Ma Mopar’s elephant engine got some serious respect this weekend in New York’s Saratoga Spa State Park at Hemmings Motor News Concourse d’Elegance. I wish I lived anywhere near there! I can almost hear that sweet lumpy idle. The article in Hemmings gives a great synopsis of the engine that dominated NASCAR. Read about it here.
Update: you can see some pics here.
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.
