I’m old enough to remember when the AMC Matador Coupe was sold new. I was 13 when the landau Barcelona II version was introduced. I can recall ruminating for hours on whether the original profile or the opera-windowed version was more desirable, but I was never quite able to decide. Frankly, I was utterly conflicted about it even as an eighth grader. I found it undeniably odd, peculiar, ill-proportioned—and yet somewhat irresistible. I still do. This extremely clean, lightly modded Barcelona coupe that sold for $18,500 on Ebay last month shifts the balance a little bit more toward the irresistible side.
