1973 AMC AMX.factory Z Code Go Pac Car. It has been sitting un-driven and stored in climate controlled environment for last 41 years.
Previous owner had rattle canned the compartment black and a quart of original color correct PPG paint comes with car. Paint was redone in early 80’s painted correct Tallyho Green due to faded paint. Never rusted or body repaired.
So lots of questions on engine color. !973 had two colors for engine.
My intent was cruising and minimal use restored vehicle, not racing or doing full block burnouts. The engine was reassembled with assembly lube and new gaskets and painted. Whoever buys it can choose to tear it down but this engine did not need to be machined.
