Extremely Rare 1972 Javelin AMX original 401c.i., lose ratio 4 speed, ith Twin Grip differential and working A/C, ally-Pac option. Go-Pac options ordered separately and shown on window sticker.All original. This is a "toptier" Muscle car and one of the rarest muscle cars ever made. Only 825 Javelin AMXs were made in 1972 with the largest AMC engine, he 401c.i. with 430ft lbs of torque, nd only ahandfulhad 4 speeds. Estimates are 20-25 4 speeds built in 1972. Add the VERY RARE, xtra cost, pecial paint color Classic Black and the rare air conditioning option for the 401c.i. and you have one of the rarest of the rare. Probably 1 of 1 made, r at least, he last remaining one on the planet.

Very rare to find one like this.
This is one of the most beautifully styled cars ever. AMC designer Eric Kugerused influences from many muscle cars and the Corvette to design the Ultimate Muscle Car.At car shows, any people gather around it and are amazed at this car. You just never see these at all. You won't ever see one again in this condition. The time to buy one is when you see it.

Complete owner history: I have talked to the original owner who special ordered this car new from the dealer. She loved fast cars and wanted the best out there. She ordered this car the way she wanted it, tealth in black, nd faster then the more common muscle cars. She ordered most all of the Go-Pac options "a la cart" to have it optioned the way she wanted it. The car cost $5,000 new in 1971. She sold it in 1988. There have been only 3 other owners.Here is a quote from when I talked to the Original Owner (she bought the car new when she was 27 years old, raded in her 1971 Javelin on it. I have all paperwork and sales contract): "I purchased her from a dealer called State American in Schenectady NY in 1971-special order and thought it would never get here. The day that I drove it home two guys on I-87 in a Grand Torino thought they could go faster but I showed them who had the faster car--really loved that car."

Included in this sale is the box of the Original Owner's 8 track tapes. The tape player works perfectly and is great to show to the young kids.

Of course, he older people all have great memories of 8 track players.
If this were a 4 speed, /C Big block Camaro, uda, hallenger, TO, 42, ustang, tc., t would sell for $80,000+. This is a greatbargainfor a top of the line Muscle Car, nd will onlyappreciate as more people find out about these super-rare Muscle Cars.
