Here’s a 1961 Ford Falcon that is for sale a few blocks away from me. It’s a two-door sedan with a 170 cid. (2.8L) straight-six backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The interior looked like it was in decent shape up front, but had a blanket over the rear seats so they’re probably shot. The dash, door panels, front “buckets”, and console all looked like they were pretty clean though.
I got my FREE sticker in the mail from Team Slide Asylum! 🙂
It will be probably be going on the Gremlin in the spring. Also note the Fel-Pro gasket boxes under it, they’re for a 1996 AMC 4.0L that will be swapped into the Gremlin ;D
These pictures were taken in September of ’08 I believe, but I just dug them up now 😉
It’s a homemade looking trike that was spotted in Lockport, Illinois, and it appears to be powered by a VW air cooled engine. That’s my Gremlin parked next to it.
Oh yeah, and I just noticed that Voxx is in the back seat of my car in the first picture. Double wtf.
I bought a clean set of Illinois ’72 plates off eBay for the Gremlin. In Illinois (and probably a lot of other states) if you have AV (Antique Vehicle) plates you can keep them in the car and display a set of historic license plates from the year of manufacture. Normal AV plate restrictions still apply to the vehicle though.
I also bought a Lindberg AMC Gremlin “Grabber” model kit, it’s 1:20 scale. Most Gremlin models and miniatures seem to be modeled after a ’74 Gremlin, which has different bumpers, different grille, and four vertical impressions on the c-pillar instead of the two large horizontal ones that mine has. The paperwork says this one is a ’71, so it’s the same as my real ’72 except for the V8 air filter coming through the hood…which isn’t factory in case you didn’t know 😛 The plan is to try stuff out on it to see what will look good on the real thing. That being said, I need to pick up some model paint and find some more suitable wheels and tires for it.
