Ok, so I bought the blue 74 Ambassador when I was 13 for a hundred bucks. The next AMC I bought was a 76 Matador sedan, I was 15 by then. I can't remembe... Show morer if I paid $150.00 or $200.00 for it, but it was just a parts car & not worth scanning photos.
My next car was my first daily driver, a 1975 Cadillac DeVille 4 dr HT. It was a fun ride, BIG 500 cid V8! I was 16 then & my folks were paying for gas, I still feel guilty to this day for all the gas I burned up just messing around!
My next AMC was a 1969 Ambassador station wagon. I bought it for $300.00, it had the 343 "Typhoon" V8! I wish I had known then what I know now, I never would have let that one go. It was in fairly good shape, it hadn't been in Minnesota long enough to rust. But it did have some problems, probably more problems than the rose tint of time will let me remember!
I guess I don't have any really good pictures of the 69 wagon. This picture was taken the day I bought it, it was filthy, but did clean up nice! The only other pictures I can find of it have me standing by it, or in front of it.
So we'll move on & skip forward to the next AMC I bought. It was late 2001 when I found this car on eBay. Its a 1962 "Rambler" Ambassador Custom sedan. I bought it because it was cheap ($510.00) & it was an Ambassador, but this body style has really grown on me! & its a fun little ride with the 327 AMC V8, Plenty of pep! It has some surface rust on the front drivers side fender but nothing bad yet. Also a dent or two on the passenger side, but again nothing too bad.
That was it's first show, its only been to 2 shows & was in the unfinished class in both. I feel like I should do something with it before I enter it in the show again. I do hope to have it back on the road this summer (2007), I miss driving it!
I found another 1974 Ambassador on eBay in the Fall of 2002. It is a daisy yellow w/ dark brown top sedan.
I paid something like $177.50 for it. It has some surface rust, but no holes! It is from Washington state. In the eBay auction it said it didn't run, these pictures were taken just before it drove it's self into the shed for the winter! I've never been let down by a 74 Ambassador...

Thanks for looking at my pages, I hope you have liked what you've seen!
These are the pictures of my 1954 Nash Ambassador Country Club 2 door hard top.... Show more This is a very rare car by anyone's standards. Only 3,581 of these were built! & yes, I know it's a basket case now, but its a great "someday car". Someday this one is going to be a cool custom! I've got (another) 76 Matador sedan "donor" car, its got a good 360 w/ 4V & a good 727 auto behind it. As well as many other good parts.
As you can see in the pictures the rockers are gone, what you can't see in the pictures is that the floors are all gone too, she needs a lot of help!!
Well, thats it for now, check me later for more pic's of my Ambassador fleet. I'll have some new pictures soon!
