I kind of had this 1969 AMX fall into my lap. Originally thought I'd sell it, but after some investigation found the 2 seater was only 2900lbs from the factory. The more I looked at the car the more I thought it needed something. So it is going full frame, slightly stretching the wheelbase 7", running 335's on the front and rear, really should be experimental.

Already started stripping the car out, and building the chassis. I'm running a modified Jakes Rod Shop front clip, Strange F body Dana 60 set up for a torque arm, and watts link. It will be LS powered with a T56. Was going to run 315's on 11" wheels on the front, but figured why not put 335's on 12" wheels so I can rotate them(experimental).

Hurried to get these mounts made up before the Ravens game, I think I'll make some kind of gusset to attach the engine stands to the lower control arm mount.Good thing I have a few busted LS blocks for mock up. If this car was a little fancier, I'd have used the LS7 block
