AMC Woody! 1977 Pacer Wagon

pacer1

Yes, it’s another one, but even nicer this time! If a Pacer could ever be described as gorgeous, this one is it. Located in Lewisburg, West Virginia and listed for sale here on eBay where bidding is less than $1,000 but hasn’t met reserve, this 1977 example of AMC’s unusual compact looks exactly like the factory brochure for that year. Said to have 99% of it’s original paint and being in superb condition throughout, this survivor offers the purchaser the opportunity to create smiles wherever they go. Even if you aren’t a Pacer fan, you have to admire the condition of this car. The seller has had it for 11 years, and has replaced a huge list of mechanical components, for as they state, “I replaced things that probably would have been just fine if I had left them alone. But, it’s really embarrassing sitting on the side of the road in your classic car.” All original parts have been saved and are included. Yes, there are a few blemishes in the interior, but nothing that would keep me from being very interested if I were in the market. Some Barn Finds readers remarked that they wished the last Pacer wagon we featured was closer to them, so are you interested in this one that’s in West Virginia?

    just looked at a pacer at a car show today. this one it now over $3500 with reserve still not met. should be intesting to see where the bids end. this car looks real good in the photos, might make a nice daily driver. great find.

    I just have to ROFLMAO every time I see one of these cars BUT I must say it looks to be a nice survivor for someone stuck in Wayne’s World.

    The one thing that always made me look twice at a Pacer is that the passenger door is a couple inches longer than the driver door. You can see it when you compare the position of the door line in the B pillar. What the heck? Was that supposed to be a subtle commentary on who you haul on the passenger side or what were the designers thinking?

      The longer passenger door was to make getting in and out of the back seat easier–sort of a three door.

    I just noticed it says here a 1975 Pacer and the ad reads 1977. Typo maybe.

      @JW–My error, thanks for catching it. I’ve asked Josh to make the correction :-)
