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.

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!

1976 AMC Pacer Test Drive | AutoMoments Time Warp
The car world loves to hate the Pacer, but how many of those people have actually driven one? After producing an entire documentary about the car, we decided to test one for ourselves. While far from perfect, we found the Pacer to not be nearly as bad as people claim. In fact, this strangle little car is pretty cool in it's own weird sort of way.





1963 AMC Rambler American 440h startup and walkaround
Bought this as a project in 2009. Cosmetics were well preserved but the 195.6 engine needed work and the transmission was trashed. Found a NOS Borg/Warner T-96 with overdrive from AMCrazy that allowed me to get the car back on the road. 63k orig miles. Just a quick start and walk around. I'll post a video of a drive in it soon. 195.6 ci OHV 2bbl, T-96 3 speed and optional R10 overdrive. Not fast, but fun to drive.

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.

1963 AMC Rambler American 440 H
From 1963, this was the last year for the old style Nash Rambler type of Rambler Americans. In 1964, they would be basically restyled. These were great little cars and this hardtop actually is very stylish. The Ford Mustang came out in 64. Had this car been a bit lower and rakish looking, it might hvae sold more. In 1960, AMC Rambler was the third best selling brand of car in the USA, behind Ford and Chevy. Fourth in 1963. This was filmed in California and you may recognise the location from many movies and tv shows. I swear, a monster should come out from behing the rock any second or a space ship should land. Years later in 1967, AMC would film the Noah's Arch AMC Ambassador Wagon commercial on the very same site. That commercial can be seen on youtube as well.

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]
