1969 AMC AMX

Recommended Posts

I've been looking around here and I've been loving all the awesome models I've been seeing. I also don't see many AMC's other than the occasional gremlin. So I decided to share one of mine with you all. (I build a lot of AMC's....)

One of the best/cleanest builds of this kit I've ever seen. The color looks great, too. What's the paint?

@Classicgas I don't fully remember where the engine came from, but this kit was originally the Shirley Shahan AMX, so I do believe it had the proper engine, instead of the other 69 AMX Johan kit where they put a 67 AMC engine in it instead. I'll get some more pictures of the engine and underside when I get the chance to. 

@Snake45 The paint is actually from a spray can of Testors Metallic Green enamel. Its probably the nicest paint job I've ever done and I don't think I could do it again.

Looks a lot better than mine.  I found one on Ebay a few years ago.  It was built, but unpainted. However, they put the decals on it and I've debated whether or not to paint the model because those stripes are raised.

AMX has always been one of my favorite cars from the muscle car era.  Don't see to many of them around anymore, good job on yours!

For whatever reason the pics aren't showing on my end at work on IE. I went on my phone and WOW! Very, very nice! As some know, I once owned the 1:1 of this car------a '69 with the 390/4spd. One of the best cars I've ever owned!

Absolutely terrific color on yours!

One of mine too, and no....even at the car shows there just aren't many of them. What I liked best about mine is I very seldom saw myself coming and going. When I did pass someone with an AMX (or any old AMC for that matter), we'd wave to each other. ;)
