Showroom in San Diego County. (Townsend Lincoln-Mercury in Carlsbad closed in July 2006.) This Townsend sold American Motors and Jeep.

The car is an AMC Gremlin, considered the first American subcompact when introduced in 1970. The car became so popular by 1973 that Levi's jeans was brought in to upholster a version that included map storage pockets with copper rivets and orange stitching.
