This car was a one owner original car that was stolen, written off by the insurer and later it was recovered badly vandalised. The then purchaser took off the stomped flat roof, and commenced convertiblisation , he later abandoned the project the car was left in his back yard in brighton in the weather without a roof and only a little re-inforcing done, around 94 I purchased it when it was advertised in the Sat Age for the princely sum of $200 and over 2 years i completed the convertiblisation and restored all the other body damage.
I was a original 3 speed floor shift auto car with a LSD option in Tha-she-blu. It was converted to a 360 5 speed manual and given new irridesent purple/pink paint, new cloth trim and fold up roof prior to registration in late 95.
Around 98 i made the removable hardtop that is installed in the pic. The soft top is for the warm months the hardtop for winter use. It has been my wifes daily commute for just on 10 years and has racked up about 155,000 miles in that period, proving that they are still as durable today as they were when new. BTW it too has had factory aircond and power steering fitted, I'm getting to old to fight with fat tyres, small momo steering wheel and manual steering, and sometimes its just to hot to take the roof off and the air works a treat.

Important information about ads: This site has been running for 17 years, providing information about Chrysler Valiant Pacers. The site has never made a penny (it was never intended to do so) and was built for the love of Pacers, however it has always cost money to run. In 2018 I put some ad's on the site to see if the website can somehow cover its costs and so far the ads look like they'll cover about 50% of the annual running costs. If you see an ad that interests you, please click on it, as it will help! Just seeing ads does not achieve anything, and so if you would rather not see any ad's, you can click here to not see any more. It looks like you've opted to not see any ads, which is fine, but if you want you can turn them back on here.
