This Hunter Green Gremlin was recently pulled from a Northern Minnesota barn, where it had resided since 1989. This car is in great condition and looks to be very original, with only 44,000 documented miles. If you’re into Gremlins, this great example can be found in Crystal Minnesota for sale on eBay with a current bid of $5,000.
The interior in this car looks almost as good as new, with no signs of wear or abuse anywhere. The plaid cloth seats look great and are have the Capricorn trim option. We imagine this car is a nice cruiser and would be a trip back to the ’70s every time you sat down on that big plaid bench seat.
We wish this car had the 304 cui V8 instead of its 232 cui I6, or even the slightly bigger and more powerful 258 cui I6. However, this engine looks to be in great condition and supposedly runs great. The 232 I6 was only rated at 100 hp, thankfully the Gremlin only weights around 2,700 pounds. 1972 was the first year the Gremlin was available with the Chrysler built TorqueFlite transmission, or Torque-Command in AMC talk. This transmission was far more reliable and durable than the other optional transmissions offered.
AMC’s Gremlin and Pacer might not have been the most attractive cars, but they are starting to become more popular and survivors like this one can go for considerably more than book value. At $5,000 this one is already pretty high, but we could see it fetching a few thousand dollars more. This one also gains some points for its white rally stripe on Hunter Green paint. We will keep an eye on this little Gremlin.
