1968 AMC Javelin SST 343 c.i. 4 bbl from North America


Unique and worthy challenger to the big 3 pony cars


I had to rebuild carberator and replace water pump.

General Comments:

Very quick car that handled exceptionally well due to its wide track.

1974 AMC Javelin AMX 401 c.i. from North America


TOO much fun to own and drive


The interior was where the problems lived.

Bad door panels, door locks and window crank mechanisms.

The shifter was loose feeling.

Parts are difficult to find.

General Comments:

This was my favorite car of all I have ever owned.

The body style was unique, the performance was outstanding and it was simply a FUN car to drive.

I owed a 1973 Javelin and I had the same interior stuff, but it was a fast and fun car to drive.

Javelins are very unique cars that are hard to find, my family has two of them and they are great cars to learn how to rebuild and make as beautiful and fast as they were originally meant to be. For as old as they are, in my opinion they have held up well and are definitely worth the time and money to restore. The AMC Javelin is the hottest muscle car out there!!

I saved my 73 Javelin from a 16 year life of sitting in a walnut orchard in Dixon Ca. in 2004.

It's been a lot of time and work to get it to where it is now, driveable.

The body is straight and the motor is strong, so I had a good base to work with. I consider myself lucky, and rewarded with a great car. It's a 360 4v 4speed car.

I don't think I will ever finish the car, but it has been a labor of love. I find myself constantly staring at the car and imagining what it would look like with a new paint job.

How do you remove the fenders off a 1974 javelin, they seem to be welded on?

The fenders are brazed on to the outer rocker panel from the factory. I have no idea why, but they are. Could be to help attach it to the body and stop any squeaks while driving. To remove the fender, you have to cut the braze weld. I just did mine, and when I reinstalled the fender, I brazed it again right where the factory did it.

I like the Mark Donohue Javelin as my first pick. Street legal model.
