So this followed me home.... 1971 Javelin

Post by Brads70 on Wed Oct 17, 2018 5:14 pm

Well.... don't shoot me but I just bought this "Mopar's red headed step child" to work on as my next project. Special thanks to Mike Kidd for driving me down to Wisconsin and tow dollying it back for me. It was a fun trip! I wanted another project as the Challenger is pretty much " done" how I want it ( other than a paint job) I always admired Mark Donohue and wanted to build a tribute car . He won the Trans Am championship with this car in 1971, a HUGE achievement beating Ford and General Motors , kind of a David vs Goliath story. Always admired the funky lines of this car. It has a 360 really wanted the 401 but couldn't be that choosy .... all in good time. Going to be a fun winter now! I'm sure the cops won't bother me huh? LOL Went to put on my rims and tires and found out someone had slipped a Chevy 10 bolt in there so the bolt pattern won't jive..... more things to do.... It's painted/lettered up like this car. Just have to build a spoiler.

I love those old Javelins, almost bought an AMX but was outbid by more than I could afford.
