Car Show Outtake: 1967 Ambassador Convertible – Only 1,268 Others On The Planet

(first posted 11/3/2013)      As today is the last day of Independents’ Week, let’s look at another rare AMC. Jason Shafer showed us an amazing ’68 Ambassador sedan, but have any of you seen the elusive convertible? Offered only in ’67, the model only found 1,269 buyers despite quite an attractive look. This one was at the 2012 Maple City Cruise Night in Monmouth, IL.

Sadly I only got a single shot. I haven’t seen one since, and I’ve probably been to over 100 shows since August of ’12. This one looked to be a work in progress, with missing rocker trim–but the fasteners were still there. Despite that, it was quite a looker! I’d rather have some factory wheel covers and whitewalls though…
