1970 rebel machine

The 1970 American Motors Rebel Machine was introduced in late 1969 as a drag racing machine. Built between a conjunction betwen Hurst and AMC (simliar to the SC/Rambler) it featured a powerful motor and stunning red, white, and blue body treatment.

The powertrain of the Rebel Machine was a 340hp 390cid V8 engine which was mated to a close ratio four speed transmission. The power made its way to the ground through a beefed rear end with 3.54 or 3.91 gears and featured a heavy duty suspension. Styled 15 inch wheels and raised white letter tires complimented with disc brakes made for a very handling vehicle despite a 3600 pound curb weight.
