A non typical antique car.
Valve cover gasket leaked as expected, so I replaced it.
Front control arm bushings were replaced twice.
Rear springs sagged, so I put in air shocks.
Gear shifter would not go into 1st gear which was fixed after I bought it.
Still has a ticking when idling, I'll dump some Lucas oil treatment in it and see what happens.
It is a fun mid sized car that gets all kinds of looks when I cruise around. I have all kinds of room in the back. I was looking for an old car to fix up and have found out that AMC's are getting more and more popular. I only drive it in the summer so it won't rust out like thousands of other daily driven ones had. Unfortunately was hit by a Subaru last year. They don't build them like the used to. A great reliable summer driven daily driver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
