1964 AMC Other American 330 Description:

1964 AMC Rambler American 330
I bought this car because I wanted something different to take too cruise nights and car shows after selling my 32 Ford 5 window and have been amazed at the response the little car has generated at every event I attended.
It has a stock drive train which includes the original 196 Cubic Inch L head flat 6 with 90 HP and automatic transmission. The power plant in itself is enough to get people to look at the car. People are amazed to see a flathead powering a car from the 60's. I was told that the 1964 Rambler was the last production American built car that came stock with a flathead in it. I have converted the distributor with a Petronix high energy conversion kit, Petronix Flame Thrower high voltage coil and also installed new distributor cap, rotor, plug wires, and plugs.I have also installed an NOS carter RBS carburetor and a Riches Custom cast aluminum air cleaner and breather along with other chrome engine bay dress up items such as a 100 amp alternator, voltage regulator, bolts, brackets, and oil filter.
The car runs and drives great and gets good MPG. The flathead 6 has no problem keeping up with the freeway traffic and the transmission shifts smooth. I drove the car all over the Midwest attending car shows and cruise nights all summer with no problems at all. The engine runs cool even in heavy traffic like cruising the Heartland Nationals in Des Moines for hours in the July heat.The car has a full RideTech air ride system that is controlled by a panel mounted under the dash. The system is designed to allow for the car to be driven if a major problem occurs and you lose all air in the system. The air tank, compressor, valves, and controls are mounted in the trunk. The car rides very nice going down the road and when you get to the show dump the air and put the frame on the ground.
The car might be one of the straightest and cleanest 64 Ramblers in the country. The chrome, trim, bumpers, mirrors, and badges look like they are new and the body is arrow straight. The car is painted in the stock color of Bengal Ivory and looks amazing. I have many people comment that they have never seen a Rambler this straight. You truly have to see it in person to understand how clean and straight this car is. Everything works as it should. The heat blows hot, turn signals and cancelling cams work correctly, windows roll up and down nice, and the doors, trunk lid, and hood shut with ease and have great gaps all around.
The interior is also stock with the standard split bench seat that will fully recline to a flat position. I have added an AM/FM/ blue tooth receiver in the glove box because I didn't want to cut the stock dash. I also installed two 3 ½ inch speakers in the stock speaker dash location and two Custom Autosound 100 amp speakers under the seats. The set up works great and is hidden from view. All can be controlled by a remote. The seats, headliner, door panels, knobs, cranks, dash, gauges, carpet, belts, and trim are all in amazing condition.The car rides on 18 X 7 Billet Specialties Vintec wheels that are mounted on Yokohama 205/40ZR18 speed rated tires.
I did install HID headlights in place of the original T3 headlamps for safety reasons. If you would install the original steel wheels with poverty caps and air up the air-ride to stock height the car looks completely stock.You can do whatever you want with the car, it performs great and has proven itself to be very reliable driver. The car is solid and will accept upgrades well. I have a friend that has installed an LS2 in his Rambler and I have seen a couple done with newer Hemi engines also. There are plenty of manufacturers out there making parts for either swap.
The Rambler seems to be a hit as it has won numerous awards at national and local events including 3 awards at Goodguys shows.It has also been a feature car in Rod and Custom and Fuel Curve magazines as well as appearing in Street Rodder magazine, Crusin Times magazine, and many Goodguys Gazette magazines. The Rambler is very well liked and will be the center of attention whenever it pulls into a show or cruise night.
I like the car but have other interests that require my funds and attention so I must let her go. The car is used and is being sold by a private party so it does NOT have any warranty written or implied.With that being said, I am very confident that the only thing this car needs is a new owner that wants to put the key in the ignition and go cruising.I have driven the car all summer and it has proven to be a very good driver and very road worthy. I would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere.The reserve price is very realistic for a car of this quality. I want to sell the car and do not have the time to deal with fake bidders so please have all funds ready and the approval of the boss before bidding so this experience is good for the buyer and the seller. I have sold many high quality vehicles and have not had anyone disappointed. The Rambler is very nice but is a driven car so it has a couple rock chips in the paint and the chassis is clean but not polished like a trailer queen street rod. You will not find a nicer car for the money anywhere in the country.
I am located in Knoxville, Iowa and welcome any and all interested parties to come and look at the car in person or send someone out to inspect the car on your behalf. If you are unable to inspect the car personally I can send additional photos and information out on the car. Feel free to email or call about anything on the car. I will answer any and all questions in a timely manner. I want the prospective buyers to have all of the information before bidding.
I would like a $500 non refundable deposit in the form of cash or pay pal within 48 hours of the auction ending and the remaining funds within 5 business days in the form of a wire transfer, cashiers check, or cash in person.I have a clean and clear Iowa title and registration for the car and they along with the car will be released when the funds have cleared my bank.The cost of transporting the car to its new home is the responsibility of the new owner but I can assist in the arranging the transport and the car can be stored at my location until pickup.
Thanks again for looking at my Rambler and considering it for your collection.Don't purchase the car if you don't like talking to people because the car draws a crowd everywhere. The little car is liked by all from the young kids that want to drop an LS in it to the old people that remember their Grandma taking them to church in it.
Good Luck and remember to Bid Early and Bid Often
