As far as i could research, you might know this. you have a 1973 amx. the p letter denotes the 360 engine with a 4 barrel carburetor!

Here's what I've come up with...
A-AMC (make)
3-1973 (year)
C-3spd/auto/floor (tranny)
7-Javelin (car series)
9-2 dr. hardtop (body series)
7-"Javelin" (body class)
P-360 4v (engine)

This looks like a plain Javelin from the vin. If that second 7 had been an 8 it would mean AMX.
