1971 American Motors Ambassador. Top-of-the-line Brougham model. Full load with Air Conditioning.
Only 50,000 original miles!!!
Not 150,000. Documented original mileage of only 50,000.
A wonderful and original, no-excuses vintage car. Just such a joy to drive. Almost all original equipment. A survivor class vehicle(???). Comes with original tires and wheels, owners manuals, and other related items. Indoors stored always and it shows. No sun or UV damage. Truly remarkable condition.
If you are looking for a turn-key, no excuses car that you don't have to fiddle with, this could be it. It has no quirks, no finicky old-cartemperament and needs absolutely nothing. It runs great and drives beautifully. My wife enjoyed driving this Ambassador onoccasion, with our 2 young children!!! With super low mileage, this could be an ideal purchase for someone from Europe or overseas that is looking to enjoy a wonderful vintage car.
As far as price, I've tried to do some research but, there seems to be very little information. It made me realize just how rare this car is. I thoughtI could find some comparables online, maybe add a few points for the condition and really low mileage, then have a baseline idea of price but, that didn't happen. Other than a very high evaluation, there seems to be very little market basis for establishing a price. As such, my wife and I decided we are going to auction this car unreserved. Place your bid and decide what it's worth.
Details etc...... As stated, this AMC is being soldUNRESERVED. Starting price is 250 dollars. Asides from helping arrange your shipping, I have no time to take 99 more pictures, or have 2-hour long conversations. Questions from genuine buyers are welcome and I will try my best. I won't be taking any additional pictures so please don't ask. If you know what you are looking at, you know what it is and can see my description is an honest one as can be. It's probably a misnomer to say I don't care about price, but I am knowingly sacrificing dollars to put more emphasis on a hassle-free and quick sale. As such, I am not going to get into long drawn out discussions as to whether it's a 5/10 condition, or 8/10. Let's just call this a 1/10. Perspectives vary so, for ease of sale, please disregard everything else and assume this Ambassador is an awful wreck salvage-value project vehicle that is needing everything. My goal is to avoid insincere and zero-feedback bidders who will not follow through with their commitment. My other goal is to find somebody genuine, who will really appreciate how much fun they will have with a car like this.
Also, very important....review our feedback please.....Each is for a 40+ year old vehicle!
During our relatively short tenure on eBay, we've figured out2 very important things arecommunicationandprocedure. We have a little procedure. Our little procedure focuses on communication. It goes as follows:
  • After auction, we ask for your buyer's information.
    • You supply.
  • We fill in transfer papers and scan/send to you.
    • You confirm spelling and information correct.
  • You go to your bank, and send funds.
    • We validate receipt.
  • We begin on shipping,
    • ...keeping you informed every step..
  • You receive your classic AMC muscle car.
  • You leave us another fabulous feedback,
We're not interested in Paypal or deposits... I realize I'm somewhat the anti-salesman and have taken intentional strides to heavily under-represent this vehicle. That's fine. Of importance to us right now is a smooth sale to a genuine buyer. If you are bidding, please be serious as I am and understand our adherence to this little system/procedure. It's to help both of us. If, for any reason, you cannot adhere to this procedure, please let us know BEFORE BIDDING. OR,....IF YOU HAVE ZERO FEEDBACK OR ARE NEW TO EBAY YOU MUST CONTACT ME BEFORE BIDDING.Otherwise, I will cancel your bid.

DELIVERY:...to most states and destinations is in the $1500+ range. Please keep that in mind. Budget for at least this amount. Texas and Florida, and other far southeastern states, are obviously a bit more at minimum $2250-ish. Any required inspections, certifications, registrations, paperwork, or anything else are the buyer's responsibility. I don't know the rules in each particular state so, am selling as per Alberta rules. My wife has become pretty good at setting up shipping and, is happy to assist. Rest is up to you. Payment is by bank transfer, US account to US account. As stated, I don't ask for Paypal. Once payment is received, everything else is ready to proceed from there. I believe putting this car unreserved will easily make up for any shipping costs. Somebody is likely to get a heck of a deal.
PICKUP:....not really recommended. See our procedure. I'll elaborate. It's a nearly half-century old car. I can't be responsible for everything. Old vehicles are unpredictable by nature. I'm not the seller that'll tell you that I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country. I”m not, and I won't say that. I just simply will not risk someone being unhappy.

CALLS:If you'd like to speak over the phone, I'm happy to hear from you. Please write and we'll make arrangements.
If you are fromOVERSEAS,please know we have shipped long distances several times. We are happy to assist. Since beginning to narrow down ourinadvertent collection a couple years ago, we've sold to England, France, Germany, Holland, Slovenia, as well as theMiddle East and New Zealand. If it says anything about what kind of sellers we are... We have sold 6 (six !!) to one gentleman alone in Holland, 2 to another, and 2 to one fellow in England.

And, well...... Ibelieve that covers everything.

Kindestregards, good luck, and happy bidding!
