The perfect Newport Beach "Surf Wagon" Very few produced, this is the highest model spec Original metal window shades still intact Just serviced by Tune Up Shop in Costa Mesa Reported only 578 made 1959 RAMBLER AMBASSADOR CUSTOM CROSS COUNTRY STATION WAGON Chassis No. V47347 Engine: V8, overhead valve, 327 cid (5.38cc) giving 270hp at 4,700rpm; Gearbox: Flash-O-Matic push button Borg-Warner three speed automatic transmission; Suspension: Coil suspension all round; Brakes; Four wheel drums. While the first use of the Rambler name dates back to its origins as a bicycle firm, the first Rambler cars appeared in 1899 and discontinued in 1914; two years later the company was acquired by Charles Nash and became the Nash Motors Company. The history of the modern Rambler goes back to 1950, when it was offered as the first successful modern compact car. In 1954, American Motors Corp, AMC was formed when Nash-Kelvinator and Hudson merged. Just prior to the start of 1958, AMC decided to discontinue the names Nash and Hudson and instead concentrated on a revised series of cars under the Rambler name, which evolved into its larger and more luxurious model. The Ambassador was AMC's full-size car continuing a model begun in 1932 by Nash. The Ambassador used the 327-cid V8 formerly used in top-of-the line Nashes. This power-plant had an excellent power-to-weight ratio for its time and provided spirited performance with a 0 to 60 mph time of under 10-seconds. In 1959, the Custom line Cross Country Station Wagon was by far the rarest model offered with around 578 manufactured. The Custom models featured the stylish lightning bolt side trim molding as well as two-tone paintwork and special badging. The interior mirrored the exterior with triple toned upholstery on the seats. This fabulous highly optioned six passenger Station Wagon was, as we understand a rust free example, which then benefitted from a meticulous and very expensive total restoration and is now currently suitable for either showing or driving events. Re-painted in its original Carmel Copper and black color scheme and with the famous anodized rear fender treatments. This Ambassador also boasts the following options: Flash-O-Matic push button transmission, front/split reclining seats, front headrests, air-conditioning, radio and antenna (and today includes an additional modern stereo unit), padded instrument panel, clock, Solex tinted glass, whitewall tires with wheel discs and dual exhausts. Seat belts have been fitted and there is a Poloron Thermaster coolerbox painted to match the car! This station wagon is a nostalgic step back into a wonderful era.
