1976 AMC Gremlin AMT 1:25

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum , Paulo !

That Gremlin is perfect ! Its stance is right out of the 1970's here in the United States ; very good !

Were AMC vehicles sold ( or even manufactured ) in Brasil / South America ?

I am looking forward to seeing more nice build-up kits from you :D

hello John Shoe!
thanks!
I never see any Gremlin or any AMC car. Even in meeting of old cars I don't see any :/
Someday when I go to USA as tourist, I try to see any AMC car, and some others.

Have a friend of mine who used to run a Gremlin down the 1/4 mile.He only had a Chevy small block.He said it was the most difficult car he's ever attempted to get down the strip.The short wheel base had the car dancing all over the place.I really like your build.Gremlins are cool cars now.I love em.Now we are seeing them at car shows.Either custom/drag,pro street,or bone stock.And then there is the Holy grail of Gremlins,the Gremlin X.I think they had 360s,or 301s.I can't recall,I just know the car had a V8.Ah AMC.

Welcome Paulo to the Forum dos gringos. 

People here is great, well maybe with the exception of Harry, that will get into your skin if you forget the rearview mirrors...

By the way, great choice on car. i'm not into the Brazilian forums as most of the posts are about Euro or Japanese trash. Not to mention the guys there have the "king in the belly" as we speak, and can only criticize.
