1975 AMC Pacer B 258 I6 from North America
I have no doubt that it will last another 238,000 miles
Exhaust manifold needed to be replaced.
Overdrive pushbutton switch needed to be replaced.
Brake master cylinder went about 1000 miles after I acquired the car.
Interior is definitely starting to show its age.
This is one of the few Pacers with the 3 speed manual with overdrive.
The car get's excellent economy (21 MPG City, 34MPG Highway).
The engine is a strong runner and has never been rebuilt, and it doesn't leak or burn oil.
Car is extremely comfortable with great visibility.
Lots of cargo room with rear seat folded down.
Seats 4 full sized adults comfortably.
It has RWD, and combined with the limited slip differential, it never spun the wheels or got stuck during the winter on icy roads.
I bought this car as a novelty, and ended up using it as my daily driver (as a commuter car) because of its comfort and reliability. I have driven it in heavy city traffic daily, and have never had one problem with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
