Hydrogen Gremlin 1972

    It turns out that experiments with hydrogen fuel for cars were in full swing 40 years ago. Live evidence of this is now auctioned off by eBay - it's the 1972 AMC Gremlin homemade hatchback .

    Sold for $ 9,000, pickup from Florida.

    Huge hydrogen cylinders lie right in the trunk.

    This car is one of a kind. It was made in 1972 by UCLA university students specifically for the competition for the most innovative car and is one of the earliest experiments in this area. The Gremlin conversion model was provided by American Motors, and parts were donated by several companies, including General Motors and Ford. In particular, Ford provided the Boss 351 engine, which was converted to hydrogen.
