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.
1969 SC/Rambler/Hurst Hardtop (2) RWB DaySpdwy033012
Not only is it rare to see one of these Scramblers, but to see two at the
same time is a real treat! 390 cubic inch engine with manual transmission
would really give these cars real scoot! AMC was very aware of the youth
market, as demonstrated by their Javelins and AMXs. This was another of
their performance cars...it had been referred to earlier as the Rambler
American compact. The red, white and blue color combinations is a stroke
of genius..what colors better exemplify "American"?

The Rambler American is an automobile manufactured by the American Motors
Corporation (AMC) between 1958 and 1969. The American was the second
incarnation of AMC's forerunner Nash Motors second-generation Rambler
compact that was sold under the Nash and Hudson Motors marques from 1954
The American can be classified in three distinct generations: 1958 to 1960,
1961 to 1963, and 1964 to 1969. During the entire length of its production,
the car was sold under the Rambler brand name, and was the last Rambler
automobile manufactured for the Canadian and United States markets.
The genesis of the Rambler American began when AMC President George
W. Romney saw that AMC was in need of a small compact during the Recession
of 1958. Romney also wanted to build momentum in AMC's challenge to the
domestic Big Three automakers by adding a third car line.
The first proposals were to modify AMC's captive import by
extending the Metropolitan with a station wagon type roof design to make
room for four passengers. However the 85-inch (2,159 mm) wheelbase of
the Met severely limited the necessary interior room. On the other hand,
the company had retained the tooling from its 1955 model Rambler. The old
model's 100-inch (2,540 mm) wheelbase fit between its bigger family-sized
108-inch (2,743 mm) wheelbase Ramblers and the small import. The old design
could be slightly modified and then used for the basis of the "new"
American Motors' financial condition meant it could not afford to develop
an entirely new model. The reintroduction of the old model leveraged the
Rambler's renown for fuel economy and wins in the Mobil Economy Runs, with
the consumer's need for a smaller and more efficient alternative to the
standard-sized cars that were marketed by the domestic Big Three (General
Motors, Ford, and Chrysler) at that time.
One of the muscle car era "most visually arresting examples" was a special
model was produced during 1969 in collaboration with Hurst Performance, the
Hurst SC/Rambler. With 1,512 built, it was probably the only production
model made and promoted for a specific drag racing class, the National Hot
Rod Association (NHRA) F/Stock class.
The SC/Rambler "became one of the most potent cars of its time, throwing
down quarter-mile times that only Hemis and Cobra Jets had previously
touched." A true muscle car with zero options and a suggested retail
price(MSRP) of less than US$3,000, it would take down some much more
The SC/Rambler has a strong collector following, with websites, clubs, and
a registry. The SC/Rambler has become a popular muscle car to replicate
because of the ease of installing a powerful AMC V8 drivetrain into one of
the large number of inexpensive 1966 through 1969 Rambler Americans. To
identify a true SC/Rambler, the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) must
have the letter M in the third digit and the engine code of X as the
