Partially restored 1971 AMC Hornet SC/360 for sale on Hemmings.com. From the seller’s description:
I inherited this 1971 AMC SC/360 when my brother passed away Dec of last year. It was going to be a winter project for him and as he was securing many parts for the restoration. I would have liked to finish this project , but at my age I do not need another project. Therefore, I am selling this SC/360 and all the parts that he had accumulated. He started the restoration by rebuilding the front suspension and all front disc brake system (see photos)
Some of the facts that he wrote down are that AMC only made 784 total SC/360’s and only 306 were equipped with 4 barrel, and 4 speed.
This was called the “GO PACK” and included 4 barrel, Ram Air, Dual Exhaust,Tach (it works) Handling Package, and White Letter Tires.
This car has the following factory equipment:
Twin Grip 3.91 rear gears
Heavy Duty Cooling Package
Power Front Disc Brakes
Front & Rear Bumper Guards
Luggage Rack and Body Side Mouldings
Rim Blow Steering Wheel, Electric Wipers, and Low Fuel Warning Light
Headlight Warning Buzzer
Here are some things that have been done to this SC/360 already—-The OEM Hurst shifter was professionally restored, the original rim-blow steering wheel was professioanlly restored, and the OEM Autolite 4 barrel carb was professionally restored.
Some of the new and NOS parts included are engine compartment wiring harness, new rear lighting wiring harness, NOS speedometer, two NOS taillight lenses, two new headlight surrounds,three NOS stainless wheelwell trim, Waldron complete Mandrel bent Stainless exhaust with mufflers ($1000.00). OEM AM radio converted to AM-FM, Front and rear rechromed bumpers, NOS Hornet Gas Cap, NOS Driver Side Remote Chrome Mirror, NOS Pass side Chrome Mirror, Two NOS Hornet Name emblems, Two NOS Parking light lenses with chrome tri-bars, Two NOS ourside door handle assemblies, two NOS Hornet “bugs” Front Fender Emblems. Two new weatherstrips
There are a lot of other parts pictured that I did not list ( just too much stuff).
There is some rust on the drivers side behind the rear wheel, but the pass side looks good (see photos). But you do get two NOS rear quarter panels. You also get 3 other front fenders (used) and a used trunk lid ( the trunk lid on the car has the holes init for the luggage rack the rack is included ). Included is a set of Cal-Trac Traction Bar set up with instructions, a lot of extrat stainless trim parts. 3 hood hinges,
I have many of ther receipts for the parts that he purchased.
The undercarrigae photos show that the floor pans and rockers panels are great condition. One of the last things that my brother did to this SC/360 was to spray Eastwoods “Undergone” undercoating remover (he purchased 6 cans 5 are left and go with the car) on part of the floor pan and uniframe. you can see in the photos that it makes the undercoating soft and it just wipes off.
