Finished this one up the day the board disappeared. It's a Jo-Han promo re-issue from the '80s, it was molded in a non-stock color, so I had this factory color mixed up at the local auto body supply. Algiers Rose Copper metallic, with a brown/tan interior. These little Ramblers sure had a bunch of chrome trim on them! Chrome was shot, so bumpers and wheel covers are Spaz-Stix.

Very nice. Looks like you took extra time polishing and fitting the 'glass' too.

Very nice! Unusual subject, and I love the colors. Sure could use a mirror or two, though...

In 1962, my friends father ordered a Rambler Classic, just like your model. At that time, it was a rare color. Your model looks great, and brings back long ago memories.

Super nice Rambler  , Alan !

 

I'm pretty sure that exterior rear view mirrors were still optional until circa 1963 or 1964 ...
