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 Rambler Classic was an intermediate sized automobile that was built and
sold by American Motors Corporation AMC from model year 1961 to 1966.
The Classic took the place of the Rambler Six and Rambler Rebel V8 names,
which were retired at the end of the 1960 model year.
Introduced at first only as six passenger four door sedan and station wagon
versions, additional body styles were added with two door models available
as a post sedan and in 1964 as a sporty pillar less hardtop, as well as a
convertible for 1965 and 1966.
The Rambler Rebel name replaced Classic on AMCs completely redesigned large
line of cars in 1967, and for 1968 the Rebel was rechristened the AMC Rebel
as AMC began the process of phasing out the Rambler marque.
Throughout its life in the AMC model line up, the Classic was the high
volume seller for the independent automaker.
The 1965 model year Classics underwent a major redesign of the new platform
that was introduced in 1963; essentially the 1963-1964 design with a
rectilinear reskin similar to that of concurrent Ambassadors.
Fresh sheet metal design was applied to the original 112 in wheelbase and
195 in long integral body frame with only the roof, doors, and windshield
Unchanged was the suspension system including a torque tube with coil
springs with a Panhard rod.
The Rambler Classic was now shorter than as well as visually distinctive
from the Ambassador line, while still sharing the basic body structure from
the windshield back.
For the first time a convertible model was available in the 770 trim
version. The two door sedan was dropped from the 770 model lineup.

1967 Rambler American on the dyno
I was down in Collie for the Gazzanats and they had a Dyno down there, so I thought
I'd run the Rambler up on it and see if we couldn't bend another valve.
Thankfully everything held together and it made around 175hp at the rear
wheels, pretty much what I expected.

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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
