1961 Ambassador Cross Country Station Wagon
~~~  ~~~  ~~~  ~~~

AMC had built much of its success on the sale of station wagons. In fact, station wagons comprised nearly 40% of AMC's total production in the early 1960s -- an achievement unmatched by any other automobile manufacturer. 

The Ambassador was AMC's top-of-the-line automobile, and the company was pleasantly surprised to find that the Ambassador station wagon proved to be an incredibly popular "suburban necessity" that year. In fact, over 27% of all Ambassadors sold in 1961 were station wagons! 

1961 also heralded a major design change for the Ambassador, and if you think that this car looks somewhat like a Studebaker, you won't be the first person to notice the similarity.
