1970 AMC Rebel "The Machine".

American Motors' high performance halo vehicle made its official debut October 25, 1969, in Dallas, Texas; the site of the National Hot Rod Association's World Championship Drag Race Finals. The Machine was developed from a collaboration between Hurst Performance and AMC, but unlike the compact SC/Rambler, there was no official connection between the two parties once production commenced.

The standard engine in The Machine was AMC's 390 cu in (6.4 L) V8 engine with 340 hp (254 kW) and 430 pound-feet (59 kg·m) of torque @ 3600 rpm. It came with special heads, valve train, cam, as well as a redesigned intake and exhaust. This was the most powerful in any AMC vehicle while retaining features required for normal street operations, as well as components to assure outstanding performance characteristics without incurring high-unit cost penalties.

American Motors stated in its marketing promotion that "The Machine is not that fast," the car was capable to "give many muscle cars from the big three (General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler) a run for their money".

The Machine could spring from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 6.4 seconds, a creditable showing even today.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) price was US$3,475 (approximately $20,000 in 2007 dollars). After the initial run of 1,000 units with its distinctive and easily recognizable identity, The Machine was available without the stripes in other colors with a blacked out hood.

The rarest of all paint schemes for the Machine is Frost White with a flat-black hood (72A-8A), with only three made. The original trim scheme became a $75 option. There were a total of 2,326 Rebel Machines built in 1970.

There were lots of Frost White Machines made, not just 3. Rumours of that sort have been going around for years but are simply untrue. I've seen seven just in Kenosha, Detroit and Toronto. I owned one of them until recently. There were no RBW Machines made with flat black hoods. Those 3 are cars with swapped hoods.
The Red Streak Stripe kit was a $75.00 option right from the start.
The car in the photos appears to have one of my stripe kits on it.

I have a set of machine wheels a complete set, only thing is I'm missing one trim ring the kind that is pressed in. Anyone knows where I might find the missing link? Please contact me with any info on my search. Thank You. Mike Gonzalez 817-517-3858.
