Zero rust whatsoever. 100% complete. All numbers matching. All original from hub caps to air cleaner, nd exhaust manifolds. The original owner was 56 when he bought the car new. The miles are actual, ot turned over and claimed to be whats showing like most guys do...what a bunch of B.S. if you ask me. The AMX has never been cleaned since 1973, ther than me hosing it off before putting it my garage the day I brought it home. No cracks in the dash. Interior needs cleaned too. Seats, oor panels, arpet, ash, teering wheel, ll perfect...just dusty. The car was covered in so much dust, ou couldn't tell what color the car was underneath.
I owner, lways garaged never moved since 1973. 58,000 real actual miles. Real time capsule. Not a barn find, ut a garage find here in Southern California. Orig black plates. Engines runs unbelievable. Disc brakes still need to be bled, nd gas tank needs cleaned. I let the engine idle for 20 minutes, fter bypassing the gas tank, nd shooting Marvel mystery oil down each cylinder. Little smoke for the first minute, nd cleared right up. Perfect idle, ith great throttle response...no hesitation. Run very cool too...just unbelievable. No lifter noise, o smoke after the first minute. If the brakes were bled, nd gas tank cleaned, ou could lay posi marks all the way down the street.
Walking out the door for Palm Springs as I type this, hats why it's in a little strange order, nd wording, ushed. Will dig it out of my garage and take good pictures. Won't respond to any requests until Sunday. Title is in my name.Thanks, im

Just got back from Palm Springs. I pulled the car out and took some pictures. The picture of the license plates show the dealer plate the original owner used too. The registration for the dealer plate is in the picture of the glove box. It was issued in 1971. The orig. rear license plate has it's only registration stickers, ust 1968 and 1969. The dealer plate was used for the next few years. The last picture shows it's stable mate. Both cars were put in the garage at the same time of his new house being completed and never left the garage. All the neighbors came out of their houses to tell me they have never seen the cars out of his garage. It was a big deal for them.The Lincoln has only two years of registration stickers...1969 and 1970. I confused the mileage from the Lincoln for the AMX. The mileage on the AMX is 69,753. The mileage on the Lincoln Mark III is the 58,000 miles and change. Sorry about that.To make it up, f the high bidder wants the Mark III too, ou can have it for $2,000. That's $1,500 less than what I have into to it.
The plastic piece between the rear tail lights are missing. I looked for it and just can't locate it. I might have left it at the original owners house. So, lease don't count on receiving that piece.
Like I said before, ERO rust. The paint is old lacquer, nd will need to be puffed out. It has touch up in places and a couple door dings. To the left of the left tail pipe in the lower valence, e backed into something, ike a paint can, nd wrinkled it slightly.If I saw this car at a car show or cruise night, would go back again and again to look at it. I personelly love untouched cars, urvivor type cars.
Again, f you missed it, he mileage on the AMX is 69,753. The mileage on the Lincoln Mark III in the last picture is 58,000. Sorry again for the confusion. Both cars came from the same original owner.

The one picture I took is of the shoulder straps, ot sure of they all came with those in 1968.
The passenger side valve cover has the little tag on the front too.
