Rambler Dan’s 1968 Rambler American Parts List

    Note: I DO NOT SELL PARTS! These numbers are provided for the benefit of owners. If you can’t find the parts you need at a local retailer, see the Planet Houston AMC Vendor List. The AMC Rambler Club also publishes an extensive list of vendors.

    This list is based on parts I’ve purchased and used successfully, info from catalogs and contributions from other owners.
    I am no stickler for authenticity, and will happily substitute a part made for another car if it works. Parts I know are not OEM spec are marked with a dagger (†). Finally, I make no guarantee as to accuracy.
    Any additions or corrections are welcome.
    Also see the lists at Dan Meyer’s and Matt Brodeur’s sites.
