Pacer, iconic AMC, with far out, original 70's interior - dizzy black and white patterned seats with deep pile micro-shag-like black flooring, crack-free dash and door panels with amazingly little fading, rack and pinion steering. The transmission works well.. It started the first try yesterday in freezing weather after sitting four months. New tires. The floors are hole free. There is little visible rust. The car tracks straight. The brakes work but shoes and/or cylinder on the front left need replacing. The corroborator has a vacuum leak because it idles a bit fast. The gas support arms on the hatch need replacing. The glass of the driver's door is partly loss from the regulator (the part that raises and lowers the glass). The regulator itself works. There are no other mechanical issues I'm aware of.

This is an earlier production model made with the strengthened body for greater safety, integrated roll bar seen in the roof contour, steel reinforced door panels, etc. It has not been driven significantly since the 1990's so the odometer could well be showing original miles. The Pacer's width is equal to a full-sized domestic vehicle from the time. This feature was promoted by AMC as "the first wide small car." The Pacer was also the first modern, U.S. design using the cab forward concept. The body surface is 37 percent glass. The May 1976 issue of Car and Driver dubbed it "The Flying Fishbowl." The Pacer was AMC's answer to the writing on the wall from the 1973 OPEC embargo when Detroit was still rolling out boat-sized gas guzzlers.
