Rebel, Rebel Yell!

The Rambler Rebel is an automobile that was produced by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) of Kenosha, Wisconsin for the 1957–1960 model years, as well as again for 1966 and 1967.

Introduced as a stand-alone model in one body style, the 1957 Rambler Rebel is credited for being the first factory-produced intermediate-sized high-performance car. This later became known as the muscle car market segment. It was also to be among the earliest production cars equipped with electronic fuel injection.

The second and third generations essentially became the equivalent Rambler Six models, but equipped with a V8 engine. The Rebel nameplate was reintroduced in 1966 as the top-line intermediate-sized two-door hardtop. For the 1967 model year, AMC's all-new intermediate line took the Rebel name. American Motors dropped the historic "Rambler" marque from these intermediate sized models to become the AMC Rebel starting with the 1968 model year.

  1. The first muscle car - I didn't know that!

  2. Oh, wow. I had an old used Rebel when I was in college. It was so powerful, it was impossible not to speed in it. I loved it but it was terrible in the snow and really hard to get started in the winter. I loved that car.

  3. Funny that picture of David Bowie. You wouldn't see someone with a cigarette dangling from his mouth today. Once saw him at the airport when we were travelling to the UK.

    Not a car I remember. Wasn't in England.
