1981 AMC Spirit AMX Pace Car

PPG sponsored a competition among five manufacturers to design a custom pace car for the 1981 IndyCar World Series. AMC took a Spirit AMX and built a completely new fiberglass body and added a turbocharged and fuel injected 258 ci inline six. The result is a one of one factory custom car!

1988 Jeep Comanche Race Truck on eBay

Tommy Archer has been with the Chrysler Group’s racing and development team for the past 18 years. In 1989 he raced this very truck at Lime Rock, winning the event. It’s a survivor race truck with only 4000 miles! The only updates are the fuel cell, replacement Hoosier tires, a new front spoiler and a bigger racing seat. The interior looks amazingly stock for a race winning truck. Wouldn’t it be cool to enter it in vintage races? See more detail at Bring A Trailer. The eBay ad was pulled 04Nov after apparently reaching only $5300. See the new, reposted, ad on eBay.  More pis after the jump!

Reader’s Rides: Terry Couturier’s 1971 Plymouth Satellite

Today’s reader’s ride is Terry Couturier’s 1971 Plymouth Satellite, which he found in a barn eight years ago. It’s powered by a 360 which Terry rebuilt and stroked out to 408 cubic inches. After the jump I have pics of his son’s 1984 Ram and 2006 Ram.

Insane Custom 1987 Jeep Comanche on Craigslist

Here’s one for our growing WTF category. This custom Comanche will either sear your eyeballs or make you laugh. I kind of like it, but wish they’d picked a Ranger or S-10. A lot of work plus a fair amount of misguided creativity went into this thing. To add insult to injury, it now has SBC power. More pics plus Craigslist ad text after the jump! Via Jalopnik

Reader’s Rides: Steve Christensen’s 1982 Dodge Challenger

Check out Steve’s all original 1982 Dodge Challenger. These were build by Mitsubishi and sold as the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Sapporo in the United States from 1978 to 1982. Here’s the word from Scott:

Here is a rare find. My 9th Challenger. Yes 9th. A 1982 Dodge Challenger, all original down to the am/fm non-cassette radio. A true survivor. Making this even more impressive is that the car currently has 230,000 on the clock. The car is a 5 speed, all wheel disc brakes, aluminum Road Wheels. Ok, it may not the pony car, but this Challenger does have a 2.6 liter Hemi. When I got my first second generation Challenger in Nov 1981, I went from Fife, Wa to Treasure Island San Francisco, 800 mikes at an average speed of 69 mph, fact. I have owned seven of the pony cars, all of them unique and special. The 1982 Challenger is a remarkable car. Hard to find today. It gets looks wherever it goes and people don’t realize that in the 80s Dodge had a Challenger.
