The latest edition of Street Legal TV’s “Muscle Cars You Should Know” features the bright burning but short-lived AMC S/S AMX. How short-lived? How about only 52 cars ever built? Once built by AMC, the cars were shipped to Hurst and the engines to Crane to work their magic with 1/4 mile domination the goal. Read more info on this rare piece of AMC history at Street Legal TV.

PPG sponsored a competition among five manufacturers to design a custom pace car for the 1981 IndyCar World Series. AMC took a Spirit AMX and built a completely new fiberglass body and added a turbocharged and fuel injected 258 ci inline six. The result is a one of one factory custom car!

Daniel Strohl at Hemmings spotted this awesome 1979 AMC Spirit AMX in their classifieds, which is said to be a rust free, two-owner car. The original 304 has been replaced with a fairly stout 360, so this thing is probably a hoot to drives, especially with the 4-speed. The $13,900 asking price seems pretty reasonable for such a solid and unique car–one of just 1,834 produced. More pics after the jump, and be sure to check out the ad at Hemmings!
AMC built just a few of these fiberglass-bodied AMX prototypes. This particular example was supposed to be incinerated, but instead was rescued by a line worker in AMC’s Kenosha assembly plant–for just $50! It is still owned by the same family and is featured in the current issue of Hemmings Classic Car.
