360 V8, AUTO, PS, A/C, FRONT DISC, TV SHOW CAR, GREAT PAINT & INTERIOR, NICE AMC
This 1973 AMC Gremlin X already is a distinctive looking classic that has been given a nice upgraded V8. But when you add in TV star power, then this might just be the coolest affordable Gremlin you can get your hands on right now.
Deep down we all love the look of AMC's Gremlin. This unique style came from the company's need for a subcompact car, but they didn't have the money for a new platform. So they took a larger Hornet and cut against the grain. It gives this car a very dramatic appearance with a long hood and reverse rear deck that was distinctive when new, and now it has matured into a truly iconic shape. From a functional side, it meant a small car that did not feel at all compact on the road. But this example has been specially restored to show you that not all Gremlins live the sedate suburban life. It starts with a professional respray of the correct Pewter Silver paint. Plus, we all love the body-colored front, aggressive black side trim, and blacked-out rear panel that comes from the Gremlin X package. And this one even has great chrome and correct 14-inch wheels with American Motors tagging in the center cap. And if you're wondering where you have seen this car before, you must be a fan of All Girls Garage on Velocity. It's well documented on the TV show, so it's a star car and you really know what kind of work went into it.
Inside is an attractive black interior that has been given all the right maintenance. In fact, the bucket seats have been nicely reupholstered, and the new carpet is quite plush. You slip behind a sporty three-spoke factory steering wheel, and gaze at a full gauge panel. AMC had some of the most stylistic readouts of the day, and it only gets better in the machined aluminum dash panel. And just to make sure you stay as cool as you look in this AMC, there are provisions for air conditioning.
Open the hood for a bit of a surprise. The largest V8 you could get from the factory was the 304 cubic-inch unit. And while this still carries the badging for that motor, there is a secret in that bright blue block. It is AMC's larger 360ci motor, and it has even been topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor for added power. So this Gremlin is really a demon, and the growl of the dual exhaust let's everyone know it, too. But more than just powerful, this is a great cruising classic with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the assurance of running cool with an aluminum radiator w/electric fan.
Complete with the original windows sticker, this is a complete and interesting classic that will always turn heads. But what's really amazing is that this upgraded Gremlin is at a darling of a price. Call today!!!
