With its V8 power, rarity, and a great triple-black presentation,
this 1969 AMC Rambler Rogue is a value-priced classic with plenty
of distinction. Plus, this coupe has a celebrity connection,
We love a good AMC because they represent a cool classic American.
And since there production figures were lower than The Big Three,
that makes for plenty of rare distinction on the classic car scene.
But before we dig into the numbers, it's time to appreciate this
coupe's style. This Rambler Rogue has a nice sense of intimidating
flair with its wide front end, full-length trim, and a machined
turned panel covering the rear. Plus, Mag-style wheels w/AMC center
caps have a great classic sporty style. This has been a California
car its entire life until last year, so the panels are quite nice.
It's all wrapped in the factory-correct black that was updated
around mid-life. And the black vinyl roof shows off the great
hardtop profile. There were only about 3,500 upper-level Rambler
Rogue hardtops produced in 1969, the historic Rambler name's final
year. And the way this is packaged, the rarity gets as low a one of
608! So you're going to love the paperwork that comes with the sale
on this one.
The black interior completes the ultra-desirable triple-black
(paint, roof, and interior) that this car has a had since it left
the factory a half-century ago. The textured split-bench looks
great; the trim is complete and bright; and a new white headliner
was just added to brighten up this darkness without taking away
from the cool setup. There are great factory-correct details like
the three-spoke rambler steering wheel and AM radio that's still
cranking out tunes. Even the air conditioning system is still on
display. And as you look over this whole interior, you're also
going to notice on the glovebox the signature of custom car legend
Chip Foose. That's because this Rambler was owned by Overhauin'
master Cherielynn Westrich.
The 290 cubic-inch V8 has a great presentation under the hood with
the tidy wires and good belts giving way to polished valve covers
and a bright metallic blue block. It has such a well-maintained and
quite correct presentation, that it's believed to be the original
motor. In fact, even the dual-barrel carb still has its AMC tag. It
fires up nicely with the right low note from the exhaust. And it's
easy to enjoy out one the road thanks to the three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and upgraded front disc brakes.
This is a special coupe, and so it comes with great paperwork,
including the original bill of sale, reproduction window sticker,
original warranty card, maintenance records, and much more. This is
a rare triple-black coupe with a story to tell. So don't miss out
on one of the most distinct and affordable classics around. Call
