AMERICAN MOTORS PACER

4-seater 3-door hathcback, estate.

Ghastly styling and marketing failure from AMC, aimed at Chevrolet Vega/Ford Pinto market. Acres of glass, and different length doors left to right. Was to have used GM's new Wankel unit, which was cancelled, so AMC's own engines unbalanced an already ungainly product. Horrid - no one had a good word for this awful machine, dumped after only five years.
