Love the AMC.

About 28 years ago I ran into a guy who had barns of them. Probably 30 to 40 AMX and Javelins.   He lived halfway between Reno NV and Carson City.

IIRC nearly all ran or where being restored.

Haven't talked to him in probably 25 years, but he sure did have a nice bevy of American Motors cars!

Got some teens and twenties cars. Mostly Dodge Brothers but also a '12 Buick and some old tractors.

1974 Dodge Dart with Slant Six. I know people want to put a V8 in these, but the six is so bulletproof, I want to keep it. I have done total rebuild the front end, from bearings to brake drums, and replacements of many other suspension/mechanical items, and even had the front seat re-upholstered using the original vinyl and replacing the old cloth with 'duck cloth' and firming up the seat cushioning itself, and modding the tracks so it will move back 3" more for the taller folks. Have the rest of the parts (ac compressor, some electrical stuff. etc) so it is almost done. Rebuilt the distributor, but put it back in a tooth off, so it won't start and now has sat, so the gas is bad probably. It has been a labor of love though and not far from ready.

I was surprised with two things on this old car: The front anti-sway bar was apparently an option on these and this one did not have it. The holes are there from the factory, but never installed. Wow it was like a wild ride going around corners, but I guess many cars were like that back then. Now it sticks to the road as it should with a new heavy duty one. Also, the power steering - these things steer with one finger, no effort at all. The sweetest thing, no rust.

I have to sell the thing though, sewer line is busted and need to pay for that! What a monstrous expense for three guys dig a 2 FT deep ditch and put PVC pipe in it. It's got to be a racket. Shoulda been a plumber instead of an engineer.
