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

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"?
Will it Run? Episode 7: 1964 Rambler 660 "Cross Country" Station Wagon
Cold War Motors just picked up this tidy 1964 Rambler 660 Wagon. It's got
the 196 c.i. ohv 6 cylinder engine and a 1 barrel carb. It's a 3 speed auto
with manual steering and brakes. Let's get it to go! The fuel pump was
shot from sitting so long, but otherwise the Rambler was complete. I think
the car has been off the road since the early 80's, judging by the bias
tires and old registrations. As per viewer requests, no more music! Thanks
for checking it out!

The Alfa Romeo Spider (105/115 series) is a roadster produced by the
Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1966 to 1993. Widely regarded as a
design classic, it remained in production for almost three decades with
only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. The three first series were
assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio
Canavese. The last Spider was produced in April 1993, it was also the last
rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo produced before Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione was
The original "Duetto" was in production from 1966--1967; replaced
in late 1967 by the 1750 Spider Veloce, powered by a 118 hp (88 kW) 1779 cc
1971 saw the Spider Veloce Giulia get a new, larger powerplant - a 1962 cc,
132 hp (98 kW) unit - and consequently the name was changed from 1750
Spider Veloce to 2000 Spider Veloce. 1974 is a very neat year because its
one of the last years of the old stainless bumpers. Very classic looking
Due to its round (or long) tail, the Series 1 Spider is sometimes
known by the nickname of "Osso di Seppia" - Italian for "cuttlefish bone".
This particular car was the model featured in the 1967 movie The Graduate,
driven by Ben, the character played by Dustin Hoffman
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!

This iteration of the Silvia (sold in United States and Canada as the
Datsun 200SX and in Mexico as the Datsun Sakura), available as a 2-door
hardtop coupe and a 3-door hatchback, was uniquely progressive in that it
was originally intended to feature a rotary engine, designed and built by
Nissan. The resulting unit was fairly unreliable, and forestalled
production. Ironically, it shared a chassis code with the also ill-fated
Mazda Cosmo, first Japanese production car to feature a rotary engine. The
car was redesigned shortly after it was released and the Wankel power plant
was replaced by a line of conventional piston engines based on the new
Z-series engine. These included the Z20 and the turbocharged and fuel injected Z18ET. In
USA/Canada the 200SX had the Z20E with H165 rear axle from 1979-1981. From
1982--1983, it had a Z22E engine with H190 rear axle. Vehicles with engines
over 2000cc are still considered "compact" vehicles under Japanese
regulations regarding engine size

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.
