Greased Gremlin BW


Description

The Greased Gremlin in a Hot Wheels Original Model that is based upon a heavily modified 1972 AMC Gremlin. The hood has to be altered to fit the ginormous engine. The front fenders has to be cut out to accommodate the eight exhausts. A push bar was mounted on the front and the back. A large wing was mounted on the roof and the driver's seat was moved to the center of the car for maximum visibility. A roll cage was added to keep the driver save when crashing the car during high speeds.

In 1987 this model has seen its last release. It was retooled in 2008 for the 40 Years of Hot Wheels Set.
