The Rambler

A guy I know in Penzance is selling this 1964 AMC Rambler on ebay. It would make such a good surf wagon. Its an export model made in Canada with right hand drive, apparently the only one of this year and model in the UK. Nice burble from the 3.2 litre engine, and has a wind down back window so you can hang the longboards out the back. Stylin' .
The only problem is its £13,000 , ouch !


  1. This advert had some interesting ideas on what a surfboard actually looked like - despite the many fibreglass longboards on sale in 1964. Reminds me of the current drawings, models & pottery in GB which purport to show boards too.
    Amazing that no-one does research before representing a wave-sliding vehicle.....

  2. you're right. those boards are pretty clunky. Good for carrying girls around though
