Green Hornet: 1974 AMC Hornet Sportabout

Filed Under (AMC) by Station Wagon Finder on 02-16-2012

This 1974 AMC Hornet Sportabout station wagon found on Ebay is an 81,940 mile original California car that has a faded paint patina that can only be found in a dry climate. Purchased from the original owners son, the car was trucked to Idaho where it currently resides. Upon arriving in Idaho the seller repaired a dent above the rear taillight and had the area painted to match the patina. NOS hatch hinges were replaced to fix a misalignment caused by the dent and a rear door handle was also replaced.

Following the body repair, the car was gone through mechanically where a small radiator leak was repaired. The points, plugs, wires, air filter, carburetor, heater hose, oil, filter and gas lines were replaced.  The brakes were also gone through and fixed as needed. The result is a car that runs, drives and stops as it should and also gets 26 mpg!
