There was a time when AMC performance was more of an afterthought to the muscle car era. Today, AMC muscle cars are among the fastest appreciating performance vehicles in the market. Low production numbers combined with capable performance as well as cool and unique styling have increased coverage in magazines and at auctions, making these cars more valuable than ever before. Concours-restored AMC muscle cars routinely bring $30,000 to $65,000 in the collector car world, which makes a comprehensive restoration guide a must-have for any American Motors enthusiast. AMC Javelin, AMX and Muscle Car Restoration 1968— 1974 provides in-depth coverage of the decoding and documentation process of an AMC muscle car, primarily the popular Javelin and AMX models. Author and expert AMC restorer Scott Campbell gives you a detailed account of important aspects of restoration including rust repair; panel and sheet-metal replacement; interior and trim restoration; undercarriage chassis, suspension, and driveline rehabilitation; as well as every other major component group. Also included are multiple “how-to” sequences that, regardless of your skill level, will assist you in restoring your AMC muscle car. This restoration guide chronicles the entire process of AMC ownership from selecting a vehicle to disassembly to final re-assembly. You will find coverage of all steps throughout: from turning the first bolt to tumbling the key in the ignition following completion of your restoration.
