Strange Survivor: 1973 AMC Hornet

The asking price might be a smidgen high for this next car..but then how often do you find surviving cars from the early 70s with a stock single barrel carb.  Most of those cars have long since been crushed and the 4bbl equipped versions are placed on pedestals and at the top of the next Barrett-Jackson auto auction. But this thing is the nicest example of a basic AMC Hornet that you'll find...still not sure if it is worth the asking price. Find this 1973 AMC Hornet offered for $9800 in Lake Elsinore, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
