VOLO , Illinois
Only 1,512 built total, ever! AMC wanted a musclecar to compete with the big three automakers. Easy, stuff a big motor in a compact car. The typically very mundane Rambler Rogue was their car of choice. With the help of Hurst performance they created a car that could blow the doors off some pedigreed muscle cars. At the time there wasn't much budget for AMC to promote. The car needed to be it's own billboard so it was given a wild appearance that was at the time considered obnoxious. Today it is an exciting car and highly sought after. This one includes a box of owner history, receipts including engine rebuild and original literature.
EXTERIOR: It certainly makes a statement. Believe it or not the paint is over 20 years old. It still shows great, has a smooth glossy finish. No bubbles, looking down the sides it is straight. The red sides and blue stripe are outlined in black. The lettering on the hood is painted on. It has it's original "snout" ram air scoop and hood pins. It also has it's original bullet style mirrors. Each car also features custom grill, black tail panel and special emblems. As if the red, white and blue paint wasn't already enough- AMC thought the wheels should be blue too! Has recent BFG tires. Bumpers are rechromed, windshield is new. Door jambs are clean, new weather strips and sill plates.
INTERIOR: Very nice inside. It is essentially the same as a Rambler other then red, white and blue headrests and an 8 grand Sun Tach on the column. The upholstery is excellent, both front seats recline. New chrome covers on seat hinges. Door panels, armrests and headliner is really good. The carpet is new and has embroidered SC- Hurst floormats. The chrome dash bezels have been replaced($495), has stock radio and new glovebox liner. Steering wheel has been restored.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has it's original 390 motor with original # tag on the valve cover. The ram air induction system is complete and functional. It even has the heat riser tube, new actuator rubber seal. The motor has a clean coat of the original aqua. Recent tune up and rebuilt carb. It's a very respectable and proper the engine compartment.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Trunk is solid, has a new mat and the cardboard sidewalls. Under the trunk lid and the jamb is painted white, has new weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: Each SC Rambler was equipped with heavy duty suspension. Upfront it has disc brakes. Miscellaneous parts look new- shocks, steering box, various bushings. Bottom of motor is clean. In back it has 3.54 posi and new shocks. It has the T-10 Borg Warner 4-speed trans. Recent exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers.
This is one of the rarest, most exciting muscle cars built. It certainly creates conversation wherever it goes. It includes a nice framed presentation of the SC/Rambler Hurst. Don't forget what a blast to drive this is- ram air 390 with a 4-speed and posi in a little Rambler! This car is certainly is not going down in value.
