This 1970 AMC Rebel Station Wagon is such a rare and distinct sight
these days that it's especially nice to find one that's the right
mix of preservation and correct restoration. So look over
everything from the V8 power to the A/C interior, and you'll see a
grocery-getter that feels like a true time capsule.
Wagons are large in size, but this one can't help but attract even
more attention. The factory-correct Hialeah Yellow is a vibrant
color, and it was resprayed later in life to continue to give it a
nice presentation. Plus, the body panels are exceptionally
straight. That way you can see the well-creased muscle car-like
front end, form-fitting chrome bumpers, and the full side trim that
appears like an almost unbroken line. There's also just a nice
rarity with AMC products. After all, a 1970 Chevelle wagon is
considered a rare sight these days, and Chevy produced well over
two and a half times more of those than AMC made Rebel wagons. So
individuality is assured almost everywhere you go.
Inside is a highly original presentation with a sea of green that's
as lively as the exterior color. The carpeting, door panels,
headliner, and sun visors are all quite nice. And while the texture
on the front seat isn't perfect, we're quite glad to see it still
there because that intricate design can only be original once.
There's plenty of room for six across the two wide benches, and the
cargo area has space for all the gear. So if you're the type of
person who likes to go to destinations in your classics (including
spending all day at the car show,) you can instantly see the appeal
of this wagon. Even the front is a well-done vintage driver's
setup. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the
log speedometer and the remarkably clean instruments. Everything
you want is working - from the cool vertical-style AM radio to the
cold-blowing factory air conditioning. In fact, the only addition
we can spot is the auxiliary gauge trio. And it's cleanly mounted
in a wood-like trim to look like a true 1970s piece.
On a car like this, it's particularly nice to have such an
authentic presentation under the hood. The 304 cubic-inch V8 was
unique to AMC/Jeep, and the bright blue block will certainly turn
some heads. The motor starts easily, idles smoothly, and makes a
nice tune out of the newer dual exhaust. Adding to this great
cruising classic attitude are features like the three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, and wide BF Goodrich T/As
on classic American Motors wheels.
A well-preserved wagon is hard to find. So when one looks this
good, offers this much distinction, and is priced so right, you
know you need to hurry to take it home. Call today!!!
