March 2, 2023, Update – We confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found, we’re assuming this ride is “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

Have you ever spent any time in the Southeast United States in the summer?  It tends to get very hot and humid.  Consequently, we completely understand the seller’s subtle upgrade of a Vintage Air A/C system in their otherwise stock-appearing 1970 AMC Javelin SST, last listed in January 2023 on Craigslist in Monroe, Georgia (Atlanta).

The only other non-stock item we notice on this Javelin is an older Audiovox AM/FM/Cassette in-dash stereo and a pair of rear deck-mounted speakers.  Otherwise, this restored example features a potent 390 cubic inch V8 mated to a console-shifted Shift Command three-speed automatic.

Last offered for $33,500, Classic.com, the analytics and search engine for the collector car market, confirms the ask is slightly below the one-year rolling average of this guide’s summary for AMC Javelin SSTs produced between 1968 and 1970.  By clicking on the green dots in the graph below, you can navigate to each comparable car sold as a way to help you evaluate the price of the Javelin featured here:

The American Motors Corporation (“AMC”) Super Sports touring, or “SST,” was the top trim available on the first-generation fastback Javelin that debuted for the 1968 model year and lasted until 1970. AMC offered SST-trimmed Javelins with both six- and eight-cylinder engines mated with either manual or automatic transmissions.
