It was in this year that Motor Trend Magazine selected the entire line of American Motors automobiles for its coveted "Car Of The Year" award. 

Motor Trend was particularly impressed with AMC's line of full-sized automobiles, which had been completely restyled for 1963. 

Also, a sporty new floor-shift overdrive transmission, featuring a center console with "Twin-Stick" shifting (one lever for the 3-speed and one for the overdrive), was introduced this year. 

Motor Trend's praise was not the only accolade that AMC received in 1963: the greatest award of all came from buyers of AMC cars. Over 464,000 American Motors cars were sold in that year -- an all-time high for American Motors Corporation sales.
