It was our intent to build the car to match or exceed the car we would have ordered from the AMC dealer in 1969. If it had not been for a draft notice we would have owned a new one back then!
However, as most car projects go, once it was completed, and we did love it deeply, a new girl caught our eye. It is a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Unfortunately, we had to sell the AMX and some other toys to pay for the restoration of the Daytona. Prior to the departure of the AMX for its new home in Florida we were able to put together a Part 2 video of our overall impressions of the completed car.
In a few word we found the car to be a delight and it was everything we had planned on. We started with a rust free car with all the right factory options. We built it with the primary purpose of being a car to hit the streets with and have fun. We had much less concern about how it might do on the show field. We also were concerned about cost but not at the expense of quality. The result was a beautiful car that is seldom seen on the street or at a show; a car that is comfortable and fun to drive and one that is expected by many experts to have a significant increase in value over the next 5 years.
Check out this video and see what we have to say about this little red bomb.
In the near future we will also be bringing you are driving impressions of our most recent Project Car to be completed, the 1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 CJ with factory air. Unfortunately, this Project Car will also have to be sold to help support the Daytona, Click Here.
