First Report of Work Done - San Antonio, Texas Stop

August 25, 2001

The Charity AMX was delivered to San Antonio on August 7, 2001 by Brian Tolley of Alamo AMC (and AMC of Houston). The car is currently housed at the indoor shop of Schneider Brothers Racing, where I am renting space.

Obviously, there are still a lot of parts that need to be acquired/obtained/restored. I'd also like to possibly plot out the cars next destination if possible, since it is getting to the point where the various clubs should start making plans for their contribution. Here is a list of the tasks that will still need to be done:

Alamo AMC will provide:

  • Getting new engine running and properly broken in
  • Repair cooling system
  • Purchase U-joints and install driveshaft
  • Redo brakes
  • Complete clutch linkage
  • Clean out fuel system
  • Mounting and balancing of rally wheels and tires

Our goal is to provide the next club with a running, driving car.

The subsequent clubs should plan to take on one or more of the following tasks:

  • Installation of rear quarter patch panel and completion of rear quarter body work
  • Undercarriage cleaning/undercoating
  • Alignment of doors, front fenders, hood
  • Full paint job
  • Installation/resealing of all glass
  • Completion of interior; installation
  • Completion of Ram-Air setup
  • Chroming/replacement/installation of bumpers
  • Chroming/replacement/installation of taillight assemblies
  • Installation of lights and grille assembly
  • Striping and trim work (if applicable)
