This weeks interview is with Mark Greenisen, owner of a very cool AMC Gremlin. This car is built for pro-touring and won fastest autocross time at the 2016 Car Craft Summer Nationals! It definitely turns heads and laps.

The chassis is a Schwartz Performance G-Machine unit (a Mustang chassis that was modified for the AMC) with adjustable coil overs and racing style sway bars. To slow the car down Mike installed Baer Pro-Plus 14″ rotors with 6-piston calipers front and back.

Believe it or not, but the engine is still all AMC! It’s a 360 AMC V8 with Edelbrock intake and carburetor and a GM Turbo 350 behind it. The Gremlin also sports a custom driveshaft, Moser 9” full floater, 31 spline axles, and a John’s 9” Factory third member with WaveTrac differential.

Body mods include the front fender opening moved up 3.5 in for clearance and stock Gremlin X fender flares grafted to rear quarter panels for more tire space. Existing body panels around the bumper areas were massaged to fit better and smoothed into the bodywork.

You can find Mark on Facebook at, you can see more about the car at Schwartz Performance Facebook at Mark says there is even an upcoming Car Craft article about the Gremlin.

Thanks Mark for the interview
