1967 AMC Rebel 770 290 from North America
Vacuum windshield wiper pump died.
Turn signal cancel switch died.
Engine needed rebuilding.
Brake light switch died.
A tie-rod wore out.
Door hinge bushings have worn out.
This car has got to be the most reliable car I have ever owned. It is comfortable to drive and ride in. The 290V8 engine is a little anemic, but, it's a 4 door that was made for comfort and dependability.
It is extremely roomy and even after 33 years, the power steering and power brakes are very smooth and easily operated.
The gas mileage is a little poor compared to today's 4cyl cars, but, I can pull my sail boat with it which I cannot do with our Toyota.
The car seems indestructible and has gotten me through the worst snow and mud conditions on some really bad back roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
