Late Night What If: Matador Cassini Sedan and Barcelona Brougham Mark II

So, are you sick of the AMC Matador coupe? Too bad, because I had to share this would-be Matador sedan, posted to Jim Grey’s Matador COAL writeup, in the comments. For those of you who missed it, CC regular Tim B created this 1975 Matador Cassini Edition. Looks awfully production-ready to me. I have to admit, I kind of like it. But wait, there’s more!

In the Barcelona II commercial post, I mentioned that the ’77-’78 Barcelonas must have had every Brougham styling cue, except for opera lamps. Tim reminded us all that it also needed a fake Rolls-Royce grille, and obliged with this photoshopped proposal. Just the thing for Huggy Bear to drive in Starsky & Hutch, don’t you think? The fake Lucas headlights are very Broughamy, but I wonder what it would look like with hidden headlights? Darn, there’s another Brougham cue the factory Barcelona IIs were missing!

Thanks Tim, for sharing these modified Matadors. Nice job! And for all of you CCers who can’t stand these Matador coupes, this is the last post for a while, I promise!
