You can't help but get excited when someone builds a street-eating machine out of something uncommon like this 1967 AMC Rebel 770 coupe. But more than just unusual with standout paint, it has been built with a performance 385ci V8 and plenty of other goodies so that it's as quick as it is memorable.
The paint probably already sealed the deal for you on this one. The two-tone flat black and gloss blue have not only been applied with a professional hand, but it's also truly a thoughtful presentation. Everything on the upper half of this car is black, with even the trim pieces like the side mirror, windshield wipers and window surrounds consumed by darkness. This also goes for the bumpers and door handles. So the only hint of shine is on the knock-off spinners on the large American Racing black wheels. This is a fantastic presentation right down to the details like the hint of aggression provided by the red pinstripe that is the boarder for the black and blue (and it's a nice match for the red front disc brake calipers, too.)
When you open the door you can instantly see this is an interior that's ready to get down to business. The black cloth seating provides added comfort, and it matches nicely with the carpeting, door panels, headliner, and dash. You get the factory AMC three-spoke sports steering wheel, and all the right controls, including the heat/defrost and extra wide speedometer are directly in front. But you've also spotted that Hurst shifter with Turbo Action commanded center surrounding it. Oh yeah, that's a wicked setup, and when combined with the auxiliary gauges just ahead, it really lets you know there's something special under the hood.
Don't let the shine of the engine bay fool you; this is a workhorse, not a glamour poser. The 385 cubic-inch Chevy V8 has been built for combat with go-fast goodies like Chevrolet Performance Bowtie aluminum heads, Chevy performance intake, Holley four-barrel carburetor, CSR electric water pump, MSD ignition, Moroso Ultra 40 wires, and Moroso valve covers. That blue exhaust system look great, and it adds plenty of performance and thunder because those are Hooker headers that feed the rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust. It's a total package that's built for being first off the line and staying ahead the whole time. So the performance V8 is mated to a two-speed Powerglide with a healthy stall to start you in the ideal powerband.
We know you're thinking about all the places you want to take this cool coupe. But also remember it's a rare treat. AMC only built 9,685 examples of the Rebel 770 hardtop this year, and we doubt any of the survivors are this wild and nicely done today. So you need to hurry if you want to take this unique speed machine home. Call now!!
