Every so often we get surprised by some pure and rare muscle in mint condition hitting the auctions. This 1969 Hurst Performance AMC SC/Rambler in “A” trim is among rarest muscle cars on the planet. Only 1,512 SC/Ramblers have been produced during that fateful 1969, and large part of them came in “B” scheme recognized by a thin red and blue stripes below the waist. “A” pattern, on the other hand, features much more paint as you can see from the images below.
Every SC/Rambler came with strongest available engine for the nameplate at the time. 390 ci 6.4L V8 is what beats under this muscle car’s scoop-adorned hood, and it produces no less than 315 horses and 425 pound-feet of torque. Being made in collaboration with Hurst Performance, this rare Rambler came with close gear ratios 4-speed manual transmission in Hurst’s recognizable T-shaped demeanor. Thanks to these specs, SC/Ramblers were able to compete with much more prolific nameplates. After all, they were intended for NHRA F/Stock drag racing class.
If you’re interested at looking into this fully restored Hurst AMC S/Rambler this here is the place to go. It has only 39,040 miles on its odometer and its price tag has been arranged in a way that every mile it’s passed warrants $1.6 or thereabouts. In other words, this rare AMC’s muscle is available for $64,900. If that seems a bit too much, consider this as well. It’s number 3 of the first 10 produced models initially used for testing. That’s got to be worth some extra cash, don’t you think? Oh, and did I mention it has fully restored interior as well? All in all, this is as mint as it goes for 45-year old car – especially for AMC. Be quick for the clock is ticking.
UPDATE: Car is now available here for $59,900.
