CC Outtake: 1st Generation Javelin Found


I stumbled upon this first generation Javelin a few weeks ago when getting some work done on the wife’s van. This first generation Javelin – complete with old white wall tires – was behind the fence adjacent to the repair facility and has been sitting there a few weeks; thankfully the gate was open allowing a better view.

One of the mechanics at the repair shop recently found it hiding somewhere here around Jefferson City.  It is all there, although the engine is currently seized.  In his spare time between working for customers, he has been methodically working to get the engine free again.

I asked a second mechanic about the Javelin.  He did not know if this Javelin was a six-cylinder or V8; however, he said the intent was to revive and enjoy it.
