1974 AMC Matador Modified YelBlu Disney061514
You may have seen Matadors before, but I'd bet you've never seen one like this before! The owner really liked the original, but those bumpers were a problem, so he basically redesigned the car's exterior with parts that he hand fabricated. The interior was redone in the same seating material used in commercial airliners. You have to wonder, if you didn't know the history of this car, that it might have been an "idea" car generated by AMC stylists..such is the quality and the boldness of design of this one-off car. Kudos to the owner/designer...a real tribute to imaginative design! The engine is an AMC 401.
