HARD-TO-FIND JAVELIN, 304Ci V8, AUTO, DUALS, PWR STEERING, AMC WHEELS! It had water damage very early (70’s, that had no effect on the frame) in it’s life and is the reason for the rebuilt title. Nobody has been able to explain why the very rare and unique AMC Javelin has not kept pace with its Big Three counterparts. This cool 1972 AMC Javelin is an off-brand pony car that offers a lot of performance and originality for the guy who dares to be different. Ask questions, I am completely transparent with this great looking Javelin. This would be a great father/son project car to build out or drive as is. Check out the video below for starting and driving. A little late to the pony car game, AMC finally jumped in with the Javelin, which offered their unique take on the long nose/short deck look with 2+2 seating. This car is a good 20 feet car, it is not a show car. No, it’s not perfect or even close, but with a deep cleaning and a fresh coat of wax, we bet you’ll get more than your share of complements on this out-of-the-ordinary car. The color is high-visibility and with a chin spoiler, bulging fenders, and a ducktail on the back, it won’t be mistaken for anything else. I’ve always found the Javelin’s front end to be particularly attractive, aggressive without resorting to scoops gimmicks, and this one includes nice chrome, proper badging, and the full-width taillight out back, all details that make these cars stand out in a crowd. It is missing a headliner so that will need to be added if you desire. The stylish and funky interior is largely original and has a very 1970s look that will appeal to some guys who love that period. Front seats will need reupholstered or drive as is. It has black carpets that are nice and with a center console with armrest, it’s easy to get comfortable behind the wheel of this Javelin. That’s a 3-speed automatic shifter sticking out of the console, and GM probably wasn’t too happy about that particular design, and it includes an AM radio, which is probably due for an upgrade. The back seat is shockingly nice and doesn’t look to have aged a bit and the reasonably spacious trunk is outfitted with a space-saver spare tire. The 304ci V8 is surprisingly potent but will need a tune up and possibly a carb kit (was rebuilt in 2011) , and the cool thing here is rarity: when was the last time you saw one of these hammering down the track? Thanks to an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and intake manifold, it’s a bit stronger than stock and chrome valve covers and a Weland air cleaner dress things up a big. Coupled to the 3-speed automatic gearbox, performance is more than adequate and it turns out that it’s a lot of fun to drive.
