Rambler Bodies
Posted by jwrass14 on Saturday, January 28, 2017 12:15 PM

Hey Gang,

Does anyone know of any early to mid 60s Rambler kits and or bodies (no Rebels) that were/are produced..... Looking to do something different in the Gasser class!

Thanks Much!

AMT did a slammer type early Rambler called the Ramblur. It's a covertible with blacked out windows and a blower attached to the hood. There's also promos as a wagon ('64 I think) and a four door sedan. Not sure of the maker. JoHan did the '62 Sudebaker Lark in a convertible and hardtop. Try a search for Rambler on ebay and see what it comes up with.

You're welcome. Make sure you do your search in the promo section. You'll get more results. I did one myself and a cool old '62 Rambler taxi cab pulled up.

Johan, of course, did Rambler kits starting all the way back in the early 60s.

The ones that I know of for sure were the '59 Rambler wagon, & I believe they did the Rambler American from '62-'66.

They also did the '66 Marlin & the '69 SC Rambler.

I'm not much of an AMC fan, so there might be more that I'm missing.

The '66 Marlin & '69 SC Rambler are not difficult to find, but the American kits are rare & will cost you.

Thanks Steve,

Thanks so much for your input... I too am not much a AMC fan!

My thought was to do something different in the Gasser class... A blown Hemi in the 62-66 era.... Tired of the same old thing.

Thanks "RASS"

You can usually get the JoHan '62 Studebaker Lark's pretty cheap. They have a similar styled body to the early Rambler. They come in a convertible and hardtop. Like you, I don't like to build the same thing everyone else is. This is a '62 Lark I built in a day.

Plowboy,

Again thanks... As per your recommendation I did go on ebay and their are indeed some offerings..... The lark sounds a great Idea as well... My Grandfather had a 1962 Rambler Classic (4 door) I think I may go with the 62 2 door as a tribute to one of the finest man I have ever known... 

Peace, Jimmy "RASS"

Ah , Goofy 62;

 Tell me about that ! I took three years to find one and actually my son found it . I still have to patch the hole in the hood , But luckily it has all the stock parts too .  O.C.G.    P.S can you say Thirty Bucks !

Hmmm , Plowboy;

 Now you take that windshield frame and chop it a scale three inches . Section the body , Give it the " Stance " and fill the engine compartment with a 409 and all the goodies , you got a winner .These bodies always were easy to re-work . O.C.G.

One thing about the '69 Rambler SC, it's really the '66 with a hood scoop.

Super idea for a Rambler Gasser! Small lightweight body.
