AMC

AMC was formed from the merger of Nash and Hudson, using the Nash Rambler as its platform to regain market share. The marque would follow up with some suprisingly good models, such as the 1959 V8 Ambassador and sporty Javelin. AMC purchased Kaiser-Jeep in 1970, the Jeep becoming AMC's best seller for many years. Unfortunately they were never a real match for the Big 3, and so attempted to make a play for the compact car market with the Pacer, an oversized small car. AMC were taken over by Chrysler in 1988, the latter only interested in the Jeep.
AMC Rambler 770  

AMC Rambler 770

1963 - 1966
The Rambler 770 may have been, by the American definition, a "Compact", but the standards of just about any other country, it remained very much a large car. Like the large American cars then available, the 770 was both conventional and familiar, the mechanical specification including a long-stroke six-cylinder engine, live rear axle with coil springs, torque tube and a Panhard rod, and large diameter drum brakes all round.

1970 - 1977
Built on a 108-inch wheelbase, the new Hornet sedans had a long hood/short rear deck styling theme that was in line with the public tastes at the time. These basic elements had been used in 1969 for the new Ford Maverick compact car, which had proven to be immensely popular. More >>
