Jim Keller's Marlin Pages

The Marlin Club will keep Jim's original Marlin Pages active with the links below. 


These are the web pages created by Jim Keller - known as "the Marlin Guy".  Until August 2009 they could be found on Jim's web site <www.marlincarsite.com> and were known by Marlin owners everywhere as "Your internet connection to the largest source of Marlin information in the World".  Jim has shut down his site but provided his web pages for the Marlin Auto Club to use for the benefit of Marlin owners.  The information and material presented here represents the material on Marlin automobiles provided by Jim with limited editing to remove broken links and information already included on the Marlin Auto Club web site.   Editor, Sep 2009


Editor Note: Updates were made to the following articles in January 2016:  Air Conditioning Conversion, Alternator Conversion, Disc Brake Conversion, and Trunions.
Welcome

This is dedicated to all of those people who think the Rambler Marlin is a really swell car ... and all those people who haven't figured this out yet. Whether you are an expert mechanic, old-car buff, or complete and utter novice, I hope that you learn something while here.

I personally fell into the world of Marlins about Twenty two years ago. With this information you should able to buy a Marlin and have the confidence to keep it running. I hope that I can do the same for someone else.

These pages have two purposes: To provide information and source material to current and future Marlin owners regarding maintenance and restoration; and To gather and share historical information regarding the development and production of the Rambler / AMC Marlin. To this end, I have included features such as literature from AMC and the general media; parts sources; technical information; pictures of factory and modifications.
