A little pin striping job 7/29/01 by Johnny A.
This show stopper classic is available for sale for only
$6500.00 The car was featured in Hemmings Motor News "Special Interest
Autos December 2002 with a 6 [age article. It was also Ms. January 2003 in
Hemming Motor News "Orphans" Calendar. This 72 Gremlin took a
Bronze plaque at the 2000 AMC Nationals, it's very 1st showing anywhere
after the restoration was completed.
After I was the legal owner of this car, we had it
completely restored. Fortunately this didn't involve much.. the chrome was
basically good, had the seats reupholstered and a complete paint job that
too months of fine tuning so it was perfect. I added the AMC mag wheels, had
them polished to a chrome like finish, added the roof rack and the sport
steering wheel and sideview mirros.
In November of 1972, as senior in High School, I bought my very
first car, a brand new 1973 AMC Gremlin. It was Diamond Blue with a blue interior,
automatic transmission and that was about it! It cost $2400, my father said at the time,
it cost me $1.00 per pound!
This picture was taken autumn 1973 in the Catskill mountains of New York State.

I owned another Gremlin later on, a 1976 and several more cars
after. Being married to a car nut, I kept asking him to find me a Gremlin to restore, and
although he laughed at me, being a Chevy man himself, he was silently searching.
Late July 1998, he found a 1972 Jet Sky Blue Gremlin. I'll be the
third owner, the second only keeping the car for several months. He had bought it from the
original owner. Only 92k miles, garaged all these years, the car is in amazingly great
shape. No pitting on the bumpers, the dash and door panels are perfect, the power steering
and AC function like new and very little rot and rust. I have the original receipt for the
car, $3134.60, purchased at American Motors Sales Corp, Fordham Rd, Bronx, NY on 12/9/71
