Buyers could select from five exterior colors including snow white, stardust silver, diamond blue, wild plum, and Trans-Am red.

A total of 22,964 examples of the SST were produced and just 3,220 of the AMX. AMX models had a different radiator grille design, a sport steering wheel, deck mounted spoiler, a 304 CID V8, and slot-style wheels with E70-14 blackwall tires.

George Follmer continued to champion the popularity of the model by winning a second SCCA Trans-Am title for AMC.
