1966 Rambler Classic 550
I have just recently purchased a 1966 Rambler Classic 550 with a 232 in-line 6 cylinder. I was actually able to drive it to my brother's house. It was quite an adventure driving it as the brakes were not working well. It has a rebuilt engine that sounds good and it has a two-speed automatic. Appears the automatic came from the factory. It has d2 and d1 on the shift column. The Rambler also has an air cooled torque converter. It is a light blue but I don't think it is the balboa aqua. It looks as though it had been painted over once. The color is pretty close to original. It would be hard to see the difference when opening the door or hood to see if the jambs were a different color. Once the brakes are worked out and the upholstery covered on the seats, and of course the tires changed out, it should make for a nice ride. I will be using it as a daily driver. It has all 4 hubcaps and a chrome badge on the car that says giorgio. It also has the badging 232-6. The word Rambler on the trunk and the word classic on the back. Complete words with no letters missing. Some other word on each fender. There are some old parts out of the rebuilt engine in the trunk. Parts like the pistons and camshaft and timing chain and even an old distributor cap. The brakes are "real man" brakes. No power assist. It doesn't look like the front bench seat folds back. It does have power steering. It also has a two barrel carter carburetor on it. Vacuum lines to run the wipers. A rubber bag that is used to clean the windshield. Odometer reads 48 thousand and some change. No tilt steering and no radio. Came from the factory that way. It does have an ashtray but no lighter. The lighter socket is there, just no lighter. I will post more information as more information is available. What does the giorgio stand for? If someone can answer that I would appreciate it.
