  • 1967 AMC AMX-III Concept

    The AMX III, not to be confused with the better-known AMX/3, was essentially a Javelin station wagon. First shown at the Chicago Auto Show in February 1967, its styling presages the Hornet Sportabout. Source: www.amxfiles.com Images: www.shorey.net

  • 1967 AMC Amitron Concept Car

    With the rest of the automotive industry caught up in a tail-finned frenzy of luxurious comfort, AMC anticipated the oil crisis ahead and made a quirky electric microcar: the Amitron concept. But it proved too far ahead of its time to make production… With wheels literally at each corner, AMC’s mini-wedge afforded passengers just as much interior space as many of the doorstop-shaped concepts of the era, despite being 350mm shorter than today’s Smart car. The wide track that formed part of the Amitron’s near-square footprint allowed three occupants to sit side-by-side with inadequate comfort – and the seats were filled with air so they could be deflated when vacant, increasing loading space. Powering the Amitron was a set of lithium-nickel-fluoride batteries with a range far beyond lead-acid units of the same size; another pioneering feature was the first application of regenerative braking technology. The Amitron laid down principles that looked to represent the future of urban travel, but it was too advanced for its good – even when given a second debut, wearing new colors, a decade later. With subtle styling changes, the Amitron was shown again as the Electron in 1977 as part of AMC's Concept 80 show, featuring four other forward-looking prototypes.

  • 1967 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale Prototipo

    The Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is an extremely rare road car built by Alfa Romeo of Italy. Only 18 are reported to have been made. The Stradale, first built in 1967, was based on the Autodelta Alfa Romeo T33 racing car. The car, designed by Franco Scaglione, and built by Carrozzeria Marazzi, made its debut at the 1967 Turin Motorshow. Built in an attempt by Alfa to make some of its racing technology available to the public, it was the most expensive automobile for sale to the public in 1968 at US$17,000. The Stradale is believed to be the first production vehicle to feature dihedral doors, also known as butterfly doors. Other vehicles which feature doors of this nature include the Toyota Sera, McLaren F1, Ferrari Enzo and the Saleen S7. The Stradale also features windows which seamlessly curve upward into the "roof" of the vehicle. Source: Wikipedia Images: shorey; supercars
