1963 AMC Rambler Classic 660 6 cylinder
Replaced bias ply tires with radials.
Replaced master brake cylinder.
Replaced vacuum wiper motor with an electric one.
I picked this car up from an auction in San Francisco for $800 and drove it back to Seattle, and this beauty did not skip a beat.
The vehicle has a great bench seat system that when unfolded, turns into a complete double bed. What a simple and great idea.
I drove the car 60-70 mph and averaged 20 mpg for this trip. Not bad for a 44 year old car. It's a keeper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Just an update. The car recently started to sputter and a simple cleaning of the Distributor cap solved this. The point I am trying to make is that this car is so easy to maintain. I am getting 20-22 MPG with a 6 and it makes me wonder what we have really achieved in the last 40 years in automobile engine technology. Certainly, from an engine point of view - nothing.
