Tribute to the Randall Brothers 401-XR
The Randall Brothers was a dealership in Mesa, Arizona that converted 304 CI Gremlin X’s to a 401 CI monster
The 401’s were never “factory” in a Gremlin, but were in the Javelin and Matador
AMC sent 20 401 engines to the Randall Brothers for conversions, making the original 401-XR’s extremely rare
X stood for the AMC factory appearance package and R for Randall Brothers
XR’s ran the ¼ mile at 117 mph in 12.3 seconds
