Only Generation (1971)

In 1971, American Motors Corporation was determined to continue the fading muscle car trend. The company offered a continuation of the 1970 Rebel "Machine" performance package, switching the Machine branding and  to the Matador model, minus the standard patriotic red, white, and blue coloring. This new Machine put an available 401 CID V8, among other options. Still, few were produced, and an original Matador Machine is an exceptionally rare muscle car.
