1958 marked new beginnings for a name that had been on the American automotive scene since 1901. Having gone through many incarnations, Rambler was now its own brand as American Motors had retired both the Nash and Hudson brands with the 1957 model year. Under the Nash banner since 1951, Rambler had made a name for itself as stylish, solid, and economical to buy and own. With fresh styling, Rambler set out to conquer the economy car market. For 1958, the full-size Rambler was offered in three series, Ambassador, Rebel and the Six, which was offered in both Super and Custom trim levels. New this year was up-to-date front-end styling featuring a pleasant and bright design up front with quad headlights as standard; to the rear, designers incorporated a pair of mini fins above the taillights. All Rambler Six models featured four doors in sedan, hardtop, and the very popular Cross Country station wagon line. These base models were a bit austere in the use of chrome and brightwork, but their engineering with the "unit-body" construction was sturdy, weight-saving and provided plenty of room for the jet-age family going places. Power came from the 195.6-cubic-inch overhead valve six-cylinder engine that was surprisingly peppy while being a bit stingy on gas consumption. A wide palette of colors was presented with complementing interior trim choices. 1958 was a miserable year for America's automakers, but not for Rambler. With a push for economy, sales shot up for wagons, especially the Super Cross Country model which experienced a growth of 87.8 percent, going from 14,083 units for 1957 to 26,452 for 1958.

This attractive little wagon is cute as a bug, solid as a rock and just a lot of fun to own and drive. It is finished in Robin's Egg Blue and is accented with Deep Sea Blue metallic on the roof and greenhouse areas. Those comfortable seats are upholstered with durable and colorful two-tone blue vinyl and silver piping. It is appointed with AMC's famous "Weather-Eye" heating and defrosting unit, original push-button AM radio and optional clock. Full disc wheel covers on all four corners, a fresh set of wide whitewalls and a must-have chrome plated roof rack shows this wagon is ready for some great adventures while traveling in style. The trusty inline six comes to life with the turn of the key and the three-speed manual transmission slips through the gears with ease. Featuring the height of mid-century modern styling, great eye appeal and dependable touring capabilities, what better way to see the USA than in your Cross Country Rambler Station Wagon.
