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.

401 AMC Pacer Vs 440 AMC Pacer
My 1978 Pacer (black one) with a built AMC 401 and 5-speed manual transmission versus a 1976 Pacer with a Mopar 440 with a 3-speed auto at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN on June, 12 2009 as part of the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. My dad was driving in this run, and unfortunately could not get the rear tires to hook up. The Red White and Blue Pacer hooked up, and thus the result. Winner: Red White and Blue Pacer with a 13.72@101.85 followed by our car with a 14.54@96.36. Well work on the car, find a way to get her to hook up, and well be back again. 13s shouldnt be a problem and itll give us something to aspire to. Also, please excuse the sub-fanatics level of camera work...this was me behind the camera as Dan did not come with me on the Power Tour.

1976 AMC Pacer Test Drive | AutoMoments Time Warp
The car world loves to hate the Pacer, but how many of those people have actually driven one? After producing an entire documentary about the car, we decided to test one for ourselves. While far from perfect, we found the Pacer to not be nearly as bad as people claim. In fact, this strangle little car is pretty cool in it's own weird sort of way.

1979 Pacer D/L "Survivor"
Here we have a mega iconic 1979 American Motor Company (AMC) Pacer D/L. The D/L model was the upscale version that featured a few extra chrome goodies on the outside and woodgrain dash and Navajo design seat fabric on the inside. AMC Pacers were originally developed to battle ever-evolving emission controls, US regulations, and that pesky fuel crisis. The AMC Pacer was produced by the American Motors Corporation from 1975 -1980. With about as much glass as metal, the AMC Pacer arrived. During the first year of the AMC Pacer's introduction, there were 145,528 examples produced. In total, 280,000 examples of the AMC Pacer were built, its ode to the 1970's jellybean design is one of the most recognizable of all times. It's large windows and fishbowl appearance was designed with the purpose of appearing futuristic. Back in the day, Car and Driver Magazine noted "AMC said it was the first car designed from the inside out. Four passengers were positioned with reasonable clearances and then the rest of the car was built around them as compactly as possible." Today, Pacer has become a highly recognizable icon of the 1970s, it has made numerous appearances in movies, music videos and television programs; no car screams the movie "Wayne's World" than a Pacer! Today the Pacer's originality, is appreciated, if not loved, by car hobbyists and serious collectors alike. As a matter of fact, today Pacers are becoming more and more valuable. This one is a 16,112 original low mile unrestored "survivor" in pristine running order. A closer look reveals factory chalk marks still present in the engine bay and driver door jam. Additionally, the date code correct seatbelts are present as well as factory maintenance and service decals just as they were placed there rolling down the assembly line in '79! Remember they are only original once so if you are looking for a AMC Pacer to add to your collection, this low mile original "survivor" example may be just the one you are after! Features, Options and Accessories Engine/Drivetrain: 258 C.I.D in-line 6, rated at 100horsepower 2 Barrel carburetor Factory original engine fires right up and runs very strong and smooth Power steering Power brakes Interior: Entire interior is all original (Very nice shape) Cloth bucket seats Dash is amazingly great condition Factory Air Conditioning Electric clock Factory AM/FM Stereo Gauges are clear, scratch free and showing little wear or age Fold down rear seat Exterior: Tan exterior Chrome side trim DL insignias Roof rack Honeycomb rims with/14" white wall tires VIN: A9A667C200983
