Inside you'll find Sport Vinyl or Caberfae Corduroy bucket seats, brushed aluminum instrument panel overlays, leather wrapped sport steering wheel, center console with armrest and a full array of functional gauges. And don't forget the AMX handling experience with rally-tuned suspension package, performance-tuned exhaust sound (with optional V-8 and manual transmission).

The 1979 AMX was my first car. I worked two jobs during summer break to buy it in 1993 when I was 17. I had the 304 w/ the Borg Warrner 4sp. I had no mechanic skills at the time, and it needed some work. Wish I had never gotten rid of it.

Got a blue one in the garage with about 10,000 original miles on it!
