Original Onus: 1968 AMC Rebel SST 343

One of conundrums facing the buyer of vintage iron is the decision to keep to stock/original or modify it.  It is your car and you can do what you want, but if the car is original and untouched there is this overwhelming consensus from car guys that you should leave it alone, even if it drives pretty horribly stock and comes with a vinyl top.  Like this 1968 AMC Rebel SST 343 offered for $10,500 in Eugene, OR via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

Tipper FuelTruck (who does indeed drive a tanker, he sent in a pic one time!) delivered the good stuff once again with this Rebel.   This is the late 60s when AMC was becoming what Saab became in the 1990s, — the other Cola.  It didn’t help sales numbers for either company, but in hindsight they made some interesting vehicles for the elbow-patch crowd and prices for a nice Rebel isn’t bad today.

 

Under the hood you’ll find a 343 cubic inch Typhoon V8 that was available in 235 hp or 280 hp spec — not sure which one we are looking at.  However, the seller does say that it is an excellent driver condition car and is in very good condition.

Under the hood this thing is well optioned with factory AC, power brakes, power steering, and this continues on the inside with bucket seats, and a floor mounted automatic shifter in a center console.  You’ve also got an 8-track player — not word from the seller if it functions.
