1973 AMC Gremlin

I will be adding more pictures soon

Vehicle: Loads of power and intense throttle response make this car a stock looking sleeper orweekend racer with some sticky tires. These cars are rarely seen on the road and always get a lot of attention. 1973 AMC Gremlin, Clean California title in my name, purchased the car 3 years ago and built it to its current condition. I have a copy of the title when I purchased the car from the original California owner. This car was built to the current condition using extra/spare parts in my inventory. This is not a numbers matching Gremlin. To put this car back to AMC original you would need a Gremlin engine cross member, transmission cross member and AMC drivetrain. The car is a runner driver, for me it is just a hot rod old school toy. I have been working on it for 1.5 years and have been driving it the last 8 months. I am ready to let it go because I have other toys. All receipts for parts and service are included. I cannot put any more $ in this car. The car is at a stage where you could finish it how you want it- leave as is, race car, street warrior, or put back to stock. Priced to sell.
