1971 AMC Javelin AMX
I thought you'd like a look at this very nice 1971 AMC Javelin AMX. It's
powered by a 360 V8 with an aluminum intake and 4 bbl carb. The exterior
has been repainted and it features the flat black T style striping on the
hood. The interior is mostly original and features a nice set of gauges.
It's a nice looking car and something I don't come across very often. I
hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

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. More information about the "Vintage
Vehicle Show" can be found at www.vintagevehicletv.com.

throughout this magnificent machine. And the sound of that engine was just
brilliant. After a 2 year build, it was well worth the wait. We look

This is my 1972 amc javelin with a freshly built 401 punched 60 over with
custom Ross pro pistons, head work, cam ect.. my machine guy curt and
Ifrom south vally machine are expecting very close to 500hp I have been
building this car for 2 years still looking for some parts to complete it
all interior is new or cleaned up on the parts you cant get new. this car
was striped down to nothing media blasted top to bottom and the paint is
about 4 months old i stuck a 73 grill on it cause my 72 grill was destroyed
and im trying to find a amx tub grill for it but there are very expensive
and hard to find so the 73 will do for now i have done a cuda a few Mustangs this has been the hardest
car to do almost there soon i will be able to drive it and see what it can
do the amc javelin community is destroying these cars because they drive
up the parts so much you cant even afford to buy the parts and that why
you dont see many of them because they are such a headache to do and its
cost me more $ and headache's then my cuda did
Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
