AMC-American Motors MODEL-BY-MODEL


1961 RAMBLER CLASSIC

Not exactly what you'd call an American Muscle Car. But, it serves to illustrate where AMC was with its Rambler brand in the early 1960s. Ramblers were cheap, good on gas, well-built & reliable.


1967 RAMBLER ROGUE

AMC was quick to jump on the musclecar-wagon. They dressed up a Rambler American & added their hot little 290 small block V8. This one's a convertible. But by '67 GM had moved on to big blocks in their musclecars.


AMC JAVELIN

The Javelin was AMC's foray into the Pony Car Wars. To make the AMX, they shortened the wheelbase and eliminated the back seats, making it a 2-seater. Unfortunately, AMC pushed it as the lowest-priced 2-seat sports car in the US, competing with Corvette. Bad move.


1968 AMC AMX

Introductory year for the new Javelin. Designed by the legendary Dick Teague, the Javelin was bigger than the Mustang, nicer than the Camaro & reasonably fast. Even the Highway Patrol liked them.


1969 AMC AMX

The second year for the AMX brings more options and more power.


1969 AMC JAVELIN

The Javelin was AMC's answer to the Mustang, Camaro & Firebird. Good cars, just too little too late.


1971 AMC JAVELIN

Second-generation Javelin got a new body & moved upmarket with a new emphasis on 'personal luxury' instead of raw performance. It was the 70s after all.


1973 AMC HORNET

AMC stuffed a 304 V8 into the little Hornet to create a sub-sized muscle car.

WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED

We are growing as fast as we can, gathering and taking eye-popping photos of awesome Classic American Muscle Cars, doing research on specifications and history, and writing content. We all love these great cars, so it’s not like work, in fact, it’s a blast. But it does take time. If you see that we’re lacking in some area, we just don’t have the photos and/or content yet to finish. Give us some time and as we get more eye-popping photos, we will continue to flesh out the site. Join us as we grow, but please be patient with that growth.

PS: Special thanks go out to Specialty Sales (www.SpecialtySales.com) for the hundreds of eye-popping pictures they've allowed us to use. Specialty has 4 classic car showrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area full of gorgeous classics. We'd also like to thank The Goodguys (www.good-guys.com) for putting on some of the best car shows around, and allowing me to take all these great pictures. Thanks again to you both.
