American Motors Corporation was formed in 1954 with the merger of Nash-Kelvinator and Hudson Motors. AMC became known for cars that slotted into market segments ignored by the Big Three - namely compacts such as the Rambler. By the late 1960s AMC was churning out some serious muscle with the Marlin, Javelin and ultra-short wheelbase AMX. Muscle car engines offered were the 343, 390 & 401 cubic inch V8s. In 1971 Roger Penske racing won the Trams Am championship with Mark Donohue behind the wheel - check out the print ads below for the Trans Am winning Javelins.
