Boss 351 powered Gremlin!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/AMC-G...07549616QQrdZ1

I saw this on Ebay, and at first I thought it was cool just that it was made some 30+ years ago as an alternative fuel concept...but then to see the drive train it's running! A Boss 351 with a 4 speed and 9 inch rear! Maybe it's just me, but I thought it was kind of cool!
I particularly found it funny when you look at the last pic of the front end...the bumper cover has been removed, and it's got what looks like a tire tread across it, like someone split a tire open and tacked it on the front!

Cool car!

The ad has a link to an article discussing the car and the hydrogen project. http://www.engineer.ucla.edu/history/hydrocar.html

It found it funny to read that: "General Motors donated a 1972 Gremlin and Ford Motor Company a "Boss" 351 cubic inch engine." Probably left overs from a "competitor product evaluation program" or something.

A blast from the past. Nice project for some one. It's a shame it has just been sitting all these years. Check out the bumpers with the tire treads on them. And it has got to be fast, look at all those stickers
