Hemmings Find of the Day – 1976 AMC Matador

Published in

Original and unrestored 1976 AMC Matador for sale on From the seller’s description:

1 owner, 44,577 original miles, Original Autumn Red Exterior on Black plaid interior, with landau roof.

Up for sale is another one of the cars out of my collection that I have acquired over the years, my 1976 AMC Matador. This is a car that in the future I will probably regret selling, but I recently acquired another car that I’ve been after for a long time so sadly I must part ways with my Matador, one of my personal favorites.

I happened upon the car at an estate sale a couple hours from my home here in South Dakota. From my understanding of the story, the car was special ordered new by the couple whose estate it belonged to after years of saving, and that it had been pampered and garaged for the entirety of their ownership.

From my time owning the car and hopefully from what the pictures get across, that was every bit the truth and more. I have owned a lot of AMC’s over the years and I don’t remember the last time a saw a Matador that looked at good as this one does. They just aren’t around anymore, no one that bought these new thought to keep them, aside from the original owners of this car apparently.

The condition is every bit as nice as the day it rolled off the dealership lot, with only a one very minor flaw that I can see. There are some very minor paint chips on the driver side, top inner side fender support, but nothing I would ever consider fixing as this car has had no paint work at all from what I can see.
