Although little American Motors Corporation hasn't survived as a company, and Chrysler purchased the company assets back in 1987 in an attempt to acquire the Jeep brand, it hasn't prevented the son of the original AMC Gremlin designer into drawing up some updated designs if the AMC Gremlin survived. The result is this great looking concept car drawing.
Jeff Teague, son of Richard Teague who designed the Gremlin along with many other AMC designs such as the AMX, created these excellent new concept designs that retain much of the characteristics of the original 1970 1/2 Gremlin.
Love it or hate it, the original AMC Gremlins had a big influence on hatchback small car design automobiles of the 1970's and beyond, where designers all the way from Honda to the Volkswagen took the design seriously as basis for their own designs. Amazing for a car that only sold moderately from April of 1970 until 1978.
Gremlins continue to have a cult following among a loyal group of fans, where the cars still command a strong trade in cars and parts on EBay and elsewhere among collectors. A few years ago I managed to sell a non-running 1973 V8 powered Gremlin X for $2,800 on EBay. A very good price for any non-running car.
