'THE MACHINE!' Never gets old as my kid and I randomly look at eachother and yell it out loud "THE MACHINE!" I literally laugh my a** off. Not because it's funny that we act that way (which it is); but it's such a cool way to engage and acknowledge the car that we're riding in or talking about taking for or just came back from a ride. Forget about 'Thumbs Up', we get the fist pumping 'Hell Yeah!' when we drive by such enthusiastic onlookers. The Rebel Machine was the Top of the Line segment of the Rebel nameplate for 1970, AMC produced just 1,936 Machines out a total 21,699 Rebels. Now get THIS! Few produced were the premium RED, WHITE, and BLUE,,,,; So it is very Safe to Say that this Rebel Machine is Especially Rare, Desirable, and Collectible Muscle Car. The Machine The most recognizable muscle car version of the AMC Rebel was named The Machine and available for the 1970 model year, following the success of the 1969 SC/Rambler. In its most recognizable trim it was painted white with a large blue stripe on its hood, and accented in bold red, white, and blue reflective stripes (made by 3M) in the front, sides, and rear. "The car had the build of a proper muscle car and when it came to its performance, it did not disappoint despite weighing 3,307 lbs. The cream of the crop for the 1970 AMCs was the Rebel Machine. They first brought out the Rebel Machine to the public in October 1969 at the NHRA World Championship drags in Dallas. It was basically an SST, but had high-back bucket seats, a heavy-duty cooling system that used a Power-Flex fan, a functional Ram-air hood scoop, upgraded suspension and a handling package. Compared with the 390 inside the SST, the Machine’s 390 made an additional 15 horsepower for 340 horsepower total. This was due to the ram-air system, high-flow dual plane intake, and high-flow dogleg cylinder heads. It also had a dual-exhaust system, front and rear sway bars, power-disc brakes, a limited-slip differential, and a Detroit Locker with up to 5.00:1 ratios. For a transmission, a Borg-Warner T10 Hurst floor-shifted four-speed was one option. A pistol-grip shifted automatic was also available. For the first 1,000 units sold, only a red, white, and blue color scheme was available. The body was white and there were red stripes from the fender back and a blue section on the hood where the scoop and hood-mounted tachometer were. Our car has been kept up and treated well for many years; Restored (frame on) with Rebel Sheet Metal partial quarters this Machine has always been a solid exmaple. The Driveline has been rebuilt, headers, manifold, carburetor added; We have the original intake and exhaust manifolds as shown in picture. Interior was obviously done and looks as nice as rest of car. Magnum 500 style wheels have been added during the restoration and by owner's choice they look great on the Machine. This bad boy Machine has been a tale of pride and joy and it shows. The performance is spot on and the Machine goes down the road as if on the drag strip.
