Description:

1971 AMC Javelin SST

No reserve auction on this 1971 AMC Javelin SST. I intended to restore this one but now need to sell for financial reasons.
CAR HISTORY: From what I was told by the previous owner, vehicle began life as a 6 cyl. in California. It somehow made its way to Rhode Island where the previous previous owners were taking steps to make it into a drag car. They bailed on the project, and sold it to the people I bought it from. I drove it for several years until the brakes went out and parked it. Running when parked, engine is not frozen, has been sitting for years. I did oil up the top end when parked. Odometer shows (1)01591 miles, believed to be original.
SPECS: Clear title. 1973 401 V8 V-8, EST. 90,000 miles. Holley list 3310-6 750CFM vacuum secondary carb. 727 auto trans. Unknown rear end. Manual steering, manual brakes, drums all around but as part of my resto plans I have a full front disc setup and a used power brake booster and master cylinderin the trunk that goes with it. Carpet torn out, seats there but need recovering, not tied down. Removed HURST slapstick and added in an original AMC floor shifter and console, neither tied down. Standard 120 MPH gauge set, Rally steering wheel. Rear defroster, blower type. Some rust holes in floor, trunk, rear quarters and top of right fender. Otherwise pretty solid and straight. No accident damage that I see or know of. Rear spoiler. Frame has been tied and heavy duty springs installed in front, with 2 extra full leafs on each side in back - it sits nice. Right inner rocker seems solid, left inner rocker rusty. Some small holes in the d/s floor. Has 3 of 4 14x6 8 slot rally rims, I have no idea where I put the 4th one. Good glass, good chrome, someone stole most of the emblems. P/S door only opens from the inside, or can use the outside handle if pulling on the inside at the same time, will need adjustment. Steering column has key broken off in it, another column with a good key comes with it. Dash crash is a replacement with a different VIN but the original VIN tag is in the ashtray. Ran when parked, but now when I went to start it again in anticipation of selling it there is no power to the dash or ignition. Does have brake lights and hazards, so I know the circuit is complete, but something else is off with it. Tried to replace the main harness fusible link with a straight wire just to get it started, but that didn't work. So some troubleshooting required there, I don't have the time. Has a 73 Javelin grill in mostly good condition, lower right section broken and a few small cracks. Can ship with either the hood you see on it, or the cowl induction hood also pictured, your choice at time of purchase. Cowl hood has good fiberglass but had the mesh and some other metal cut out of it for some ungodly reason -that can be replaced. Had a mouse problem that has been removed. Sold as is as shown in photos as described in the listing with no warranties expressed or implied. Battery not included. Missing rear package tray and inside lower valance trim crumbled from sun damage. Most interior trim there. Decent headliner. Some aftermarket gauges that never worked for me that I remember. If you have additional questions or want more specific pictures please contact me. $500 non-refundable deposit required via Paypal or certified funds within 48 hours of auction end, balance to be paid with certified funds within 7 days. You must arrange shipping with your choice of transport company. Pickup only after certified funds clear the bank. Available for local viewing and also for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction at any time.
LOCAL PICKUP IS ALWAYS AN OPTION ON ANY ITEM I HAVE LISTED IF YOU ARE CLOSE AND WANT TO SAVE EVEN MORE BY AVOIDING SHIPPING COSTS!!
EBAY ANNOUNCEMENT (from the seller item summary screen before listing an item) - As announced this spring, to reduce unpaid items eligible fixed price and auction-style listings purchased with Buy It Now will remain for sale unless the buyer pays right away. That means buyers must first add items to their eBay Shopping Cart to purchase multiple items with a single payment. PLEASE USE THE SHOPPING CART AND THE REQUEST TOTAL FROM SELLER LINK THAT IS TO THE RIGHT OF THE SCREEN ACROSS FROM THE SELLER'S NAME WHEN PURCHASING MULTIPLE ITEMS! THIS ALLOWS ME THE CHANCE TO PACKAGE THE ITEMS TOGETHER IN A SINGLE PACKAGE, WEIGH AND PRICE THAT PACKAGE TO YOUR ZIP CODE, AND SEND YOU AN INVOICE THAT REFLECTS THE COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNT. THANKS
Shipping cost includes delivery confirmation for your protection and mine.
ALL ITEMS WITH A COMBINED FINAL SALE AND SHIPPING COST OF OVER $250.00 WILL BE SHIPPED SIGNATURE REQUIRED TO ADHERE TO THE BUYER AND SELLER PROTECTION RULES EBAY HAS, PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS WILL HAVE SOMEONE AVAILABLE TO SIGN, OR THAT YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO PICK UP AN ITEM FROM YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE IN THE EVENT DELIVERY WAS ATTEMPTED BUT NOBODY ANSWERED.
