OVERVIEW

1973 AMC Hornet

  • DESCRIPTIONThis is my daily driver. I am the 3rd owner; bought it in May of 2009. The unique white over copper tan 2-tone paint is original, with lots of touch-up spots from 37 years of regular use. It's a west-coast car; sold new in Walla-Walla, WA to the first owner. The second owner lived in Portland, OR. It now resides in Temecula, CA. This is NOT my ideal car, but I can't afford the AMX I would rather have, so this will do. I had a '74 just like it when I was 20 years old, but lost it to rust on the east coast. It's not a muscle car by any stretch of the imagination, but it's fun to drive and gets a lot of looks and comments. The interior is all original except for the after-market radio that a previous owner installed. I just had the original inline-6 258 engine rebuilt and it runs like new. Tires and wheels are not stock: AMR polished aluminum wheels and BF Goodrich Radial T/As; 14x7 on the front and 15x8 on the rear.
