1972 AMC Matador
It's hard to find more full-size classic car distinction for the money. After all, a 1972 AMC Matador would already be a standout way to arrive, even without the great features like bright red paint, big V8 power, and much more.
We love a good AMC because they represent a cool classic American. And since they're production figures were lower than The Big Three, that makes for plenty or rare distinction on the classic car scene. So prepare to never fly under the radar with this full-sized sedan. Plus, this one is wearing an updated application of its factory-correct Trans Am Red. That means a bold presentation to grab attention, and plenty of shine to impress them all. We particularly like the look of these first-gen Matadors that offer a few gradual curves that go with the well-creased sheetmetal. Plus, this one was built before new bumper laws, so those bold chrome kings fit snugly to the design. While you're checking out the brightwork, take some time to appreciate the grille. All the blacked-out space in there seems like the perfect complement to the upgraded black alloy wheels.
Inside is a nice AMC interior with an interesting twist. The split front and rear bench seem to be borrowed from a second-gen Matador. It gives this one a nice distinctive touch, and we really like the comfortable cloth inserts. Space and comfort for family and friends are two big reason to have a full-size classic sedan like this one. But the Matador was also developed during the era when the driver was king. That's why the factory dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the driver-oriented dash. Because AMC offered a unique and artful presentation, we're glad to see everything in place from the heat/defrost sliders, to the vertical AM/FM radio that's still on display.
The AMC V8 is a great motor to have under the hood. It was unique to this independent automaker, so it's nice to have such an authentic presentation under the hood. With a 4 barrel carburator feeding this cool cruiser, everything from the valve covers to the decals are still correctly in place, so it's also believed that this is the original motor to the car. And because the AMC V8 stayed in production well after the Chrysler takeover, parts availability should be as easy as any other American car. The V8 fires up nicely, and it produce plenty of torque to keep you going down the road with ease. Adding to this great cruising classic attitude are features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a lot of classic car distinction for quite an affordable price. Don't let this Matador slip away, call today!
