Here is a table of production numbers put together by Colin Main of the AMCRC of Australia using Data from the register.



YEAR     COMPLIANCE PLATE      AMI BUILD DATES      AMC TAG      BUILT 
 
1970      H09-001 to H09-873       July 70 to Jun 71        GK                    873   
1971      H19-001 to H19-286       July 71 to Dec 71        AK                    286    
1972      H29-287 to H29-519       Mar 72 to Aug 72        AK                    232    
1973      H39-001 to H39-237       Apr 73 to Dec 73         AK                    237   
1974      H59-001 to H59-155       Mar 75 to Jun 75         A4                    155    
Total                                                                                                    1783   


I had a dream the other night that we would find more 1973 Hornets , almost , we have just found H59-155, a 6-75 , so there are at least 155 made , 1975 AMI Hornets, which are based on the USA  1974 Models. Production estimate increased to 1783.

The reproduction of early Hornet tail light lenses is progressing as we speak. These havnt been produced for over 30 years since the mid 80's when AMC US done their last batch of these sought after lenses. Going by the quality of the other AMI items Gary has produced these will be a beaut addition to our broken, missing, scratched , faded and tatty one's we near all have now on our Hornet's and will be popular both here in Australia and the US. Will be good to have a spare on the shelf for a rainy day too

While they are still a few months off Gary can be contacted on 0416645334 or visit www.toyotaheritage.com and pop him an email to secure yourself a set

He is also reproducing the Australian only AMI front guard and rear 1/4 badges soon. Be sure to secure you pair of these sought after items. I have never seen a perfect one on a car nor any NOS one's so looking forward to getting a pair of these

Hi Wayne. Always interesting to hear what you have found in regards to the Australian Hornets and looking forward to catching up with you here at the 5th annual AMC/Rambler show in March. All going well we may have about 10 Hornets in march. From Vic,NSW,QLD and SA including Australia's only SC/360 Smile

Hi All,

Just updating the total production estimate found in the top of this thread to 1778,  as H09-873 a June 1971 , 1970 Hornet was added recently! This increases the 1970 Total from 864 to 873. So 1970 production ran to June 71 with 1971 Model production starting in July 1971.

Retro Auto magazine that is one of the better magazines around these days (this one on-line only) has an article on the Hornet's featuring one of the nicest original Australian assembled Hornets left in Australia. This car will be at next years show again for everyone to have a look at. 

https://www.shannons.com.au/club/news/retroautos-october-2017-exclusive-ford-ltd-prototypes-plus-67-valiant-v870horne/

and click "View Magazine"

David will be doing a few AMC's over the course of the next 18months

If possible leave some comments about the article and Hornets and AMC's in general. The more people that do the more they will see the interest in AMC's. It will only take you a minute to do and Shannons use comments to gauge what they will keep doing or avoid. lets show them AMC's really are an important part of the Australian landscape Smile

Hi All,

Just updating the total production estimate found in the top of this thread to 1769,  as H09-864 a June 1971 , 1970 Hornet was added yesterday! This increase the 1970 Total from 831 to 864. So 1970 production ran to June 71 and 1971 production started in July 1971. Sill looking for a 9-70 Hornet!
There is scope for this figure still to increase if we find 9-72 1972s(US model 1971) or any 1974s(US model 1972s)
