Perhaps trying to shake the image that all of its cars were compacts, the brochure description of the 1967 AMC Ambassador DPL convertible called it “A luxury convertible that lets you put four-on-the-floor and three-in-the-rear.” Standard engine on the DPL convertible (and optional on all other models) was AMC’s 290 cu.in. V-8, which the fender badge indicates is under the hood of today’s RealRide. Optional were two different 343 V-8s — a 2-bbl rated at 235 hp, and a 280-hp 4-bbl. The four-on-the-floor was available with any of the V-8 engines. Came across this one a few weeks ago at the 67thAnnual Lake Erie Region Antique Automobile Club of America Car Show in the Village Green Park in Elma.
