Hooniverse Wagon Wednesday Extravaganza – Three AMC Wagons on eBay

Welcome to Hooniverse Wagon Wednesdays. It has been at least a couple of weeks since I did a Wagon Wednesday Posting, so I am trying to make it up to you, our faithful Hooniverse fans with a Wagon Wednesday Extravaganza. And look, here are three interesting AMC Wagons available now on eBay….

Let’s start with this absolutely wonderful 1964 Rambler Classic 660 Cross Country Wagon. According to the listing, this is an unmolested and original wagon, showing only around 70,000 miles. This Cross Country Wagon is equipped with the original AMC six, and a three-speed manual with a column shift. Among the other things that this car came equipped with include an original set of seat covers, optional overdrive, and the original roof rack. While it looks like a dressed-up Rambler, its actually pretty basic with no power steering, no power brakes, and no radio what so ever. The paint has some flaws, but so what? Just look at it.

The bidding is up to $4,200, with a little more than a day to go on the auction. Is this car worth the money? See the listing here.


If the Cross Country is just a bit too big for you, how about this 1964 Rambler American 330 Wagon? This wagon belonged to a little old lady in West Texas, and is equipped with an AMC Flathead Six (The last year offered by AMC!), 3-speed manual – again with a column shift, and an under dash Sears Air Conditioning unit. The seller upgraded the look by using late-model AMC Aluminum Rims (they actually look great), and installed a later model air conditioning compressor. This car shows a little over 97,000 miles, and it looks fantastic.

The bidding is up to $2,900, with over 5 days to go at this writing. This will go up a bit as the week goes on, but by how much? See the listing here.


OK, those two AMC Wagons are not so iconic, but this last one certainly is. It is a last year (1980) AMC Pacer Wagon, one of about only 1,600 produced for the model year. This car is loaded compared with the other two wagons, including Automatic, Factory Air Conditioning, Power Steering and Brakes, and Magnum 500 wheels, which I never thought was offered on the Pacer. This wagon only shows a little over 32,000 miles, and with as little as 20 hours to go, the bidding is up to $4,700. See the listing here.

OK then, what do each of these wagons have in common besides being produced in Kenosha, Wisconsin? They are all six cylinder powered, they are all wagons of some sort, and they are all no reserve auctions. Which one is your favorite?

    Boy, AMC had ugly speedometers in the early 1960s with that fan-shaped layout. Both of the '60s wagons are worthy at the price, but also screamingly dull with the stock engines and three-on-three shifters. However, at these prices, there are plenty of hot-up opportunities without busting the bank account. Do check these babies out for rust, though.
    Although the Pacer wagon looks better than the hatch and this one is thankfully devoid of the fake wood, it still has the awful '78+ front end styling. It too will be dull to drive, and the price is now up to $5,200. Blech on this blue Toastmaster-on-wheels.

      I always thought that the late Pacers' taller hood and grille balanced the extra mass of the wagon back nicely. And the fact that resulted from stuffing an optional V-8 in there makes me like it all the more. I can't say that a Pacer is very high on my list, but I were to get one, it would have to be a wagon. I see a Pacer hatchback and I go "gaaaah!"; I see a wagon and I say "hmm, neat car."

      close to the speedometer, do you know what the "weather eye" is underneath?

      1. dukeisduke Avatar

        Weather Eye was Rambler's name for the heater.

      nevermind, I found it. Strange location for it, as it's part of the HVAC. (minus the "AC")

    I am impressed that these can be picked up for so little.
    I personally like the Rambler 660, mostly for the paint. What would you call that, deep mint?

    Definitely the 330.
    Looking at it, I imagine this is how my little sister feels looking at pictures of puppies.

    As someone who grew up riding around in a Rambler (a '66 American 440 with Borg-Warner automatic and A/C), it's always amazed me that they continued building flatheads into the '60s. I wouldn't be surprised to see an Ambassador with wooden artillery wheels. Speaking of wheels, just about any old Rambler looks good with a set of those late-model AMC slot mags.
    BTW, Jim, that compressor on the white '64 wagon would be the original type – it's a York, the same one that our '66 came with from Kenosha.

      According to the seller, they installed a compact A/C Compressor, but there is no picture for it.

    I didn't know anyone made a flathead engine as late as 1964.

    1. dukeisduke Avatar

      Only Rambler. It's funny, because in some ways they were ahead (unit body construction, curved side glass, three-speed autos in smaller cars), and then in some ways they were behind (the flathead). I still miss our Rambler sometimes. It was a 4-door, Frost White with a blue interior.

    Oh geeze! Gotta love the old vacuum motor operated wipers with the douche bag (literally) windshield washer bottle on the green one. They were still way behind in a few areas besides the flathead engine.

    If the 330 has an upgraded A/C compressor, why didn't the owner install a belt to spin it? Hmmmm?

    1. VolvoNut Avatar

      or any belts at all?

    That Rambler Classic 660 is lovely. I don't care for the facelifted Pacers.

    I'll take the American too. Pleasant styling and air conditioning. Although a smaller car, it shared it's doors with the Classic.
