Ragtop Ramblers are few and far between, but the '65 American was one of the best. Too bad it lacked some sporty features that buyers craved, the reason sales were few and far between, too.
The 1965 Rambler American 440 was the most affordable convertible at the time.

For 1964, however, all Rambler Americans became much prettier thanks to a six-inch-longer wheel-base (now 106) and all-new unit bodies with simple, well-tailored lines and curved side glass. Led by the top-line 440-series convertible, they were arguably the year's most attractive Detroit compacts, and sales soared to a record 160,000-plus.
The 1965 Rambler American 440 was not available with
popular, sporty features like bucket seats.
