New to the forum and Ramblers in general!

Post

Hi, I'm new to the forum and to Ramblers.  I recently acquired a '63 American, the most basic model.  I apologize for not knowing more about it; I'm a long time gearhead, but more comfortable with other makes.  My wife drove a '62 American way back when we were in college and I've always had a soft spot for them; when this one became available I thought it'd be a blast to pick up.  It's in great shape, but I have too many cars!  So, I've listed it in the cars and parts for sale.  I do like this little car, though.  Two door sedan (post), really clean body; just a little rust behind each of the front fenderwells.  The grille and trim are terrific, and this will make a great little car.  The interior is worn, but the gauge panel is basically in perfect shape.  If I ever do get to building it (it's in line behind 4 other cars), I look forward to creating something really cool.

I'm a retired industrial arts teacher (31 years), and my retirement business is making custom shifter knobs for peoples' cars.  The business has grown enough that I do only wholesale work, so I'm not really plugging myself here; my username pretty much says it all, just add .com and you'll find me!  I live in northeast Wyoming.  I'll explore and enjoy the forum; I know I'll find plenty of inspiration for the Rambler here.

Regards,

My first car (back in about 1966) was a 1961 Austin Mini… fun but somewhat troublesome. My second car in about 1968 was a 1963 Rambler American 330, sidevalve 6cyl, 4 door, 3 on the tree. I LOVED that car. Drove it anywhere anytime, rallied it regularly and even painted it red/white/blue! Traded it towards a really sweet 6cyl, automatic, '68 Javelin. I'd happily have another R/W/B '63 American if I had the space!

On second thought……
