“Come drive it, you’ll love it” is what the Craigslist ad says and you know the seller might be right because based on the pictures I already love this terrific looking Rambler wagon. Starting with the dark turquoise exterior, the clean lines and just enough brightwork and ornamentation it’s easy to see why Rambler wagons were giving the Big Three a run for it’s money in the 1960’s. Listed on Craigslist near Boston this wagon can be had for $9,000.
The odometer shows just over 39,000 miles and I have no reason to think the miles have turned because everything looks clean and original throughout although it’s possible there has been a repaint along the way. The exterior color theme extends to the inside with a light/dark green two-tone that seems a perfect fit for a Rambler.
Some old oil change stickers can be seen which might give some insight about the cars sparse use over the years. Only the slightest wear or soiling can be seen on the interior but overall it looks extremely nice!
Rambler Classic’s were roomy and affordable offering great economy. In fact 6 cylinder models could get over 30 MPG highway which was remarkable for the day. Rambler literature would tout the cargo area area as a “Kiddies Playpen” where children could play for hours in relaxed comfort!
With asking price of $9,000, this Rambler looks like a great buy as long as it runs and drives as good as it looks. Parts are plentiful for Ramblers, they’re easy to work on and they have a strong following making them what AMC sought to do originally- build durable and affordable family cars.
