1965 AMC AMX Pushmobile

A few views of the original AMX "pushmobile", part of the Project-IV. Resemblance to the later Javelin-based production model is clear, but show cars don't have to address practical matters such as realistic bumpers. This car was perhaps the best expression of what designer Dick Teague called the "wet T-shirt" look: smooth, tautly drawn, and compelling to the eye.

Detail differences from the later Vignale-built running model include pull-up instead of push button door handles, silver instead of red taillight lenses -- and, of course, no interior. Tunneled backlight and "flying buttress" roof treatment survived in modified form to the 1968 production AMX.
