Meticulous resto. Rare and exciting car!

Only 200 miles since finished a few months ago. $50,000 restoration in receipts for paint and parts, not including labor. It has undergone a total nut and bolt meticulous restoration with "day 2" period correct performance upgrades. Rare, original Rebel Machine with its original 390 motor and 4-speed. This car is unique and exciting. AMC was trying desperately to boost sales and needed something drastic. This car certainly delivered, it got a lot of attention. 1 year only build, the first 1,000 had the bold red-white-blue color scheme. Another 1,300 were made in various colors.
