OK just got back from Reno picking up the Ambassador. After picking it up was going through some repair papers the owner gave me. In the packet I found the original window sticker, original bill of sale and the build sheet for the car. Also while there she brought out the original throw pillows that were only given out with the DLP model and they match the interior perfectly.

Will post some PICS soon. Was just able to get it in the garage (very tight with 4 cars in a three car garage) before we got wacked with 7" of fresh snow. Car still dirty from trip will try to get out later this week supposed to warm up. Did get it running though sounds great. Leaks a little but nothing bad. Join a facebook page for AMC's and they are a great bunch also have some of the part's I need and they are all NOS. Score!

Thanks for all the replies. Friday was able to get Magna Flows installed. Went from a single 1 3/4 to dual 2 1/4 bet it breathing easy now. Sounds good too nice for only having a mild cam in it.

Sweet Rambler! My next project will likely be my Ambassador. It's a 72 and it will be a NASCAR clone of the Rebel. Blue, white, red, paint scheme of the number 16 car.

I love the interior of your car. Quite different, even for those days.
