FANTASTIC DRIVING HORNET, SUPER STRAIGHT, SLICK PAINT, BUILT 304 V8, PS, PB, A/C
It's time to attract all the right attention with this 1973 AMC Hornet X. The refreshed factory colors, enhanced AMC V8, A/C interior, and much more come together to make an attractive and distinctive classic for a value price.
If you want a Hornet, 1973 is the exact right year. The sheetmeal was given a curvy restyle to be more like the Javelin, and it was the time before federal regulations altered the bumper design. And the new hatchback style was able to really make the most of these curves. But more than just the right year, you're going to love this Hornet for its stellar presentation. The two-tone Maxi Blue with Snow White roof is the factory-correct color scheme. But you know they never could get it to look this good in '73. Instead, the outstanding shine you see is the product an investment in a professional application of modern paints. And they got the details, right, too. The red and white pinstripes hug the Coke bottle curves; the waterfall grille is complete; and the bright 14-inch wheels even have American Motors tagging in the center cap.
Inside is an attractive black interior that has been given a good balance between originality and proper updating. For example, the factory AM/FM stereo is still in the dash, but the real tunes come from a modern AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input that's hidden in the glove box. The black leather seats are in great condition, and the same can be said for the door panels, carpeting, and headliner. You slip behind a sporty three-spoke factory steering wheel, and gaze at a full gauge panel. The speedometer is original, but the large tach and aux readouts have been updated to make sure you have the best accuracy. And just to make sure you stay as cool as you look in this AMC, the factory A/C is still pumping out the cold air from the factory vents.
AMC's 304 cubic-inch V8 is always was great to see in the Hornet, especially with the bright air grabber and valve covers. It could move these compacts around with authority, and this one does it even better than the factory. The V8 has been enhanced with a Comp Cams kit, Edelbrock 600 four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, and high flow exhaust manifolds. This gives the Hornet X an even greater sting on the road and a true presence with the rumble of the dual exhaust. But there's much more to this classic. It has been given the right investments to be a reliable runner, including new upper and lower ball joints. Add in the limited-slip rear end, three-speed automatic transmission, and power steering, and you'll love cruising this AMC everywhere.
Complete with owner's manual, you know what kind of treat it is to show up in a well-sorted AMC. After all, Kenosha built far less than the Detroit boys, and so when this rarity is at such an affordable price, this gem won't be with us long. Call today!!!
