One was a fiberglass two-seat “AMX”, and the other was a four-seat “AMX II”. Both of these radically styled offerings reflected the company’s strategy to shed its “economy car” picture and appeal to a more youthful, performance-oriented market.
The original AMX full-scale models were developed in 1965 by AMC’s advanced styling studios under the direction of Charles Mashigan. The two-seat 1970 AMX was “big hit on the auto show circuit in 1966” and featured a rumble seat that opened out from the rear deck lid for extra passengers called a “Ramble” seat. AMC executives saw the opportunity to change the consumers’ perception of the automaker from Romney’s economy car image, to the realities of the new marketplace interested in sporty, performance oriented vehicles.
