Lee, on that car I think the wheels really make it a finished product. I was truely an Ambassador fan but I liked the Javelins and AMX's too. I am afraid that the shape of that particular car is something that only an owner could love.

Well I can see your point on the Ambassador, neat looking car,



And I agree that the Pacer is FINISHED, but once again that word is up for interpretation.

Yup, but quite a few years earlier.

I was with the Calgary Police Service in the early 70's when we changed out our fleet to Ramblers Ambassadors, which had two different engines and I forgot what they were. These cars came with power steering and air but someone made the brilliant decision to remove the power steering and the air and then they put sandbags in the trunk to compensate and also left a big hole in the dash by taking out the air. When they came up for replacement they sold very few at auction and had to scrap most of them.

In 1968, the Ambassador had the distinction of being the first U.S. automobile made in volume that was equipped with air conditioning as standard equipment. Only Rolls-Royce and some sports car manufacturers had this offering.

I always wanted a Mercury pickup. The Fargo was a neat rig too. :hihi:

Here is a link to American Motors. Lee, I do believe that they made one uglier than the Pacer. Check out the Gremlins.

You have to scroll down to the pics.

There was a reason it was called the Gremlin. The Marlin fastbacks were also hideous.
