Two-door sports coupe powered by a 315-horsepower V8


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1968 AMC AMX sports coupe that’s described as having an original, rust-free body.

“The AMX two-door coupe launched in 1968 as a GT-style muscle car from American Motors Corporation, positioned as a high-performance version of the four-seat Javelin,” AutoHunter notes in the car’s listing.

This first-year example has been resprayed in Bonze Metallic and features dual white accent stripes on the upper panels, an integrated rear spoiler, AMX badging on the sail panels, and a dual exhaust system at the rear.

It sits on Magnum 500-style 14-inch wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A raised white letter tires.

The AMX’s interior houses reupholstered black vinyl bucket seats with matching door panels, dash and carpeting. Woodgrain veneer is found on the door panels and steering wheel.

Interior amenities include air conditioning and a push-button American Motors radio.

Under the hood sits a 315-horsepower 390cid V8 linked to a console-shifted BorgWarner Shift Command 3-speed automatic transmission.

The odometer shows 73,000 miles, although true chassis mileage is unknown.

This AMX’s auction ends October 5 at 11:20 a.m. PDT.
