Description

1967 AMC Rambler American Rogue Hardtop Coupe
Registration no. ONF 73H
Chassis no. A7LM97C101563

Formed in 1954 by the merger of Nash-Kelvinator and Hudson, American Motors Corporation marketed its cars under the 'Rambler' name from 1958 up to 1966 when they became 'AMC'. Prior to the merger, Nash has been making the enormously successful Rambler compact, which became the 'American' when Rambler was adopted as the marque name in '58. For 1967 there were three trim levels in the Rambler American line-up, at the top of which sat the Rogue. Two body styles were available for the Rogue: a two-door hardtop coupe or two-door convertible. Six-cylinder engines were the standard offering on the Rambler American series, with various V8s optional.

An American classic rarely seen in the UK, this Rogue has the sporting combination of the 290ci (4.7-litre) V8 engine and four-speed manual transmission with floor shift. First registered in the city of Aberdeen, Washington State, the Rogue moved to the UK in 1973 with its first owner, who sold it to the current vendor in March 1974 (purchase receipt on file). The car is highly original, the only deviations from factory specification being a change of rood covering colour from white to brown, and a Ford Motorcraft carburettor, fitted in place of the original Holley. Described by the private vendor as in generally good condition, the car is offered with sundry bills, an old-style logbook, V5C Registration Certificate, fresh MoT, and a quantity of spare parts, including the original radio.
