True Stories of The Muscle Car Fan: AMC Exec Passes Javelin AMX With Go Package

4th Generation AMX passed down to grandson

This story is from one of our Muscle Car Fan Members. His Grandfather Ted Walters was an executive with AMC Motors and worked with the High-Speed Stop Division. Ted spent his career working for Hudson, Nash, AMC and Chrysler.
This is part of the story as told by his Grandson Brad Mathis.
The car is grasshopper green w white vinyl top, gold t-stripe, and green interior. Ac, rear defrost, tilt, 727 auto 401 w true cowl induction, factory fiberglass hood, front disc, Posi rear end. Aka “go pac” car. Interior is original and perfect thankfully.

Just learning on the Javelin with my grandfather, and father to fix anything it needed. I think I was about 12 when I first started falling in love with the car. I believe I was 13 when I first drove the car in and out of the garage supervised of course. Not long after just in/out of the garage I began to sneak the car for joy rides…..I remember my dad/mom getting a call from a neighbor who decided to crash my little party. They soon hid the keys and began to write milage down. After that, I found a 1973 Gremlin, my first purchase at about 15, then moved up to my 69 AMX 390 4sp that I beat to death driving daily to high school from about 98-2001. After I finally killed the 390, a friend I found out had a beautiful 70 AMX 390 4sp car locally and willing to sell. I borrowed some money from my dad and got it! Both cars I still own and are in great shape but need some TLC. My focus was always to fix up the Javelin so both cars still sit. Now w 3 young boys Braeden 8, Bryson 4, Owen 1 I can only hope to afford to finish them for their high school cars. The Javelin is now a fourth generation car and very loved by all of us. My AMC addiction is a true passion I live daily….I have added to my collection as well done very nice and close to be completed cars. The total AMC’​I own now are as follows. 69 AMX, 70 AMX, 72 jav AMX, 72 gremlin X v8, 73 hornet v8, 76 hornet AMX 4sp v8 clone, 79 Spirit GT 401 old race car.Glad to hear there’s more than myself and the few others I know who like AMC’s. It’s always been fun owning the AMC cars,especially when not many people know what they are.

Dad had a 65 Monza that we took fishing a lot. I remember putting some nice fish in that front trunk.

for an instant I thought it was the Chevrolet opala made in Brazil from 1968 to 1992 but the model similar to that would be the model from 1975 to 1979, a beautiful car

Had a 65 monza. Nice cars

Loved those cars! I worked at a service station in those days! You would be surprized how many owners didnt know where the motor was or that it doesnt have antifreeze!

Super clean

Bill Cooper here's you chance to relive the past!

Very nice!

Not a muscle car,do not rewrite history.



Does it leak antifreeze? How’s the water pump?

Didn’t most of them catch fire ???

My 66 monza

Sweet, send us a picture!
