In 1969 AMC made little changes to the AMX. The big news came mid year and was the exciting edition of a special series of the "Big Bad AMX". The "Big Bad AMX" option cost just $34 and included much wilder than before colors with body colored bumpers that included Orange, Green and Blue. Also optional and very highly sought was the "Go Package" which included E70 redline tires on six-inch rims, a handling package and power disc brakes. Also available was the limited (only 52-53 built) AMX SS examples sent to Hurst for legalization as drag racing cars. The 390 engine was matched with a pair of 650 cfm Holley four-barrel carburetors on an Edelbrock aluminum cross-ram intake, which offered an advertised output of 340 hp.
