1966 Rambler Marlin Fastback
Chassis no. A6KF97U100892
"A muscle car from American Motors?" That is what everyone was asking in 1965. 'Distinctive and Different' best described the AMC Rambler Marlin since there was nothing else like it on the road when it debuted in 1965. Dick Teague is responsible for this radical fastback design which evolve from a prototype known as the Tarpan. By 1966 the design had received subtle interior and exterior changes including the grille, which now has 13 very thin aluminum vertical stips behind the large horizontal color bar.

It was given a base price of $3100 and went on sale in March of 1965. During its introductory year, 10,327 examples were sold. There were many options available making the vehicle customizable to the users' desires. The options ranged from engine and transmission choices, to air conditioning, AM/FM radio, power windows, and more.

This particular 1966 Marlin is quite rare with the optional high performance 270 horse power, 327 cubic-inch motor, with the four barrel carburetor and the extremely rare option of a four speed manual transmission. This car comes factory with power steering and power brakes. Other options include bucket seats, factory tachometer, vinyl top, turbo cast wheel covers and a twin grip differential. It is estimated that there were less than 200 produced with this performance package. This car would be a welcome addition to any car collector that is looking for the unusual yet desirable muscle car.
