The AMC Gremlin is a subcompact car from American Motors Corporation, introduced as a 1970½ model and produced through the 1978 model year. AMC reduced development and manufacturing costs by adapting a shortened compact Hornet platform with Kammback-like tail producing what was described at its introduction as "the first American-built import".[2]

The AMC Gremlin was introduced on 1 April 1970, six months ahead of subcompacts Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto.[3] It also competed with imported cars including the VW Beetle and the Toyota Corona.[4][5]

The Gremlin would become American Motors' best-selling passenger car since the Rambler Classic. From April 1970 through 1978, a total of 671,475 Gremlins were built in the United States and Canada. With a mild body restyling, the basic design continued with the AMC Spirit and the all-wheel-drive AMC Eagle until 1983."[6][7][8][9][10][3][11]
