the 1978 Hornet AMX had an optional hood decal

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 by admin

Optional for the Hornet AMX was a large hood decal that was right around the time of Smokey and the Bandit, so perhaps AMC was trying to benefit from the halo effect, or maybe Mr. Wangers was applying the same ideas to both cars (he advised on the modifications for the Trans Am used in the movie).

AMC approached Jim Wangers of Motortown Corporation to create a more exciting version of the Hornet.

Motortown specialized in creating limited-run specialty editions of production cars that the large manufacturers couldn’t do profitably in-house, and was responsible for such cars as the Pontiac GTO Judge.

An appearance package was developed along with some suspension tuning, but unfortunately, the EPA certification requirements triggered by drivetrain upgrades prevented the possibility of a larger engine such as the 360, which would have been a drop-in replacement.

So the Hornet AMX debuted with either a 110 hp 258 c.i.d (4.2-liter) straight-six coupled with either a four-speed manual or an automatic with floor shift, or the 150 hp 304 c.i.d (5.0-liter) V8 with a Chrysler-sourced automatic.
