Last week we featured this stunning 1977 Pacer and low and behold another extra nice Pacer wagon is on the market. This 1977 Pacer is an all original 33,800 mile well equipped beauty finished in blue throughout. Found on Ebay in Richfield, North Carolina there was plenty of bidder interest on the first day of the listing.
The original paint is dazzling with no evidence of any fade from the day it left the showroom 40 years ago. It’s clear that this low mileage Pacer wagon has been pampered from day one. An added bonus with the paint are the ‘comet trail’ graphics. I’m not sure if that was from the factory as I don’t recall ever seeing this treatment before but they certainly fit the period.
Being the higher level D/L version this pacer is well equipped with the larger 6 cylinder engine, automatic transmission, power steering and brakes, factory AC and the very rare AMC rally wheels. The AC is said to work but could use a freon charge otherwise everything is said to work and perform as new.
It’s remarkable how well preserved this Pacer wagon is and the awards it has received for originality at car shows help verify this time capsule. Usually lighter colored carpets and cloth interiors tend to show wear quickly but the interior on this Pacer is in amazing condition.
An easy engine detail will give it a show car quality look but then again the engine patina shows how well preserved this Pacer wagon is. It will be interesting to see where bidding goes on this car. Five years ago we featured an incredible 1977 Pacer that sold for $4,300 but prices have really increased since then and I could see this one selling in the 10K range.
