V8-Swapped 1982 AMC Eagle SX/4 Barn Find!

Perfect Patina? 1977 AMC Gremlin X

Worth Fixing? $3,600 1969 AMC AMX Project

The AMC AMX was an interesting hybrid, but not the kind we think of today. Part muscle car and part sports car. Excluding the Chevy Corvette, there was no other U.S. production car like it. It looked like the… more»

Big Bad Orange 1970 AMC AMX Go Pack!

The AMX was a two-seat version of the Javelin, both introduced during the 1968 model year. It was a muscle car and it was fast, but it was not a big seller, even by AMC standards. In three short… more»

Fix and Drive? 1975 AMC Gremlin

For 1970, AMC re-invented its approach to compact cars by replacing the rather staid American with the new Hornet. As an encore and a shot at the sub-compact imports, too, the Gremlin followed a few months later. The Gremlin… more»

Hot Rod 1974 AMC Gremlin!

It is rare that I start a review with a picture of the interior but this 1970 AMC Gremlin has the optional Levi Complete interior. The car is listed here on eBay with 2 days remaining and the winning… more»

390-Powered Project: 1969 AMC Javelin

401 Powered! 1973 AMC Ambassador

Gremlins Begone! 1980 AMC Spirit DL

1972 AMC Javelin AMX Barn Find!

American Motors turned a lot of heads in the late 1960s with the AMX, a shortened two-seat version of the Javelin. It would become AMC’s first and only attempt at building a sports car. As a muscle car, they… more»

Nicest One Left? 1981 AMC Spirit DL

One of the best and most reliable cars that I have ever owned was a 1991 Dodge Spirit that I put over 300,000 miles on. Oddly enough, we also own a Hoover Spirit vacuum cleaner. Neither of those two… more»

Stored Since ’84: 1970 AMC Rebel Machine

Custom Sleeper: 1966 Rambler American 440

The American served as the entry-level car for AMC between 1958 and 1969 and was the second incarnation of the Rambler compact from the Nash-Hudson days. Until the Hurst SC/Rambler was built in limited numbers in the American’s final… more»
