My only AMC.

Post  dwc43 on Thu Jan 29, 2009 10:52 pm

I had a '74 Matador that I bought off of a sub school teacher that I drove for a while. Quite mix of parts. 401 big block with an A727 trans and a Dana 60 rear axle with 4.10's. Had factory duals and a Motorcraft 4bbl, not a holley. It had Mopar rear leafs and a Ford front end. Had the coil spring trapped between the upper mount and the upper A arm like Ford did on a few of there cars.

It was black with black interior. I wished I still had that car or at least some pics of it. IT sure would fly, burn the tires off, and corner pretty decent too. Very Happy

In the AMC engine it had Mopar LA lifters, Chevy small block push rods and rockers, GM Delco ignition and alternator, probably a Motorcraft carb, Saginaw steering box, Eaton power steering pump, etc, etc...

Bobby Allison was pretty successful with one.

you are right. IT had a Gm dist. and a Motorcraft 4bbl. I think it had a Federal pwr steer pump, not sure. I was thinking it had a Ford alt, but it may have been a GM. It had the fuel saver vacuum gauge in the dash too. Not that I ever kept my foot out of it long enough to save any fuel ... lol. Very Happy
