AMC Gremlin X

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  AMC Gremlin X

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:

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:

....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 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:
