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!