ATTENTION NON-USA BUYERS - PLEASE LEARN ABOUT EBAY'S GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM. THOUGH WELL INTENTIONED, IT FORCES YOU TO PAY SHIPPING TWICE - ONCE FOR ME TO SHIP TO THEIR EXPORTING SERVICE HERE IN THE USA, THEN AGAIN FOR THEM TO EXPORT IT TO YOU. EBAY'S LISTING TOOL AUTOMATICALLY SELECTS THIS PROGRAM FOR EVERY LISTING A SELLER CREATES AND SOMETIMES I FORGET TO UNCHECK THE BOX WHEN TRYING TO LIST MANY ITEMS IN A SHORT TIME. TO AVOID PAYING THIS DUPLICATE SHIPPING CHARGE AND MAKE ITEMS MORE AFFORDABLE TO YOU, YOU MUST CONTACT ME PRIOR TO BIDDING ON AN ITEM SO I CAN MAKE SURE THE PROGRAM IS NOT SELECTED FOR THE ITEM. IF AN ITEM ALREADY HAS BIDS I CANNOT CHANGE THE SHIPPING SETUP AND YOU WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM IF YOU BID. I WILL ONLY SHIP DIRECT FOR ITEMS UNDER 4 POUNDS. ITEMS OVER 4 POUNDS MUST USE THE EBAY GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM. ALSO THERE ARE MANY COUNTRIES WHERE THERE IS PROBLEMATIC DELIVERY SERVICE, SO NO DIRECT INTERNATIONAL SALES UNLESS YOU CONTACT ME PRIOR TO BIDDING AND I AGREE TO SHIP TO YOUR COUNTRY. SHIPPING CALCULATOR DOES NOT APPLY TO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. I GIVE NO GUARANTEES FOR DELIVERY IN YOUR COUNTRY SINCE TRACKING MAY NOT ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE. YOU ASSUME THE RISK OF A SUCCESSFUL DELIVERY THROUGH YOUR COUNTRY'S POSTAL SERVICE AND REMOVE ALL LIABILITY FROM ME ONCE A PACKAGE HAS BEEN SHIPPED. NO PAYPAL CHARGEBACKS OR RETURNS ON INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK ONCE IT LEAVES MY HANDS. I WILL NOT MARK CUSTOM FORMS AS LESS THAN THE ACTUAL PRICE PAID FOR THE ITEM, DO NOT ASK ME TO. THAT IS ILLEGAL AND A FELONY IN THE US. THANK YOU!
ILLINOIS RESIDENTS MUST ADD 9.25% SALES TAX.
See my other items, it's all gotta go!!! I will ship within 48 hours of receipt of payment unles it's out of the country and the sale ends on a Friday or Saturday, or media mail, since I have to go to the post office during business hours to send those. Everything else will go through the 24 hour kiosk so I can ship at any time. Please don't ding my stars for USPS shipping times, I am not them. I want to be able to continue offering great items like this to all of you!
Thanks for looking! PLEASE become a savvy eBay shopper and when you are looking for the best deal on fixed price listings, change your search results 'sort' selection from 'best match' to 'price + shipping - lowest first'. The 'best match' may not be the best deal for you!
If you are pleased with the product and service from me, please make sure you leave top marks on all detailed sellers ratings (star ratings or DSRs) when you are leaving feedback. If you are not satisfied please notify me of the problem so we can try and resolve any issues before leaving feedback. On a normal 1-5 scale, 1 is poor, 5 is fantastic and 3 is average. Ebay has made changes to their feedback system where 4 is average to poor and only 5 is acceptable. Please keep this in mind when leaving feedback, thanks!
I pride myself on the fantastic service and 100% feedback rating that I have with well over 3000 transactions in the last 10 years including several hundred repeat or multiple purchase buyers, and would like to continue providing great items to you at fantastic prices. Please help me continue providing great items to you at fantastic prices by leaving top stars in DSRs! (Hey, that rhymes - top stars in DSRs!!)
THE QUICK TAKE ON MY EBAY PRACTICES:
Please use the shipping calculator to price shipping to your area if it is not marked with a fixed rate. Some more expensive items that should have insurance on them may have insurance included in the purchase price. Please see auction details to see if any of this applies to this auction.
Please view my other auctions to see other items that may interest you that can ship together to save shipping costs. Payment by Paypal unless... you know the rules, you must ask me. Payment in US dollars only. Payment by foreign currency will be returned and negative feedback left. Buyer pays actual shipping costs as described in listing or by quote if not. Don't forget to check my other auctions, and maybe even bookmark my seller's list when you get there - I sell a lot of of items besides car parts! Read the details in the listing, the title is 80 characters and not always long enough to be the full description!
Ask questions and request more photos if you're unsure! Please, really, I mean it.
Refunds on undamaged items only and only with good reason. "I changed my mind" is not a good reason.
"The part doesn't fit" is not a valid reason - did you read the description?
Buy the right part for your car. I know AMC, not the other makes. You know your car and its parts much better than I do.
If I misrepresented an item that is a good reason - if I state conclusively that the piece is exactly for this car. If I'm not sure I will say that, and ask you to be the judge.
I will not refund shipping costs on a return IF I agree to a return and it is your responsibility to pay the shipping to return an item to me.
Most items ship USPS
Shipping damage claims should be directed to the shipping company, not me. USPS offers insurance oin items under $100 for priority mai, and I pay for insurance on items over $100.

