Evaluation: Showing 50,150 miles. Scratched original chrome and brightwork, and significant pitting on the taillight bezels. Some minor chips, scratches and cracks but the paint is mostly impressive and a little too good to believe it’s original. The wheels look newer as well. The carpets and switchgear are a little faded but the Levi denim seats, arguably the best part of this car, look great. This car has never been restored but why would it be? Being a Gremlin it’s graded on a curve, so it must be among the cleanest ones out there.
Bottom Line: Decked out in denim thanks to the Levi’s package and flashy on the outside with the Gremlin X appearance package, this car is about as loaded and as clean as anyone could hope for from a mid-70s AMC product.
The only thing it’s missing is the optional V-8, but you don’t buy a Gremlin to go fast and it didn’t seem to matter to the bidders, anyway. What drew them to this car were the looks and the fact that you hardly see these cars anymore. Remarkably, there were two Gremlin Xs in this sale and they both sold extremely well. Lot T39, a Big Bad Green example, sold for $18,700 but this one’s condition and equipment pushed it even higher.
