NO! No way NO HOW...would I ever help some one find one.A gremlin is a good name because it belongs in the ground, not on it.You should get a pacer,or a valiant,maybe an allante or K car as well so they wouldnt get stolen or looked at or even recognized as transportation.
How anyone can be atracted to the purposeful sharp well defined lines of a cafe styled bike.....and be looking for a slip of the pen,marketing guys souless design of that era among a few others.

I dont car if you envision it as a wet sub,a dragster shell or a chicken coup in your yard, or even to saw it in half, as a school play prop!It needs to rest and not be seen in public ever EVER again.
E V E R !

That aside ....No, I dont know of one .....

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

wrong gremlins are and never were cool now or then.Now an AMX was so ugly it was cool and as understated as one could get back then try to find on now .Matter of Fact the amx should not even be.mentioned as being in this class. with the gremlin,but a gremlin is on the list of disposable cars with k cars even the convertables,maybe especially the convertables.Pintos (early ones were cool )valiants all those school teacher cars need to go away .Dick head gym teachers had gremlins little old ladys had gremlins a few v8 hot rod gremlins dont make them cool.You can stuff a v8 into anything even that saab.
Now vegas and pintos come into cheap ass hot rod based cars but even then the AMX is so much cooler.studebaker hawks and thier sibling models were so ugly they were and still are cool same era cars and american.

ok as a life time student of design,There are good designs and bad ones and ones that are simply wrong as they had the true designers tied up in the closet as the marketing guys and purse holders designed some crappy cars in those days and a gremlin is just one the K car is another,the convertable ones are worse...poor misguided people thinking they had a real classic.
Its a choice, I choose not to find the gremlin the least bit interesting with or without a V8.
The rest of you that like them,good well that is your choice.But please take all those other cars of that ilk with them as
Im happy not thinking about or seeing them again.
and no I still dont know anyone that has one.......
Geeto I see a Matadour in your future ..the smell of "Rich Corinthian Leather " is in the maybe its a Cordoba

amx javelin should be in the same market as barracudas,mustangs.chargers,scamps,camaros and the ilk.
Gremlins should be tazed...bro.
