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 email@example.com followed
by our car with a firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
