Pregnant Guppy: 1978 AMC Pacer DL

The 1975-1980 AMC Pacer was a fishbowl shaped subcompact car built by the American Motors Corp in Kenosha, WI (also in Mexico City under license via Vehículos Automotores Mexicanos S.A.).  It was slowly fading into obscurity when two rockers named Wayne and Garth painted it with the aura of cool in the 1992 SNL skit-crossover-feature movie Wayne’s World, a now nice ones are worth more than a box of Red Vine’s Super Rope.  Find this 1978 AMC Pacer DL here on eBay bidding for $7,477 reserve-not-met with 2 days to go.

Just how much is an original condition Pacer with only 38k miles on the odometer worth?  I haven’t the foggiest idea, but this auction should answer this age old question…if the reserve is met.

A quick peek under the hood shows this moonbuggy still has an original style inline-6, which is either a 232 cubic inch version good for 90 horsepower or a 258 cubic inch version good for 100 horsepower.

A peek in the inside of this terrarium shows a bright red interior that would make any malaise mobile collector green with envy.
