Wheels in the Grass

The folks at Rambler, led by their chairman and future governor of Michigan George Romney, were smart enough to see that the light at the end of the automotive sales tunnel was from the headlights of smaller cars. They promptly reintroduced the compact Rambler American for 1958, and were the toast of the town. Originally available only as a two-door sedan (including a three-passenger business version), a two-door wagon was added for 1959. This brown and white example, with a nifty continental kit hanging off the back, was photographed a while back in Holland. Starting price for a Super like this one was a mere $1,874.
