This Rambler 4 HP Runabout is a replica known produced in 1960. It was the work of the Gaslight Motors Corporation, of Lathrup Village, Michigan, who contracted the construction to American Air Products Corporation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which also built the 'Merry Olds,' a scaled-down curved-dash Oldsmobile, during the same period.

This Gaslight Motors Rambler is a full scale replication with a hand-crafted wooden body and powered by a four-horsepower, single-cylinder air-cooled Clinton engine located under the seat. An automatic clutch connects to a two-speed transmission with reverse. Final drive was by single chain to the rear wheels. There is a 12-volt electrical system, with starter and generator, full lighting, and turn signals. A folding top was standard equipment. Brakes were internal, expanding on the rear wheels. Four-wheel brakes were optional which would render them legal in Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, New Jersey, and Maryland. New Jersey also required the optional high-low beam headlamps, while California insisted on the windshield-and-electric-wipers accessory package.

The current owner acquired this Gaslight Motors Rambler around 2000 from William Chapman of Wauseon, Ohio. It is finished in gloss black with white accent stirping. The seat is upholstered in black vinyl. The car has the lighting package, parts of which appear to be sourced from Harley-Davidson. Neither the windshield nor the four-wheel-brake option is installed.
