1/18 - 1970 AMC REBEL MACHINE


Muscle from an Unexpected Source 1970 AMC Rebel ôThe Machineö A One-Year Wonder By 1970 AMC was trying whatever it could to compete with the Big 3 of Ford, GM and Chrysler. After experimenting for a couple of years with muscle cars, they hired Hurst Products to develop what became ôThe Machineö. Part of AMC's mid-sized, mid-priced Rebel line, ôThe Machineö was built for speed. The 340hp. 4-barrel V-8 with a Hurst 4-speed gearbox was lightning quick off the line. Other standard features included high back bucket seats, functional Ram-Air hood scoop and dual exhausts. Precision Engineered to Original Specifications AMC introduced ôThe Machineö at the NHRA 1969 World Championships. Although they played down its speed, it had a lot of engine for a mid-sized car and easily held its own against the bigger name muscle cars of that era. Of the 1936 produced for $3475, the first 1000 were made in this special white with blue and red trim color scheme. After that you could order it in any of the Rebel colors. See more.

CHIPPERFIELD'S CIRCUS MODEL


Chipperfield's Circus was the name of a famous British family circus. The show toured Europe and the Far East. The dynasty goes back more than 300 years, making it one of the older family circus dynasties. During the 1960s circuses were extremely popular, so it was not surprising that during the period between 1960 and 1970 Corgi Toys should release ten Chipperfield’s Circus models, plus four Gift Sets. All were produced with the co-operation of the circus itself.These models proved to be highly collectable, so in 1994 Corgi Classics launched a new series of twelve Chipperfield’s Circus models. Again these proved extremely popular at the time, so futher additions were made. (Encyclopedia of Model Collecting)
