AMC 1969 AMX is an American muscle car worth remembering

When it comes to car trademarks, AMC is not exactly a household name, and AMC may not be known to anyone born after the company’s demise. When Renault gained significant benefits in 1979, American auto companies began to hype. When AMC changed its name to Jeep Eagle in 1988 and was finally acquired by Chrysler in 1990, its best time was already behind the brand

It used to be the fourth largest automobile manufacturer in the United States. It began in 1954. The merger of Nash and Hudson represented the largest business combination in the history of the United States. Of course, in terms of sales and revenue, AMC still lags behind the Big Three (GM, Ford and Chrysler), but it has found a niche in the smaller lineups of Nash Metropolitan and Rambler American. The company is not without memorable models. Cars like the AMC Pacer still retain the prototype performance of aesthetic forgetting, but this is the charm of the car. (S eyes, this is a Porsche 928!) In just a few years, AMC has built some truly exciting high-performance cars

The RM Sotheby's Open Roads auction, which will be held online from April 21 to 29, will showcase rare AMC models that rarely appear on the market, especially in this case. From a series in Nashville, Tennessee, including the 1979 AMX, the Javelin AMX in 1974, the Gremlin X (5 liters) in 1972, the Hornet SC/360 in 1970 and the AMX California 500 Special in 1969. Although each may be a strange footnote in the American performance car book, each has its own attractive attributes, especially in the case of the 1969 AMX California 500 Special, followed by collectors

In the late 1960s, pony cars such as Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang occupied the largest share of the domestic performance car market, and AMC introduced the bold AMX model. The original design was introduced in 1968 and did not come out until 1970. Except for the Chevrolet Corvette, it was the only two-seater sports car made in the United States at that time. Its short wheelbase is also eye-catching. It is only 97 inches, which is 1 inch shorter than the ‘Vette’. The price is about US$3,250, which is about US$1,000 cheaper

The name AMX refers to American Motors experimental, which was the name used by some radical concept cars a few years ago. From 1971 to 1974, the subsequent four-seater javelins used the AMX mark, and later models have nothing to do with the original car (the most famous) such as the "California 500 Special" provided here. AMC's V-8 engine provides power for AMX. Customers can choose a small 290 ci, 343 ci or 390 ci (6.4 liter) engine. The latter is a big piece that can generate 315 hp of power and 425 ft lbs of torque, allowing the car to cover a speed of 0 to 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds, which is a normal value in the day

The top speed of street dress is less than 125 mph, but the handling is the name of
 the AMX game. Borg Warner four-speed gearbox, front disc brakes and tow bar are standard equipment. In 1969, green, blue and orange "Big Bad" paint options were introduced, which made the first-generation AMX an excellent muscle car

The California 500 Sale is a limited edition, offered in 1969, and sold only through members of the American Automobile Dealers Association of Southern California as part of a marketing campaign to commemorate the 1969 season at the Riverside International Speedway. The speed car for the competition is Big Bad Green painted with black stripes on 390 ci AMX. The car is also equipped with a saddle-shaped leather interior, "Sidewinder Exhausts" and a commemorative bronze medal. Of the 283 green examples made in 1969, it is estimated that only 23 were California 500 Specials wearing the same color scheme and color scheme as the pace car. Muscle car enthusiasts appreciate the appearance, performance and rarity of AMX. Among all these, the "California 500 Special" is almost the rarest one among the rare items
