It’s 4th of July – Celebrate American Muscle Cars

1970 AMC Rebel muscle car


July 4th is a time of great celebration and pageantry, and it is often the peak time for classic car shows and vintage vehicle events. The holiday car shows and parades give us all a chance to look back and appreciate American muscle cars and their impact on our nation’s history. One such American automaker was the American Motors Corporation (AMC).

AMC was created in 1954 with the merging of Hudson Motors and Nash-Kelvinator. This was the largest corporate merger in the US at the time, and it was done in attempt to compete against General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. By 1958, both the Nash and Hudson names were eliminated in favor of using the brand “Rambler.” By the late 1960s, however, Rambler was dropped in favor of the AMC badge.

In 1970, AMC increased its line of vehicles by purchasing the Kaiser-Jeep Corporation. However, despite the addition of Jeep and constant innovation, AMC was absorbed into the Chrysler Corporation in 1987. It is now AMC’s muscle cars that are usually remembered most. Some of the most popular (and collectible) AMC cars are

  • Rebel – A mid-size car produced from 1967-1970.
  • AMX – A two-seater produced from 1968-1970.
  • Javelin – A pony car produced from 1968-1970 and again from 1971-1974.
  • Gremlin – A two-door subcompact produced from 1970-1978.
  • Matador – A mid-size car produced from 1971-1978.

Showing and cruising in classic American muscle cars is a great way to celebrate the 4th of July holiday. Before you take your pony car out on the road, however, it is important to make sure your muscle car insurance protects you while attending parades or other classic car events.
