1958 AMC Rambler Custom 6 Station Wagon

Another Cars and Parts feature car, this time capsule 1958 AMC Classic 6 station wagon had covered less than 10,000 miles when I shot it back in 2008. It's a Romney-era Rambler, George, not Mitt Romney (Mitt was 11 years old at the time) and it marked the start of the rise of AMC during the 1958 recession, that culminated in AMC rising to the number this position in sales in 1962.

Like all AMC station wagons, the area over the space behind the second row of seats looks as is if was grafted on... because it was. The AMC station wagons shared virtually all of the four-door sedan's stamping, thus making this range extension easy and inexpensive to add to the model lineup.

At the time these photos were taken the car was offered for sale by San Diego Classic and Muscle Cars in Escondido, California. I believe that the matching, attractive, home-built "canned ham" trailer shown in the photos was sold along with the car.
