This is the muscle car too many have forgotten.
It’s easy to feel like all the classic American muscle cars sell for monstrous prices, but that’s not actually true. Case in point: this 1972 AMC Javelin SST is being offered for just $24,900. Before you think for that price you’re not getting an impressive ride, know this AMC has won quite a few awards at shows, thanks to a well-done restoration which addressed the exterior, interior, and underbody. This is a beautiful car a lot of people would be proud to own.
First of all, that Butterscotch Gold paint is jaw-dropping gorgeous, plus it’s the original color of the car. It pairs rather nicely with the black cowl induction hood, an aftermarket addition along with those fantastic side pipes. However, the split vinyl roof and rear spoiler are factory-original features. Everything comes together to make this muscle car a real head-turner without trying too hard.
Under the hood is a 360ci V8 engine the seller believes is the factory-original, but that’s not known for sure. It has been rebuilt by an AMC engine builder and runs strong. Bolted up is a 727 automatic transmission which also works smoothly. An AMC Model 20 rear completes the drivetrain.
This AMC has been judged in the recent past, scoring a very impressive 193 out of 203. The interior achieved a perfect score and looking at the pictures there’s no wonder as to why. Every last detail is accurate, with all materials in excellent condition, including the wood-grain dash inset and the horseshoe shifter.
Too many people these days don’t even remember or never knew about AMC, so they’re not thinking of the Javelin when looking for a classic muscle car. Designed by Dick Teague, the AMC Javelin features clean, simple lines which make it attractive, even to people who are ignorant about its existence. If you want an affordable way to own an old muscle car in good condition or are looking for something a little unusual for your collection, this car could be a great solution. 4-Wheel Classics is handling the sale, so contact the dealer to make an offer or to ask questions.
