Produced from 1970 to 1978, the Gremlin was effectively a Hornet with the rear end sliced off. While is could be considered a compact and direct competitor of the Ford Pinto or Chevrolet Vega, Gremlin came with a proved in-line 6-cyl engine while both the popular cars only had in-line 4's. Starting in 1973, you could even order a V8 in the Gremlin which made it get up and scoot. The X-package came out in 1971 and added a bit of color and style. Later on there was a Levi edition which featured an interior of simulated blue denim and genuine Levi Strauss buttons.

... and if you're in the mood for good, clean, stupid fun, watch the 1970 cult-movie, "Brewster McCloud", where an AMC Gremlin was stuffed with a 390. This link is part of the movie ... the Gremlin appears for a brief couple of moments past 1:43 in the clip. The chase scene in the movie was awesome and shows the actions of some great muscle Camaro's, Road Runner's and the Gremlin.     R.
