1969 AMC Javelin SST 343 cu in

Summary:

Fantastic fun

Faults:

Needed a new starter motor after a couple of weeks.

Suffered from overheating problems and misfiring. After trying a number of things, eventually all problems cured with a recored radiator.

Plan your journey carefully. The 12 gallon tank is only good for around 150 miles!

General Comments:

This is a very unusual right-hand drive version. Great fun and not difficult to maintain, even for a total amateur.

Bags of performance, even after 35 years, but is better still as a cruiser.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wonder how many Javelins there are in the British Isles?

Too few, certainly!
