Welcome to the PacerPedia, soon to be your information for all things AMC pacer.

As I work on my project Pacer I am struck with the difficulty of finding information about various aspect, even with a Technical Service Manual (TSM) handy. There are various specs, procedures, and part numbers that either don't exist or are just plain wrong.

Here I hope to provide the American Motors Pacer enthusiast or driver with the correct information to keep this unique and wonderful car on the road.

Sections are organized similar to the 1980-1988 TSMs and Parts manuals that AMC produced.

And please, if you have any information to contribute, please contact me.
