This character filled, Australian complied, 6-seater Hearse is powered by a powerful V8 engine and paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission offering smooth, subtle gear changes making it an excellent cruiser. As a one of a kind example of the Rambler Rebel SST, this matching numbered example is a rarity and would make for a sound addition to any collection.

Finished in a unique Burgundy paint, the 'Deep Russet' paintwork was optioned and exclusive upon release in 1970 and showcases the very best attributes of the Rambler Rebel. An aftermarket black vinyl hardtop roof has been fitted. Its innovative design is classed unique and highly desirable in this condition.

Featuring the factory optioned SST trim upgrade, the interior trim presents in Grey over a black dash, highlighted with wood-grain inserts and with an interior produced with every aspect of luxury in mind, this well-maintained example presents in fair condition overall. Having undergone a tasteful conversion to a 'hearse' this example is fitted with a novelty casket and a fake body in the rear for fun!

Comparable to none, an example modified like this offers great promotional potential and is fitted with all necessary instrumentation as a hearse. With previous registration in WA, this example stands as one of a kind on the market being a classic collectible or its business potential.

Presenting an Australian assembled, stunning example of a 1970 Rambler Rebel 'Hearse' edition (AMI), the Rambler rebel was a mid-sized car produced between 1967-1970. These were assembled in Australia by the Australian Motor Industries company in Port Melbourne, Victoria. They were assembled as right-hand drives and had the engine, transmission, front suspension, rear axles and doors fitted to the body while in the USA. Other parts were boxed and shipped with the car for the final Assembly in Australia, then AMI plated. International sales of the AMC Rebel were sold under the 'Rambler Rebel' name.
