As usual we have slipped a little on the timeline for the AMX but better to take your time and do it right than do it over again, Right? The car is 95% back together. The radio was rebuilt by Ward’s Classic Car Radio so the AM works great, the 8Track is nostalgic and the IPod MP3 plug in makes for great variety and modern high tech. We will certainly be doing this on future projects as needed. We also have the factory air conditioning working and can’t wait to hit the road this summer with cool breezes blowing regardless of the temperature. I haven’t been able to do that for a long time.
We are still not sure what wheel combination we will settle on. This is one of the first things you should do. We did but then we changed out mind so it will be the last thing instead.
Here are some current photos of the little red Barn Find AMX Project Car getting a color sand and buff.
About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. The time there was very rewarding but the urge for a slower pace moved us to Tennessee a few years ago and we love it. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle. As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. When they don't we are usually out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
