I will add some interior pictures tomorrow morning.
Here is some general information on AMX:
The AMX name originates from the "American Motors eXperimental" code used on a concept vehicle and then on two prototypes shown on the company's "Project IV" automobile show tour in 1966. One was a fiberglass two-seat "AMX", nd the other was a four-seat "AMX II". Both of these radically styled offerings reflected the company's strategy to shed its "economy car" image and appeal to a more youthful, erformance-oriented market.
The original AMX full-scale models were developed in 1965 by AMC's advanced styling studios under the direction of Charles Mashigan. The two-seat AMX was "big hit on the auto show circuit in 1966" and featured a rumble seat that opened out from the rear decklid for extra passengers called a "Ramble" seat. AMC executives saw the opportunity to change the consumers' perception of the automaker from Romney's economy car image, o the realities of the new marketplace interested in sporty, erformance oriented vehicles. Robert B. Evans requested a car like the AMX to be put into production quickly.
Two simultaneous development programs emerged for a production car: one for a modified Javelin and another for a completely new car bodied in fiberglass. The first approach was selected allowing AMC to use its existing technology and unibody manufacturing expertise to make fairly inexpensive modifications to the Javelin approximating the prototype's styling and proportions. The automaker could turn out steel bodies in large numbers, o it rejected developing plastic (or fiberglass) bodies because those are intended only for low-production models. The first fully operational unit debuted as part of AMC's AMX project in 1966. The once-"frumpy" automaker jumped on the "pony car bandwagon" with its "attractive Javelin" and soon introduced the "unique" AMX featuring a design where "hoods didn't come any longer, or decks any shorter".
The AMX was introduced to the press at the Daytona International Speedway on 15 February 1968; just over four months after the Javelin went on sale. In the demonstrations on the race track, he new AMXs ran at speeds up to 130mph (209km/h). American Motors' group vice president, ic Raviolo, escribed the AMX as "the Walter Mitty Ferrari." The AMX was designed to "appeal to both muscle car and sports car enthusiasts, wo camps that rarely acknowledged each other's existences." The problem was the "tire-melting" acceleration of the two-seater made it "a quick car that handled like a sports car, onfusing the buying public." Automotive journalist Tom McCahill summed up, the AMX is the hottest thing to ever come out of Wisconsin and ... you can whip through corners and real hard bends better than with many out-and-out sports cars."
1969 AMC AMX
The AMX's full second model year saw only slight changes, xcept for a $52 increase in its base price. The five-spoke Magnum 500 steel road wheels were no longer chrome plated, ut now came with a stainless steel trim ring. The racing stripes were now available in five colors. The interior featured a revised instrumentation with the 0–8000rpm tachometer moved to match the speedometer that was now calibrated to 140mph (230km/h). Interior door panels were revised, arpeting was upgraded, ew leather upholstery was optional, nd the gas pedal became suspended. Later production cars received a hood over the instruments in front of the driver. Trunk capacity was 9.7 cubic feet (275l).

I've added several pictures today. One shows the 390 cast into the side of the block. Another shows the tilt wheel and reclining seats. The data plate from the door is also pictured. In the trunk you will see not only the original sparebut ALSOthe original inflation bottle for that tire, arked American Motors. This car is VERY original, great driver and in great shape. I have thoroughly enjoyed this car. So many people these days don't have a clue what these cars are but they know they love them once they see them!On Dec-21-15 at 21:13:38 PST, eller added the following information:
An Ebay member contacted me asking for the code attached to the passenger side valve cover. That code is 204W07. I've learned this code indicates an engine build date of April 7. The door data plate, his code, nd the dash code all appear to indicate this car to be correct, atchingand all original.
