If you’ve been searching for a muscle car with a record-breaking history, we have just the vehicle for you at this week’s much-anticipated Goodwill Auto Auction, where we’re featuring this 1969 American Motors AMX.
A true all-American muscle car, the AMX was produced by American Motors Corporation from 1968 to 1970. A competitor with the Chevrolet Corvette, the AMX is a two-seat GT-style sports car, unique for its short wheelbase.
The AMX was a regular performer on dragstrips across the country in the late 1960’s. In 1968, racecar driver Craig Breedlove set 106 world speed and endurance records, driving a custom-built AMX at over 200 mph.
The vehicle we’re featuring is a 4-speed automatic transmission with just 76,268 miles on its odometer. Its exterior is a stylish red, with the AMX signature “skunk stripe” featured on the vehicle’s hood. It seats two people on its classic leather seats, and its signature coupe design allows just enough trunk space.
The AMX receives high praise: numerous road tests described the new AMX as a “handsome two-seater with American-style acceleration and European-style handling,” and The American Society of Automotive Engineers selected the AMX as the “best engineered car of the year” in 1969 and 1970.
