The AMC Rebel was produced from 1967 through 1970 when it was replaced by the AMC Matador. It was available as a four-door sedan, two-door coupe, and four-door station wagon. The base engine was a 232 cubic-inch inline-six cylinder power-plant. Optional engines included a 290, 343, and 390 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engines.
In 1970 AMC introduced a highly-collectible, limited production version dubbed the Rebel Machine. Under the hood was a 390 eight-cylinder capable of producing 340 horsepower. It was given a white color with red, white and blue stripes. It was only produced in 1970 and a total of 2326 examples were produced. By Daniel Vaughan | Jan 2006
