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.

young buck.... Special thanks for Barnie 2275 for the help with figuring
out how to make this video... You da man!

I drove it over to Mike's today and had the camera with me, so thought I'd

1959 AMC Super Rambler 2 Door Wagon - 0027-ndy - Gateway Classic Cars Indianapolis
For sale is a true head turner and extremely well built, custom, 1959 AMC
Rambler American Super Wagon. This is one ride you can drive and are not
likely to run into another one. This specific wagon underwent a
nut-and-bolt restoration just 2000 miles ago. The 2000 miles gave plenty of
time to work out the bugs because this is no average wagon. Under the hood
is a 5.3L LS1 truck engine and a 4L60E automatic transmission. The LS1 came
out of a donor truck and is stock with 22,000 miles, 20,000 at the time of
installation. The powerful V8 offers Sanderson ceramic coated headers. The
front end is comprised of a Mustang II with front disc brakes,
tubular A-arms, dropped spindles, QA1 coil overs, front sway bar and powder
coated 4 bar rear suspension. The rear end is an 8" Ford with 3.40 gears.
The Exhaust is comprised of 2 1/2"
stainless with stainless FlowMaster mufflers. Other options include: AC,
AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Seat, Tilt
Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Spare Tire, Radial Tires, and
Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. Everything on this car was either refurbished or
rebuilt. The exterior is professionally done in Dupont Speck Master Green
and a black top. All the paint is show quality and is base coat/clear coat.
Due to the Rambler's thorough restoration, the car can be driven regularly
and effortlessly. The AMC can get 22-25 MPG!!! Not too bad for a custom hot
rod. If you are looking for a show car, custom street rod, or a daily
driver that stands out amongst the pack please look no further. To view the
1959 AMC American Super Wagon in greater detail, including a video, please
