was not exactly famous for making exciting cars, but then one day they decided to create the exotic AMX. Produced from 1968 to 1970, this baby was a smaller and improved version of the 2+2 Javelin, with a shorter wheelbase, a compact body and an aggressive, sporty look.

Customers could also opt for the “Go Package” performance and handling upgrades for an even more thrilling experience. It had a better power-to-weight ratio than all mid-sized muscle cars of the time and many Americans fell in love with it in an instant. It offered 315 hp and a top speed of 140 mph. Back in 1970, an AMX sold for almost $3,400, but now its value has soared to $10,000-$35,000.

  • Claim to Fame: The AMX was the only two-seater production car from American Motors
  • Soundtrack: “Play Misty for Me” theme song. No, Eastwood did not drive one of these, but there were a couple of scenes in which a green AMX appeared.
  • Ideal Passenger: A 1970s cute blonde with mini skirt and go-go boots.
  • Where to Drive It: A road course to remind you of the SCCA Trans-Am, where the AMX raced.
  • How to Get Behind the Wheel: These babies are rare and expensive now, but you might put your hands on an AMX at a muscle car auction.
  • Did You Know? Some 50 AMX SS examples were built especially for racing purposes, with 350 hp.
