AMERICAN MOTORS AMX

2-seater coupé.

Sexy, chunky, short-wheelbase version of Javelin (above), with only two seats in closed shell. Same basic chassis, tighter handling, long nose/short back style. US problem was that Yanks didn't buy two-seater cars, and with higher-than-Javelin prices (for fewer seats), AMX died away. Name only lived on in Javelin from 1971.
