The AMC Gremlin is a two-door subcompact car produced in the United States
and Canada by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) between 1970 and 1978.
Designed by Bob Nixon from an idea by Richard A. Teague, the car was based
on a shortened and adapted Hornet platform with a Kammback-type tail. faster than other subcompacts of the
time, it competed with the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto, and also with
imported cars including the VW Beetle and Toyota Corona. The
manufacturer described it as "the first American-built import".
The Gremlin was introduced on April 1, 1970, and a total of 671,475 were
built in its single generation (one chassis design and body style).
Scarcity, and the fact that it is a 1970s car, makes the Gremlin
collectible, and it has a following among old car hobbyists and
collectors of historic vehicles. In some cases, the Gremlin enjoys "a
cult-like following in today's collectible car market. In 2007 Business
Week reported that 1970s cars such as the Gremlin were increasingly
attractive to buyers, and an insurance provider for collector-car owners
reported that values were rising.
In light of rising gasoline prices, the Gremlin offers a relatively
economical alternative to muscle cars and the more massive American cars of
its era-especially for buyers leaning toward the eccentric. AMC said the
Gremlin got "the best gas mileage of any production car made in America",
and its 21-US-gallon (79 L; 17 imp gal) gas tank allowed 500 miles (805 km)
or more between fill-ups.
It has been said that scarcity makes any Gremlin in good condition worth
preserving as a unique piece of automotive history. Original Gremlins
with the V8 engine, X package models, Levi's trim, and also the 1978 GT
versions, are the most sought-after and command higher prices.
Although Gremlins share numerous parts and components with other AMC
models, finding parts for a restoration project can be difficult. This
is exacerbated by the fact that many Gremlins were chopped up during the
late 1970s and the 1980s to make dirt-track racers. The body of choice on
the dirt circuit was the Gremlin and AMC Eagle. The subcompact bodies
fit Modified chassis and of special interest was the Gremlin's slab top and
sides with a contour that was easy to duplicate in sheet metal.
Over the years, many owners have converted Gremlins into home-built "muscle
cars" because AMC engines up to the 401 cu in (6.6 L) "just drop right
There are active AMC car clubs with numerous local chapters to assist

Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
