Introducing a sensible alternative to the money-squeezing, insurance-strangling muscle cars of America. The Hornet SC/360. The Hornet SC/360 lists for only $2,663. Which is surprising when you consider what the September issue of Motor Trend had to say about it: The SC/360 is just a plain gas to drive. It has lightning quick per-formance... It handles like a dream, especially on the TransAm road course at Michigan Interna-tional Speedway where we had an opportunity to test it. A 360 CID V-8 engine with 245 horse-power is standard. So is a 3-on-the-floor, all synchromesh transmission. A heavy-duty clutch. D70 x 14 PolyglasTM tires. 14 x 6 mag style wheels. Space saver spare: Rally stripe. And individual reclining seats. To make it even gutsier, the SC/360 also comes with a long list of options. Among which you'll find a 4-barrel 360 V-8 that develops 285 horsepower. An all synchro 4-on-the-floor with Hurst shifter.. Ram air induction with hood scoop. 3.54 or 3.91 rear axle with Twin-Grip. Dual ex-hausts. White letter tires. Heavy-duty suspension. And a big tach. But even with the added cost of these options, the SC/360 ends up with a lower list price than most of its bigger, muscle-bound competitors. And because of its standard 12.5: 1 weight-to-power ratio, insurance on the SC/360 ends up lower, too. As a leading car magazine has said, 'The day of the heavy 400-cube, 400-horsepower supercar may be just about over.' 'Manufacturer's suggested retail price. Federal taxes in-cluded. State and local taxes, if any, destination charges excluded. If you had to compete with GM, Ford and Chrysler what would you do? American Motors
