1972 AMC Gremlin X 304 Muscle Car Of The Week Episode 330
Loyal viewers have seen this ‘72 Gremlin X before, but today, we’re driving it. We first featured this purple 1972 AMC Gremlin X in our Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show coverage, so you’re not seeing double. There are times when we’ve featured cars from The Brothers Collection at events when we couldn’t shoot them in motion, so when we had the chance to wheel this little 304 V8 powered X-box around a bit, we decided to have some fun with it. This car generated a lot of commentary for sure. While there were some who didn’t think the stock 304 was worthy of a “Muscle” title, many pointed out the performance potential of this quirky little car. Just because this Gremlin has a 304-cube V8, the timing was all wrong for this one. By ‘72, AMC’s little troublemaker had the life sucked out of the 304, now reduced to 8.4:1 compression and gasping through a little 2-barrel carb. So it’s only good for 150 HP… does that mean it’s not a fun ride? Not hardly. The interior is super basic, but it does have a 3-speed manual on the floor. And even though it’s got a light curb weight of 2900 lbs., it still only equates to about 1 horsepower per 20 pounds of Gremlin. Which means 16.80s in the quarter. A street racer it isn’t… at least not stock. Gremlins were designed and built to be economical and practical cars, but it’s interesting to see how AMC added muscle-car elements to the car… like silver rally wheels wrapped with raised white letter Goodyears, disc brakes, a traction-bar rear end, and cool gold stripes. Driving the X is fun, but it makes us wonder what this car could have been if it was born just a few years earlier, and was powered by the Hurst SC/Rambler 390, for example… now THAT would have been a sleeper! You can learn more about this little monster in Episode 285 of Muscle Car Of The Week. A well rounded collection benefits from a wide variety of cars, and cars like this one add some fun to The Brothers Collection. It’s not the fastest in the bunch, but is sure turns heads.

Top 5 Videos - Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode 326
5. Muscle Car Of The Week Video #21: 1970 Dodge Super Bee 440 6-Pack This 1970 Dodge Super Bee is not the car you want to drive if you don't like attention. This Top Banana Yellow example from the Brothers Collection is not only visibly noticeable thanks to the bright color and white interior and stripes, but the 440 6-Pack Pistol Grip under the hood causes a stir on the street anywhere you go! 4. Muscle Car Of The Week Video #69: 1969 Hurst / Olds http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - Back before 1970, GM had a mandate that limited the engine cubic inch displacements in midsize "A" body cars like the Chevelle, GTO, and Cutlass 442 to 400 cubic inches. However, George Hurst and Doc Watson were able to create a special version of the Olds 442 that broke the mold, and allowed for an Olds 455 to be installed and sold through Oldsmobile dealers. Called the Hurst / Olds, these cars came to be in 1968, and by 1969, they were widely known for their outlandish styling, fully-loaded option list, and excellent performance. This example from the Brothers Collection is an unrestored survivor, an original car that was driven often... the way Hurst would have wanted! 3. 1969 Camaro Vs. 1969 Mustang: Muscle Car Of The Week Episode 266 V8TV Which would you pick, the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS396 with the 375 HP L89 aluminum head big-block and a 4-speed Muncie transmission, or the 335 HP 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet 4-speed? Tough choices for sure, especially with these two fine examples from The Brothers Collection! 2. 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R: Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode 229 V8TV The original GT350 hit the streets… and tracks… in 1965 and is still regarded as one of the most capable American performance cars ever built. The ‘65 was a no-nonsense purpose built street legal racer in a Mustang 2+2 body comprised of hand-picked parts and smart modifications made by the Shelby team in Venice, CA. It was light, nimble, and basic, and it rocked on the street or track. The Shelby name has since been applied to just about everything you can think of, and there is no doubt that some Shelbys remained more true to the original concept than others, but the 2016 GT350R is one hundred percent deserving of the snake and stripes. From The Brothers Collection. 1. Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode # 179: 1967 Shelby GT500 427 Side Oiler http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - The ‘65 and ‘66 Shelby Mustangs were very successful cars, but Shelby upped the stakes for ‘67 by introducing a big-block version of the GT cars with the GT500. However, this one takes it up another notch with a 427 "side-oiler" V8.
