Nice, I called and spoke to the seller. My friend went there with a trailer to pick it up but I guess the seller was confused and was showing my friend his other cars. When asked about the Javelin, he said it was sold. I then saw it re-posted a couple days later, what the heck? Called, and I guess you already picked it up. Good find!

Of all the cars I wish I hadn't sold, and there are at least 20, I think about the 70 BBB 390/4-sp Donohue Javelin at least 3 times per week still. It's been over 8 years now. Nice find, and don't ever sell it you can find another solution.

looking good! Say what you want about drum brakes but my 69 stopped on a dime as long as the system was in proper working order. Once. Then they needed to cool. Drums are better than discs which is why big rig trailers are still drum brakes, they just have a fade "issue" which is why I'm going to scarebird manual discs eventually.

Wow, what a cool Javelin! A member of our club had a BBB 290 Javelin back in the mid 80's and it had a perfect interior and was in great shape. It was for sale for around $900 and many of us passed on it. Wish I could go back in time. Keep posting the photos. That's a great find.
Too many projects!

put on some new headlight bezels and a much nicer grill than the one i had. Thanks Gordy Chilson! Checked all the lights and they are still working. Does anybody have that chrome trim that goes around the bumper on big bad cars??

NOS anodized aluminum BB bumper trim was going for $800.00 years ago. Have not seen any for sale for quite awhile.

Someone was making repo trim, but I don't know if they are anymore.
