Barn Find Project AMX Update

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.

Next and final step is to finish covering the factory seats and get them installed and then add the wheels.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. 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 especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) 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. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.

  1. I had a friend in Memphis that had a black 70 AMX with a tricked out 401 and 4 speed that was a bad car. Once he got a girlfriend my ride a longs ended…you know no back seat. These were street rippers in their day. good to see someone restoring the I love it.

  2. THE AMX WAS RICHARD TEAGUE’S BABY I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL IN MICHAGAN WITH HIS SON RICK AND WE DROVE ALL THE NEW AMX CARS AND JAVLEN,S BEFORE THEY WHERE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC ALSO WE GOT OR 16 YEAR OLD HANDS ON THESE AND OTHERES ON THE BOARD THE AMX 2 AND SINCE HIS DAD WAS IN CHARGE OF DESIGN WE GOT TO DRIVE VARIOUS OTHER HOT CARS

  3. Please let the world know how she runs. I followed the restoration and am dying to know how she drives.

  4. Actually, the car was completed several years ago. We had the normal teething issues with a new build but once all the bugs were worked out she was a lot of fun to drive. However, it soon came time for a new project and she had to go. The AMX went off to Florida and we started the restoration of the 1969 Nuremberg Dodge Daytona. Now that car is done and we are enjoying it!
