Among all that chaos, an unexpected commercial success would shake everything, the AMC Gremlin. The American Motor Corporation, which would end up integrated into Chrysler years later, created a good-looking two-volume as an answer to the efficient utility cars imported from Europe, using parts from other well-known AMCs, but with a "radical" truncated rear end, in order to save development costs.
The Gremlin was not a head-turningly beautiful car, but rather the opposite. But it achieved iconic status without too much effort. Even Hans Topo has one, what can I say!
The guys at MotorTrend have revisited this curious concept car through a dilapidated unit. Don't miss it in the video above.
