1968 AMC AMX

This 1968AMC AMX has spent its life in Northern California with three owners. It is an early-production Go Package car that is powered by the top of the line 390ci V8 backed by a 4-speed manualtransmission. Only 6,725 AMX were builtin 1968. Purchased in1995 with 39k miles and used sparingly since, with just over 41k miles now indicated. Recent work includes a brake overhaul with a new master cylinder, brake booster and rubber lines. The suspension was also freshened with new rubber along with a newexhaust and fresh tires.

Originally shipped from Kenosha with Scarab Gold paint andblack stripes, the car was reportedly painted black by the dealership when new in orderto satisfy customer demands resulting from ablack car being used in the promotional literature. Go Package cars came with the optional dualracing stripes as well as Magnum 500 wheels, here wearing the correct original AMC center caps and anew set of BFGoodrich redlines.