You are getting the item in the photo, I don't use eBay's stock photos (and even if a listing has an eBay stock photo, I still include my own picture of the item).

Please take the time to read my new and improved (and shorter) selling policies. This is to prevent misunderstandings between purchasers and myself, and is in everyone's best interests to fully understand:


Return Policy/ Warranty Disclaimer: All items are sold as is with no warranties expressed or implied. Descriptions of items and condition are based on physical inspection at or prior to auction listing. Items which state a level of functionality at time of listing does not extend any guarantee of same operation or functionality upon receipt due to the possibility of shipping damage (but if I say something is functional then it means I did check it before listing - I don't sell junk as jewels). Every item I list has a minimum of one picture and bidders can request additional photos, closeups, details, etc. at any time via e-mail. Additional information requested through e-mail will also be posted to the auction if it pertains to the saleability, or lack thereof, or corrected application, of the item.


Shipping/ Damage Policy:I try to determine the most cost effective shipping on an item between UPS and USPS and offer shipping accordingly. Buyer pays stated or actual shipping costs via USPS or UPS ground, 50 state U.S. and Canada sales only unless as noted. Stated shipping costs may include a materials fee - bubble envelopes, packing peanuts, and the daily news does cost money! Some items may require specialized packaging - for those I state additional packaging costs in the auction listing. You wouldn't want your oil painting on canvas to ship in a brown paper wrapper, would you?

Poor Feedback/Zero Feedback Policy:I welcome new ebayers to my auctions! After all, we all had zero feedback once. But, I've been burned a few times by ghost bidders that disappear after the auction end, so on any item that exceeds $250 from opening bid or from bid escalation, I reserve the right to request your contact information through eBay services. I may also refuse bids from bidders with poor feedback ratings, or bidders that I have had negative prior dealings with, at any time for any auction at any price. Legitimate bidders are welcome!
Shipping Policy: About me: I am an antiques and collectibles dealer, and I'm an automobile enthusiast (specifically the American Motors Corporation/AMC Javelins and AMXs). If an item interests you and you have any questions at all about the item, please e-mail me. You might know more about the item than I do. Be specific with your questions and I will answer them to the best of my ability. If I am misrepresenting an item due to my lack of experience with your specialty, please educate me and I will update the ad with corrected information provided I can verify your statements through a third party such as a Google search. Links to informational sites are appreciated. I do not clean or recondition items unless as noted in the ad, usually only to confirm condition of the item where condition may be hidden by dirt or grime. I leave restoration up to the successful bidder. I am not an expert on other makes/models of vehicles either. Again, please ask questions! Request additional photos! If I'm listing parts for other makes/models it's because I ran across them and would rather see the parts get to a fellow car enthusiast who can help better their car with them, than see them go to the crusher.
Thanks for visiting, and happy bidding!
