Hi Bob, At the last Kenosha Historical show, I bought two NOS fuse
panels that looked like they were SC/Rambler fuse panels. There is no
part number on the fuse panels, it is only on the box or bag they come
in. In checking in the AMC parts book, they are listed as 67/68 fuse
panels part number 318 6900. The correct part number for a 69 only
fuse panel is 319 4650. The position of the plugs and the wire colors
that hook up to those plugs are identical between the two. The
difference is two nine amp fuses have been changed to fourteen amp
fuses in 1969. The fuse size embossed on just those two fuse
locations are now 14A. This opens up the number of useable fuse
panels, because it is possible to use any fuse panel from any AMC
vehicle in 67, 68, or 69. You just won't have the correct marking
under two of the fuses on 67/68. Regards, JIm

New Discovery Sc/Rambler Tailight housing Detail (MINUTIA)

This is an excerpt from an e-mail I recieved from Jim McKee:

I am restoring the taillight housings on my high serial number original SC/
Ramber. One is chromate coated all over and the other one is chrome
that has been blasted where the black was painted on. This is the
first time the taillight housings have been out of the body. Perhaps
they were running out of the chromate housings and just substituted a
chrome one. I have no other reason for this anomolie. Regards, Jim

I saw the zinc Chromated tailight housings on one I my Sc's . It the goldish tint like a carburator body would have . I believe the intent was for all the Sc/Rambler's to have the non chromed housing to assist in painting the black .
BUT , Jim found where they must of run out of the run the correct intended part and substituted ...How you use this imformation is up to you !
