1957 Rambler Custom Cross Country RedWhtBlk
Amazing car, in pristine condition! Notice the three tone color
combination and the color matched interior. The Cross Country started life
as a small wagon, Rambler American sized..but evolved into this sizeable
car! Very practical, very stylish! The Ambassador was the top of the
line, with an OHV V8.
Proof by Test (9 Things NOT to do with your Nash)
Ever thought about entering your vintage tub Nash in a dirt track
competition? Does it take serious impulse control to keep from racing your
Rambler Landau up Pikes Peak? Going slack jawed at the thought of going
airborne with your Airflyte?
Well, snap out of it! Do you really want to make that call to Hagerty's
afterward? (Would they even believe your lame excuses?) NO!
Instead, check out this ridiculously rare 1951 Nash film, and watch some
famous vintage maniacs destroy their Nashes all in the name of safety and
Look for previously unknown footage of Bill France, Sr., and Curtis Turner
racing their 1950 Ambassador in the Carrera Panamericana. You'll also see
actual Nash Airflytes driven by Herschel Buchanan in dirt track races.
But the rarest/coolest footage of all is at the end of the film: it's Lucky
Lee Lott and his Hell Drivers jumping Nashes, skidding Nashes, and wrecking
Nashes. (Hard to believe that this was a real Nash-sponsored film!)
It's the perfect Nash film for getting those destructive impulses out of
The Classic Cruiser Show #3 The 1957 Rambler Rebel
The 1957 AMC Rambler Rebel is often considered the first muscle car. WIth
it's light weight unitzed body and big 327 V8 engine it was the fastest
metal bodied car that year. The Rebel was loaded with options and special
trim. Only 1500 were built, making it a rare item today. This month the
Classic Cruiser Show highlights the first muscle car.

1960 Rambler Country Club Custom 4dr Hardtop CoralWht
A perfect family car! It has style, and economy with the ohv 6 cylinder
engine! There was always the Ambassador if you had to have a V8. Rambler
had been in the compact car business for years..and they still had the
diminutive Rambler American...so they were well equipped to do battle with
the new Falcon, Valiant and Corvair. However, there was only so much
compact car business to spread around, so suddenly it got a lot more
competitive out there!
1959 Rambler American Stationwagon Modified Wht KissimmeeAuction012014
You may remember that I videoed a similar wagon in some need of
restoration...well, this is a prime example of how it could turn out! The
engine has been replaced by a 5 liter Ford V8 and automatic transmission!
The modification isn't so apparent until you lift the hood! Amazingly well
done! This has to be a peppy car, but still a very practical one,
relatively lilght weight, and the ability to handle bulky cargo! If
American Motors had produced it this way...who knows how many they could
Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra had Rambler as a sponsor on their early TV
program on Philadelphia TV. Whiteman commissioned George Gershwin to
compose what would be called "Rhapsody in Blue"..and his orchestra
initially performed it with Gershwin at the piano. For those of you
interested, here are two performances:
The Classic Cruiser Show #4 The 1958 Rambler Ambassador
The 1958 Rambler Ambassador was the first car to come from American Motors
after the demise of the Nash and Hudson nameplates. Early in 1957 the AMC
management decided to stop designs on the big Nash and Hudson cars and
concentrate on the Rambler. The designers were told to make a big car out
of the standard Rambler. The Rambler was streached 9 inches ahead of the
firewall. The results were the Rambler Ambassador. With it's 327 V8 and new
tail fins it was an instant success. Eventually becoming the third selling
car in the country.

Show Winning 1963 AMC Rambler Classic 660
I thought you'd like a look at this ultra-clean 1963 AMC Rambler Classic
660. I mean, this thing is as close to a showroom new car as you'll find.
The paint, the interior, and the engine all look just like they did when
this car came out of the factory...maybe better. It's powered by the
original, numbers-matching drivetrain as well. This classic collector
automobile is a proven show winner and it's obvious why. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!
