1960 AMC rambler american Additional Info:

This sale is for a 1960 Rambler American wagon. This is a very nice project car. It is a very nice start on a baby Rambler wagon. These little cars are on fire! One of the most desired wagons to build. Here is your chance for a nice one to do your way. No need to pay what others are asking for theirs. Build your own and your way. It has a state of Fla. inspection sticker from 1978. It is extremely dry and to my knowledge has only been in Ohio a short time so not an Ohio born and raised car. Although has surface rust it is solid where it needs to be. The floors do show rust which may clean up or you could just as easily replace as it is mostly all flat.
This baby Rambler still has it's original paint and no signs of previous bondo or bodywork. You can see what it needs and nothing has been covered up. There is surface rust as can be seen and the worst can be seen on the top of the passenger fender. spots on the hood lower fenders and some in the tire pan under the hatch cover, The front sub structure is solid. I have extra parts including an extra bumper as shown. I just installed NOS tail lights. There is a clear Ohio title. I have a buy it now price for those that can't wait for the sale to end and do have a reasonable reserve. Much less then I have invested.
**The Drag wheels pictured are NOT part of the sale and will come with rollers**
This little guy is ready for your engine and transmission. I have a 258, 304, 360 and 401 American Motors engines I would sell extra to make it interesting.
Please no GM, motor in this. There are too many of those already. There really is an alternative to a boring Chevy motor in an AMC Rambler. If you are after power something to consider is a stock 390 will pull the front wheels in an AMX, what do you think one would do in this Rambler? AMC motors can make an easy 500+ horsepower today.
Aluminum heads and blocks are now available as well as fuel injection. Auto transmission choices Turbo 400 as used in the Jeep Wagoneer. 904/727 as used in the Matador and Javelin. Manual Borg Warner T10's were used in AMX and Javelin. In 79 the 304 Spirit used a Ford sourced 4 speed and could be swapped easy with the Mustang GT T5 five speed. There are PG adapters if you want a two speed
To sum it up. This is a non running project car that will require a restoration.
Shipping is your responsibility. I have a shipping broker if you don't.
Lastly as most of you know who follow me know have had and been treated for cancer and roughly eight months out of treatment. I am doing good so far. I bought this to build myself but now I have a different direction and new priorities so I and am scaling down. I have more cars I will be listing soon.
