1958 RAMBLER AMERICAN - A BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE AMC MODEL
The Rambler car product was dropped in 1955 but then AMC President George
Romney revived the Rambler, albiet small differences like enlarged wheel
openings, the name American, and a new grille. Now all models made by AMC
were grouped under the Rambler name except for the Nash Metropolitans.
While the Rambler American was the at the lower end of AMC products, it was
followed by the Rebel, followed at the top by the Rambler Ambassador.
Ramblers came only in a 2-door model but an upgrade is he Super. The
Rambler resembles in a smaller scale the full size bathtub Nash of the
early fifties. Even with it's bulbous unibody shape, the Rambler American
came along at the right time when American suffered through a recession,
the mpg usage was good, and more gas pinching imports were flooding the
market. 31,000 Rambler Americans were built in a reduced model year making
the Rambler 7th place in sales. Not bad for a revived car. The only
engine available for the American was an L-head, 195 cid / 90 hp., and cost
around $1,789. Looking over this red cream puff you can see the
resemblance of the prior American and the parent car Nash. The Uniscope
speedometer still shows on the dash and an austere interior looks very good
for it's age. Thanks very mcuh for viewing this 1958 Rambler American.

track tapes that were included with the car. )
AMC Rambler American Update
I went over to Vance's house to check the progress on the Rambler. He has
the turbo unit roughted in and the V8
401 is in place. The color sanding and buffing has been started.
Hopefully the car will be completed this summer.
1962 Rambler Classic
Quite rusty. Such a shame since the car seems to run well and the upper
body isn't half bad.

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

1965 RAMBLER AMERICAN 220 -- CHEAP WHEELS
The Rambler American 220 2-door is not only inexpensive transportation but
was also stingy with gas consumption. This 220 cost around $1,979 and had
a mpg rating around 22 which was good back in the day. In fact, the
Rambler American got high marks for economy in the Mobilgas Economy Run and
the Pure Oil Perfomance Trials. The American line had not only the 220 but
the 330, 440 and came in 2-door, 4-door sedans, a convertible, wagon, and
hardtop coupes. Above the American is the Classic, Classic 550, Classic
660, and at the top, Classic 770. The other AMC models are the Marlin and
Ambassador. The only engine meant for the 220 is an L-head 6, 195 cid with
90 bhp. This 220 shown here is a real beauty. Great paint color, tasteful
custom pinstripping, interior in the basic black which was very popular in
the sixties. What we have here is cheap transportation in cost and in fuel
efficiency. Thanks very much for viewing this 1965 Rambler American 220.
