This vehicle is on Remote Consignment and is stored at the seller's house. It can be viewed by appointment only. We are pleased to offer this amazing 1961 American Rambler wagon street rod for sale. This custom beach cruiser is absolutely amazing inside and out. The attention to detail is incredible and is everywhere you look. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s start with the exterior. This wagon was soda blasted and has been painted in a beautiful dark brown metallic on the bottom and burnt orange metallic on the roof using Matrix paint. It is broken up by a custom pinstripe with some faux wood on the quarter panels. American Racing aluminum alloy wheels give this car a touch of modern styling and are wrapped in radial tires for a great ride. Inside, you are greeted by heated bucket seats, a custom center console with floor shifter, tilt steering column, woodgrain steering wheel and a Clarion AM/FM/CD player. Custom door panels have the Rambler logo raised for a neat classy touch. The front and rear seats have seat belts to keep you and your passengers safe, and the Optima Yellow Top battery is in the rear section with a cool custom wooden trunk to cover it. The trim on the inside is all painted in a faux wood finish and then satin clear coated, which not only looks cool but gives the interior a beachy woody wagon feel. The AMC 343 CID V8 engine is built and show quality in appearance. The engine and transmission have been completely rebuilt and he block, heads and oil pan are painted in a beautiful bronze metallic that looks great in the engine compartment and underneath the car. The valve covers have been given the faux wood treatment as well, and it is sure to draw stares at any car show you attend. The air cleaner is custom with a wood background with Mr. Horsepower and some custom pinstriping. The air cleaner nut is a piece of cork with the nut inside. Like I said, there are neat details everywhere you look in this beach cruiser. The Rambler logo is painted on the smoothed firewall with a pearl and is emblazoned on the radiator cap as well. A chrome alternator, chrome A/C compressor, aluminum radiator with electric fan and billet overflow all help bring this engine compartment to a show quality level. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dig into the mechanical aspects of this beauty next. The American 343 engine is built with an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake and Edelbrock 500 CFM 4-barrel carburetor. The exhaust is a dual setup with ceramic coated manifolds running to glass packs for a nice muscle car rumble. It is mated to an AMC automatic transmission and ends up out back at a Ford 9Ã¢â‚¬Â rear end with cruiser friendly 2.50 gears. Four-wheel disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power and a Mustang II style front end with rack and pinion steering makes for a nice ride. This Rambler completed the Hot Rod Power Tour and has the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Long HaulerÃ¢â‚¬Â sticker on the back to prove it. It was built to be driven and enjoyed and is sure to put a smile on your face. This AMC Rambler wagon has won numerous awards including the 2014 AMO Gold Award. The car was drivin from Florida to South Carolina, awarded Gold and then driven home. In 2015 this car was driven from Florida to the Cruisin' the Coast in Biloxi Mississippi and back! This Rambler was featured in the 2015 Matrix Paint calendar as well. The last detail weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to tell you about is the fuel tank. The fuel tank is custom painted to look like it is wood, and you can just catch a glimpse of it from behind the car. If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for a one of a kind wagon that is ready to cruise and enjoy, give this Rambler a good long look. For additional information, please visit .
