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.

Ride in my 1964 Rambler American 330
I drove it over to Mike's today and had the camera with me, so thought I'd
shoot a bit of footage. I wasn't tryin' hard to burn rubber, but it does
bark 'em nice..
Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!

1965 AMC Rambler American 220 - 343 V8 - Fully Restored

have a tough time finding a nicer Rambler than this one! It has been
upgraded to a 343CID V8 engine that has been bored .030 over and rebuilt
with all new parts only 2,000 miles ago. The Borg-Warner M12 automatic
transmission was rebuilt at the same time and is connected to a new Auburn
posi trac rear axle with 3.31 gears. New parts used in this two year old
restoration include cam, lifters, intake manifold, carburetor, aluminum
radiator, Flowmaster Exhaust, and
paint. Thanks for taking a look at it, I appreciate it!

The Big Rambler/AMC/Jeep Show, Kenosha, WI, 2007
On Saturday, July 28, 2007, four days after my leg cast came off, I was up
shooting video at the Rambler/AMC/Jeep show in Kenosha, WI, the largest
such show in the country.
Felt real good to be back on two legs again.
And before you start writing in with blood in your eyes, yes, I know the
Alliance pictured isn't an '83; convertibles didn't come out till a few
years later. This one was the only one at the show. Encores, Medallions,
Sportwagons and Premiers weren't there at all. You owners of '83 to '88
Renault cars should be better represented at next year's show; they were as
much a part of the AMC story as the Rambler and the Jeep.
1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte barnfind 1st time driven in over 44 years
Come along for a ride in this arcane behemoth !!! It feels so satisfying to
drive a car that has sat for so long and required so much work to bring
back to life and restore to driver status. This kind of job satisfaction
keeps me going. It's my life reward and passion. All brakes, fuel system,
engine and chassis repairs now complete. This old Airflyte now purrs like a
kitten and stops on a dime. Update: this car is a "Special Super", of
course, we all know it it super special....Haha, it has special handwritten
in pencil on the fire wall, but, I never thought much about it. Turns out
it has been positively identified as a very rare 1949 "Special Super", no
other 1949 special supers are known to exist....yet
1956 Nash Ambassador Special V8 Custom Sedan Test Drive
This is the 56 Nash Ambassador Special V8 four door Custom Sedan owned
Peter and Mary. This complete restoration of excellent quality and high
standards was recently completed by Peter. He purchased the car from the
original owner and drove it home to begin the extensive restoration. The
car was completely disassembled and every detail recorded, inspected and
This Nash is has the Nash V8 that was introduced mid-year. This engine of
190 H.P. and 250 C.I. design was changed in 1957 to 327 C.I. and used in
the Rambler Jeep and all other AMC cars up into the 60's.
This was the most luxurious Nash model produced in the 50's. YES, it has
the fold-down seats that make into a bed. Nash offered camping accessories
such as removable bug screens for the windows and a mattress to place over
the top of the seats for additional comfort.
Peter painstakingly restored the car true to the correct original offering
including the 3-tone paint colors in Ballerina Red, Boulevard Gray and
Frost White. This is a striking color combination that represents some of
the bold colors offered by some manufactures of the time. The interior is
also absolutely correct and restored using the Silver Leaf pattern cloth
that Peter was able to source from SMS Interior fabrics in Oregon.
The car is a pleasure to drive and has already been shown and won "Best of
Show" and "First in Class" in well noted Concour d'Elegance events
including the Grand National Nash Club 2012 meeting in Idaho.
The car is not a "trailer queen" at all, Peter and Mary drive the car to
shows and enjoy the drive and getting together with other car buffs
wherever they go.

1969 SC/Rambler/Hurst Hardtop (2) RWB DaySpdwy033012
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"?
