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
