1968 AMC Javelin SSTFor sale, xtremely nice 1968 AMC Javelin SST. The car sat since the 80's in a Barn where it was discovered by the last owner, ho unfortunately could not get it back on the road. It was then purchased by my brother and I who completely stripped the car and put a nice factory look single stage paint job on it, n the original color. All brake hydraulic parts and brake hoses were replaced. The gas tank was removed and coated, uel pump and fuel lines were replaced. The radiator was sent out, leaned and repaired and the water pump replaced at that time along with the front cover gasket. The transmission fluid was flushed and filter replaced and all fluids changed. The odometer shows 29,000 miles and looks to be original judging from the mechanical components. (all original front end parts, ight/ no brake pedal wear)The car starts right up runs beautifully and shifts smoothly, his is an extremely nice driver. I would say the car is better than driver condition and would place in a local car show. The paint is very nice with only some small blemishes, owever from close-up it looks great! You could leave the car as is and enjoy it for several years, r add some small touches and take this car to the next level. The car has the 290 V8 rated at 200 hp. 2bbl carb, uto transmission.
Overall body and paint;Had a small amount of rust behind the rear wheels (typical) which was repaired with new patch panels welded in. Doors, enders, ood and trunkwere rust free. All paint was stripped, ody was straightened and a single stagePPG paint was applied (original color). All bumpers and chrome in nice original condition, ot perfect, ut very decent for the age. I would rate the paint and body work as a 7 out of 10, t shows extremely nice, owever is not perfect.Itis nicer than "driver quality" but not to the level of concourse. Upon very close inspection you will see small blemishes, ut looks great from 5-10 ft. away.The car would place in a local car show.
Interior;All original except new carpet, o ripsinextremely nice original condition.
Drivetrain;Nearly completely original, 90 V8 2bbl Auto. New water pump, uel pump, oints and filters. Looks like the transmission has a small drip when sitting and the rear main seal leaks a touch. Like I said this car is nearly original and has been sitting for more than 30 years. It starts right up, dles smooth, rives perfectly with virtually no noises. With that being said, NDERSTAND THE CAR IS ALMOST 50 YEARS OLD!!!!!All hydraulic brakeparts were replaced along with all brake hoses.
This is an extremely cool entry level cruise night/ car show car or car be driven daily. Or a perfect project for the father and son, ith very minimal improvements can be a spectacular AMC classic.Vehicle is available for inspection.
