Affordable, interesting, and a survivor – this 1966 AMC Ambassador is a great way to get all the right attention from any classic car crowd. And for those days when you just want a cool cruiser, the original 327 V8 is there to eat up the mile with ease.

The Ambassador received a striking redesign for 1966. Stacked headlights were popular with Ford and Pontiac, but AMC gave had its own flair with a pointed front end that gives this full-sized sedan very sharp styling. In fact, this sets off a theme with well-creased sheetmetal, bumpers, and even taillights. It truly looks like it has the meticulously well-groomed appearance you'd expect from a suit on a 1960s executive. That's what makes this one so appealing. With amazingly preserved metal and complete trim, you can still see today the how AMC was built its premium car for 1966. This one is amazing right down to the details like the fresh factory-correct Grenada Green paint and all the correct badging. Even the original hubcaps come with the sale.

Inside, the two-tone green interior keeps the '60s theme alive while also nicely coordinating with the exterior color. When you look at the door panels, seat backs, and dash, you can tell that this is original equipment that has survived nicely for over half a century. But more than just that, you're going to have fun with the details like the regional working AM radio and even the American Motors accessory tissue holder is still in place! There's plenty of room to take around family and friends in this full-size sedan, but even if it's just you, the experience is still a fun one. You've got the original stylized steering wheel with American Motors horn cap. And beyond that there's a full set of gauges, as well as everything from wipers to the heat/defrost is at your fingertips. This is a true time capsule of classic motoring.

With a car this original so far, you're going to love opening the hood. You and everyone else will already be able to tell this is an exceptionally honest engine bay, and so you'll be happy to tell them that this big red V8 is date correct to be original to the car. And when it comes time to enjoy this out on the road, you'll be pleased that the first owners checked the option box to upgrade to the 327 cubic-inch motor. It fires up easily thanks to investments like a new battery, fuel gauge, alternator, and muffler. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission shifts quite smooth. AMC offered one of the best rear suspension packages for large sedans for the era, and so the ride is exactly how you want a cool cruiser like this to be. Plus, power brakes and new tires help keep everything quite comfortable.

Complete with plenty of documentation, including owner's manual, original warranty card, maintenance records, and pictures on restoration work, you're looking at a rare gem with all the right features. So if you want to standout in all the best ways, and do it for an affordable price, call today!
