As Tony said you can get 13's with the 360 and maybe even high 12's'
What might be nice to do is make a few passes with the 6 if it runs.
 
My factory stock v8 (304/auto) pulled 16-16.6 with 2.89 rear gear.
My drag Javelin, junk 360 (280H cam/291c heads) auto 4.56 rear gear ran 13's
 
So 13's in your Gremlin should be EZ
Keep us posted on the project.

No one answered this for you yet? Did you pick SS or BC/CC paint yet?
From the factory it was done in SS. Now you may not have a choice on what you can get for factory color code as there may not be information for the shop to mix BC/CC paint for you.
 
I am using a color close to the stock Commodore blue met. IIRC it can be mixed either way but I picked SS because I am doing it in my garage in stages, under hood, door jambs, trunk area then outside of the car.  
Also I only have to paint the car once with SS (3 to 4 coats) and not 2 time as you do for BC/CC (3 or 4 coats/3 or 4 coats). Yes you cannot get the depth of SS like you can with BC/CC but if you add a little more clear to the last 2 coats you can get more depth.
 
Just my .02

High 13's should be no problem with a decent 360 in your Gremlin! Are you going to keep the exterior as is for a "sleeper" look?

5  Tech Talk / Engine Repair/Modifications / Exhaust header for Spirit?

Hey!
 
Been awhile since I've lurked around here, but I'm back in the AMC fold!
 
Got a big question for everyone that messes with sixes, what do you use for a header? I bought two different ones a looooooong time ago, one is a Hedman single out, the other is a dual out (presumably Clifford, but I'm not sure anymore). Neither one wants to fit into my Spirit engine bay. I'm thinking they are both Jeep headers now.
 
Anybody have a good (cheap and quick) alternative to the cast iron monster I got rid of years ago?

Welp, I've been here long enough, I figure I may as well make a post about the junk I've been working on.
 
 

 

 

 

 
'73 Gremlin, 232CI straight six, three speed auto. It's a base model, which means no power steering, no carpet, bench seats, AM radio only, and my favorite; manual drum brakes on all four corners.
 
But it had A/C for some reason lol.
 
Anyways, plans are putting a bored .030 over 360 into it. 291 heads, later EGR style manifold (will be swaping that out later) with 600cfm holley.  
 
"Big Summit Cam" - .497/520 lift.  300/304 duration. More than likely too much cam for my combo.  May try to spray to compensate, but not for a long while.
 
Going to put a 20 into it.  Unsure of the gears I wanna go with.  Also going manual swap - just bough a clutch pedal and linkage assembly off fleabay.  On the hunt for a T10 and AMC bell housing now.  
 
Would be happy if I could reach high 13's when all's said and done.  We will see.
