The 1970 Javelins featured a new front end design with a wide "twin-venturi" front grille incorporating the headlamps and a longer hood. It also had a new rear end with full-width taillamps and a single center mounted backup light. This was a one-year only design. Side marker lights were now shared with several other AMC models. The exterior rear view mirror featured a new "aero" design and in some cases matched the car's body color. The three "Big Bad" exterior paints continued to be optional on the 1970 Javelins, but they now came with regular chrome bumpers. Underneath the restyle was a new front suspension featuring ball joints, upper and lower control arms, coil springs, and shock absorbers above the upper control arms, as well as trailing struts on the lower control arms. The interior for 1970 was also a one-year design featuring a broad dashboard (wood grained on SST models), new center console, revised interior door panel trim, and tall "clamshell" bucket seats with integral headrests available in vinyl, corduroy, or optional leather upholstery. A new two-spoke steering wheel was available with a "Rim Blow" horn. This '70 AMC Javelin SST is said to be a rust free California car that has been with the same family since 1979. Mechanically the car went through a rebuild of the engine with new rings, bearings, timing gear and chain set. The motor was in good condition when it was rebuilt so no boring was necessary. In 2011 adjustable rocker arms were added and the timing chain was replaced along with the gear set. In 1996, the interior and exterior were said to be redone and the car has been kept in a garage since. The paint on the car is still in very good condition and with no major blemishes or imperfections. The body is straight with both doors shutting tight and as they should. Both front and rear bumpers are in very good condition and have a good shine. There have been side pipes installed that look great and sound even better! This is an original SST car. Inside, the blue vinyl interior looks very good with no significant wear. The seats are all in good overall condition with no tears or rips. There are a few spots of wear which is expected for a car of this age. The carpet does show a bit of fading and stains. The wood grain dash looks good overall but does appear to be original for the car and has some scratches and dings. There has been an AM/FM 8 track stereo installed that works with no problems and sounds great.Under the hood, the 360 Cu In V8 runs great and is connected to an automatic transmission that shifts as it should. This is a power steering and A/C car. The engine is nicely detailed and very clean. It shows that during the paint job, the car was disassembled and motor was pulled for a quality repaint. The trunk includes a full size spare and jack and is solid. The underside is solid and has had new floor plans installed. VIN number is A0A797P109092 and the mileage shows 68,264.
