The 1971 AMC Javelin SST wanted that ideal mix of luxury and sporty. This example shows that style exceptionally well with its sleekly restored paint, distinct interior, and even nice comforts. And this is a highly documented classic that spent time with a true collector. So it has an impressive presentation right down to the correct V8.
The Limelight Green paint looks awesome, and that's because this car has all the right pieces going for it. The under 33k miles on the odometer are believed to represent the full actual mileage, and a comprehensive restoration in the late 1990s (we even have a copy of the car's feature in Muscle Car Enthusiast magazine documenting it.) If this sounds like a car that received exceptional care, then you'd be right. It's been in a collector's family for decades, and the new 1971 Javelin was a true stunner when it hit the streets. The long hood, fenders that bring extra emphasis to the wheels, sunken rear decklid with a hint of flying buttress, and form-hugging chrome bumpers - this is truly a unique style that also signals power. And we love all the details, right down to the white roof and classic American Motor hub caps. And it's great to have this presented so correctly because those who know their AMC history understand how rare it is to find an exceptional one over a half-century later. The premium Javelin SST had an annual production figure that equaled only about one month of the premium Chevy Malibu coupe's total 1971 production.
The hint of white on the roof also gives you a preview of the white upholstery inside. It's a pure 1970s cool style that looks terrific. And with a good look on the rest of the fundamentals, you'll happily keep all the windows down on this hardtop just so more people can get a look inside. This loves to show off its detailed vintage style with the working AM radio, unique white rubber floor mats, toggle switches, side-mounted glovebox, and plenty of wood-like trim. The SST is the premium trim, and that means comfortable features like high-back bucket seats, and a center console in-between. Of course, being a true sports car means the right driver features, like a dash that wraps around you, a horseshoe shifter, an AMC sports steering wheel, and full gauges with desirable tic-toc-tach.
AMC's 360 cubic-inch V8 is always great to see under the hood. This is believed to be original to the car, and it has a terrific look with a clean style and just the right hints to show originality. The V8 fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune out of the dual exhaust. Despite adding to the low mileage, you're going to want to cruise this coupe everywhere. It has a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, and there are more great driving features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
The sale comes with terrific paperwork, including the original bill of sale, the owner's manual, title documentation, service manuals, maintenance records, and the magazine feature story. There's even a car cover so you can tuck it in every night in your garage. This is an exceptional Javelin SST, so if you're a true collector, you know this hardtop is for you. Call now!
