Hi  Australian AMC'er   It has taken me one and a half years to get on the forum to chat to you people about this car. I,m just starting to put the paint on the car { in the next week or so}, I would like your input as to your thoughts on if my thinking is on the button . The paint will be the mad max colour as this car is known for , I thought long and hard and thought in stead of the true white that it was in the beging it  made more scents to do it MAD MAX. I do have all the original parts for this car,motor, trans, exc.  I also have #2 of 24 amx,s which I will keep original

Yes, welcome to the forum. We had a discussion on here back when you brought the car. Did you end up finding any evidence on the body for the link to Mad Max? I think it would be cool to do one in the Mad Max colour scheme, especially since you have a couple to play with, they can't all be boring restorations.

Thanks 74gremx and WesternRed.          No I did not find any holes or anything to say it is but did find Havana gold paint on the front engine hold down and hood hinges.The guy I bought the car from had done a lot of body work and put a lot thick brown paint on the under side in thick black enamel paint ,all and all it is what saved the car from rust . Had to cut out some old panel repare and get good straight steel backin .The guy I got to panel and paint is probably the best around these parts ,he has painted two other cars for me ( 68 AMX and 68 JAV ) and both are unreal so I feel pretty lucky to have him

Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to seeing some photo's.
I have been emailing with Luke and James at the Australian Muscle Car magazine who said they either had a chat with you or would like too. Did they contact you at all? As I think they want to do some more on the Aussie AMX's in the magazine. Shame you aren't closer so you could bring them to the 2nd annual Australian AMC/Rambler show this year in Albury and show them off.
 Looking forward to updates Smile

Thanks 70 Hornet.      Yes the Australian muscle car magazine guys I have been in touch with , but haven't heard much back sense . They said that they would get back later as I gave them as much info on the two Aussie AMX s that I have so we will see what come,s of it. Soon I will be able to get some picture to you guys, I got yellow on the car on New Years eve and should have the red and blue on in a week or so fingers crossed . When I,am able I will get the pics to all of uses
Thanks again

As of today have all the colours on and have put 6 coats of clear on the main body and just have the doors and fenders to finish , this painter guy is just unreal ,he wants to make sure things are just so and it shows. I hope you Australians will approve of the colour scheme, I'm torn as to what motor to put in it at this point !

I have a blown 390 a tricked up 390 with cross ram intake, stock 390 and the stock 343 that is the original one out of car, it still needs rebuilding . I have a couple of steel hoods and a couple of fiberglass hoods as well . If I have to cut a bounet it will be the glass one , so we will paint one glass one and one steel one and have the options open.
