AMC cars at CNS?
 
If my memory is correct, I seem to remember somebody running and AMC car at CNS, I do not recall the number, but I think it was red/white/blue. As to the time period I would say it is 1966-1974.

I'm not sure but the car may have been a 1957(?) Rebel with a 327 V-8.

I wonder how well a 1970 AMC Rebel would have done.

The only AMC I saw at CNS was Chuck Bosselman's Hornet, but I didn't get there very often. Chuck is from Grand Island, NE and ran with IMCA back in the 70's. I heard that Wayne Stallsworth bought the car, but I don't know for sure. Maybe, the red Javelin ran there. I think is was John Balzano's.

Larry Ginardi had a Rambler (AMC) I drove it to a 3rd place in the championship standings in the 80's
It had gobs of torque, had to feather it coming off the corners or it would fry the tires even on the dirt.

Thanks for jogging my memory, I remember seeing a picture of that car. I also remember when Larry started racing at CNS, he had been helping Jack Capps (CARC #38) at Lakeside when Bob Couch and Jim Binkley told him about Gene Hefley's CNS, Larry's first car was a '56 Chevy hard top #3, Bob and Jim were running a '54 Buick hardtop. Larry, Bob and Jim helped me why my cars when I started racing at CNS, they were good guys and great friends. Bob Couch passed away in the mid 70's, I saw Jim Binkley in 2001, and I lost track of Larry after he moved transmission shop that was on Sheridan Boulevard a few blocks south of 64th Avenue. I was thinking that someone had told me that Larry passed away, or it was one of his family members, maybe it was Suzzy his wife, not sure, you know the memory works.

Mark Donahue ran a red white and blue #16 AMC Javalin, up and down the west coast 74 and 75, Bobby allison borrowed it at riverside 75, and I dont think he gave it back. It was just before the 75 daytona 500, Possibly owned by Penski. It was a long time ago

Digging up an old thread...we ran a AMC in the bomber class in the late 80's when CNS was dirt and the same car the first year it was paved, Larry helped me out with the engine build and I even ran the cam in it from one of his late models.

There will be another AMC out there again...hopefully later in the 2019 season,
