bought this car (saved it from the crusher) as a restoration project with my son. divorce has forced a sale and with deep regret we need to depart with the project. this vin number indicates it’s an original 390 4-speed car. door tag says it’s an sst with a rare blue interior. if all true, the car appears to be pretty rare. ((planethoustonamx.com (long-time amc reputable source) has suggested only 2730 produced. of that, i do not know how many were 4-speed cars)
i do not have the original title but i do have: new york state department of motor vehicles retail certificate of sale for the vehicle (with vin#), vehicle purchase agreement from the dealer whom i bought the car from (with vin#), and the ny state registration renewal card from the previous owner dated back to 1980 (with vin#). (see pic). all of them have matching vin numbers so obtaining a new title (if required in your state) should not be a problem. in illinois these documents are acceptable for a title replacement. but if you are unsure of your state, you can always use broadwaytitle.com. they are very good and easy to use.
i believe this car is a mark donohue edition (original spoiler, options, etc) but as most amc enthusiast know without original dealer documentation to prove it’s authenticity, it’s simply a javelin. most of the interior is there (blue door panels, blue seats, kick panels, dash parts, 140mph speedo, etc.) but of course it needs restoration. all the glass and mechanisms are there but missing the outside window trim.
the body is relatively solid (for a 44 year old car). most importantly the areas of concern are sound. i.e. shock towers, windshield a-pillars, roof, radiator support braces, leaf spring mounts, etc. doors are ok with a few dings. ram air hood and trunk lid have slight surface rust on the undersides but are also in great shape. however it does need fenders, quarters, and inner rocker panels (as do all amc javelins). trunk floor pans and seat floor pans are ok.
the car has a 3:54 axle with no drive train. i am listing the car as-is and the price does not include an engine or transmission.
the car is in dry storage and can be seen by appointment. it took a lot to save this car and i had it shipped from ny to keep it from the crusher. i know i could recoup my costs and make a profit by parting it out, but as a life-long amc collector, that goes against every fiber in my being. so, i would like to sell the car to someone with intentions to restore it (or at least lie to me and tell me you will) and prefer not to part it out. the price listed is exactly what i have into the car. i don’t want to make money on it..only to pass it on.

Item location: Naperville, Illinois, United States
