About “1 wild truck”

i bought this truck seven yrs ago was a drag truck at one time still have the same motor that in it that i run today sometimes it scares me when i have the urge to get on it.

About “the X”

47,000 miles.Total production 4116. One of 122 AMXs painted Big Bad Orange in 70. Second owner, original interior (except carpet)

"This is no Rambler, you guys. It is - to quote a sensitive and eloquent artist friend from the West Coast - "one son-of-a-bitch motorcar!" It's handsome as all get-out. It's fast, stable, safe, and thoroughly enjoyable to drive. It's the first American Motors car in recorded history that every enthusiast can own with pride and drive with pleasure."
