Spotted! AMC Spirit AMX

0 101

Believe it or not, at one time the AMC AMX was a direct competitor of the Chevy Corvette. From 1968 – 1970 the AMX was the only car other than the Corvette to be a steel-bodied 2-seater. Despite being priced much, much lower the Corvette still won in the end.

This model is a 1979 Spirit AMX and was pretty much a replacement for the Gremlin. Not quite as cool as “Corvette Competitor” but still cool nonetheless. B.F. Goodrich tire company did sponsor two Spirits for the 24 hour race at the Nurburgring and they came #1 and #2 in their class. Also, Popular Science did a road test on the Spirit and said AMC was the “cleverest engineers in Detroit” because they got “$200 worth of looks for $100″. Chrysler then bought out the AMC in 1987 and continued with Jeep and Eagle vehicles.

This AMC Spirit AMX was spotted at Law Motors on 41st street. They seem to have a habit of having some rare cars on display!
