C3H8 & C3H8 Accessories: 1979 AMC Sprint

This next car is something special. It might have started life as a simple AMC Spirit, but it now sports some fighter plane style shark teeth and a propane powered 4.2 liter inline-6. The seller assures us that propane is “just like gas but clean and odorless.” Anyone who has played ice hockey will tell you otherwise. Find this 1979 AMC Sprint offered for $3,500 in Waxhaw, NC via craigslist. Tip from CP.
