RealRides of WNY - 1963 Ambassador

RealRides of WNY - 1963 Ambassador

This 1963 Rambler Ambassador 990 isn’t quite as rare as yesterday’s Torino GT RealRide: 14,019 of them were built. But I wonder how many of them had the optional front bucket seats, console, and floor shifter that this one has. (Finding a two-door 990 would be a real coup; only 1,764 were produced.) The 990 was Rambler’s top-of-the-line for MY 1963, and all Ambassadors came standard with American Motors’ 327cid V8. This one appears to be wearing a Corsican Gold over Valencia Ivory two-tone. We saw it late last month at the Fun Fest Car Show in Fillmore. I know this is the first appearance for Fillmore in RRofWNY, and I believe it might also be the first ’63 Ambassador 990 we’ve come across.
