RealRides of WNY - 1959 Rambler

This 1959 Rambler Super is one of the many interesting cars in the collection of Gowanda’s Steven Botsford. Originally a California car, he bought it about 12 years ago. The Super four-door was Rambler’s best-selling car for MY 1959 with a starting MSRP of $2,268; it was also available as a two-door sedan, and a four-door hardtop or station wagon. This one’s got an inline six with the optional pushbutton automatic transmission (three-on-the-tree was standard). The Rambler’s interior was something special, which they really hammered home with a full page in their brochure (see bottom of page). There were two engines offered in the ’59 Super: the straight six (195.6cid), and a 250cid Rebel V8. Steven’s car was photographed at the 8th Annual Mt. St. Mary Super Cruise, held this past August in Kenmore.
