=============================================================================================

1973 AMC AMX Pierre Cardin, ***THIS WAS ORIGINAL LISTING**** 360 4barrel, Hurst 4speed, factory air condition, power steering, power brakes, heated rear window, twin grip 3:54 rear end, group 15 multiplex door speakers, tinted glass, Rally Pack, Go Pack, functional cowl induction hood, needs total restoration but complete. Has holes in roof, and lower 1/4s, cowl hood has rust near one hinge. Rockers appear fine. Trunk has rust. The roof appears to be biggest issue and would have to be fiberglassed or replaced...or you can REBODY the car. No title, bill of sale, get a title from Broadway Title Service or a Bonded Title in your state. Interesing history.  Only 4152 Pierre Cardin Javelins made between 1972-74 with most being Javelin Series...NOT AMX. There are (my estimate) less than 200 known to exist, and less than SIXTY documented known to exist. Few are "P" coded 360 4 barrel cars and only a HANDFUL are Hurst equipped making this a rare one indeed. To learn more about the Pierre Cardin designer series from AMC check out the
Pierre Cardin AMC Registry

73 AMX Pierre Cardin parts car, $1500. What you get: last year powerful 360V8 without bridged rockers, flywheel, Hurst shifter, Borg Warner T-10, in other words, whole drivetrain including linkages, z bar, shifter pedals, great for conversion. Carburetor to pan. Twin grip. (which is stuck, but a 3:54 desirable gear), doors, glass, guts in doors, 1/4 glass, what is left of stainless trims, Pierre Cardin seats, headliner, some of that stuff still good, factory air conditioning system for conversion including all cables, Weathereye, York Tecumseh compressor, brace, steering column, power steering frame box on unibody, single piston desirabler Kelsey Hayes whole brake system, calipers, rotors, booster, backing plate, most of this stuff should still be good for conversion for crappy 68-71 4 piston conversion. Bill of sale. **IMPORTANT, since rear stuck you will need flatbed and winch to pull it. There is a LOT of shit still on this car, good stuff, use and sell the rest.

1974 AMC Javelin, 304, AT, 98K, Power steering, power brakes, air condition, originally Sienna Orange with Black vinyl roof, tint glass, bumper guards, nicely optioned out, has moonroof & dual exhausts. The 304 sounds and runs strong, good 904 light duty Torqueflite transmission, good single piston Kelsey Hayes brakes. Needs restoration including lower 1/4s behind wheel wells, paint, minor rust here and there, speedometer cable, windshield has crack, but those easily found for 68-74 AMX & Javelin, general things, easy restoration on rare color combination. Bill of sale, no title, title was Texas title but lost. A great starter car that runs & stops and needs mostly cosmetics. It's a quick booger with that 304/904 setup.

Update on the 74 Javelin. The carburetor is sticky from non driving. So I have disconnected the fuel line to the fuel pump, and run a can of gas into it. And sometimes it will run fine, other times the carb, which appears to be original, is going out quickly.  But car runs if you pour gas in carb. This car does not smoke.

$500 haul remainder off.
What you get: was a good running 304 4 barrel until the new $350 carburetor got all gummied up from sitting. Great looking lower and upper radiator support (worth what I am asking for whole car) Has good tail light panel also. Desirable rebuilt single piston Kelsey Hayes brakes including rotors, booster, calipers, backing plates, so whole conversion for someone wanting to change out from crappy 67-71 Bendix 4 piston type brakes. Good roof, good 904 light duty Torqueflite transmission with flexplate, V8 crossmember, trans crossmember. So lots of good salvagable parts.

1974 AMC AMX, 304 2barrel, 3speed floor shift, power steering, non rally package, cowl induction hood. Late build & is a 1975 color of Ivory Green. 15 inch rims. Engine turns freely, rare clear glass. Date coded CLEAR WINDSHIELD, date coded radiator. Primered & has some shit bodywork on driver 1/4 panel from previous owner. According to the 1974 AMC Registry, he has never seen one this 1975 color. Me neither & I have documented thousands of cars at meets. If you google LAST AMX BUILT a file comes up here off my site. Ex military base vehicle. Has incorrect bucket seats, rear seat and beautiful upper dash pad. I do not have grille or either bumpers, but 73-74 Javelin grille shown goes with car. Clear title. This AMX is what I believe a "empty parts bin car" that is, AMC was known to build cars & send to dealers using up as much parts in the parts bins for a DISCONTINUED model, in this case 1974 was last year for Ambassador, Javelin & AMX. The car was washed for photos, and yes, this is the infamous Christmas AMX many of you saw on you tube & television. $2500/obo

This is the only known 1974 AMX to exist in this color of J7 Ivory Green.

1982 AMC Eagle wagon, 258-6, Automatic, power steering, air condition, am/fm radio, power brakes, upper engine rebuilt 140,000 miles, currently has 210,000 miles. I have taken this car off the road, literally, as front end is weak and needs rebuild. Can't drive above 35mph or wobbles. Car was bought from original owner in 1994 & been my Planet Houston Swap Meet Tow Car towing dozens of cars thru years with Class 3 hitch & all over Texas, Oklahoma to swap meets with trailer. Cranks right up, starts easily. Has cracked windshield, wobbly front end, minor rust near 1/4 glass, needs carpet, headliner. But dependable as hell with many years left on it. Would be a nice car if someone willing to do front end, and minor restoration on it. The 5th photo below it's shown pulling 69 big bad orange Javelin late June 2014. Will post more photos time permitting. $975

1988 AMC Eagle wagon, 258-6, loaded, automatic, power steering, power brakes, air condition, heated rear window, rear wiper, am/fm radio, tilt wheel, one of only 2306 last year Eagles shoved out the door by Chrysler after they bought AMC in 1987, often call the 'continuation cars' as they emptied parts bins on remaining Eagles. Sold new in Texas, this car is driven daily. Good is that it is dependable as hell. Has 107,000 miles. Lots of new items including $275 carburetor, solenoid, battery, starter relays, to name a few. Bad is front end squeaks & has cracked windshield. The windshield interchanges with 70-88 Gremlin/Hornet/Concord/Spirit/Eagle & can be found under $150. Driver side seat has tear & as with most Eagles, headliner cloth gone. The core there, just crappy cloth AMC used Eagles & Concord used to fall off. I just did 300 mile trip in this car June 2014. Wife drives it daily also. Could use paint as the paint is dull. Will post more photos time permitting. $2000
