RealRides of WNY - 1965 Rambler

Ironically, as things would turn out in another dozen years or so, if this 1965 Rambler Classic 660 had been purchased new in Europe, it would have been badged as a Rambler Renault Classic (see the brochure cover below), having been assembled from a CKD kit (completely knocked-down) in one of Renault’s Belgian assembly plants. (Renault and American Motors had a sort of merger in 1979, with the French automaker acquiring almost a 25 percent interest in AMC.) In the U.S., the 660 was the mid-range Classic, above the 550 and, you guessed it, below the 770. We came across this nice example last month at a car show at the Botanical Gardens in South Buffalo.
