Australian Javelin and AMX Website

This site is dedicated to Javelin and AMX vehicles assembled in Australia. These cars, manufactured in the USA by American Motors, were imported in CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kit form and assembled locally by Australian Motor Industries, in right hand drive form. They were imported in very limited numbers and are one of Australia's rarest muscle cars. They were sold in Australia under the Rambler brand and were the only American muscle cars of that era to be sold new in Australia.

1969 Javelin
Back in 1968, a new Javelin cost $7495, that's almost twice the price of 327 GTS Monaro Coupe ($3790) and a lot more than you paid for an XT GT Falcon ($4200). You didn't get much in the way of options, the Javelin was fully loaded with all of the luxuries of the day. It came with a 280 bhp AMC 343 cubic inch V8 engine, three speed "Shift Command" automatic transmission and "Twin Grip" limited slip differential as standard equipment. They were basically the top of the line American model.

To give an indication of how rare these cars are, these are the generally accepted Australian build numbers:
         1968 Javelin    90

         1970 Javelin    70                   and AMXs were only produced
