1972 AMC AMX Javelin
The AMC Javelin is a pony car that was built by AMC between 1967 and 1974 in two generations, model years 1968 to 1970 (with a separate design in 1970) and 1971 to 1974. The sporty Javelins came only as two-door hardtop (with no "B" pillar) body style, and were available in economical versions or as high-performance muscle cars. Javelins won the Trans-Am race series with AMC sponsorship in 1971 and 1972, and independently in 1976. The second-generation AMX version... was the first pony car to be used as a normal highway patrol police car by any U.S. organization. In addition to manufacture in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Javelins were assembled under license in Germany, Mexico, Venezuela, and Australia. They were also sold in other international markets. Sales of convertibles were dropping and AMC did not have the resources to design separate fastback and notchback hardtops that were available on the Mustang and on the second-generation Plymouth Barracuda, so the AMC designer team under Richard A. Teague penned only one body style, "a smooth semi-fastback roofline that helped set Javelin apart from other pony cars." The Javelin was built on AMC's Rambler American platform only as a two-door hardtop model to be a hip, dashing, affordable pony car, as well as available in muscle car performance versions. Despite management's insistence on things like good trunk space and rear- seat room, Teague managed to endow the Javelin with what he termed the wet T-shirt look: "voluptuous curves with nary a hint of fat." GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this beautiful 1974 AMC AMX Javelin. The car features its factory "P" code 360 v8 4 barrel with factory Ram Air. The car runs very well and the transmission shifts smoothly as it should. The manifolds were upgraded to Hedman headers and dual exhaust. The Jetset blue paint shows very well and the interior remains in excellent condition as well. The Javelin rides on 15 inch Cragar wheels with P235/60 BFG Radial T/A tires in the front and P275/60 in the rear. The engine is believed to have been rebuilt in 2011. The car has power brakes and power steering. The car comes with a service book and large stack of receipts pertaining to the car.
