1959 NASH RAMBLER GREEN BRIER SUPER STATION WAGON
The history of this modern era of Rambler dates back to 1950 when they were offered as a compact car, and were one of the first successful compacts. In 1954 a merger between Nash-Kelvinator and Hudson created the American Motors Corp (AMC) car company. Prior to the 1958 model cars AMC discontinued the Nash and Hudson brands. Although still known by many as the Nash Rambler these cars were actually a resurrected version of the early ‘50’s Nash cars but now sold as Rambler Americans, so although a new car, they were in essence an old car under a new identity. This particular car has been modified to represent the earlier version by putting the 1953 era closed front fenders and grille on it that gave the original car such identifiable and unusual style that today is just as neat as you can get. These body panels are easily interchangeable because little was changed except the style. This car being the “Super” has the bright chrome trim around the windshield and rear tailgate window plus the chrome belt line molding. Power came from a 6-cylinder flat head (L) engine that was 195.6 cubic inches and developed 90 horsepower and a 3-speed gearbox. These cars just ooze with charm and character. Everywhere you look from the fact they are a two door wagon to the hood ornament on to the in dash radio and tailgate hinges, it is all unusual and stylish. This example drives amazingly well and has had extensive restoration. Not built to be a trailer queen but built to have a few laughs and some fun with. Finished in Two Tone Green with a matching interior.
