1968 AMX

Muscle Car Review - - The Bottom End -

Of­ten a fol­lower in the per­for­mance mar­ket, AMC ac­tu­ally arrived early to the party with the 1965 Mar­lin. But it was the 1968 AMX that would be AMC’s big­gest risk of all, a wel­ter­weight of en­ergy wound up and ready to fight de­spite be­ing the small­est of the bunch. The stubby two-seater had a spunky vis­ual sig­na­ture like no other car of that era, thanks to a wide body on a short­ened Javelin wheel­base. The fast­back roofline, long hood, and tight cock­pit gave the AMX a stance that de­fied larger cars, mak­ing them look al­most heav­ier and full of ex­cess.
