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.

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.
