Lot #936.1 - Built in 1969 in collaboration with Hurst Performance - the Hurst SC/Rambler. With 1,512 built, it was probably the only production model made and promoted for a specific drag racing class, the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) F/Stock class. Each Hurst SC/Rambler came equipped with the 390cid/315hp AMC V8 engine from the AMX that was mated to a 4-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter, a 3.54:1 "Twin-Grip" limited slip differential, heavy-duty brakes with front discs and a sway bar, as well as strengthened drivetrain and body components. American Motors called on Hurst to develop a "Stock Car" (SC) meaning "original factory" production model, often nicknamed "Scrambler", to make a strong impact in the compact muscle market segment. Available only as a 2 door hardtop, the interior came in standard gray vinyl upholstered reclining bucket seats, but with red, white, and blue headrests, as well as a Sun tachometer strapped to the steering column. Outside, the SC/Ramblers came with the wildest factory paint jobs ever put on a muscle car. It also featured a box-type hood scoop with "390 CU. IN." and "AIR" in large letters on both sides of it. If someone missed seeing it, a blue arrow on the hood also pointed towards the air intake. The Scrambler came only in two types of red, white, and blue color schemes ("A" or "W' trims) with no other options available, with the exception of an AM radio. Most SC/Ramblers took extensive abuse as they were raced hard and there are stories of cars being sold with their time slips passing along with the vehicle. The car seen here is one of the 324 built in paint scheme "B". A beautiful restoration with original body panels and outstanding paint. The 390/315hp engine with a T10 4-speed made these cars a terror on the street and strip. Don't miss the chance to own one of these. They are the American Dream Team.
