About This Car:
This is a very nice and very well sorted 1968 AMC Javelin. It is coming out of long-term California ownership.  The paint, chrome, interior, engine, engine bay and underneath are extremely clean.  This car is a strong driver and handles nicely. It has a great stance and suspension.  You can tell upon first drive that the person who owned this cared very much for the car and it shows.  The engine and exhaust sound amazing and the drive is electrifying.
