1970 AMC AMX Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The AMX (American Motors Xperimental) was designed by AMC's VP of Styling, the legendary Dick Teague, to compete with the popular Chevrolet Corvette.. The AMX and the Javelin were American Motors Corporation's entries in the 'pony car' market. It appeared in production as a 2-seater version of the Javelin ponycar in 1968. The AMX continued as a 2-seater through 1970 but fewer than 20,000 were built. From 1971-1974, the second-generation Javelin was complemented by a Javelin AMX that had four seats and a performance-oriented engine. The AMX was not only sporty and attractive, but it introduced many 'industry firsts', including the one-piece injection molded dashboard which greatly improved safety for its occupants. The AMC AMX was popular on the racing circuit, especially at drag strips. The potent engines and wide tires made them very competitive. The AMX captured the Super Stock Championship title multiple years. Craig Breedlove, a renowned driver broke over 100 records including the 24 hour average speed record which he averaged 130 mph.
