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
1966 Rambler Rogue Sports Hardtop Commercial - Featuring Phillip Bruns
The Rogue was the two door hard top sporty version of the Rambler American.
It recieved a V8 engine in 1968. But AMC really should have put one in
it in 1964 or 65 when the Mustang came out. At the time...the
Rogue could have been a very viable alternative to the Popular Mustang. It was a significantly
better car than the Plymouth Valiant or Ford Falcon. AMC regularly
produced 100 thousands of these Rambler styled cars in the 1960's among
other models they produced.

1958 RAMBLER AMERICAN - A BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE AMC MODEL
The Rambler car product was dropped in 1955 but then AMC President George
Romney revived the Rambler, albiet small differences like enlarged wheel
openings, the name American, and a new grille. Now all models made by AMC
were grouped under the Rambler name except for the Nash Metropolitans.
While the Rambler American was the at the lower end of AMC products, it was
followed by the Rebel, followed at the top by the Rambler Ambassador.
Ramblers came only in a 2-door model but an upgrade is he Super. The
Rambler resembles in a smaller scale the full size bathtub Nash of the
early fifties. Even with it's bulbous unibody shape, the Rambler American
came along at the right time when American suffered through a recession,
the mpg usage was good, and more gas pinching imports were flooding the
market. 31,000 Rambler Americans were built in a reduced model year making
the Rambler 7th place in sales. Not bad for a revived car. The only
engine available for the American was an L-head, 195 cid / 90 hp., and cost
around $1,789. Looking over this red cream puff you can see the
resemblance of the prior American and the parent car Nash. The Uniscope
speedometer still shows on the dash and an austere interior looks very good
for it's age. Thanks very mcuh for viewing this 1958 Rambler American.
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.
Will it Run? Episode 7: 1964 Rambler 660 "Cross Country" Station Wagon
Cold War Motors just picked up this tidy 1964 Rambler 660 Wagon. It's got
the 196 c.i. ohv 6 cylinder engine and a 1 barrel carb. It's a 3 speed auto
with manual steering and brakes. Let's get it to go! The fuel pump was
shot from sitting so long, but otherwise the Rambler was complete. I think
the car has been off the road since the early 80's, judging by the bias
tires and old registrations. As per viewer requests, no more music! Thanks
for checking it out!
1969 SC Rambler.
AMC wanted even more of a piece of the action after it saw the success of
the released for 1968 Javelin and AMX models. The little Rambler 2-door
sedans were in their last year of production, so why not send them off by
following the old recipe of stuffing in the largest engine you have in your
fold under the hood. The result: A 100-plus mile per hour quarter mile
car right off the showroom floor. 390 V-8, Borg-Warner 4-speed manual
transmission shifted via a Hurst shifter. 3.54 ratio 'Twin-Grip'
differential in conjunction with a heavy duty 'anti-hop' rear suspension is
what got the power to the ground. Solid disc brake rotors with 4-piston
calipers stopped the car. I think there were only a couple of options
available for these cars. One of them was an AM radio. Just over 1500 of
these were made. 1200 or so had the wild paint scheme, and the rest had
graphic stripes, also in the red, white and blue motifs. AMC had one more
kick at the can in 1971 with the Hornet SC 360. But that is another
