This just came up for sale locally. It's an AMC Spirit SX/4. Basically a Gremlin/Hornet chassis with a Jeep AWD system and a lightweight Spirit AMX hatchback body. It's also a stupid-rare stick shift.

Did I mention my 401 would literally "bolt-in"? Seriously, can you imagine a 401ci V8, 5-Speed manual, AWD hatchback that weighs about 2600Lbs and has 500+ FtLbs?

Rallycross?

I want it sooooo badly! Except my contracted job ended on 4/30 with no extension so now I'm close to incomeless

I wonder if he'll take trades...

Looks like a deal to me, forget rallycross, throw in a rollcage and take it to a rally.

Can you safely run that 4wd system on a front wheel tow dolly?

It's a stick, so I assume so?

Between all of the AMCs, the hornet and wagon, I like the monster SX/4 idea best.

Nah, conflict is gone I sold the Concord wagon at a substantial profit in 10 days (enough to buy tickets to NYC and DC) and the Hornet is nearly totally stripped, also at a nice profit. Engine gets picked up the 22nd and it goes to the crusher sometime soon after that. She likes AMC's pretty well now!

If it does have an 8 track, its manditory to play Lynard Skynard when rally crossing

you're looking at it the wrong way, income isn't always the money you earn, sometimes it's the cars you have in your possession

What Raze means is, "Out goes contract work, in comes another AMC...."
