1970 Javelin

In 2020, we received a donation of a 1970 AMC Javelin. After many discussions we decided it would be a great opportunity to restore this car and use it as an opportunity to fellowship. The staff and clients in our Vehicle Donation Shop have spent time restoring this beautiful car and getting it ready for summer. 

This is an absolutely exceptional example of this mostly original surviving (apart from one repaint) 1970 AMC Javelin NON SST 2-door hardtop coupe with the rare and highly desirable ‘X’ code factory optional ‘Go Package’ with the 390 CID 325 HP 4 BBL V8 engine matched to a close ratio Borg-Warner T-10 4-speed transmission with a ‘Hurst Competition Plus’ floor shifter, dual exhausts, heavy duty suspension with a larger diameter sway bar and heavy duty springs and shocks, Twin Grip differential, Traction Bars, Quick Ratio Power Steering, a pair of overlay fiberglass Ram Air hood scoops, and a specially designed air cleaner for better breathing.  This car also boasts the added ‘Big Bad’ options of mag-style wheels, power disc brakes and a 140 mph speedometer and a big-faced tachometer.

The car has been repainted in its original “Big Bad Orange” (Colour Code 3A) colour with correct factory ‘C’ stripes along the length of the mid-body of the car with a custom black leather interior (Trim code 061J).  Further factory options include the half vinyl roof and passenger side remote mirror.

This car is 1 of only 1,632 1970 390 V8 4-speed cars.  It is also 1 of only 8 NON SST cars produced in Big Bad Orange colours with the 390 and a close ratio 4 speed.
