April 04, 2010 The story goes...the 1970 AMX you see here was originally owned by Greg White, of Parkridge NJ. who was friends with Ken Rose of Lakeview Rambler, the Westwood NJ AMC dealership. Ken campaigned the very first SS/AMX car manufactured "American Image", serial number ONE! Circa 1972, the drivetrain from the "Americn Image" car was removed and re-installed into the car you see here. The car was then street raced by Greg until being purchased by the current owners brother Bill Mckenzie in 1975. The car has been in the family since and is currently owned by Bill's brother Glen Mckenzie of Highland Mills, NY. At this time Glen is rebuilding the transplanted drivetrain and building a replica SS/AMX cross ram 390 motor to reinstall back into the car.

Interesting, I have a picture of the American Image on my garage wall, it is a SC/Rambler, owned by them. By the way it looks Darn COOL! SH

My friend owns the American Image SS/AMX. He is finishing up a '70 V8 Hornet resto/hotrod project so I was actually over there last week to help him move the Hornet out to drop in the engine and do some rearranging in his shop.  
 
We moved the super stock car out of storage and pushed it into his work area to begin the restoration. He's got just about everything to restore it (Crane heads, Crossram etc..) with the exception of the carbs and metal air cleaner.
 
The car has all kinds of evidence of it's race history as you would expect, and under the orange paint there's traces of the previous red white and blue paint job peeking through. Quite a piece of AMC history  Wink

Made more progress on the A recently. The body and interior are almost completely back together now. Currently amassing the engine parts combo that will begin it's migration down south to BA's shop in West Virginia very soon. It'll be plug and play when it comes home!
