"On my very first run it blew a headgasket.  From there I had a lot
of clutch problems until I changed from the Scheiffer to a Borg and Beck.  The fastest car at the time was an SS/D Camaro that I was able to beat more than he beat me. I only raced at Polar Raceway in Alaska.  I raced a 66 Chevelle, and changed to a 69 390 auto AMX when my dad became the owner of the AMC dealership in 1968.  The factory rep told us about the Super Stock AMX program and we told him to order us one.  Didn't know it was approved until it showed up on the truck with some of our other cars. Dad dropped the AMC franchise in 1971 and we just sold Datsuns until 1985, when the business was sold."-Ivan

Called "Container Car" only because the current owner stated in a conversation the car was stored in a shipping container.  No other reason. Was the only Super Stock AMX in Alaska and rumors of the other ones, or parted out cars, can be traced by current owner to other AMXs. 

 "Tom looks like you have been busy, some corrections on your info. The original owner's name was Ivan Felton Jr. He raced the car for two years. In 1971 I purchased the car from him and raced it through 1976. Best time as a SS/C was an 11.02 two time state superstock champion. I sold the car to my buddy Paul Maiden and he raced it as a A/MP with a Dick Maskin engine for a year or two. It was put into a sea-land container in Soldotna Alaska where it sat for 30 years. The name the container car came from a conversation I had with a AMX parts fellow. I told him about the super stock I used to race in Alaska, I didn't think he believed me so I sent him a copy of the window sticker.  Fast forward to 2005 I was on the internet when I came across Mike Weaver's site and saw that it was listed as missing, the only person I ever told the location of the car was Mr.  and I told him it was in a sea-land container.  Now with my interest peaked I contacted my old friend to find that he had just moved the car back to Anchorage, a deal was struck and with Paul's help the car is now in California. I've been locating parts for the last four years and am begining to do a full on restoration"
