Well the car is not there anymore so hopefully someone bought it who wasn't a cheapskate. After reading some of the comments here it's no wonder you don't see many old AMC cars on the road. The car was complete and in good shape, an excellent candidate for a restoration and people are whining about  $7500? The fact is nobody makes any money on 99% of old car restorations no matter what the make. I restored mine because I enjoy working on and driving them, not to make money. So what if you pay a couple thousand more than you think it's worth, have fun restoring and driving it. Like I said if you're in this to make money you'd best find another line of work.

Thanks for showing us the near, rare, Rebel! I too hope it went to a good AMC home.

A/C, shift command, that is a nice car, if he gets what he's asking good for him. Always have to have wiggle room. Only takes one buyer......

It gets frustrating when people have inflated ideas about value. I see it all the time. I put way more dough into my car than it is worth and I know that and would price it accordingly if I were to sell. My car fully restored is worth about 5k. It's a 4 door 66 classic so I wouldn't be asking 25k. I'm not out to rip people off. That's all I'm saying.

 The worst are those guys that let cars rot in a field asking double or triple the value of the car then when they die the old rusted junk gets crushed and nobody wins.

4 door cars generally don't bring much money. I thought the 2 door pictured was a decent deal. You can't buy a like 2 door from the Big 3 that cheap.

One would have to know what the underside of this Rebel looked like; how it ran; etc. before making a judgement on price. The only obvious drawback was the incorrect interior. Since '66 Rebel's and Ambassador hardtops came with such nifty interiors, that would be a minus in my book. Otherwise, asking price didn't appear way out of line!

I wondered what the seats came from. Looks like an old German made early 70's Mercury Capri seats maybe.
