    Wife 1.0 had a Rebel SST convertible which was a sharp looker with decent performance with a 343.
    When we were dating her parents had some kind of AMC in which the front seats folded ALL the way back.
    Make of that what you will.

    Cool. Thanks for the photo. I am running a 360 bored .040 over and fuel injected in my CJ jeep.

    I'm a Mopar guy. The 340 was the gem, some put the 360 heads on it, but the 340 bottom was special.

    And yea, nope the Marlin was ugly back then and hasn't changed.

    I've always had a soft spot for some of AMC's cars but the Marlin has got to be the ugliest fastback panel truck I can think of.

    Their 232-258 cu.in. 6 cylinder engines were very strong and well built and saw production from 1964 till the early 90s in various forms.

    The AMC 290/343/390 engines although not as popular as those from the big 3 due to market share were never the less very solid performers.
    Good enough to take the Trans Am series with Mark Donahue at the wheel.

    Some guy here in town has the little AMC with big a$$ flat rear window but he did a 4X4 conversion to it.. running on really narrow Super Swampers. Pretty cool.

    Whenever I see an old American car I think 'that thing would be cool as a 4x4'.

    My mother had a Rambler with the fold down seats. I tried to borrow it as often as possible when I had a date!!!!

    Hey now!



    1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST - 360 with 400 lbs of torque, yet super smooth and reliable, ice cold A/C, 2.02 intakes, 10:1, forged crank and 4 bolt mains, ram air, 4 piston calipers, 3.54 pozi and a low 1st - a real bullet off the line.
