Many of the most radical factory street machines came out of the late 60s and early 70s and the 1970 AMC Rebel Machine is no exception. We join Dennis Gage to check out Joey Lange’s extensive collection of classic iron, but more importantly take an up close look at his stunning ’70 Rebel Machine.
While admittedly Lange started his classic car passion with rare MoPars, it quickly spread to include high-performance AMCs and other makes as well. The 390 cubic inch engines drew Joey to the SC/Rambler and the Rebel Machine, and being a factory built drag car helped seal the deal. The one-year only Rebel Machine had a high-powered engine and low production run of only 2,500 making it an instant collectable car.
The distinctive red, white & blue color scheme of the Machine and unique massive hood scoop with built-in tachometer seem outrageous today but it is what it took to get notice with all of the wild factory offerings coming out of Detroit. The color scheme is carried into the no-nonsense all-business interior.
With 345 horsepower under the hood, you know Dennis can’t resist getting behind the wheel of the classic street pounding muscle car. Join Dennis on his test ride where he proves the temptation is too strong to keep the tires from spinning.
