Yep they are the old skool Torque thrusts, They were on it the day he drove off the lot.
Not sure if they had via AMC or dealership or if had bought them else where and had them installed at the dealership, But the wheels were on it when it rolled out of the parking lot Wink seen many photos the lil'square pics with the round corners ? Kinda yellowish tint lol gotta love vintage technology Smiley !
 
A house fire at parents ruined most of that stuff . . . Still trying to find some vintage shots of it tho

Mike, it doesn't look so bad in pictures. Where is the rust you have concern about?

The sub-frame rails, From the idler arm forward on the passanger front, and the rear driver side rail just before the arch. Those are the spots of concern.  
 
Rust not of concern, Front and rear floor pans, inner rocker panels, the floor section between the small triangle windows, lower radiator support, and passanger wheel well arch.
 
I think that's all of it Grin

Think about a 5 or 6 speed manual. I am wanting a nice deep 35-50% over drive... So .50-.65 OD..  
 
I got 4.44s out back, though I would love to find a set of 3.91s or an AMC 20 rear with 3.91s I can swap under my AMX.
