There is no doubt that the American Motors cars from 1968 until 1975 were some of the most sporty and attractive cars of the period. Even the oddly-shaped Matador coupe had a solid following during that time. Yet the AMC/AMX cars were under-appreciated from a collector/investor standpoint until 2006 when they became one of the most sought-after muscle cars of the era.
With demand so high, it is surprising the aftermarket offers few replacement and restoration parts for these cars. Eddie Motorsports has become well known for making show quality components that elevate the look of any vehicle. So it is not shocking they are offering a new line of precision billet aluminum hood hinges for the highly popular 1968-74 AMC/AMX/Javelin cars.
Hemmings Muscle Machines magazine has said the two-seater AMX had “a strong following among old car hobbyists and collectors of historic vehicles and nearly every one of the 19,134 built … remains in circulation and in demand, ensuring a good future for the first-generation AMX as a collectible muscle car.” Now there is a company supplying top-shelf parts to restomod these cars.
