There’ t not much info. that comes with this list for a 1972 AMC Javelin SST 401, apart from the vehicle comes from the lister’ s Grandmother who bought the car from the girl AMC Dealer father and include the original window sticker. About twenty three, 000 SSTs were made in 1972, so it’ s not an enormous rarity. This one clearly needs function, but could be made into a nice task in the right hands.
Although it’ s labelled because Grandma’ s car, at the time of purchasing the car was with a young lady in a hot new muscle vehicle. Like all things we age with time, but we still can be valued for the contributions in the past. The SST was the base model for the Javelin in ’ 72. In ’ 71 it was above the base design, so she definitely struck this lucky with year choice.
The car has been sitting for several years and clearly needs a full repair. It does run, but will need a complete work over. The interior is mostly unchanged, but clearly needs addressing in every areas. The exterior of the car appears in reasonable shape, but some from the shots of the rusted floors display surface rust which may go much deeper.
The engine is really a 401 cubic-inch V8, 4-barrel along with 255 hp, originally a $161. 60 option and comes with stock A/C. It may not seem that much nowadays, but a worthy contender since it was heading into the restrictions plus downsizing of the mid-70s.
For the asking price of $6, three hundred and fifty. 00 and top prices generally being around $15k at present, this might possibly be worth restoring.
