1973 AMC Javelin AMX
When is a Javelin also an AMX? Jack Boughton explains how he came to own this unique 401 cubic inch Javelin/AMX and what he's done since the day he drove it off the lot when it was brand new. Lance Lambert, host of television's "Vintage Vehicle Show", learns why, among other things, the interior of Jack's car is so unusual.

1970 AMC Javelin SST abandoned 30 years, first look.
Here is a car my brother just bought. He has been looking to speculate on old cars and look what he found....
This is a '70 AMC Javelin SST, possible Mark Donahue edition. The owners widow allegedly has a stack of paperwork to this car so we are crossing our fingers there is something to document a real Donahue car.
This is Tijuana Tan metallic, 360-4V, Safe Command power brakes and power steering.
It is very original and unmolested. The story goes is the original owners bought it, drove it until sometime in 1979 when the trans went out. The husband started to pull the trans out, but passed away suddenly.
His widow left this car and 3 others where they sat for the next 31 years. They literally had to spend a week cutting down the forest to get them out.
This Javelin wears vintage Cragar-type wheels, has the requisite add-on 8 track player also!
I will get more video and photos as we progress through clean-up and mechanical evaluation of this AMC.

One last short burn-out with my HOT 1969 AMC Javelin
In June of 2008 I was forced to sell my beloved 69 Javelin because of medical problems that my wife was having, and loss of work time, and pay, to be by her side no matter what it takes. The bills still keep coming in, and I need to turn her into cash. My 1969 AMC Javelin 1 hour before the new owner picked up the car. I have owned for almost 40 years. It has a built 343, 30 over, Crane cam & kit, Hooker Headers, Offy 360 manifold, 4 speed, 3:91 posi rear, Lalewood tracton bars. It is a very strong runner, and I am still crying over the loss, that will never be able to be replaced. The second part of the clip is my sons 1968 AMX. At least he will carry on the AMC tradition in the family. Maybe he will let me get behind the wheel sometime. UPDATE!!! Nov 2008... The new owner has informed me that he had blown the motor up, iy only has 9000 miles on it since a total restoration almost 25 years ago. Way to go!!!! I should have sold my Corvette and kept my Javelin. Boy did I screw up!!!
UPDATE 3/04/2012. I once agin have a smile on my face, as I just purchased a fantastic looking BBG 1969 AMX. It sounds and looks a lot like my BBG Javelin.
Here is the link to the day I picked up my new ride,
