AMC AMX Go Package 390 V8 1968

Allmän beskrivning : Description
The AMC AMX is beginning to experience a big bounce-back in the classic car market, which is quite frankly overdue in our opinion, and if there's a car that's going to lead the resurgent charge, it's this period-correct, beautifully restored and preserved 1968 AMX Go-Package. Great colors are a big help, but this unique muscle car also includes goodies like a believed-original X-code 390 V8, a few choice options, a comfortable A/C interior, and an expensive restoration that helps it further stand out from the crowd.
Unlike most of the other pony cars, AMC's entry was strictly a 2-seater built for sport, making the AMX somewhat of an anomaly. For that reason alone it should be highly collectable, but for reasons we don't really understand, these great cars remain in the shadows of the other top players. That's really a shame, because after you see this one up close, you'll quickly discover how cool these cars really are. The bodywork was restored a few years ago and still looks really great today, and with Dark Red paint and painted-on silver stripes, the chunky cheese-wedge AMX looks fast and lean. Finished to a high driver-quality level, there's plenty of metallic flake in both shades of the paint that really pop out in the sun. Details like the vented big block hood, heavy-duty chrome bumpers, rocker panel moldings with attached side-pipe exhaust, a luggage rack, and special 'AMX' and '390' emblems are all in solid condition and there are no deviations from stock specifications other than the high-quality workmanship, which unfortunately wasn't always available at AMC. Bottom line, this is one the cleanest AMXs you'll find, but it's not some trailer queen you'll be afraid to go stand on. This girl was built to run.
The unique interior is really what always set the AMX apart, both from the rest of the muscle car pack and from its siblings at AMC. Far more upscale and aimed at a more discerning audience, it uses funky vinyl seat patterns to give it a sophisticated look that's perfect for the late 1960s, with the silver seats providing stark contrast to the rest of the deep red interior. There's a center console that houses the floor shifter for the automatic transmission, some woodgrained details, and just two seats certainly make it exclusive and the restoration took care of most of the interior bits, too. The gauges are deeply recessed into three pods in the dash, so it has a sporty look, and they include a factory tachometer and auxiliary gauges to give you a complete view under the hood. Options include seatbelts, a woodrimmed steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, and very rare factory air conditioning that's blowing hard and cold thanks to a modern hardware and R134a refrigerant. There is no back seat, of course, but there's a large carpeted area that matches the plush units up front and offers tons of storage and a nicely finished look. The original AM radio is long gone, replaced by a retro-style AM/FM/AUX unit that fits neatly inside the factory dash slot and the trunk is fitted with a factory vinyl mat and carries an original space-saver spare tire and jack set.
The X-code 390 cubic inch V8 was one of AMC's most potent powerplants in 1968, featuring 315 horsepower and an astounding 425 torque rating from the factory. The AMX already brought people into the showrooms in droves when it was first introduced in 1968, but everyone especially wanted the X-code Go-Package, which was touted as the only truly affordable American sports car that was ready to do 125 miles an hour with ease. With a Carter 4-barrel carburetor up top, it's a very strong runner that puts its light curb weight to good use with a very impressive power-to-weight ratio. The engine bay was detailed in correct red, white, and blue that seems to suit the all-American AMX, and there are signs of maintenance everywhere you look. A dual exhaust system that powers through the side pipes gives it an unmistakable throaty V8 sound that leaves no question about the performance potential of this 2-seater, but it never gets annoying on the highway. The 'Shift Command' 3-speed automatic transmission powers a set of highway-friendly gears out back inside the 'Twin-Grip' differential, and while the AMX Go-Pack was all about performance, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how well it rides thanks to power steering and power front disc brakes. And for fans of vintage muscle car performance, the Magnum 500 wheels will look very familiar and look exactly right wrapped in 235/60/14 BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials.
It won't be long until these are price out of reach, the AMX is just too cool to stay so cheap. Loaded with lots of build receipts, maintenance records, and service manuals, get one of the better ones we've seen before the market moves. Call now!
