We know what you’re thinking. Another Matador? What on earth did the husband of Gene Tierney and official designer for first lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s wardrobe have to do with this mighty 1974 AMC Matador? Everything. Cassini lent a further touch of class to the already elegant Matador. The designer Matador was a pre-emptive strike against the future Bill Blass edition Lincoln LTD, and the rapidly approaching assault of the Ricardo Montalban-endorsed Chrysler Cordoba. We’re all for a return of designer-edition cars. Factory-installed custom appointments are far superior to a Chevrolet Caprice Classic wrapped in Louis Vuitton vinyl and shod with a set of 30-inch Asantis. While the Dolce & Gabbana Chevrolet Aveo may have fallen victim to the new economy, the dream of Kenosha-built Cassini AMC Matador opulence is right here, right now. From the seller’s description:

1974 AMC Matador Oleg Cassini two-door sport coupe, at 4,270 miles, most probably the lowest-mile Matador around! Finished in Snow White with a Black vinyl canopy roof, luxurious black cloth seat trim & copper-colored carpeting, both exclusive to the Oleg Cassini model. Powered by the 304 V-8 motor with three-speed automatic transmission, power steering and brakes and factory A/C. The miles say it all, they just don’t come any nicer! Offered at $16,750.
