1973 AMC JAVELIN - FOR SPORT-MINDED AMC BUYERS
This is what AMC produced this year: Gremlin, Hornet, Javelin, AMX, Matador, and Ambassador Brougham. The Javelin came with a 6 cylinder, 232 cic. with 100 bhp., or a 258 cid. with 110 bhp. The V8 engines available is the 304 cid with 150 bhp., 360 cid. with 195 or 220 bhp., and a 401 cid. with 255 bhp. This example has the base V8 304. The Javelin hardtop coupes with either the 6 or 8, produced a total of 22,556 units. The Javelin AMX only had 4,980 units manufactured. This Javelin is a low mileage and well maintained example. Notice the rally stripe on the side matches the perfect vinyl roof. The roofline stretches down to the rear end forming sort of a fin. The paint surrounds the rare window which is surrounded by the vinyl roof. Other features that attracted buyers to the Javelin was the long hood and sculped shape, rakish windshield and the abrupt ending rear deck. AMC's market share swelled to over 4%, the highest in years. A Javelin with a 6 cost $2,889, the Javelin with an 8 cost $2,983, and the AMX cost $3,191. Many thanks to you for viewing this 1973 AMC Javelin.
