1971 Trans Am Javelin AMX
This AutoAcademics video of a 1971 Trans Am Javelin AMX replica shows the
attention to detail during the car's restoration. The nostalgic paint
scheme and every sponsor graphic is just as it was on the original Penske
race car. A beautiful 4-year restoration done very well. Contact

Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.
1968 AMC Javelin SST 343 V8
I thought you AMC fans might like a look at this very clean 1968 Javelin
SST. It's powered by the 343 V8, equipped with an Edelbrock 4 BBL carb, an
Offenhauser aluminum intake, and long tube headers. It's a nice straight
car, that is ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for

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!

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
