AMC Rambler American Update
I went over to Vance's house to check the progress on the Rambler. He has
the turbo unit roughted in and the V8
401 is in place. The color sanding and buffing has been started.
Hopefully the car will be completed this summer.

Not only is it rare to see one of these Scramblers, but to see two at the
same time is a real treat! 390 cubic inch engine with manual transmission
would really give these cars real scoot! AMC was very aware of the youth
market, as demonstrated by their Javelins and AMXs. This was another of
their performance cars...it had been referred to earlier as the Rambler
American compact. The red, white and blue color combinations is a stroke
of genius..what colors better exemplify "American"?
1959 AMC Super Rambler 2 Door Wagon - 0027-ndy - Gateway Classic Cars Indianapolis
For sale is a true head turner and extremely well built, custom, 1959 AMC
Rambler American Super Wagon. This is one ride you can drive and are not
likely to run into another one. This specific wagon underwent a
nut-and-bolt restoration just 2000 miles ago. The 2000 miles gave plenty of
time to work out the bugs because this is no average wagon. Under the hood
is a 5.3L LS1 truck engine and a 4L60E automatic transmission. The LS1 came
out of a donor truck and is stock with 22,000 miles, 20,000 at the time of
installation. The powerful V8 offers Sanderson ceramic coated headers. The
front end is comprised of a Mustang II with front disc brakes,
tubular A-arms, dropped spindles, QA1 coil overs, front sway bar and powder
coated 4 bar rear suspension. The rear end is an 8" Ford with 3.40 gears.
The Exhaust is comprised of 2 1/2"
stainless with stainless FlowMaster mufflers. Other options include: AC,
AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Seat, Tilt
Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Spare Tire, Radial Tires, and
Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. Everything on this car was either refurbished or
rebuilt. The exterior is professionally done in Dupont Speck Master Green
and a black top. All the paint is show quality and is base coat/clear coat.
Due to the Rambler's thorough restoration, the car can be driven regularly
and effortlessly. The AMC can get 22-25 MPG!!! Not too bad for a custom hot
rod. If you are looking for a show car, custom street rod, or a daily
driver that stands out amongst the pack please look no further. To view the
1959 AMC American Super Wagon in greater detail, including a video, please

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.
