Vehicle Description

This 1959 AMC Rambler American is one of the most affordable and distinctive ways to enjoy classic motoring. With a unique style, subtle two-tone appearance, and plenty of room for everyone, you know this is a great way to enjoy the world of vintage cars.

The first-generation Rambler American is one of the most unique stories of the 1950s. AMC was looking to get a stronghold in the smaller car market, and so they made an evolution from Nash's Rambler. This is important, because famed Italian automotive designer Pininfarina had a hand in that car. So while AMC evolved that design, there has always been a handsomeness about these with body lines that were unique for an American car. The light blue paint sets the tone for a pleasant classic. The finish is not perfect, and so the value price leaves room for any work or paint you may want to do. But this one already has that unique appeal the comes from a cool/classic package. It's in the way the whitewall tires coordinate with the white roof; the Fiat-like look of the front end; and there's a color-matched continental kit on the rear to make sure this Rambler even ends in style.

The interior continues the sea of blue with well-done tones on the seats, door panels, carpeting, and dash. Two rows of wide benches are quite accommodating, especially with the comfy velour cloth inserts for where you sit. While this was considered to be a smaller car by 1950s standards, today that still leaves good room for family and friends. There are even roll-down rear windows to keep everyone comfortable. This is done to be a nostalgic classic, so you get the factory dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the original gauge package. Even the factory AM radio is still cranking out tunes!

You see more of this car's classic presentation under the hood. The 196 cubic-inch inline six has the feeling of correctness from the bold red block to the air topper w/decal. It fires up readily and even has a hint of a fun exhaust note. Plus, the correct three-speed automatic transmission shifts with the kind of confidence that really lets you enjoy this Rambler.

This is the cool classic 1950s machine that offers real distinction while continuing the Rambler's tradition of a value price. So you know this is the kind of car you want to get your hands on right now.
