Hemmings Find of the Day – 1964 Rambler American 440 convertible

Published in blog.hemmings.com

From the seller’s description:

1964 AMC American 440 Convertible, This vehicle has been in the family for several years, has seen it’s fair share of car shows and taken home a few trophies along the way. As the case with most over 50 year olds, they are always a work in progress and has been well cared for. About the only item not yet replaced is the original windshield, which has some pitting and a wiper scuff. The vehicle has lived it’s life in Colorado and has zero rust. Vehicle is driven and shown often, so there are a few minor nicks. When I purchased this vehicle, the initial 196 CID 6 cyl engine had evidently been replaced by a 199 CID from a 1965 American 440, according to the present engine serial number and its obvious appearance. Please give this piece of “Art Americana” a good home.
