Owner said it was in a structure fire! What would you do with it other than a rebody job? I wouldn't think the cage would be any good after being heated in a fire.

I have the Parnelli Jones but but have not read it yet. Still reading David Tom's new book. The T/A section is not very big in Parnelli's book.

Here is an AMX on the east coast that is currently under restoration.


From the http://theamcforum.com/forum/1970-amx-scca-b-productiOn_topic42680_page1.html.
In 1975 when I graduated High School I bought a 70 AMX. it was a 390 4 speed a/c car.  None of the people knew how to mod an AMC so i called up AMC located in Elmsford, NY ask asked for some info. I was bounced around and finally got on with a guy named Frank Lipare. Frank was a Senior Management type. He told me the he and a fellow AMC manager scooped the car off the assembly line in 1970 and transformed it into an SCCA car. A lot of the work to the body was done at a boat shop in Long island, the fiberglass front and rear flares. The motor was done by the famous Jocko Maggicomo and Speedwin Automotive , Long island.  the car raced at Bridgehampton and Lime Rock. It was raced until 1974 when it became illegal due to the cubic inch restriction. they decided not to destroke it so it was parked until like 1975 when Frank began to club race it, again on Bridgehapton Long Island and Lime Rock Conn. Frank did hel me with technical infor and parts. I first saw the car at his home in Manhassett, Long Island in 1976 or so. I even went a few times with him to Lime Rock and Bridgehampton to help out on track day.  I bought the car in 1981 and street raced it in NJ almost exactly how it was set up for road racing. Smoked a lot of people. Sold it in 1985 and got it back in 2002 where it has been sitting since.. Frank passed away in 1988 and so did the document history of this car.  I will completely go through it and bring it back to the almost exact condition it was when raced with a few modern upgrades..
 
It has a 390, Venolia 11.5 to 1 pistons, Ported 291 heads, cross ram, Reed roller can T-10 4 speed,4 wheel discs, ATL fuel cell.

Is this what it looked like when it was raced?  Looks cool.

That stripe pattern on the tail lamp panel probably made anyone behind him get dizzy from looking at it!

I wish my car went together that quick. You got more done in two months than I have in 3 years!  I am glad I am not paying the bill from Cobra Auto though. I am trying to as much as I can myself. I just bought a 4' finger brake so the project list has expanded! Can't wait to see your car at Lime Rock.

It was RED and stuck out like a sore thumb. That is my guess anyway.
