In 1970, AMC released the Gremlin, a two-door dynamo born from the Hornet's DNA. It was a bold retort to the invasion of subcompact foreign wheels on American soil. They were light, efficient, and notably higher in quality than the domestic offerings. So, in order to become a flattering option, AMC had to combine the well-liked characteristics of American vehicles with the advantageous novelties of Japanese cars. Despite competition from the Vega and Pinto, the Gremlin more than doubled its sales by the second year of production. One of these examples was given away by America's longest-running television game program, The Price Is Right (TPIR). What you are looking at here is exactly that specimen: a 1974 AMC Gremlin X with only 1,757 miles on its clock.
Being an original "The Price is Right" giveaway car carries that trait for the rest of its life. It's a perfect conversation piece and what makes that car unique from the rest. With its eye-catching yellow exterior accented by black stripes, our subject 1974 AMC Gremlin X, stands out even more in a crowded parking lot or busy street. New tires gripping retro chrome wheels accentuate its profile. The car is guarded by chrome bumpers, and as you walk around it, you will see more chrome accents enhancing its aesthetic appeal. The pronounced Kammback tail is a distinctive touch to its silhouette and is topped with a subtle spoiler. As the breeze with efficient air conditioning fills the cabin, you can enjoy the retro radio with Bluetooth powered by a discreet amp. Further, a striking black and yellow steering wheel that mirrors the car's exterior highlights the interior of this 1974 AMC Gremlin X.

Despite its appearance as a small compact car, this 1974 AMC Gremlin X is powered by a potent 360ci (5.9L) V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission. The current owner has amped up the experience with a Griffin Aluminum 4-core radiator and an electric fan shroud.
