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.

Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!! The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!

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.

1968 AMC AMBASSADOR SST - SPORTY EDITION AMBASSADOR
THE SIXTIES WERE A TIME WHEN ALL CAR MANUFACTURERS WERE THROWING OUT VARIOUS MUSCLE AND SPORTY PRODUCTS. IN 1968 THE AMC REBEL WAS THE SPORTY MUSCLE EDITION. THE AMBASSADOR WAS THE TOP OF THE LINE AT AMC AND GOT A DOSE OF SPORTINESS WITH THE SST EDITION. THIS 118 INCH WHEELBASE WAS POWERED BY A 290 V8 ENGINE WITH 200 BHP. AN AMBASSADOR 2-DOOR SOLD FOR $3,172 AND THE 4-DOOR SEDAN SOLD FOR $ $3,151, TWENTY ONE DOLLARS LESS THAN THE COUPE. WITH THIS PRICE YOU WOULD GET A POSH INTERIOR, FULL VINYL ROOF, SPORTY MAG WHEELS OR WIRE WHEELS, AND AN EXTERIOR DESIGN THAT WAS SVELT, CLEAN, AND CLUTTER FREE. QUITE A GOOD LOOKING CAR WHETHER IT WAS AN ORDINARY AMBASSADOR OR THIS UPGRADE MODEL. IF YOU WANTED, YOU COULD ORDER THE OPTIONAL BUZZER THAT SOUNDED WHEN YOU LEFT YOUR LIGHTS ON. AN INDUSTRY FIRST, I BELIEVE. ALSO, AMBASSADORS WERE THE 1ST MODERATELY PRICED CAR TO INSTALL STANDARD AIR CONDITIONING. WITH THE DEMISE OF INNOVATIVE CAR MAKER FOR MANY DECADES, NASH, AMERICAN MOTORS INC., WAS FERVENTLY CLAWING IT'S WAY INTO THE CAR MARKET. CASE IN POINT, HERE IS WHAT AMC OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1968: REBEL 550, 770, AND SST, MUSCLE CAR AMX, PONY CAR JAVELIN, AMBASSADOR, AMBASSADOR DPL, AND THE SST. ENGINE CHOICES DESIGNATED TO CERTAIN MODELS AMOUNTED TO SEVEN. TWO 6 CYLINDERS, AND FIVE EIGHT. TOTAL AMOUNT OF ALL AMBASSADOR MODELS FOR '68 WERE 54,681 UNITS. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING THIS ORIGINAL SURVIVOR AMBASSADOR SST.

Also feel free to Call anytime Nathan Wratislaw 406 544 6919 i got this info from Wikipedia 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 and 1955. 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.[1] 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.[1] 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. 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.[31] 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."[31] 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 vaunted cars.[ The SC/Rambler has a strong collector following, with websites, clubs, and a registry.[36] 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.[31] 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 seventh digit.[37]
