Here's a top-of-the-line, first-year 1968 AMC Javelin with a stunning color combo and an enhanced version of the correct V8. So as you look at all the details, you'll realize that all the investments in this classic sports car make it desirable well beyond its obtainable price.
<br><br> AMC always did things a little differently, and for those who pay attention, the rewards can be huge. For example, this is the first year for the now-legendary Javelin coupe. Add in the SST premium package and Kenosha's legendary low production numbers, and you've got a cool classic example of rare American muscle (only around 26,000 were produced.) But the coupe's desirability goes beyond just rarity. The original shade of Rally Green Metallic has been treated to a professional respray that lets the deep tone radiate in the sunlight. And this quality paint also loves to highlight the sharpness of the sheetmetal. This has a great street machine look with double redline tires, mag-style wheels, bright dual exhaust tips, and dual white racing stripes painted on top. Plus, these AMCs had a terrific sense of style with wide front and rear bumpers integral to the design more than just about any other '60s coupe.
<br><br> You're going to love showing off this interior. It was upgraded to a tasteful tan later in life, and so it remains quite clean and fresh today. Not only is it a timeless color combo against the exterior's deep green, but it also has great details, like the textured seatbacks and Javelin script in the floor mats. There are great vintage features, including the stock AMC AM/FM radio that's there for display. And this is even a factory air conditioning car (it's been converted to R134a but it will need servicing to blow cold again.) It's also a proper driver's coupe with bucket seats up front, a center console, and an upgraded wood-rimmed sports steering wheel.
<br><br> Under the hood is AMC's 290 cubic-inch V8. While this is the correct-style motor for this first-year Javelin, you can also see there have been some solid investment in upgrades. This includes an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD distributor, and Hedman headers feeding the dual exhaust. The V8 fires up nicely and runs strong to make for a terrific cruiser. Plus, you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs for great all-around cruising.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with restoration photos, title documentation, and the owner's manual. 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. Call today!!!
