AllMusic Review by

Ben Vaughn has always been an excellent roots-rocker and Rambler '65 is another worthy addition to his catalog. Vaughn recorded the entire album in his old 1965 Rambler, cramming himself and an eight-track tape-recorder into the car, which functioned as a makeshift studio. While the car studio is nothing more than a gimmick, designed to snag a few magazine articles, the music is hardly trivial, demonstrating his ability to recreate the sound of '50s and '60s rock & roll and country with ease, as well as his talent for clever, memorable hooks that keep tradition alive without being enslavened to the past.
