For the 1963 model year, American Motors called on designer Dick Teague to redesign their entire lineup of Classic and Ambassador cars by a shape that was much tighter, cleaner, and smoother, with almost all of its parts interchangeable between it and the new Classic. AMC’s new 112-inch wheelbase cars used a revolutionary method of unit construction which has since been almost universally adopted by automobile manufacturers. AMC Ambassador and Classics used outer panels stamped from single sheet metal panels which included both door frames and outer rocker panels. A prime example of this forward-thinking can be seen in this 990 Rambler Station Wagon originally listed in October 2020 on Craigslist in New Marshfield, Ohio with an asking price of $9,700.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“63 AMC Ambassador 990 Stationwagon, AMC 327 V8 rebuilt, three on the tree standard transmission with overdrive, new interior, new wheels & tires, good solid body and fun to drive.”
