AMC Rebel Machine
Muscle car fans: this is required viewing.
AMC fans: here's some incredible footage that you never knew existed.
Here comes 49 seconds of the only known factory film footage of the 1970
AMC Rebel Machine. The outrageous red/white/blue monster that is as much
an icon of muscle car excess as the Dodge Daytona/Plymouth Super Bee.
I bought this 35mm film several years ago off of eBay. The vendor had
purchased it from a film company that had gone out of business. That
company had been storing films and bits of film for the past 40 years or
The rest of this film is the entire AMC product introduction film for 1970.
It's one of only two 35mm film prints that I own. I'm sorry that I don't
have the soundtrack. Back in the day, films were assembled from pieces.
The other piece to this film would have been a 35mm soundtrack. (That's
all. Just the sound.) These two pieces would have been mixed together to
create a master. Maybe the soundtrack will surface someday, and maybe
we'll get to hear what AMC had to say about this classic, low-volume muscle
Until then, enjoy shots of the Rebel Machine doing donuts on a live
airstrip! (I can only imagine what Homeland Security would do to this guy.
I'm sure they have some room at Guantanamo.)

One last short burn-out with my HOT 1969 AMC Javelin
In June of 2008 I was forced to sell my beloved 69 Javelin because of
medical problems that my wife was having, and loss of work time, and pay,
to be by her side no matter what it takes. The bills still keep coming in,
and I need to turn her into cash. My 1969 AMC Javelin 1 hour before the new
owner picked up the car. I have owned for almost 40 years. It has a built
343, 30 over, Crane cam & kit, Hooker Headers, Offy 360 manifold, 4 speed,
3:91 posi rear, Lalewood tracton bars. It is a very strong runner, and I am
still crying over the loss, that will never be able to be replaced. The
second part of the clip is my sons 1968 AMX. At least he will carry on the
AMC tradition in the family. Maybe he will let me get behind the wheel
sometime. UPDATE!!! Nov 2008... The new owner has informed me that he had
blown the motor up, iy only has 9000 miles on it since a total restoration
almost 25 years ago. Way to go!!!! I should have sold my Corvette and kept
my Javelin. Boy did I screw up!!!
UPDATE 3/04/2012. I once agin have a smile on my face, as I just purchased
a fantastic looking BBG 1969 AMX. It sounds and looks a lot like my BBG
Here is the link to the day I picked up my new ride,
1969 AMC AMX S/S Pete's Patriot
This '69 AMX was the 1969 Division V Champion in Super Stock (SS/D) drag
racing. It was owned and sponsored by Peterson Motor Company in Kearney,
Nebraska. This run took place at Kearney Raceway Park during Kearney's
week-long cruise night event.
