AMC presents the best, and the most significant, Sports Sedans of all time.
With our recent focus on the burgeoning Group U Historic Sports Sedan scene, and some of the magnifi cently restored old beasts we are beginning to see returning to the track, a top 25 list of Sports Sedans is long overdue. But narrowing it down to just 25 cars from the broad church that is Sports Sedans over the past half century – which is how long they’ve been around – was no easy task. W e’ve listed the category’s heavy hitters and the high achievers. W e’ve also recognised those which either set new standards for others to f ollow, or which came up with an initial idea which others then went on to perfect. And others which maybe weren’t all that successful, and which maybe didn’t break any new technical ground, but were sim ply too cool to leave out. There are, we must concede, some legendary machines that are conspicuous by their absence from this list. We know which ones we’d have liked to also include; we’d love to h ear yours, too. Also tell us which car you consider to be the greatest.
Bob Jane Chev Monza
By the time the Monza was ready to race, Jane was stepping backfrom driving. In his place, Peter Brock would have some legendary battles in it with Alan Jones’ 935 Porsche, and then Allan Grice drove it to victory in the 1984 Australian GT/SS title. It also ran in Sandown’s World Sportscar race. Then Bryan Thomson bought it and refashioned it into a Toyota Supra. Sold to Des Wall, it survives in Supra-Chev form today. See AMC #62 for more.
