PremiumX 1975 “Freetown Police” AMC Pacer X

PremiumX 1975 “Freetown Police” AMC Pacer X

AMC created “the first wide small car” in 1975 with the AMC Pacer, a sub-compact with compact car interior space. In addition to its wide track and excellent visibility (or goldfish-bowl styling, take your pick) the Pacer’s passenger side door was longer than the driver’s by 4 inches for easier curbside access to the rear seat. Unfortunately, PremiumX missed that detail on this 1975 Pacer model, but they’ve nailed just about everything else. In 2000, a Freetown, MA, business refurbished a Pacer X and donated it to the police department for use in their D.A.R.E. program; that’s the subject of this resincast model from PremiumX. Its paint is as good as you’ll find, and the neatly applied decal graphics match photos well, but there should be blue flashers above the bumper and vertical black nerf bars as well. The bubble car shape is exactly right and all those big windows have thin bright chrome printed moldings. Rocker panels, light bezels, door handles, and even the lock cylinders are done the same way, while the tiny Pacer X badges are ultra-thin photo-etched pieces. The all-black interior has the X-package bucket seats and floor shift, but the model has DL-package wheels. Nits aside, a great addition to any service car collection. Thanks to Wild About Wheels for providing the sample.  – Wayne Moyer
