The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a
great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog
company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's
"Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something
a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a
small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had
never seen anything like it.
This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst
to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government
regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car
advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a
picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist
Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John
Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.
Part 1-Motor Sports Reunion Trans Am Qualifying Race, Laguna Seca, 11:30 AM, August 17, 2013
Part 1-first 17 minutes from Go Pro 3 Dash Cam of 9th place starter, Ken
Epsman, in the #2, Penske built, 1970/71 Javelin...in 1971, a 2nd team, led
by Roy Woods, campaigned factory Javelins, together with
Penske...Graciously, Penske gave this particular '70 Javelin to Roy Woods'
team, who campaigned this car, rebodied as a 1971 Javelin, in the '71 Trans
Am series. Additionally, Penske shared with Woods all the Javelin R&D work
Penske's team produced during the 1970 season. Driver's of this famous
Trans-Am Javelin include Mark Donohue and Peter Revson, for Penske. During
''71, again Peter Revson, with Tony Adamowicz, Vic Elford, George Follmer,
and Roy Woods himself. The following year, Roy Woods again drove, teaming
with George Follmer, the latter going on to win the 1972 Trans Am
1970 amc gremlin road race car testing @ HPR 12-27-13
out testing my AMC Gremlin road race car @ High Plains Raceway, Byers
Car was originally built for the 24 hours of Lemons / chump car endurance
Although the cage does fit into FIA article 253 specs so its basically
legal for Rally racing as well. Powered by a 1996 Jeep cherokee 4.0 HO
motor and 2wd AX-15 5 speed jeep trans. Running the full jeep harness, ecu
and fuel injection. The rear end is out of a 1996 ford explorer, 8.8 with
3:73 gears & factory limited slip. Not sure how well that LSD works
anymore, getting significant wheel spin coming out of corners. suspension
is stock cut springs in front, stock leafs in back, factory front sway and
explorer rear sway bar. the Jeep ecu thinks its going 110 when its really
doing 80 due to tire size which kicks in the top speed limiter. A re flash
should solve this. pedal arrangement is funky so its hard to heal toe / rev
match, the car is a work in progress.

1970 AMC Javelin SST abandoned 30 years, first look.
Here is a car my brother just bought. He has been looking to speculate on
old cars and look what he found....
This is a '70 AMC Javelin SST, possible Mark Donahue edition. The owners
widow allegedly has a stack of paperwork to this car so we are crossing our
fingers there is something to document a real Donahue car.
This is Tijuana Tan metallic, 360-4V, Safe Command power brakes and power
It is very original and unmolested. The story goes is the original owners
bought it, drove it until sometime in 1979 when the trans went out. The
husband started to pull the trans out, but passed away suddenly.
His widow left this car and 3 others where they sat for the next 31 years.
They literally had to spend a week cutting down the forest to get them out.
This Javelin wears vintage Cragar-type wheels, has the requisite add-on 8
track player also!
I will get more video and photos as we progress through clean-up and
mechanical evaluation of this AMC.
Please comment and subscribe, thanks!
PS the SST sold 2 months after this video and the Plymouth has long since
been restored and turned into a daily driver.
Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
