Rare car restored to pristine condition!

Real "The Machine", as indicated by the vin #. Factory ram air 390 and factory 4-speed. Restored to pristine condition cosmetically and mechanically. Really, this car is in exceptional condition. That is why I bought it.
"The Machine" was a 1 year only, limited production muscle car. AMC used it to lure buyers away from the big 3 and into their showrooms. AMC introduced the car by driving 10 of them from the factory in Wisconsin to compete in Texas at the World Championship Drag Racing finals. They raced in the condition they arrived in! Motor Trend considered The Machine to be among the greatest cars of all time. Only 2,326 were built total, ever.

EXTERIOR: The color is fantastic, gorgeous. The burgundy metallic looks like a piece of candy. The body is incredibly straight and the body panels were precision fitted. The paint is polished like glass. Jambs are painted slick. New sill plates and weatherstrips. Has the correct satin black hood patch with silver outline. Also has the factory ram air scoop with built in tachometer, all in mint shape. Rare original Kelsey Hayes rally wheels. Rides on radial redline tires. Front bumper is show chromed, the grill is restored. Any stainless trim has been straightened and polished. Windshield is crystal clear. The vinyl top is new. In back the bumper is show chrome. Everything's nice- lenses, tail light bezels, mirror etc.

INTERIOR: Restored very nicely. I'm looking at the instrument panel and it's excellent. Dash pad is new. There's a Custom Autosound secret stereo hidden in the glove box with a remote. There's also the glove box pouch with the manuals. Seats have been reupholstered with correct comfort weave upholstery. Seat backs are mint. New carpet, has original AMC rubber mats. Door panels, armrest, headliner are all in excellent condition.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: 390-340 hp, the most powerful motor AMC put in a production car. Original motor to this car according to the #s on the tag. Motor was rebuilt and runs strong. Wow, that's what I said when I opened the hood. It is detailed to show quality. The engine bay and bottom of the hood is painted just like the exterior. Every component looks like new- fuel pump, alternator, power brake unit, radiator, shroud, pulleys, brackets, etc. Wiper motor is cadmium plated. Motor has a very clean coat of the correct Aqua paint. It has been upgraded with a dual feed Holley carb. Has correct Ram Air assembly, even the flapper door on the hood.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Also detailed like new. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb is painted just as beautiful as the exterior. The trunk light works. Has new weatherstrip and jacking instructions decal. Inside the trunk compartment is perfectly clean metal. Clean gray spatter finish that was sprayed from a gun. Has a new mat. The collapsible spare and original jack assembly is all mounted correctly.

UNDERSIDE: It looks new under this car. The metal is so smooth and clean. The floors and frame rails were prepped and painted a semi gloss black. The front suspension and steering is completely rebuilt and detailed. Bottom of the motor and the trans are clean. Has T-10 Borg Warner 4 speed trans with Hurst linkage. Rear suspension is rebuilt and detailed. Has sway bars front and back. Restored brake system, disc in front. Has great sounding exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers.

Rare, unique muscle car in fantastic condition. Everyone loves the color. Sounds just right. New owner will be proud!
