It looks like a front wheel drive Dodge Colt.

Do you realize that Bonnevilles and AMCs were made by completely separate companies

BUT....

AMC DID use GM corporate steering columns in much of their lineup.
AMC DID use the 2.5L 4-banger after 1981, sourced from GM.

and...that'* about it I think.

EDIT - Oh yeah...GM door, trunk, and glovebox locks were used too.

So because they bought stuff from GM, do you think they are part of the same company? I think that'* called a non-sequitur.

I never said or even thought that. I know that AMC was its own entity, and still is (as AM General), and still use GM-sourced components.

Furthermore, this is the lounge, where ANYTHING or ANY VEHICLE can be openly discussed. EKG came here asking a question that as of yet nobody seems to have an answer to.

I still have a soft spot for those old woodgrain steering wheels
pacers look like fishbowls on wheels
and i do tend to agree
ricers would do that if they were around in '76

My point was and remains that a kid looking for information on a riced out unpopular 70s econo-toad from AMC should be able to find more information on an AMC specific forum than on a Pontiac Bonneville specific forum. Or hey, here'* a crazy idea, ask Car Craft. It'* amazing what a 20 second google search can turn up.

But don't be surprised if they don't admit to building it.
Never did I once post that he shouldn't ask his questions here. There'* that non-sequitur thing again.
