6:12 – What the hell are they doing here?

It’s sock it to me time.

“Hey, let’s see how it does in our off-roading test” 6:12

425 ft lb torque 0-60 in 6.3 sec. That’s impressive for 1969

“docile enough for your favorite girl to take on shopping trips”
Like, the favorite one of several groupie girlfriends a real man has, according to 1969 standards xD

I pounded out a “one way ticket to jolly land” this morning.

the V8 engines from amc were really tough
they used one block for the 20 up to the 401.
realizing that in 1965 that would probably the last time they had the money to engineer a brand new engine
i think the sixes were from 1965 too

Has always been one of my favorite cars! Thanks for sharing!

Could anyone every pack more cliques and buzzwords into a presentation than Bud Lindemann?

BTW, this thing had MUCH better braking than Bud’s own test of a slightly newer Mustang Shelby KR!!

Bud: “It’s docile enough for your favorite girl to take on shopping trips.” Man…the sexism was THICK back in those days around cars.

‘Run through the cones’ is exactly right!

The gas cap looks like a giant tumor!
This 6.4L engine only makes 100HP less then my 2.0L Engine in my car

The 1968-69 AMX and Javelin are the best looking AMCs I’ve ever seen. It’s too bad they changed after 1970.

I’ve never seen a 69 with the gas cap there. My car had it behind the rear license plate. Ah… it was a teague prototype. ok

Joe Blo
That AMX looks to handle better than any Chrysler from back then…impressed.
