  • Bigsy, here's a Rambler for you

    Bob,

    This thing is calling your name. Too bad about the aborted engine transplant.

    I thought it was Leonard who was the Nash/Rambler fan. This one sports the Nash front end. Those rear wing windows open too! Nice car... once.[B)]

        I actually do like those 56 Ramblers and I looked at this one on eBay, but the more I looked, I got very scarred. There is way too much work to do on this one, not to mention if it is cobbled up to get the SBC in there.

        The only way I would think of buying a Rambler is if it was in the condition that this one is in. I had to keep myself from bidding on it[]

            I DO like Rammers! I've owned a fair number of them thru the years. But about 12 years ago, I came to the conclusion that it was TOO MUCH to try and keep TWO different orphan makes on their feet and I just liked Studes more!

            I love that hardtop, Leonard! My dream ride (in an AMC) would be a 57 Ambassador Hardtop![:0][]

            BTW, this wagon on ebay - I've seen BETTER examples in junkyards out here. Much better!

            1957 Transtar 1/2ton
            1960 Larkvertible V8
            1958 Provincial wagon
            1953 Commander coupe

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                I've a friend who has one of these in pink and silver. The upholstry has a tooled saddle leather look to it. It's dried out and very brittle. Still, the rest of the car is in excellent shape, except for the missing engine and tranny, and there isn't a scratch or dent on it anywhere. Ray keeps saying he's going to put a shove-it-or-leave-it under the hood someday.

                The one mentioned here might make someone a good parts car...[8)]

                That hardtop is geooooooorgeous! It's also the same colour as Ray's wagon.
