‘75 AMC Gremlin. Inline 6, 3 speed stick, nothing auto, no A.C., power nothing. The engine is long and lean like a John Deer tractor, lots of room to get to stuff. As AMC wasn’t a “real” car company, they got parts from like everybody. Thus no concerns about somebody going out of business and parts drying up. There are very few parts actually. Ugly as **** as well so NOBODY is going to steal this thing.

My Gremlin, fondly referred to as The Lead Sled, could use a very large screwdriver as the stick shift (which I needed to do on occasion). The locks didn’t always work so I only needed one key to start it and a rope from the rear hatch to the interior drivers door handle, in the event that the exterior door latches failed. Would run an -27 F below zero, but took a week to get started. Mine was school bus yellow.
