1969- CUSTOM AMX
The iconic Custom AMX, a true gem from the U.S. plant with a production span of about three glorious years! 🇺🇸 Mattel took inspiration from the sleek 1968 AMC AMX for this masterpiece, giving it clear windows, an accessible hood, and an interior exclusively dressed in white. The medium wheels adorned both front and rear axles, and due to its immense popularity, this beauty graced us in an array of vibrant colors.
But wait, there's more! 🇬🇧 The elusive "Ed Shaver" AMX was crafted exclusively for the UK market. Whether loose or packaged, this rarity can only be found in Ed's signature blue, matching his real-world ride. 🏁 It made its way into the hands of lucky collectors through various promotions and Ed Shaver's special appearances. This limited edition beauty was even featured on the 1970 U.K. Racing Car Series blister packs, complete with an Ed Shaver decal sheet.
So, what sets it apart from the regular blue AMX? Here's the scoop: The Ed Shaver version is all about those stickers! Over 90% of this car's value lies in those coveted decals. A loose Ed Shaver AMX with pristine, perfectly placed stickers is a true rarity, fetching a premium price.
