The SST was available from 1970 - 1972. The Hornet was a solid, well-built car...My Dad had one and it was like being in a mini tank...They don't build like THIS anymore! Check out this Wikipedia write-up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_Hornet

The SST version had higher bases, but not all were 360. SST was simply a model name, and the base motor was a 232 in 70. In 72 all hornets were SST I think, and it was dropped in 73. You may be thinking of the Hornet SC/360 which was a special edition car
