‘Wayne’s World’ 1976 AMC Pacer Movie Car is looking for a new home


Remember that legendary scene from Wayne’s World film, in which Wayne, Garth and their friends lip-synched with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody in a sky blue AMC Pacer (see video below)? You can now replicate this epic moment – just buy the original Mirthmobile and invite your friends for a short singing session. Yes, we are not kidding.

Barrett-Jackson will sell the original 1976-built movie car at its 2022 Scottsdale sale from January 22-30 this year. When the film was produced in 1991, the car was bought on the used market and finished in baby blue with flames on the sides. Later, the three-door sedan was sold and appeared in a 2015 episode of Pawn Stars. In 2016, it was sold for $37,400 by Barrett-Jackson.

According to the vehicle description, it has been restored to its original condition which retained the mismatched wheel combination of chrome wire wheels in the rear and factory wheel covers in the front. During the restoration, the car was stripped and all the bodywork was repainted, while the bumpers and wheels were rechromed. The same detailed restoration has been applied to the interior, where the seats, interior panels and dashboard have been repainted.

As you’ve probably heard by now, the only part of the car that isn’t true to the original movie condition is the new, upgraded audio system. This was due to the original 10 inch speakers not being functional as there had never been an amp in the car. Currently, the new audio system is fully operational and ready to rock the Bohemian Rhapsody at full power.

We don’t expect this rare AMC, arguably the most famous car the company has ever built, to generate huge buzz, however. Yes, it’s an original movie car, but the modified cabin with the new stereo system might be good for its price. Still, we think it could easily fetch around $50,000.
