Originality: n/a Accessories included: Heater, Radio, Rear Speaker, Electric Clock Notes:
Was a nearly complete car when it arrived; the yard tried to sell it for $600.00 but there were no takers. I got the Teletouch, the heater control, the passenger side front bumper and some smaller parts, including the VIN plate. Pacer emblems were the early aluminum ones. Rear doors didn't have inside handles; they were replaced with small conical aluminum covers that fit over the shafts. It was later pretty well stripped by the time it was scrapped.
