AMC marketing stunt in 1968 was pretty cool, but, then the cars were never used again. This one only has 19 miles on it, some of those were setting the record of 161 miles an hour on Bonneville

In 1968 American Motors sponsored a contest in which 3 1968 Javelins would run at Bonneville to compete for the C Production class record. Dubbed the Bonneville Speed Spectacular, it featured three stock Javelins specially prepared by Craig Breedlove, Edelbrock Engineering and head-porting expert Joe Mondello. Nine entrants, forming three three-man teams, were chosen who met the contest’s selection criteria, which included a small quiz to determine their automotive aptitude.
