Great link about the Slant Six. My dad had a 1960 Rambler American station wagon. He was always proud of the fact that it would get 28 mpg with the manual overdrive engaged. This was before mpg was a concern back then. I'll verify the mpg and the size of motor it had next time I talk to my dad.Originally posted by Michael
I was not sure but thought it might be a Rambler, Both were good cars except the Valiant from that era had probably one of the best engines ever produced (The slant six) Here's a interesting article about it.
That car has well over 300,000 miles on it when I sold it and the engine was in sad need of a complete rebuild. I had rebuilt the front end numerous times and gosh I cannot for the live of me remember how many brake jobs I did on that car. Still overall the 2nd best car I have ever owned, My 340 Duster that I still own and bought new is the best.Originally posted by Michael
It had finally died from old age and I sold it to a kid down the street who rebuilt everything on the car and he is still using blue magic everyday.
