The AMX 3 is back! It's back at the SD Auto Museum
It's been gone for a couple of years now... get in to see it while it's there. If you're uncertain what an AMX-3 is, it was a prototype that wound up to be more expensive than the Corvette, so AMC scrapped the idea. The engine was a 390 mid engine mount, the design was from Dick Teague, and they made about 6 or so in Turin Italy with Bizzarini, scrapped a couple after shutting down the project, but Dick kept 2, and one was buried in a private garage and never seen again.
