Does anyone know where I could find one? I hear theyre pretty rare....but I would like to save up some money and have one as a project car. I dont car about the condition too much, it just needs to have the original components (ie. engine, transmission, suspension) with it. :mrgreen:
jw, why a Gremlin?
The AMC Gremlin X has a 304 V8 that makes 175hp. Pair that with a lightweight body, and chassis, and you have one quick little car. Plus if you bumped the horse power up to about 250, you would have a 12 sec car. Plus I think they look cool. :smoke:
f*ck that... yank the 304 and drop a 360 or 401 in there... :thumbs:
found this gremlin yesterday in northern kentucky junk yard while lookin
for amc products.....
i couldnt believe it but this thing weighed in at 3750 i noticed while looking for the year
Hell what about an SE-R motor, makes that much and its a 4 cylinder :screwy: :laughing: You should know a lot about that seeing that you did it :laughing: :roll:
....Uhhh....I thought they were only like 2900lbs. I wouldnt think something that small would weigh so much. Thats more than my mothers 98 Bonneville SSEi. :screwy:
I think the Pacer looks better... but they both cool... and if you make it
really fast... well then youll really have something.
i like the 70-73 gremlins, myself...
I was thinking doing some like swapping in a 351 Cleaveland, a Ford 9" rear end, modified with a Dana 60 and 3.73 Richmond gears, along with a Tremec T-5 tranny :smoke: :mrgreen: Of course by then, after I get the engine built up to about 350hp, I would probably need to tub it out :laughing:
Or maybe the SE-R motor swap :laughing:
yea, got to checkin it out, its gross vehicle weight was 3750 it only ways around 2900, the tag was tattered and barley legible. when i first read it i was like jessus that almost weighs as much as my 74 buick electra.
Myrthmobile! Hehe... Ahh... Wayne's World.
Heh, ya. Do what Steven said with the SE-R, you have plenty of experience with that. :thumbs:
