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.

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.





Interview With Nash Motors and American Motors Engineer Howard Turtle part 1
Author Patrick Foster interviews Nash and American Motors engineer Howard Turtle for the Nash Heritage Preservation Project. Mr. Turtle tested Nash engines and did crash tests for Nash Motors back in the 1950s and later. Very interesting part of automotive history.





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.

1969 American Motors AMX - 2014 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach
BJ: Sure, there are a blue zillion vintage Camaros and Mustangs on the road, but how often do you see a really cherry AMX like this one? This two-seater has the rare and highly desirable Go-Pack option, with period-correct olive green paint over tan interior.





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!

1967 AMC Rambler American , commercial American Motors
1969 was last year in the USA for AMC to use the name Rambler on it's automobiles. In 1950, the Rambler was introduced by Nash. After the merger of Hudson and Nash to form AMC, the name then was also affixed to Hudsun Ramblers. By 1958, Nash and Hudson names would be gone and only Rambler used by AMC (if you see someone with a post Rambler American or Metropolitan calling the car a Nash, they are incorrect, the name Nash was no longer used after 1958). By 1969, the move was back to focusing on a full line of cars. With then impeding introduction of the AMC Hornet, Rambler was phased out. The final year is simply just a Rambler, not a Rambler American, that too was phased out. Over 100,000 Ramblers were built in the USA for 1969. During the 60's, AMC HeyDays, they were EVERYWHERE. The Rambler Name continued on in other parts of the world. You can find Rambler Ambassadors, Matadors and Hornets in Mexico and Austrailia and New Zealand and South Africa.
