This 1966 AMC Marlin with original 327ci engine connected to original, and very rare, 4 speed manual transmission and original, and very rare, rear slip differential, was imported into the UK from Texas in May 2015 by a company in Scotland.
This is a very rare car indeed. Only 4547 Marlin's were produced in 1966 however only 299 of these were 4 speed manual transmission cars with the large 327ci engine. According to the Marlin Auto Club ( marlinautoclub.com) they are only aware of 10 such cars still in existence today.
