1972 AMC Gremlin
Offering this nice, always California, 1972 AMC Gremlin. Other than one repaint in it's original Grasshopper Green, this car appears to be all original. I recently obtained this off a gentleman who had the car about 5 years but it had been in his family for about 20. He had used it regularly for awhile but it has mostly been sitting for the last couple of years - only being driven occasionally. I drove the car home 2 hours in 100 degree temperatures without issue. As stated in the condition section, the car runs rough and could benefit from a tune up and the brakes were a little soft. If you're looking for a solid Gremlin with good bones and are willing to add some TLC this may be the one you've been waiting for. PROS: 1. Original solid / straight California car - no known accident history - all original body panels - one decent repaint about 3-4 years ago(10 footer) - only minor rust(both doors). 2. Car starts, stops and drives. Nice power steering, No smoking, transmission shifts well. I drove car 100 miles - mostly freeway at 65-70 mph. 3. Based on Trim code research the car appears to be all original - including pleated vinyl bucket seats which were an option for that year. 4. Original license plates, AND dealer license plate cover - San Gabriel Reliable American(Research shows this was an AMC dealership that opened in 1972). 5. Great original color - Grasshopper Green. 6. Headlights, brake lights, turn signals, back up lights, radio all in working order. 7. Clean California Title w/ current registration. 8. The car is being listed with a VERY LOW reserve - Good Luck! CONS: 1. I listed already in the condition section but will list again here: This car is 44 years old and has never been restored so please understand it has many defects. Those found include: Could use a tune up - runs rough, rust spots on lower corners of both doors, areas where paint has chipped off, headliner at rear is cracked/chipped, tires have good tread but appear to be old, A/C/Heater not turning on, Windshield wiper switch broken, center dash not connected properly(possibly when aftermarket stereo put in), Fuel/temperature portion of gauge not working properly(MPH and odometer working fine), both doors have some type of silicone put around the door stop. The back glass hatch does not lock. *** The vehicle has NOT been professionally inspected for defects. The ones listed above are just those I have noticed in the short time I have had the car. I am certain that if the vehicle was professionally inspected they would find other things wrong with the vehicle. Please understand this car has NOT been restored - is being sold as is. If you would like the vehicle to be inspected, I live in Fallbrook Ca - zip code 92028. You can find a local shop and I would be happy to bring it there for an inspection to be done at your cost.
