1969 AMC Javelin

1969 AMC JAVELIN CHANGES & UPDATES
In its second year, the AMC Javelin changed only slightly, most carrying over from the prior year. The changes included revised side striping, a new front grille with a bull’s eye emblem on it, the upgraded trim. There was now an optional stripe package with a large C-shaped stripe that covered most of the sides. The optional Magnum 500 styled steel wheels were no longer chrome, but now came with a stainless steel trim ring. Inside there were new door panels and carpeting along with a new 8000-RPM tachometer. Later model year cars got a cowl over the gauges.
1969 AMC JAVELIN OPTION PACKAGES
Option packages with outlandish names abounded. The “Go Package” was a performance package for 343 and 390-equipped cars and included front disk brakes, “Twin-Grip” limited-slip differential, heavy duty suspension, and E70X14 performance tires on Magnum 500 wheels. The “Mod Javelin” package, introduced midyear, had a roof-mounted spoiler (inspired by top speed racer Craig Breedlove), simulated side exhaust rocker trim, and blacked out hood scoops. The “Big Bad” paint options gave buyers the choice of 3 wild day-glo colors (Neon Brillian Blue, Orange and Green) with color-matched painted bumpers front and rear, with few takers. All 4-speed cars got a Hurst floor shifter. Total production of the 1969 AMC Javelin was 40,675.
