AMX in 1969

 

1969 AMX The Performer

1969 was a year of continued success for the AMX, on the track and in the showroom. The exterior of the car remained the same, the interior was updated with a larger tach, 140 mph speedometer, headrests, slightly different door panels and center console (for automatic cars only), a Hurst shifter on the 4-speeds, a passenger grab handle, and a few other upgrades. New options were added; leather seats could be ordered for the interior and 10 new exterior colors were available. The total production for the 1969 AMX was 8,293 (this included the 52 S/S AMXs). This was the highest single year production of the three years the two-seater was made.

AMX 500 Special

Members of the Southern California Dealers Association teamed up to make the 1969 "500 Special" AMX. Big Bad Green AMX's were used as a promotion in conjunction with the PPG Indy Car series. Go >

Australian AMI AMX

In 1969 Australian Motor Industries Ltd. (AMI) began importing American Motors AMXs into Australia. The 24 AMXs were sent in unassembled form to Australia where they were assembled and converted to right hand drive by AMI. Go >

Big Bad Colors

In the spring, the Big Bad Colors were introduced for the AMX (and Javelin). Big Bad Blue, Big Bad Orange and Big Bad Green. These three bright racy colors were real attention getters. Go >

Pikes Peak Hill Climb

In the summer of 1969 the AMX was the official pace car for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Ten to twelve AMXs, all Frost White with red stripes and red interiors, were used as courtesy cars by select participants of the race. Only one of these cars is known to still exist and is documented as being used by Bobby Unser during the week prior to the race. Go >

S/S AMX

AMC and Hurst teamed up and in the fall of 1969 fifty-two consecutive numbered AMXs were pulled from the Kenosha assembly line. These 390 4-speed cars were then shipped to Hurst facilities in Michigan where they were modified for NHRA Super Stock racing. Go >
