The AMC 360 was introduced in 1971 in J-series pickups and Wagoneers. It has a cast iron block and cylinder head with over head valves and hydraulic lifters.

In 1971, the AMC 360 have very high rating. I would assume these are gross ratings and the later are net ratings.

In 1972, the 2bbl 360 is more conservatively rated, presumably these are net ratings.

In 1973, an optional 4bbl carburetor was available. The horsepower and torque ratings for this version are significantly better.
