73 Matador 72 Ambassador Wagons
12/15/12 at 18:10:38
 
A buddy of mine has a couple of wagons for sale.
Both have good bodies with the 72 Ambassador having top surface rust.
The 73 Matador is a 304 with a bad tranny. ( will not move??)
It has 126,000 miles and is a very nice car in/out.
He said the engine runs/sounds good.
The 72 Ambassador was bought for extra parts.
It has a 360 V2 and a good tranny for the Matador.
He said the 360 starts and runs but backfires through the carb. ( timing chain??)
The rear window in the Ambassador is broke and the car is weathered inside.
It has a good body with top surface rust that's not too bad.
He has a title for the 73 Matador and NO title for the 73 Ambassador.
He wants $1000 for the pair.
The Matador has an AMO decal on the back window along with a Nash club decal.
This car was well cared for and would make a great Pro touring ride.
I have a few more photos if needed.
Any questions call Terry @ 540-678-1026
The cars are located in Clearbrook, VA 22624

Blown trans = excuse to swap in a 360/4spd or 4.0Lstroker/5spd.

The owner has dropped to $800 for the pair. Pick these up before they go to the crusher.
If you do the math...that's probably scrap price.
