'66 Rambler American... now that brings back memories. My dad had the '65
American, a 220 with the same 3-speed tranny. (Why does 196 cubic inches
stick in my mind?)

He ended up replacing it with a '73 Plymouth Duster with 3-speed and the 198
cube slant six. Years later, I went to trade it and had dealers swear that
there was no such size engine.
