In 67 when Hayden Proffitt first debuted his Rambler Rebel Funny Car, everybody took one look and then had a big laugh, after all, whoever heard of American Motors being in racing?
After his successful 67 outing  with the Rebel, Grant Industries contracted Logghe Chassis to fabricate the tubes for 68 version. the power plant was supplied by a 438ci American Motors engine with a B&M Turbo Hydro trans.
We can see how AMC was trying to capture the youth Muscle Car market, by how much the Rebel resembles a Plymouth "Roadrunner."
Seen here is this image, we see Hayden at twilight as he launches the Rebel at the famed Texas Drag  Strip, "Green Valley Raceway."
