Love the '69

I've always preferred the '68-9 AMX and Javelin over all the others.  I've never owned an AMX, but I've owned three '69 Javelins and two '70 Javelins, all SSTs with Go Pak.  All but one were 390s, the current '69 is a 343.  Both '69 390 cars were 4 speed models, and one of the '70s was a 390 4 speed, the other was a 390 automatic.  The current '69 343 car has an automatic.  I realize the '70s have more power and "better" front end suspension.  I still prefer the '69 look with the wrap around taillights and the separate grille opening, as well as the interior treatment, especially the dash.

I agree about preferring the earlier styling, although that '70 hood scoop is awesome. These days I don't care as much about going fast so any V8 will do. I'm happy to have my 290 AMX, although I wish it was a 4-speed.

So many AMCs that I enjoy… but… my greatest love is the '68 - '70 AMXs. I prefer the 390 and 4 spd but any combo is good.
Narrowing it down to the finest level… I'll go with a '68 390 4 spd. 1st colour choice would be green with silver stripes and tan interior. Oh wait… I've just described my car!
Man-o-man… I love my AMX!!!
