1965 AMC Ambassador 880 Station Wagon V8
A symbol of a bygone era
Nothing major that I can remember - this was our family car when I was a child. It had a tendency to flood often and become hard to start. The time my father traded it in, it had started to rust through on the lower quarter panels. It also was hinting at a valve job.
This was the typical family car in the 60's that we took road trips in. It had some of the decals that had showed different places we had been on the rear side window. I can remember drive-in movies as a kid, and sometimes going to sleep in the back before the movie was over. Traveling on roads like route 66 while the interstates were still being built, and stopping along the road eating at rest stops that were only picnic tables along the roadside.
I was sad to see this car go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
