AMC Gremlin Levi Edition

In the early 1970s, American Motors took a classic and they added denim to it, making it even more of a classic. The result was the AMC Gremlin "Levi" Edition. An economy car upholstered with Levi jeans. The Gremlin Levi is now highly prized by collectors.

About the only good thing you could say about the Gremlin is that American Motors tried.

I remember those, there were a lot of them around. Ugly little car but with a V-8 it must fly.

The Gremlin was the Hornet with the back end chopped off, making for a cramped rear seat area in an otherwise acceptable car. And patty, most of those Hornet / Gremlins were economy cars so the six cylinder was standard.

As an aside, I had an argument with a friend when Chrysler purchased AMC about the death of the AMC brand. He insisted that the more successful models would go on for a few years. I told him that the only nameplate Chrysler was interested in was Jeep. I won twenty dollars over that one.

Along with the Pinto, the Gremlin body was one of the most popular to adorn racetracks of the North East for the '70s and '80s.
