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.
1974 AMC Gremlin Built 343 V8 4 BBL Start up and Walkaround
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1974 AMC Gremlin. It's
powered by a balanced and blueprinted 343 V8, backed by a 3 spd automatic
trans. The engine features a more aggressive car, stainless Exhaust valves, aluminum intake, Holley 4 BBL
Carb, MSD ignition, and headers. This little car will really scoot down
the road in a hurry. To top it off, this car only has 46,xxx original
miles on the odometer and only about 5,xxx miles on the engine. This thing
is ready to run for many more years to come. Hope you find it interesting,
thanks for watching!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

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.

Everything else is explained in the video. Filmed on a high 20 F degree

This one has about 6,000 miles on it since the engine rebuild. The
speedometer is accurate give or take 2-3mph, checked with a GPS.
The T176 is a great transmission and has never skipped a beat. I've
wheeled it pretty hard and put it through some hell on the street and at
the strip with several tire size/gear combinations. 3rd gear redlines at
about 90mph with the current setup. I've never really gotten much into 4th
For you guys who have shown concern regarding the suspension, steering,
etc... It has all been refurbished/upgraded to stock/better than stock
condition. It drives very well, straight and true down the road and is
almost nothing like the stereotypical CJ when it comes to its road manners.
