1969 AMC Javelin SSTHere's a top of the line, first-generation 1969 AMC Javelin SST with proper V8 power, four-on-the-floor, side pipes, and an awesomely slick appearance that will really turn heads.
AMC always did things a little differently, and for those who pay attention, the rewards can be huge. For example, the model number tells us this is a premium SST coupe, and when you add in Kenosha's legendary low production numbers, you've got a cool classic example of rare American muscle. But this coupe's desirability goes beyond just rarity. The Candy Apple Red is a bold color with plenty of metallic that loves to radiate in the sunshine. There's even more added shine with the form-fitting chrome bumpers, crisp trim, and those rocker shields drawing your attention to the side pipes. Even with all this luster, your favorite parts might just be on the nicely coordinated dark side. It shows off sporty pieces like the dual hood scoops, side SST stripes, and the rear spoiler. And there are terrific details everywhere from the color-matched red insert inside the Cragar SS wheels, to the AMC dealer tag on the rear. So the total impression, is bright, sporty, and quite thoughtful.
The black accents of the exterior get you ready for the full black interior. High-back bucket seats, taut door panels, and plush carpeting with Javelin logo floor mats are all part of a well-done package. And the wood-like trim is a reminder of the SST's upscale nature. There are even well-integrated details, like the AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette added to the stock radio housing. There's valuable info from the SunPro gauges in the center console. The wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your left hand, and your right one will love the Hurst shifter. And it all goes well with the large speedo and tach.
AMC's 343 cubic-inch V8 is a great power package, and this year-correct block is even believed to be original to the car. Of course, one look at this engine bay and you can see this classic motor benefits from plenty of more recent investments. There's a full MSD upgrade with the electronic ignition, Blaster 2 coil, and distributor. Plus, you'll also spot good wires, hoses, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. Those hood scoops you like to see on the front help channel cool air into the intake that seals to the hood. That feeds a four-barrel carburetor on top of an upgraded Edelbrock intake. And headers feed the side pipes to give this Javelin a wicked growl. So the full package fires up readily, runs strong, and delivers terrific muscle car power. You are in firm control of it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, power steering, power brakes with front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As complete a package that makes this powerful coupe a fine driver, too.
It will be hard to find a classic coupe that looks this good and is rare enough to draw serious attention, even if you paid double the price. Don't miss this deal. Call now!
