  • Event Title: Automotive Showplace: 1975 AMC Pacer D/L
  • Event Date(s): Spring of 2024
  • Event Location: Detroit Historical Museum, 5401 Woodward Ave, Detroit
  • Event Description: This AMC Pacer was built for Dick Teague, the head of the American Motors Corporation (AMC) styling in 1975. The AMC Pacer project began in 1971 with a clean drawing board and ended with the “Hottest Car of 1975.” The Pacer was a new design on smaller compact cars of the 1970s and was made for its roominess, nearly as wide as a contemporary Cadillac Eldorado. The Pacer’s unique windows also provided passengers with near panoramic views from any seat in the car and helped fight small-car claustrophobia.
