Interior comes out, replaced with a full custom Levi'* repop, in BLACK denim. Exterior loses the rear factory bumper, replaced with a roll pan. Front gets a deeper airdam, with integrated fogs that mirror the headlights in design. POWERPLANT........New Indy AMC drag block, bored and stroked to 476 cubes, with Indy heads and a pair of T88s. Built 727 for a tranny, CUSTOM IRS in the back using a Cobra center.
Paint it all in Burnt Orange Metallic, with a gold base to "warm" the paint.

nahh nahh nahh, the way I would do it would be to...

Gut the interior, reupholster the seats with white vinyl and take out all that audio crap and replace it with a simple black vinyl dash with 2 dial radio and an 8-track player. Then, I'd shoehorn an LS7 in that tiny tiny engine bay. Then I'd paint it this blue:


Then I'd add in a twizzler dispenser on the headliner to top it off...

Peter, the Twizzler dispenser is not optional in this discussion. It'* a given in a Pacer, just a question of "which flavor of Twizzler?"

BTW, Pacers have a pretty good sized bay. V8 swaps aren't a problem at all, I've even seen a 426 Hemi wedged in there. Granted, he HAD to use solid mounts and some creative headers, but it did fit without modding the shock towers.

V8 swaps aren't an issue because they DID have them in limited numbers IIRC. The 304 I believe.

I'm more of a Hornet/Concord/Spirit/Gremlin man myself.
