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 Amc Rambler Update
Vance has got the body done. This is a quick rundown of what has happened
and what is going to happen.
1969 AMERICAN MOTORS SC/RAMBLER Only 124 are known to exist
The Hurst SC/Rambler was created in the spring of 1969.
This was a collaboration of American Motors and Hurst Performance.
There were 1,512 Hurst SC/Ramblers produced with an original selling
price of $2,998. One of 1,512 ever built and one 1,188 in the "A"
paint scheme. Only 124 are known to exist based on the
Hurst SC/Rambler registry. This is a 390, 4-speed and twin grip.
Full restoration. The car has its original engine and many NOS
parts were used in the restoration process. Options included with
the car: AMC 390/315hp, unique red/white/blue exterior pain and
headrests, functional Ram Air with hood scoop, 4-speed transmission
with Hurst shifter, HD suspension with sway bar, torque links, and
staggered shocks, HD cooling, power disc brakes and sun tachometer.
Ride in my 1964 Rambler American 330
I drove it over to Mike's today and had the camera with me, so thought I'd
shoot a bit of footage. I wasn't tryin' hard to burn rubber, but it does
bark 'em nice..
1966 AMC Rambler Classic station wagon TV commercial
During Mitt Romney's campaign to win the Michigan primary in February 2012,
the Romney campaign bought one of my vintage AMC clips for use in their
primary TV commercial. (Mitt's spot is called "Growing Up." You can find
it here on YouTube.)
If you watch the spot, the second shot shows a Rambler wagon pulling into a
driveway. That's the clip his people bought from me.
At this time, AMC was in big trouble. When Roy Abernethy took over after
Mitt's dad, George Romney, left American Motors, he tried to compete
directly with The Big Three in size and horsepower. He lost big
time. This no-nonsense spot acknowledges that AMC knew the American public
had dismissed it as a boring, economy car company. The goal was to get
them to reconsider American Motors.
I thought I'd take the opportunity to show you the whole TV commercial.
It's been digitized and color-corrected with amore.
I'd love to have this wagon today. It's appropriately named: a Classic!

1961 RAMBLER AMERICAN 4 DOOR -- AMC'S RECORD BREAKER
1961 is the year when AMC transformed the prior Rambler with rounded
contours to the squared off design. That new design propelled record sales
which even passed Plymouth by 20,400 units to capture third place in the
industry. Now, who says American Motors never amounted to much? Also,
because there was only one assembly plant to produce AMC products, 600,000
cars were made here annually making it the largest single auto plant in the
U.S. Rambler American's came in 2 and 4 door sedans, station wagons, and
convertible coupe. These four door's came at a price of $1,894 and of
course had excellent gas mileage. You can safely say that here was an
American make that was already battling the import economy cars. But other
AMC products were just as nice also. Above the Rambler was the Classic
Six, the Classic V8, the Ambassador and the imported smaller yet car, the
Metropolitan. The engine installed in these American's was an L-head 6
with 195 cid., and 90 - 125 horses. This dusty jewel shown here is a low
mileage number that if cleaned would look even more inviting. This Rambler
has eventually found a new home. Thanks very much for viewing this 1961
high volume record breaker Rambler American.
