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.

Proof by Test (9 Things NOT to do with your Nash)
Ever thought about entering your vintage tub Nash in a dirt track
competition? Does it take serious impulse control to keep from racing your
Rambler Landau up Pikes Peak? Going slack jawed at the thought of going
airborne with your Airflyte?
Well, snap out of it! Do you really want to make that call to Hagerty's
afterward? (Would they even believe your lame excuses?) NO!
Instead, check out this ridiculously rare 1951 Nash film, and watch some
famous vintage maniacs destroy their Nashes all in the name of safety and
Look for previously unknown footage of Bill France, Sr., and Curtis Turner
racing their 1950 Ambassador in the Carrera Panamericana. You'll also see
actual Nash Airflytes driven by Herschel Buchanan in dirt track races.
But the rarest/coolest footage of all is at the end of the film: it's Lucky
Lee Lott and his Hell Drivers jumping Nashes, skidding Nashes, and wrecking
Nashes. (Hard to believe that this was a real Nash-sponsored film!)
It's the perfect Nash film for getting those destructive impulses out of
Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.

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
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

My 1969 AMC Hurst SC/Rambler burnout video...

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
Unusual Custom 1966 AMC Rambler 770 Utility Vehicle
I thought you might like a look at this very unique, custom 1966 Rambler
770. They built a custom pickup bed into the back of the car, much like a
Ranchero or an El Camino. This is truly a one-of-a-kind vehicle. It's
powered by the original 232 Straight Six, backed by a 3 spd automatic.
It's riding on steel wheels, with hubcaps and whitewalls. They did a
pretty nice job of blending the pickup bed into the rest of the vehicle.
It's not a hack job, like some that I've seen. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for watching!
