Sharp, striking, and interesting - this 1965 AMC Rambler Ambassador 990 is a seldom-seen convertible on the classic car scene. And while it\'s a distinct machine that will turn heads, it\'s also a heck of a value for a well-presented V8 drop-top.

The Ambassador received a striking redesign to debut the fifth generation in 1965. Stacked headlights were popular with Ford and Pontiac, but AMC had its flair with a pointed front end that gives this full-sized sedan very sharp styling. This creates a theme with well-creased sheet metal, bumpers, and even tail lights. 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 how AMC built its premium car in 1965. This one is amazing down to the details like the correct wire hubcaps, full-length fender trim, and all the correct badging. And there\'s just something extra sporty about a bright red drop-top with plenty of chrome.

The black convertible top has a clean and dark style that looks like a newer investment. And while it looks terrific in place, you\'ll also love powering it down to reveal the full black interior. It looks highly stock with nice details like the silver piping in the clean upholstery, a classic two-tone steering wheel, and plenty of wood-like trim for this premium 990-level Ambassador. It\'s quite vintage, right down to working courtesy light and stock AM/FM radio. But you\'ll also appreciate an eye for the right updates, like newer carpeting. There\'s plenty of room to take around family and friends in this full-size convertible, but even if it\'s just you, the experience is still fun. Front bucket seats, a folding armrest, a full center console, and a tilt steering column make this quite an appealing cruiser.

You\'ll love opening the hood with a car this stock-style so far. The different shades of red for the motor and the car make this visually distinct. AMC\'s 327 cubic-inch V8 was the top-dog displacement for 1964, so it was part of their range-topping Ambassador 990. It has an honest appearance where you can also see later investments that keep this a solid runner. This convertible was made to be a cruiser. That\'s why you have power steering, power brakes, a three-speed automatic transmission, and modern touring tires.

Complete with the owner\'s manual. This Rambler Ambassador 990 allows you to stand out in all the best ways and do it for an affordable price. So don\'t miss this drop-top deal. Call now!
