Re: [AMC-List] 65 Rambler 990 convertible prototype?



Personally, I like the 1978 appraisal that was notarized in 1980. I also 
find it hard to believe that it was appraised at about $8,900 in 1980 (does 
seem reasonable to a little low for a current appraisal). Also, all of the 
big convertibles were 5 passenger so why make a big deal of that? Also, why 
would AMC build a prototype for a 1966 model when 1966 was pretty much the 
same as 1965 with different tail lights and other trim differences? There 
are a lot of inconsistencies between the eBay listing and what's on the 
website for this car. It looks like a nice car but this just smells wrong 
(anyone besides me think all of the handwriting samples look too much alike?).
