I think this link works. At least it worked for me. You may have to log in to see it though.

Well I don't follow the value of Pacers as much as some others, but $61k for a restored matching-numbers 4-speed L78 pace car (if it's genuinely one, as described) seems like a *very* good deal, especially at one of those fancy auctions....

Chinese brake booster, missing rubber cowl seal, no smog, 67 center caps and TA radials. If real that was probably top dollar for that car with no documentation. I wouldn't pay that much.

Plenty of estimates out there, actual production is not known.

Without some proof, I'd assume it's not really a L78 car.

Thanks. I know very little about pacers, but I THOUGHT I heard/read only the two used for festival week were L-78, the rest were 325 or 350 hp? What is a guess on L-78s?

Not true. In addition to the two track cars [L89s] there are more than a dozen L78s in our db.

From the data: 350 auto 57% 350 manual 21% 396 auto 8% 396 manual 14%.

Like Charlie stated without Paperwork what is it? 
A story and an incorrect restoration...

Documented L78 verts with born with drive trains are six figure cars even needing a resto.
