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.

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.
