For anyone building an engine or working on some heads; I would suggest you look into Cerakote coatings.  So far this stuff is amazing and incredibly easy to apply and I can see the durability in these coatings.

On a local level, of the three Pacers that were owned in this area, two had A/C, one did not. All three are small blocks.


I believe I knew 2 of those local cars personally..   Wink Grin

First things first.  Welcome.  Best thing to do is post a pic of the trim tag & vin as well as the hidden vins..  As far as what you have posted the numbers look ok but cant say 100% without see the items I have listed..

Looks can be deceiving though..  I see some differences but then again they are things that could have been changed.

BTW the date was confirmed that the pic was taken in 1977..

Just to make things even more confusing this is a pic of a 302 emblem'd car in the Austin TX area at Little River Dragway around the 1977 timeframe (at least that is what I am told)..  Could this be the Don Lee car pictured above or is the date wrong that I was given and all three are the same car or could there actually be 3 different cars..??..  The plot thickens..

I noticed the clutch grabs way at the top, can I adjust that down below? And if so, which way to you screw it, it has been 30 years since I did it on my mustang.

Loosen the nut on the rod and then use a wrench to adjust the length.  Less threads showing will give you a lower pedal release point (less engagement).  More will give you a higher pedal release point (more engagement).

Original owner said he added the rear spoiler but the front spoiler came on the car.  Also cowl plenum was in the trunk & he added the headers.  Cool story he told me was he went to a SCCA race in Texas and was watching the race and looked over at his car and noticed that the front end of his car was in the air.  He and his friends ran over to the car and some guys were taking his brake pads off the car asking if they could use them cause they just killed theirs in the race.  He said the racers name was Wally something or other.  Ended up going out to California to be a part of Wally's crew and has been out there ever since.  He also said he could remember when you got on the car with the cowl plenum air cleaner it was almost deafening..  lol  Those are 15x7's in the above pictures.  He said he knew a guy that had a vette and he got the wheels from him and added new tires.

My car is a cowl plenum car and it did not have a console or gauges.  Still not 100% this is the same as mine.  Talked with the original owner of the car above today and he is looking for anything he may have on that car.  Crazy thing is he ordered his car around the same time as mine and it was from the same dealer in Austin TX.  Not impossible I guess..  Time will tell.

Also notice that the pass head has in yellow or white marker what looks to be MO..  As well as the water pump bypass fitting & hose are painted.
