Back in the early 60s, no one was hot rodding Rambler Americans. It just wasn’t done, or rarely at best, but with the benefit of many years gone by and a new appreciation for almost any car from the era, we see creations like this.
This 1962 Rambler American convertible is powered by a 350 Chevy with Edelbrock aluminum heads, a 750 Dominator carb and an HEI distributor feeding power through a Bowtie 700R overdrive trans with a 2000 stall converter. Flowmaster exhaust gets the sound right, American wheels on all new suspension get the stance right, this car pushes all the right buttons.
It’s hard not to like it and if you want something you’re unlikely to see parked next to you on cruise night, this car’s for sale. Check it out.
