AMC was quick to jump on the musclecar-wagon. They dressed up a Rambler American & added their hot little 290 small block V8. This one’s a convertible. But by ’67 GM had moved on to big blocks in their musclecars.
The Javelin was AMC’s foray into the Pony Car Wars. To make the AMX, they shortened the wheelbase and eliminated the back seats, making it a 2-seater. Unfortunately, AMC pushed it as the lowest-priced 2-seat sports car in the US, competing with Corvette. Bad move.
