1977 AMC Matador $22,995
Take some time to appreciate this 1977 AMC Matador Barcelona coupe, because someone has been doing that all its life. These were pricey grand touring machines when new, and today, it has retained all the best features (including A/C) with the right amount of added care along the way.
A good AMC is often hard to find. After all, they made so few of them – there were less than 7,000 Matador coupes produced in '77, and how many do you think survived over forty years looking this good? In fact, the first impression is truly retro cool. The factory-correct two-tone Golden Ginger and Sand Tan make for the ideal '70s machine. It's a high gloss finish that appears to have a high degree of originality with the right touch-ups along the way. Everything from the half vinyl roof to the badge on the hood lets you know someone cared for this correctly throughout its lifetime. Even the two-tone wheels are part of the pricey Barcelona package, and it still looks fantastic today.
The Barcelona special edition also came with a unique interior, and so it's great to have it so well preserved today. A full-sized coupe means plenty of room for family and friends to share the special soft cloth presentation. Plus, everyone stays comfortable thanks to the features like the America Motors branded AM/FM stereo and cold-blowing factory air conditioning – rare luxuries of the time that now are even more impressive today. And this keeps that '70s cool attitude everywhere you look. So you'll love the factory dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a commanding view of it all. Not only is the wood-like appearance on the dash, but AMC even put it in the gauges, too! So people will really love the retro-cool details on this survivor-grade coupe.
On a car like this, it's particularly nice to have such an authentic presentation under the hood. The optional 360 cubic-inch V8 was unique to AMC, and the consignor also states this is original to the car. It has the clean and tidy look of good investments, and it even has the right decals. And because the AMC V8 stayed in production well after the Chrysler takeover, parts availability remains plentiful. The V8 produces 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 with discs up front.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records, service manuals, and the owner's manual. So with a classic that's this unique, preserved, and affordably priced, you know you need to hurry to catch this deal. Call now!
