Yat Ming did a terrific release of the stylish and strong AMC Machine from the the

height of the American muscle car in 1970. Here are a number of photographs of it in red and also a white version.

IXO/Altaya did a nice job on their 1:43 example; great value for the money IMO.  Still available too.

HA! A short My Take  or  a My Take short  ...either way, I like it.  Just a few days ago I commented on how great IXO/Altaya models are.....and the quite prolific too. It seems they've replicated every vehicle from every continent.  Really, a terrific bang-for-the-buck.

I love the model. It was a great image choice of an underappreciated muscle car. The only real omission I saw was the red, white and blue under the grill.

I knew you added detail to your "Machine"  but didn't realize the painted grill was even necessary for authenticity. It makes quite a difference; you did an A+ job!  I'd swear it's factory.

@rich-sufficool .... yeah, as I looked at your beautiful handy work I re-checked John's post.  Again, you did a perfect job; it looks terrific. I love it when collectors take time to reproduce enhancements that add accuracy. 😎

Ahhh, the '60s and the early '70s!  Virtually all of the car brands in the Big 4 had pony and/or muscle cars!  It was a glorious time, for sure!  AMC, the red-headed stepchild of the Big 4 was not to be ignored as they, too, had their own muscle/pony versions!  And glorious they were too!  These are very nice examples.  The Machine was just too cool!

@marty-johnson

AMX and Javelin are a bit under rated from what I see / know. 

Nothing wrong with either in my book !  

They're dayum goodlooking cars and not 'slouches' in the performance department.

@100ford2003 I agree completely!  IMO, it's the VERY best AMC AMX Ertl/Autoworld ever did; it just looks "so right!" 

AMX 2
AMX 4
AMX 6
AMX 8

I always liked the AMX and Javelin but for some reason never considered shopping for one in '74.  

I was focused on a '70-'71 Z-28 or Trans-Am. 

I ended up with a '70 T-A.
