AMC Javelin, AMX Rebel Matador Hornet & Jensen Interceptor Performance Transmission Overdrive
Owners of AMC and the British Jensen vehicles are common customers of Gear Vendors. Many of the Chrysler powered Interceptors and the modified Callaway Corvettes came with Gear Vendors products. The Series II had a power pack option that put a Gear Vendors overdrive behind its TorqueFlite 727. AMC was integral to the founding of Gear Vendors, when American Motors went bankrupt in the 70's, Rick's father bought up the de Normanville overdrives at the AMC factory in Mexico. He brought them back for the Maquiladora program of Hornets and Gremlins with 308s and teh Ford 3 speed Toploader with de Normanville overdrive behind it. Rick's father took up licensing of it and re-birthed it as a Gear Vendors product, with some obvious improvements in design and strength. Because of this relationship AMC holds a special place in our hearts, and we still do a lot with AMX's, Javelins, and Rebels - with specific kits to fit them to those cars without modification to the structure. Common applications are the 727 and the Toploader. For any questions about our products, or to purchase them, call (800)999-9555 or visit http://gearvendors.com.
