Abandoned Car of the Week

The 1955 Chevrolet was a turning point for the manufacturer, the first successful Chevrolet with a V8 engine. Though Chevrolet had produced another car with a V-8, the 1938, it had remained in production for only a year. The '55's looks, power and engineering made it a critical success.

Abandoned Car of the Week

The two-door Rambler Marlin was built by the American Motors Corp. (AMC) from 1965 to 1967. Marlins were fastback versions of the mid-sized two-door hardtop Rambler Classic. AMC aimed it at buyers wanting a sporty fastback that was roomy and comfortable, contrasting it with the smaller Barracuda and Mustang fastbacks that had arrived a year earlier. The Marlin, following the muscle car launches of the 1960s, was intended to outflank competitors as a product they did not offer. The car could be ordered with a 327 cubic inch V-8 with a 0-to-60 time of about 10 seconds. This stripped-down example was found in eastern North Carolina. (Photos by Jim Meachen)

From right, a 1949 Chevrolet, a early-60s Chevrolet Corvair and a 1955 Ford are lined up in a field of abandoned cars. If you find yourself on historic Route 66 near Erick, Okla., you might want to check the field of used-up cars, trucks and tractors. Watch out for the weeds loaded with stickers!
