It can be a daunting task locating parts for these vehicles, this page will help you.
Over the years these autos have dwindled to the point that some parts have become very hard to hunt down.
Choosing used parts is always worth a shot because the wrecking yards still have vehicles that havent been crushed.
High operating costs, restrictive zoning laws, rising property taxes and a terrible market for scrap metal has all had a negative impact.
Sadly many wrecking yard owners are getting out of AMC parts because of their relatively low turnover.
While the salvage yard inventories dwindle, you’re also more than likely going to hear “sorry, that part is obsolete” at your local auto store.
Thankfully there are new parts all the time that are being made and you will find them and many other resources here.

Of these local shops I have found Autozone and Schuck’s O’Reilly to have the best stock availability on AMC parts.
Of these two excellent auto parts stores, I have found AutoZone to have the best access to non stocked items, most of the time they are only 3 days out.
*One tip when buying a non stock item from a local dealer, if they do not have a part number listed for the product don’t buy it! Often times they will have an item that says it is orderable but does not have a part number and it can sit in limbo for days, weeks and often times months……. I speak from experience =)
You are better off ordering from one of our AMC only dealers in section two of this page.
Please let us know if you do not see your favorite AMC supplier on this list by using our contact page…….
The roadways are seeing fewer and fewer of these vehicles already.
When you couple that with accidents, wear and emmense rust in the Northeast,
you have a vehicle that is quickly becoming extinct.
So next time you see an AMC or one of it’s ancestors rambling down the road, take a good hard look.
These are a vanishing breed and are becoming a lost peice of our American heritage.
