Mocha Dick: 1969 AMC Rebel Wagon

Every day, I drive down the roads in suburban SoCal, and lament the takeover of ugly crossovers and sport futility vehicles.  I get the usability of the modern small SUV...I really do...but when did needless vertical height become a cure-all for ugly tail lights?  And why can't we have wagons?  When did V8 powered rear-drive wagons become not a thing that new car shoppers want?  Am I the only one who would rather drive something ancient to avoid introducing yet another turd shaped blight on the automotive landscape?  Get off the lawn...that's where I park my boat!  Find this 1969 AMC Rebel Wagon offered for $6000 in Lexington, KY via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller:

1969 AMC Rebel
condition: excellent

130,000. Beautiful car.

Worth coming to see it in person. Runs well, no problems at all. Starts great, warm or cold.

Asking $6,000, pretty firm. Not in a hurry to sell it. Appraisal pages are available on request.

This thing has been a blast.

  3. Those door handles found their way onto everything... Nice, clean survivor, though an Amazon wagon is a better way to drive one. ;)
