The story goes that AMC executives loved the Hurst SC/Rambler but were a little concerned the wild hood graphics might be too over the top and hamper sales so a second paint scheme ("B") which was more sedate was developed. When it was all over (first available March 1969) 1,512 were made (the initial run was to be 500, then 1000 and finally 1500) of which 342 were the "B" paint scheme.

Actor James Garner's race team AIR (American International Racing) fielded 10 cars at Baja.

8 were 2 wheel drive
2 were 4 wheel drive

The Hurst SC/Rambler first made it's appearance at the NY Auto Show in 1969. The only difference between that car and the production cars were the wheels. Instead of the entire wheel being painted blue, as seen on this production car, the "spokes" of the wheel had a "brushed aluminum" appearance.

Beautiful drag car. These Scramblers were light and fast.
