List of AMC legacy midsize and large cars

The history and legacy of cars of American Motors heritage is a somewhat tangled web of various car nameplates and brands, but an interesting one spanning the Nash Ambassador to the Eagle Premier. The definition of a midsize or fullsize vary by era, with AMC often putting the same size car for both slots, and "large" automobiles of some eras being smaller than "midsize" cars of other eras during periods of downsizing and size inflation.

Each car is given with manufacturer brand, nameplate, years of production, comparable sized competition, and notes.
