Chrysler acquired this brand in 1987. 45546 Eagle Premiers were produced in the 1988 Model Year. This was a significant increase in for auto sales for former AMC dealers.

Ricardo Montalban - 1975 Chrysler Cordoba Commercial

Ricardo Montalban - Chrysler Cordoba Commercial Nov. 25, 1920 - Jan 15, 2009 RIP This is the commercial where most of us mistakenly thought Ricardo said "Rich Corinthian Leather" when he actually said "Soft Corinthian Leather". It was a marketing term invented by Chrysler to help sell cars and who can forget it? The commercial, itself was very well conceived. If you listen, through the distorted audio, you hear Spanish guitar and orchestra playing along with Ricardo's wonderfully accented sales pitch. When you bought this car, you weren't just buying a car! You were buying the luxury to be swallowed in seats upholstered with "Soft Corinthian Leather"... You were buying a Cor-doa-bah! Disclaimer: It has been recently pointed out that that car in this commercial is really a 1976 and the seats are cloth, not Corinthian leather. So much for continuity.

1966 AMC Rambler Classic station wagon TV commercial

During Mitt Romney's campaign to win the Michigan primary in February 2012, the Romney campaign bought one of my vintage AMC clips for use in their primary TV commercial. (Mitt's spot is called "Growing Up." You can find it here on YouTube.) If you watch the spot, the second shot shows a Rambler wagon pulling into a driveway. That's the clip his people bought from me. At this time, AMC was in big trouble. When Roy Abernethy took over after Mitt's dad, George Romney, left American Motors, he tried to compete directly with The Big Three in size and horsepower. He lost big time. This no-nonsense spot acknowledges that AMC knew the American public had dismissed it as a boring, economy car company. The goal was to get them to reconsider American Motors. I thought I'd take the opportunity to show you the whole TV commercial. It's been digitized and color-corrected with amore. I'd love to have this wagon today. It's appropriately named: a Classic!
