I don't know if they are the same. I just got one for my 68 AMX from Greg at American Motor Haven. Number is 602-371-8722. Good guy to deal with and reasonable.

68 and 69 AMX/Javelin are the same.....1970 AMX/Javelin is different P/N...they operate exactly the same, same pins, but one has longer shaft, sorry can't remember which one, so they are kind of one way interchangable (physically).

Joe can correct me if I'm wrong, IIRC the '70 switch is the shorter shaft. I also think that switch almost operates as a variable speed switch (I haven't used the wipers on my '70 in forever...) rather than an off-low-hi switch.

Forgot to mention....the '70 one is hard to find.

(Joe corrected me! Thanks for the excellent info and photos Joe!)

Paul....you are correct the switch is infinitely variable...and if I remember right you are correct on the 70 switch, I think the parts book straight up replaces the 68/9 with the 70 switch.

I could not find a wiper switch when I converted my '70 AMX to electric 2 years ago. I found out from Eddie Stakes website that the Hornet/ Gremlin 2-speed switch is a good substitute... and it is. Part no. 365 7636.

not sure it is correct but one is listed on e bay. 185$  If you have one that does not work it may be able to be fixed.

70 uses the shorter shaft switch. The 68-69 switch is a bear to find, the 70's have become like hens teeth.

Ok... Here's the differences. This is to dispel any rumors. First, let me say that for all practical purposes all of these switches work the same and have the same connections. With a little work, you can use different year switches for any year car.

This first pic is an overall pic. Starting left to right is an original 70 AMX or Javelin switch. It is short, like a Hornet switch but the stem is shorter than a Hornet switch. The second switch is an original 68/69 AMX or Javelin switch. It is longer than the other switches. Third up is a 70/71 Hornet switch. It is the same length as the 70 switch but the stem is longer so it would have to be cut down to be used on an AMX or Javelin. Last up is a 72 Hornet switch. Although it is very similar to the other switches, it can be easily identified by the stem tube's flat sides. Sorry about the condition of this switch. I had it apart for repairs.





70 AMX or Javelin switch... Part # 355 3761





68/69 AMX or Javelin switch... Part # 360 1621




70/71 Hornet switch..... Part # 361 5829




72 Hornet switch... Part # 365 7636
