We think every builder and mechanic working on AMC’s line of vehicles could benefit from the company’s series of service manuals. The 1969 AMC Factory Shop Manual (AMX, Javelin, Rebel, Rambler, Ambassador) is no exception. You’re going to find a treasure-trove of information on brakes, steering, suspensions, transmission, clutch, tires, engine, electrical and exhaust systems with step-by-step instructions.
Throughout the 1950s and the next several decades, American Motors established itself as a major auto engineer. It began in 1957 with the Ambassador V8 and an almost unbelievable (by today’s standards) 117 inch wheelbase. In 1969, American Motors highlighted its talents with the beautifully detailed AMX, which none other than Popular Mechanics called “an absolute delight to drive,” the Hornet, the company’s signature line for almost two decades, and the aforementioned Ambassador, which lived through seven generations.
All the manufacturer’s manual trannys came with a Hurst floor shifter. And there was what was called a “Big Bad” paint option that cost a massive $34! Some argued, despite these adjustments, AMC was maintaining the status quo. But that was also a sign that the public didn’t need more. If sales were any indicator, we were content with the way things were.
Nothing’s changed. The world’s still drooling over these puppies. Search them on the Internet and you’re going to find many proud owners and just as many that wish they were. These vehicles are going to be treasured for a long time. If you’re working on them, this 1969 American Motors service manual will up your game.
