The Rambler American is an automobile manufactured by the American Motors
Corporation (AMC) between 1958 and 1969. The American was the second
incarnation of AMC's forerunner Nash Motors second-generation Rambler
compact that was sold under the Nash and Hudson Motors marques from 1954
The American can be classified in three distinct generations: 1958 to 1960,
1961 to 1963, and 1964 to 1969. During the entire length of its production,
the car was sold under the Rambler brand name, and was the last Rambler
automobile manufactured for the Canadian and United States markets.
The genesis of the Rambler American began when AMC President George
W. Romney saw that AMC was in need of a small compact during the Recession
of 1958. Romney also wanted to build momentum in AMC's challenge to the
domestic Big Three automakers by adding a third car line.
The first proposals were to modify AMC's captive import by
extending the Metropolitan with a station wagon type roof design to make
room for four passengers. However the 85-inch (2,159 mm) wheelbase of
the Met severely limited the necessary interior room. On the other hand,
the company had retained the tooling from its 1955 model Rambler. The old
model's 100-inch (2,540 mm) wheelbase fit between its bigger family-sized
108-inch (2,743 mm) wheelbase Ramblers and the small import. The old design
could be slightly modified and then used for the basis of the "new"
American Motors' financial condition meant it could not afford to develop
an entirely new model. The reintroduction of the old model leveraged the
Rambler's renown for fuel economy and wins in the Mobil Economy Runs, with
the consumer's need for a smaller and more efficient alternative to the
standard-sized cars that were marketed by the domestic Big Three (General
Motors, Ford, and Chrysler) at that time.
One of the muscle car era "most visually arresting examples" was a special
model was produced during 1969 in collaboration with Hurst Performance, the
Hurst SC/Rambler. With 1,512 built, it was probably the only production
model made and promoted for a specific drag racing class, the National Hot
Rod Association (NHRA) F/Stock class.
The SC/Rambler "became one of the most potent cars of its time, throwing
down quarter-mile times that only Hemis and Cobra Jets had previously
touched." A true muscle car with zero options and a suggested retail
price(MSRP) of less than US$3,000, it would take down some much more
The SC/Rambler has a strong collector following, with websites, clubs, and
a registry. The SC/Rambler has become a popular muscle car to replicate
because of the ease of installing a powerful AMC V8 drivetrain into one of
the large number of inexpensive 1966 through 1969 Rambler Americans. To
identify a true SC/Rambler, the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) must
have the letter M in the third digit and the engine code of X as the
1969 AMC AMX 390 V8 Four Speed Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 AMC AMX. The
exterior is coated in a gloss red, with silver stripes running the length
of the vehicle. The interior is a rare option Platinum vinyl. Under the
hood, you will find a 390 CID V8 backed by 4-spd manual transmission. The
engine offers a mild camshaft, forged pistons, roller rockers, and has been
balanced. The rear end is a 3.54 posi grip. Other options include: AM/FM
Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl
Interior, and Radial Tires. There were no short cuts taken on this
restoration. Many of the parts used are NOS and the mileage since rebuild
is just 325 miles! Thanks for taking a look!

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a
great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog
company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's
"Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something
a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a
small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had
never seen anything like it.
This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst
to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government
regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car
advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a
picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist
Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John
Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.
the time has come for the pacer to go down the road but not befor i give it

1978 AMC Pacer
The AMC Pacer is a two-door compact automobile that was produced in the
United States by the American Motors Corporation between 1975 and 1980.
Design work began in 1971. The rounded shape and large glass area were
unusual compared with the three-box designs of the era.
The Pacer's width is equal to full-sized domestic vehicles at the time, and
this unique design feature was promoted by AMC as "the first wide small
car." The Pacer was the first modern mass-produced, U.S. automobile
design using the cab forward concept.
The Pacer's rounded and aerodynamic "jellybean" styling has made it an icon
of the 1970s. The May 1976 issue of Car and Driver dubbed it "The Flying
Fishbowl", and it was also described as "the seventies answer to George
Jetson's mode of transportation at a time when "Detroit was still rolling
out boat-sized gas guzzlers.
1976 AMC Pacer Test Drive | AutoMoments Time Warp
The car world loves to hate the Pacer, but how many of those people have
actually driven one? After producing an entire documentary about the car,
we decided to test one for ourselves. While far from perfect, we found the
Pacer to not be nearly as bad as people claim. In fact, this strangle
little car is pretty cool in it's own weird sort of way.
401 AMC Pacer Vs 440 AMC Pacer
My 1978 Pacer (black one) with a built AMC 401 and 5-speed manual
transmission versus a 1976 Pacer with a Mopar 440 with a 3-speed auto at
Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN on June, 12 2009 as part of the 2009 Hot Rod
Power Tour. My dad was driving in this run, and unfortunately could not get
the rear tires to hook up. The Red White and Blue Pacer hooked up, and thus
the result. Winner: Red White and Blue Pacer with a firstname.lastname@example.org followed
by our car with a email@example.com. Well work on the car, find a way to get her
to hook up, and well be back again. 13s shouldnt be a problem and itll
give us something to aspire to. Also, please excuse the sub-fanatics level
of camera work...this was me behind the camera as Dan did not come with me
on the Power Tour.
