So apparently in 1979 AMC in a last-ditch effort “styled” the Gremlin, and Called it the AMC Spirit. I found out about it because I found on on CL today, the seller is also offering a 66 Marlin.
Here’s some pics of the glorious thing. You can see they grafted on the Eagle’s nose. This car did debut the same year.
This model was Called the “sedan” which I can only assume was done as a joke. Especially since the Gremlin was just a chopped up Hornet, which was available as an actual sedan. The rear end is pretty wild tho. I like it.
