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 and 1955.
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.
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 vaunted cars.[
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 seventh digit.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #71: 1969 Hurst SC/Rambler
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - The American Motors Corporation was
known for building reliable, lower-priced cars targeted towards families
and those seeking basic transportation. But when you combine a
lightweight economy car with a potent V8, you have the recipe for an
outstanding performer. This was the case with the 1969 Hurst SC/Rambler,
a car built in conjunction with Hurst Performance to be a drag strip terror
and look cool doing it! The SC/Rambler boasted a 315 HP 390 cube V8, a
T10 4-speed, 3.54:1 gears, and other performance tricks like a complete
lack of options, subframe connectors, rolled fender lips, staggered shocks,
and Thrush mufflers. This little Super Car rocked and advertised 14.2 in
the quarter @ 100+ mph, all for less than $3000.00. Quite a package.
