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!

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. Please comment and subscribe, thanks! PS the SST sold 2 months after this video and the Plymouth has long since been restored and turned into a daily driver.
