The 1957 Rambler Custom, like this one seen this past summer at the Buffalo History Museum’s nnual classic car event, was available with either a six-cylinder or V-8 engine. The six, which AMC called “…the thriftiest power plant on the American scene,” was a 195.6 cu. in. unit, putting out 125 hp (or 135 hp with the optional power pack), while the 190-hp V-8 checked in at 250 cu. in. There was also a 327 V-8, available only in the Rebel model. Curiously, one thing you couldn’t get with the ’57 Rambler was a two-door. AMC offered four-door sedans and wagons in the Deluxe, Super, and Custom series, and four-door hardtops as a Custom and — surprisingly — a Custom Cross Country station wagon.
