To say the Gremlin was odd-looking is a bit of an understatement. It was after all, a polarizing proposal from beleaguered AMC, in need of calling for attention in any way it could. A “love it or hate it” design that did its job, finding enough love to be one of AMC’s best-selling models of the ’70s.
The Gremlin may have been a ‘funny’ car, but I’ve yet to come across snapshots of Hornet owners. Or Matadors. Or Pacers. AMC’s Gremlin was certainly quirky, but as can be seen, found much devotion from its owners.
