My First Car
1969 AMX 290 V8 Hurst 4-speed, Beale Street Blue with charcoal gray interior. Bought this car new in January 1969. My first car and I never sold it, but it sat in the garage for 20+ years. Undergoing complete restoration with many upgrades. Painted a dark blue instead of original color. Upgraded brake system, original 290 V8 completely rebuilt, already had an Edelbrock Hi Rise manifold I installed decades ago. I decided to go with the Holley Sniper EFI (never liked the original Carter AFB) with in-tank fuel pump and return line, Hooker Headers. Numerous other upgrades such as A/C.
