Sept. 19, 1963 - The baby American Rambler has become a smooth teenager. The smallest car in the compact American Motors Corporation lineup has undergone its first complete change since it arrived in 1950. The car has lost its boxy look. It is, at 177 inches, 4 inches longer, and the wheelbase has been stretched 6 inches to 106 inches. The car is an inch and a half narrower, at 68½ inches, but the longer frame, combined with innovations such as curved glass windows and a slimmer sloping roof line, add nearly a foot of hip room to interior passenger space. The company calls it a six-passenger vehicle.
