A car that has always looked like an upside down bathtub now looks like one from the top as well. Install a black plastic liner in the new bed and add a Campus Friend figure.

A neat build of an unusual model. Well done.

In fact, looking at it again, I'd bet that if someone produced that exact car in real life, it would sell pretty well. It's definitely diferent!

There was a 1:1 on eBay not too long ago.  I think it was done in red.  Don't remember where it was selling from or if it sold.  I'm sure more than one person has actually made a real one.

Okay, we're resurrecting ancient threads?  Cool Pacer pickup, I especially like the unusual color on it. 

 

A guy in our model club owns a Pacer woody wagon.  I had one that got away many years ago. Mid 1990s, there was a red wagon with a six and a four speed. It was a Pacer X and had mag wheels on it. 60,000 miles and $1500. I thought it would be a cool daily driver. I saw it at an Englishtown, NJ swap meet and the owner wasn't around so I wrote down the phone number. This was before cell phones so I took it home with me, and it went through the wash!  Doh!

 

I keep saying I'm gonna build a model of that Pacer!

I like this a whole lot.  But wasn't the passenger door like 6-8 inches longer on a Pacer?  Did you rescribe?

Other people may have imagined that modification, or seen one, but I never have, and I think my jaw dropped when I saw it.  It just looks so good, and so right, that it gobsmacked me!  Gotta give a big tip of the hat to that one!

 

How about some more photos?

A designer named Carl Green did a prototype 1:1 for AMC of a pickup. Look out for an old copy of Petersen's Trucking Trends 1977 with an article in it about it, or a copy of the July '77 Pickup Van & 4WD magzine. Another repaint of the car at Green's own page here.
