Talking 1959 Pacer new member

Hi,
I am a new member from North Carolina. I recently bought a 1959 Pacer. A few scratches on the outside but the inside is in near new condition. Original stove refrigerator, stove, sink. There is a black vinyl couch in the front that I am not sure is original. Maybe someone else knows that. I am taking my time with it. I know that I found a treasure, Now I am learning how to tow it and back it up!

Welcome to Air Forums. What a great find - congratulations.

This link should help you - but keep in mind - other than that sofa yours appears more original than some of these examples.

Welcome.
Great find -- love the appliances.

BTW, those aren't scratches, they are considered beauty marks around here.

Great find but why is this posted under vintage kin? That's typically the place for Avions, Spartans..... You may want to ask a moderator to move this thread to the 59 Pacer thread

Welcome to the world of Airstreams; your life will be forever changed. Enjoy the ride.

Nice that you recognize that you have found a treasure. My brother has a 61, I believe, that is also in great shape. Send me a pm if you like and I will send you some photos of it.

Dan
