    You won't find a more fully-equipped AMC Matador. Did the listing mention the modified headlamps? I didn't see anything.

    One curious thing.......No power seat on this loaded example. I checked a few brochures on-line, and I couldn't find any mention that a power seat was even available on these..... The front seats DID recline though - that was a standard feature.

    The ad did not mention the non-factory front end.

    Ad also says power locks, but I don't see where that was a 1978 AMC factory option, either.

    That is probably the best looking Matador for that era I've ever seen. Normally with that front end (factory version) I'd walk on past, but at a car show i would stop and look at this one.
