Definitely kilometers on the speedometer! A US mile speedometer reads 0-12 instead of 0-20. Same deal though, add a zero to the number...  Some Canadian models may have used that same speedometer, I think. Kenosha also made some kits for export which may have had them.

Canada didn't go metric until the 70's so the 64 speedometer was in MPH.

You might want to contact the AMC clubs in Finland ( http://www.amccf.com/ - https://www.amccf.com/) and/or the Swedish Rambler club ( http://www.facebook.com/groups/36774550822/ - https://www.facebook.com/groups/36774550822/ ... you can use Google Translate on this page).
They would be cheaper to ship parts from than the US, if they can find them.

Again, you have a Belgian built Rambler-Renault, and from what little info I can find they used a four speed transmission. I'm not sure if that is just a typo or mistake on one site that has been spread over the internet or is a fact. I'm trying to contact someone in the French club to find out, also if the suspension in the rear was changed for the four speed, since Rambler didn't have a four speed until 1966, and that for the V-8s -- the Borg-Warner T-10. Some early Mexican vehicles used the T-10 with a six, mostly Jeeps or HD trucks that used the AMC six produced in Mexico. The bell housings for those (and info on them) are very hard to find!

There should be a data plate on the latch edge of the driver's door. That should verify that it's a Rambler-Renault or imported from the US. Some were imported from the US by small dealerships in other parts of the country -- it's possible one made it's way to Russia.
