The problem with sensible people like George Romney though is that they are often sensible to a fault.  Like Henry Ford, I think Romney failed to see that people often want something more than cheap, practical transportation. " He was smart enough that he probably would have adapted, but I don't think you'd have ever seen something like the Mustang originate under a company run by George Romney.  He deserves credit for the '63 Classic and probably the '64 American, which were attractive, competitive and successful vehicles, but a company cannot profit solely on low-priced products.

The Rambler Rebel was produced under during his reign. 327 V-8, 4 barrel, solid lifters.

62 Classic 400
Past owned:
1976 Hornet

I was there. First AMC show for me. I wore the t- shirt for 10 years or so. Stinking hot,  even for a PA. boy.
