How does a car-maker with no money for development or tooling add a new compact model to its range? Simple, they just chop the back end off a bigger one. From the centre pillar forward, the Gremlin is a Rambler Hornet, as built and sold in Australia during the 1970s. This car was a sixcylinder manual brought to Australia by importer AMI for evaluation. No, said the bean-counters and it was sold, eventually fitted with a V8 and returned to the USA about 15 years ago. There it survives in fine condition and still RHD under a new coat of the original Big Bad Orange paint.
