The Marlin I

A 65-66 style Marlin with an Ambassador front end . Note the Hood Ornament. Looks to be 1 inch wide and about 3 inches long . Also no emblems on front fenders .

I have ran into someone that had information on this car . The Marlin front end was cut off at the frame close to bottom of fire wall then a Ambassador whole front clip assembly was welded into place . The wheel base was increase due to the wheel opening being farther a head on the Ambassador compared to the Marlin/Classic front end. The motor was set back farther in the frame , it was position behind front cross member , making the steering lighter . Didn't handle that good because the weight was moved farther back.
