What makes an awesome restomod? Fuel-injected LS power? An overdrive transmission? A leather-lined custom A/C interior? An adjustable suspension? Not only does this 1969 AMC Rambler American answer "yes" to all of those, but it also delivers it in a bright and distinct package that makes for a memorable cruiser.
We love a good AMC because they represent a cool classic American. And since their production figures were lower than The Big Three, that makes for plenty of rare distinction on the classic car scene. But the distinction of this one goes much further than production numbers. It announces it's unique with the right well-placed upgrades. The orange paint has a vibrant style that gives this an aggressive impression. But there's also a touch of premium because the hue is said to be borrowed from the BMW M3 color palette, and it has a premium gloss that shows off this AMC's crisp and classic lines. There's a coordinated dark side contrast with the dark grille, blackout rear panels, and upgraded dark alloys. And speaking of the wheels they are staggered 17/18 inches front/rear for a nice stance, and that gets enhanced further because you can dial-in the height with the fully adjustable air ride suspension.
The interior is thoughtfully done where the color theme switches from the exterior to now give you plenty of black with just the right touches of bold orange. We love how the seats give you the classic split bench look but now it's deluxe custom upholstery done in supple leather. Plush carpeting, custom door panels, a smooth dash, and a custom foam headliner are all about making sure you remember a restomod means adding comfort. There's plenty of added luxury that also comes from upgrades like the cold-blowing air conditioning, cup holders, and an AM/FM stereo with USB and Bluetooth. There's even a custom consul with toggle switches for the air ride controls. Plus the sports steering wheel, billet pedals, and upgraded gauges signal that you'll love the driving experience.
The engine bay has an awesome sense of style. All that darkness focuses your attention on the bold orange engine cover, and so you really notice the upgraded V8 heart. In fact, this 5.7-liter LS1 V8 has a cleanly installed style that almost makes this upgraded GM powerhouse look like it has always been in this classic AMC. LS power is the choice for the modern generation because they have a hardy and powerful reputation that's just like the old small blocks, but now with a modern fuel-injected smoothness. And when you add in details like an aluminum radiator with electric fans and a 4L60 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, there's an almost daily driver kind of appeal. Manual drum brakes give it the right touch of old-school feeling to remind you this restomod is still a classic, and if that's not to your taste, you also know there are a ton of ways to upgrade it. And upgrades like the rack & pinion power steering and grippy ZR-rated tires already elevate the driving experience.
It's hard not to be impressed with the style, features, and serious quickness of this Rambler restomod. This is about real distinction and real driving pleasure. Call today!!!
