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!
Filmed at Country Classic Cars in Staunton IL

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

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!

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

television's "Vintage Vehicle Show", learns why, among other things, the
interior of Jack's car is so unusual. More information about the "Vintage

1978 AMX Sport Compact Car
The AMC Concord is a compact and economical car by 1970s US standards,
produced by the American Motors Corporation for the 1978 through 1983 model
years. The Concord replaced the AMC Hornet and to some extent the mid-size
AMC Matador, discontinued after 1978 in a market moving to downsized
automobiles. Offered in four-door sedan, two-door coupé (through 1982),
three-door hatchback (through 1979) and four-door station wagon forms, AMC
sought to give its, by this time venerable, compact car an image of luxury,
class, and value. The Concord was AMC's volume seller from the time it
The car was available as a sports-oriented two-door hatchback AMX model
without any "Concord" badges or identification for the 1978 model year, as
well as the Concord Sundancer convertible during 1981 and 1982, an
authorized conversion sold through AMC dealers.
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
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.
