A: This is the entire color listing for 1971 Gremlins, the X models were normal production colors, but could only be ordered in 8 specific colors. If my info is correct, those marked with an “XX” after the color were the X colors:
P1 Classic Black
A1 Snow White XX

Of course, they could be special ordered in any color paint that AMC offered.
Q: Is it true the AMC Gremlin was just supposed to be an April fool joke?
A: it started manufacturing on April 1.
i doubt a joke would make it to manufacturing. Do you know how many rounds of design and testing a product must go through to be manufactured.
Q: I have a 1978 amc gremlin I took head off to do a valuve job. Is there an order to putting bolts back?What?
I have to put the head back on and torque it down. I wasn’t sure if there was a specific order that I had to do that in. Please help ASAP!!!!
A: get yourself a chiltons manual at the library as there is a tightening sequence on all engines for reinstalling the heads.
Q: what MPG does a 1977 amc gremlin get?
i have a 77 gremlin that i want to put on the road but i wasnt sure how good the gas milage is.
A: It depends; several engines were available for your Gremlin including a four cylinder motor, from Audi; two OHV sixes (232 and 258 cid) and 3 speed / 4 speed manual transmission and the automatic.
The 4 cylinder 2.0 liter motor is kind of a dog; not enough torque for the vehicle, have to wind up the rpm’s to get it to go, usually somewhere around 25-28 mpg is possible, if you’re cruising at highway speeds with the standard shift. The automatic gets around 22-25 or so; the six cylinders were between 18-22 or so, depending upon the transmission and final drive ratio. All the figures are highway milage, expect less in city driving. The six cylinders are the best bet because of the ease of parts and low end torque; the 4 cylinder parts are expensive and hard to find.
The Gremlin is an interesting car, just make sure it doesn’t have excessive rust or cancer, especially in the undercarriage. Hope this helps, a car nut.
Q: where could i get an amc gremlin???
my dad and i are looking for an AMC Gremlin early to mid 70s do you know where i could get one??
A: Local newspaper
Local junk yard
You can even place an ad stating you are looking for one in your hometown paper
Q: Is it possible to convert my 1974 AMC Gremlin into a SUV?
A: Anything is possible, but how deep are your pockets? Define SUV, do you want 4wd/awd?
AMC had a 4wd version of this chassis in the 80’s, the smaller version of the Eagle was a Gremlin platform, so you might be able to find an Eagle SX/4 and do something, but it’ll cost you plenty.
I’ve seen small car bodies installed on truck chassis too, but they usually look really silly.
If you want an older and smaller SUV, try to find a nice clean Scout or Bronco (the original smaller one, not like OJ Simpson’s big one), you’ll be better off – unless you’re just shooting for something different.
Q: Question about a AMC Gremlin?
Were the AMC Gremlin’s built better than the Ford Pinto and the Chevy Vega?
A: The Gremlin had a slant 6 (I-6) compared to a Pinto’s I-4, which gave it a 0-60 run under 12 seconds compared to a Pinto’s 18 seconds. The engine was pretty bullet proof as well. Having had both, the Pinto was more springy and was difficult to get over 60mph, and burned quite a bit of oil. The Gremlin was harder to get parts for, but I could not kill the engine. We eventually cut the top off and made it a convertible after I gave it to a friend. I swapped engines in the Pinto before it rusted away. My other friends Vega was the worst one for rust. I would have to say Gremlin by far was the best.
Q: Has anyone ever owned an AMC Gremlin?……..?
Do you know anyone who has owned an AMC Gremlin?? What color was it? Was it a 3 speed? What year was it?
A: My Dad owned one. It was tan. I think it was a three speed. I think Dad has sold it, but it might be the one he kept. Since I was really old enough to pay attention, we have had a couple Jeeps (real AMC trucks, which I love and miss), a Javlin (the racecar – If I remember right, someone before Dad adjusted it a little to make it faster), a Concord, that was an ‘83 and I was sad when we sold it. Before I payed attention to what kind of vehicles we had around the place I know for sure I have heard a Rambler mentioned, and I’m sure there were others. Dad loved AMC vehicles. …………..I would like to get an AMC Eagle 4 wheel drive. Not that crysler “eagle” stuff. It’s too bad crysler bought AMC out. (
Q: what color was brite stinking orange referred to on a 1977 AMC GREMLIN?
What was it referred to on the windows sticker?
Not burnt orange
Brite Stinking Orange means BIG BAD ORANGE which isnt the answer
A: THERE IS ALSO TANGARINE ORANGE IVE OWNED 4 GREMLINS IN MY TIME AND BELIVE ME WHEN I SAY THIS I AM SO VERY SORRY THAT I EVER GOTE RID OF MY GREMLIN CAUSE THEY WAS THE BEST DARN CAR A PERSON COULD EVER OWN AND THEY ARE EASY TO WORK ON BUT HARD TO GET PARTS FOR BUT WORTH THE WAIT TO GET THEM AND THE GREMLIN IS A DIEING BREED AND NEEDS TO STAY ALIVE THANKS
Q: Is it bad that I would trade my girlfriend in for an AMC Gremlin ?
A: Which would yell at you after you locked them in a garage?
Q: is the ford pinto better than a AMC gremlin?
witch one is better the amc or the ford
A: I think someone’s thinking of the Pacer. The gremlin was actually a pretty good little car. The interiors were probably about even, but the engine availability from the factory of a gremlin was much better, not to mention that you could stuff a 401 in it using factory parts.
Q: Why is my wife shaped like an AMC Gremlin ?
A: You can get up to 5 stoned guys inside a gremlin at the same time.
Q: What makes a better chick magnet for my AMC Gremlin – Fuzzy Dice or a Pine Tree Air Freshener?
A: omg you are just too hot… a gremlin with fuzzy dice AND a pine tree air freshener… that would be too much to handle…. *hand to head..swoons and faints*
Q: DID you ever own a AMC PACER or GREMLIN new or used?
I had a GF who once had a 75 PACER she bought for $500 dollars in the late 80’s. The AC was broke, it was hotter than a greenhouse in Summer. Rode like a shopping cart with soft suspension, rusty, sucked gas, trim falling off every day, and the engine burned up after someone filled it with kerosene!
Same GF then owned a 76 Gremlin base model I bought for $400 dollars from a hooptie lot, sucked gas, underpowered, rode like a shopping cart, and I could never figure why the whole back didn’t raise up like a true hatchback instead of just that small rear window. Eventually the engine lost compression and it was knocking away, so sold it off to someone who wanted it as a fixer-upper.
A: I also had a 76 Gremlin, Front fenders were full of duck tape but ran like a top, i finally drove it to the scrap yard the day before i went into the Military, Payed 200.00 for the car in the early 1980’s and got 150.00 at the scrap yard. Not bad for 2 years of beating the “CRAP” out of it and only paying $50.00 for having a blast as a kid.
Q: i just bought a 71 AMC GREMLIN. what do you think?
A: Good for you…it’s a real pleasure to actually hear from someone who thinks “outside the box” (I’m getting sick of answering the “My Honda-Mitsubishi-Toyota-BMW- Mercedes … blah blah blah” questions!) Good luck and enjoy your Gremlon.
