You may have seen on the show that we got this little monster in the shop a week or so ago. And no, I’m not talking about Tom. I’m talking about this 1974 Gremlin X.
Now why the hell did I buy a Gremlin you might be wondering? Well, the Gremlin X is actually a pretty collectible car.
The X package was introduced in 1971 and featured unique body styling, badges, special road wheels, bucket seats and most importantly the 304 cubic inch (5.0L) V8 engine. For an economy car in the 70s, this little guy packed a punch.
We found this little car on the interweb in California. I thought it was pretty cool, and my sister Daphne used to drive one, so I thought I would get it an taunt her with it.
I don’t want to do too much to this one because surprisingly, these cars are pretty collectible! That is going to be up to the next owner to put their unique spin on it whether they restore it or turn it into a dragster or something. We basically want to get this one running, driving and stopping and bring that paint back to life.
