Awesome. Dig them wheel covers. Get thee to Bonneville, post haste.

A real patina sleeper. Would be nice to see it on the street. Great to see AMC muscle!

Yep. This thing is really cool. Wonder how long it has been since it was running?

What do you mean by "go package"?

Keep it the way it is....but ditch the moons, throw some crusty slotmags on it.

Slot mags would look better, yes, but these look pretty darn good! Definitely a unique look. Great color combo; the orange and black looks cool. Cool rake, too, and awesome profile. Love how the flying-buttress-things go all the way to the rear.

man, can you imagine if you tried to drive this thing without washing it? look at the algae covering those windows! have we documented a car with windows more obscured than this? what a funny thing to think about.

i also like that glimpse of the garage roof in shot #2. i picture mr. burns in a mad scientist lab coat, caressing the moss as it blooms across his car and house, saying "excellent..."

and those headlights! yes, please!

This is a true piece of muscle car history! Wow.. what a find! After a bath... this car would turn heads as is. I do prefer the 390 over the 360 though, but no big deal. I hope the owner restores her.

(SST "Go Package" - "The interior for 1970 was also a one-year design featuring a broad dashboard (wood grained on SST models), new center console, revised interior door panel trim, and tall "clamshell" bucket seats with integral headrests available in vinyl, corduroy, or optional leather upholstery.")

I had one of these when I was teenager, it had white halo top instead of black. What a head turner!

Hmm, looks like somebody had big plans for this car at some time.
