Also feel free to Call anytime Nathan Wratislaw 406 544 6919 i got this info from Wikipedia 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.[1] 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.[1] 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.[31] 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."[31] 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.[36] 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.[31] 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.[37]

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 reliability. 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 your system.

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!

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.

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

Muscle Car Restorations
Safonovs Restorations





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 restored. 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"?





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
