Engine & Drivetrain
The engine has less than 5,000 miles on the rebuild. It was
originally a 304/automatic car. An engine swap has been made and it
is now a 1969 390 cubic inch short block that has been bored .030
and fitted with cast Badger pistons, crank was modded to accept the
Torqueflight converter hub, heads off a 1978 Matador 360 and have
been fitted with new valves, Crane springs and retainers, rocker
stands milled down to accept Crane Ford 1.7 ratio rocker arms,
Summit cam with 214/224 andr lifters.
It is topped by an Edelbrock R4B intake with an AMC Part Number and
an Edelbrock 600 CFM carb #1406 carb that's been tuned to run on
today's gasoline. Ignition is via a Delco distributor with a
Pertronix Ignitor III and an MSD Blaster coil (red).
Exhaust is through next gen "free flows" with full dual exhaust and
it has a new timing cover and chain set, factory type fuel pump,
new fuel tank, rear to front fuel line replaced, Facet Gold-Flo
fuel pump, and a Mallory pre luber oil pump.
Power goes back to a Torqueflight 727 transmission that came out of
the same '78 Matador as the heads and was rebuilt by a local
Orlando specialist some years ago, and works perfectly. It sports a
TCI torque converter and deep aluminum pan and is shifted by the
original '70 shifter.
The rear end was completely rebuilt rear end last year with a
complete rear axle and installed a 3.54 gear set, new posi, Dr.
Diff one piece axles, all brand new brakes, shoes, hardware, wheel
cylinders, and drums.
The brakes have a Reman booster, new master cylinder, and a Kelsey
Hayes front disc conversion and it rides on 14x6 "Magnum" wheels
with correct AMC center caps and like new BF Goodrich 215/70 14's
Radial TA's tires.
The interior consists of a set from a '74 Javelin that have been
recovered in black perforated vinyl with door panels and headliner
recovered as well, Legendary carpet set, all gauges from Auto Meter
like the 160 mph Speedo, 8K tach, oil pressure, vacuum, fuel level,
engine temp and volt meter.
It has real mahogany wood overlays on dash and console, aftermarket
radio and speakers, new retractable shoulder belts in front and new
lap belts in rear from Juliano's, and a tilt steering column and
sport steering wheel.
It also has a modern Vintage Air heat/cool/defrost unit with a
Sanden compressor that blows cold with a low 40 degree output
through the two center factory outlets, one eyeball outlet at the
lower right of the dash, and a vent under the steering wheel.
The exterior paint job is the original Big Bad Orange color that
has been repainted. The bumpers have been re-chromed and the rear
bumper has the factory style bumper guards.
These cars did not have wheel well moldings but a set from an early
1967 Camaro have been made to fit and they look pretty good. All
glass is good and the windshield has been replaced.
The paint scheme looks very aggressive and has great body lines
flowing over the Ram Air hood scoop and is set off by the black
side stripes too.
This 1970 AMC Javelin SST we have here for sale at Adventure
