1973 AMC Javelin Description:

1973 AMX Javelin RESTORATION PROJECT CAR *RUNS AND DRIVES* Includes Replacement Floorboards, Rocker Panels, Much More

This is a 1973 AMX Javelin that runs and drives beautifully. It has a powerful V8 401cui engine, automatic transmission, factory black paint with gold racing stripes, and a navy/black interior with leather front bucket seats. It has approximately 70,000 original miles on it. The AMX is a piece of sports car history, with more muscle than the Mustang and twice as cool as the Cobra.

The vital electronics all work (ignition, lights, blinkers, etc.). New tires and brakes, brake lines, fuel lines and tank, brand new headers and dual exhaust were installed before it was retired to the barn. Also a complete tune up was done at that time. As you can see from the photos, large parts of the floorboards are gone, with areas of rust throughout the front and back seats (all replacement floorboards are included in this auction). Aside from the floorboards, the body is mostly rust-free, with small spots on the fenders and doors . Here's a list of everything that comes included in this auction:

  • 1973 AMX Javelin (runs and drives)

  • NEW front right and left floor pans (not installed)

  • NEW front right and left inner rocker panels (not installed)

  • NEW front right and left outer rocker panels (not installed)

  • NEW black carpeting (not installed)

  • Three original AMX sport wheels with tires

  • Cosmetic hard plastic rear window louvre (not installed)

  • Spare transmission

  • Spare hood

  • Spare taillight assembly

  • Historic 73AMX Michigan license plate

  • Miscellaneous interior and exterior parts (trim, door handles, mirror, etc.)

This is being sold as a restoration project car, which comes with many of the new parts to complete the restoration, but it runs and drives like a dream. This auction includes brand-new replacement floorboards and rocker panels, new black carpeting, and more (see a full list above) – everything you should need to get this car back into safe, comfortable driving condition. It sat in a barn in Indiana for the past several years and started up on the first try at the end of July 2019. It was an abandoned family project car and needs a good home with someone who can restore it to its former glory. The trunk key has been misplaced, and I know that there are parts in the trunk, but cannot list them here as I can't remember exactly what's in there. They are also included in this auction.

**NOTE** After receiving a few questions about the engine size, I wanted to add that this car originally had a 360 engine, but it was replaced with a new, 1973 AMX 401 engine along with all the body emblems and trim, complete.***

Here's a (very) short list of the work that was done to this car to get it where it is today:

  • Replaced fuel lines and ignition assembly

  • Replaced all four tires and complete brakes, rotors, drums, pads, shoes, and brake lines, etc.

  • New headers and dual exhaust

  • Recored radiator

  • Recoated gas tank interior

  • Complete tune up
