YAK Car Pic of the Day
by Jim Corbran - posted 12:01 am, December 27, 2011
This 1967 Rambler Rebel 770 was seen a while back in Franklinville. It was apparently owned by a volunteer firefighter (note the rooftop blue lightbar) who’s ready for anything — the photo was taken during the summer months, but a close look reveals a set of snow tires. Hey, you never know! The 1967 model year was the last for the Rebel to be called Rambler; starting in 1968 it was the AMC Rebel. By the 1971 model year the slightly face-lifted car was known as the AMC Matador. Needless to say, name changes didn’t do much for sales, but it somehow managed to hang on through the 1978 model year.
