The Original Owner Wanted a New AMX in 1974. After Visiting Several Dealerships Locally There Were No AMX's Available Anymore. It Was The Last Year They Were Produced - 4,980 AMX's Out Of 27,696 Javelins.
After Seeing This Car on The Lot With Optional Side Stripes They Opted to Have The Dealer Add All The AMX Options To This car To Make It An AMX.

"They're Only Original Once"
Racing Javelin AMX's Won The Trans-Am SCCA World Titles with Penske Racing/ Mark Donahue Teams in 1971, 1972, and 1976. Drivers Included George Follmer and Mark Donahue. These Cars Regularly Competed With the Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger
Since My Ownership I Have Checked Over The Car to Make It Roadworthy. New Battery, Alternator, Plugs, Wires, Tune Up, Replaced The Fluids, and Filters, Etc. Tires Have Less Than 200 Miles On Them.
Items Requiring Some Attention: Radiator Should Be Re-Cored, and Possibly a Shroud Added. Tends to Start To Run Warm On Real Slow Cruise Type Situations For an Extended Period Of Time - Never Overheated. Brakes Should Be Gone Thru - Discs Front / Drums Rear. Believe the Rear Drums Could Used Turned Due to Long Periods Of Sitting / Possible Internal Corrosion. The Car Does Stop Fine For Now.
The Car Does Have a Couple Small Areas of Rust ... Behind Each Rear Quarter Panel Wheel Opening, and and Area or Two Along the Cowl, and A Pillar Area ... They Have Been Treated / Touched Up and Have Not Appeared to Spread Any Further.
Car Has Always Been Garage Kept or In An Enclosed Trailer.
Car Has A Clean CA Title in My Name, Currently Registered, and Insured.
