1974 AMC Matador Oleg Cassini edition
What a rare car! These cars never really sold in volume..the styling was a bit controversial at the time. This Oleg Cassini edition is even more rare! Lincoln was into naming special editions of their cars, so AMC was just following an industry custom! They also made Gremlins with Levi interiors!





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.

AMC Matador
A not too often seen vehicle, a 1978 AMC Matador 2-door coupe. This was a styling direction taken by AMC, starting for the 1974 model year. This example was in a gold color originally, and has air conditioning, 360 cubic inch V-8, Torque-Command 3-speed automatic transmission and an uncommon option, not offered by any other manufacturer with this style of roof, roll-down back windows. Restoration will be continuing over this winter season.





The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.

I thought you might like a look at this really clean little 1962 AMC Rambler American. It's still powered by the original flathead straight six, with only 78,xxx original miles. The paint is slick and the interior has been completely redone. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
