car set 106 world speed and endurance records in Texas.
· The American society of Automotive Engineers named the AMX as the best engineered car of the year in 1969 and 1970
· Known for introducing many industry firsts and it is the ONLY American 2 seater sports car apart from the corvette.
· The AMX was offered alongside the Shelby mustangs in the famous Hertz Rent-a-racer program in the late 60’s.
· Listed among the “21 hottest cars that enthusiasts wanted and will want tomorrow” Hemings
· “With rarity and high interest, boasting sporting lines and performance options for spice” meant Hemings included the AMX in their top American collectors cars special.
· “Appealing package for adrenaline junkies and guys who have an appetite for something a little off beat and different “ Old Cars Weekly
· James May book of buying collectors cars describes the 69 AMX as attracting more attention, with the wow factor and bringing more pleasure whether driven or a in garage than the prestigious Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

MECHANICAL—RUNS & DRIVES FAULTLESSLY. HANDLES LIKE AN ABSOLUTE DREAM & POWER PACKED!
The Go Pack performance extras really make this an outstanding and quick driver. The 390 V8 engine sounds and feels extremely strong and healthy, this car is just fantastic to drive.
4 BARREL CARBY
AWESOME POWER-the 390 V8 had 315 HP from factory
- clocked 14.4 in 1/4 mile– as quick as the XY GTHO
"The 390 was the full enchilada with a forged steel crank, forged rods and even larger diameter rod journals. And if that seems like going a bit overboard, remember that 1968 was when the muscle car thing was at its absolute craziest and manufacturers were not afraid to spend big bucks to tip each other out of the boat." Unique cars AMX feature
STARTS EASILY first time, every time.
Heavy duty alternator as part of Go pack
HANDLES EXCEPTIONALLY WELL. The AMX is renowned for its incredible handling and it really makes this the best feeling of all my cars I’ve had to drive.

Steering was power-assist recirculating-ball system. “

- 13/16 Piston front and rear shocks
- Quick ratio Steering
