1967, 1968, 1969 AMC Ambassador Specifications

The 1967, 1968, and 1969 AMC Ambassador was a smooth, powerful, well-proportioned sedan that didn't look like anything else on the road. Despite somewhat disappointing sales, the 1967-1969 AMC Ambassador remains a handsome example of Richard Teague's styling genius.
