If you were the American Motor Company (AMC) back in the Sixties your competition would have been the likes of smaller companies such as Studebaker and Packard. With the muscle car market booming and each manufacturer pushing out some iconic cars you sure wanted to push your version of a muscle car out if you were to stay relevant. And this is what happened with the release of the AMC Javelin in 1968. The Javelin was available in multiple trims and the hottest of them all being the SST trim sported all the performance bits which made it able to trade punches with the other hot muscle cars in the market. Why not relive AMC’s golden era with this 1968 AMC Javelin SST we have today. Located in Nevada and with a reported 59,000 miles on the clock, this is surely muscle car royalty which you don't see too often.
Standing out in the muscle car world can be tough. Manufacturers really pushed out some of the greatest automotive designs to simply fight it out. What's even tougher is if your competition included the likes of the iconic Ford Mustang. The AMC Javelin however looked the part and traded punches in terms of design with some of the automotive greats. This 1968 AMC Javelin SST with its Laurel Green Metallic exterior just goes on to show how AMC kept up with the ever-growing muscle car market, and succeeded in it. In addition, there are hints of black around the car. The hood scoop, front chin spoiler with struts, Rear window shade, and rear spoiler are all black in color giving the car a distinctive personality. The car also sports the original 1969 Javelin hood scoops and sits on a set of light brown Foose Knuckle 17" wheels which really compliment the green exterior. The interior is also a thing of beauty. The light beige theme matches the exterior perfectly. The seats have cocoa brown vinyl inserts as well as on the carpets. The interior is original with modified trim and carpeting. The modifications include an upgraded steering and A/C vents added to the car. The car doesn’t have an AC system, but the vents sure make this mod a whole lot easier to implement. There is a console box located between the seats for added storage and an AM/FM radio to pump out some smooth 60’s tunes.
Owning an AMC Javelin means you surely stand out but what makes this 1968 AMC Javelin SST even sweeter is the SST trim. This trim meant that you had the 343ci small-block V8 under the hood. When new the motor would push out an impressive 280hp but the seller reports that this 1968 AMC Javelin SST pushes out 400hp. It’s also reported that the engine has been rebuilt at 56,000 miles which is not too long ago. Power is sent to its rear wheels through a 3-speed automatic gearbox. The gearbox has also seen a rebuild although the rebuilt was done when the car clocked in 57,000 miles. In terms of stopping power, the seller notes that it’s got the “Best brakes on any cars I’ve driven” and this is thanks to disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear. The front brakes have been converted with original AMC parts when the car hit 57,000 miles.
