I Love my AMC Ambassador. I got it several years ago and it came with an extra freshly rebuilt engine. The extra engine is a 327 AMC complete with intake manifold, valve covers, new motor mounts, new starter, oil pan, fuel pump, water pump and distributor (no carburetor) and sits on a new 4 wheel engine stand in my garage. This AMC Ambassador 990 4 door wagon has a 327 AMC engine with power steering, power brakes, Air Conditioning, Automatic Transmission, Tilt Steering Column and Power Windows. I drove this 990 4 door wagon for a few years it was fun and it worked great! One day about a year ago she would not start. Someone looked at her and said the fuel pump needs to be replaced. I never got around to replacing the pump and now I could use the money, so that is why my AMC is for sale. I have an $8,500 appraisal for this car that I have included in the photos also some of the appraisal language is as follows:
We have inspected and evaluated the vehicle described below for the purpose of an estimation of the vehicles value.

This 1966 AMC Ambassador 990 Station Wagon has been refinished/restyled by Count's Kustom's in the very popular “Kulture Rod” or Rock-A-Billy Style". Restorations and/or preservations of this style are a Classic Car Art form dating back to the 1950's and well into the 60's. Over the past 5-10 years the style has shown a huge comeback with a large & growing group of enthusiasts. Not a traditional super shiny or flashy restoration as one would think, more a simple fun, clean, impressionistic and affordable alternative. Desirable and Collectable.
