Did you notice the sano engine bay? All the wiring was hidden within the front fenderwells. When the car was finally running, it was loaded on a trailer and taken back to Dennis' garage where the final sanding was done. Tom located a N.O.S. hood and a pair of reproduction AMC hoodscoops that were optional only for '69 Javelins. Originally, they were bolted on by dealers and blacked out. Dennis molded the scoops into the hood. Tom and Dennis then applied a covering of PPG Ford Ultra-White paint, and then four coats of clear over them. The guys then sanded and buffed the paint to a mirror finish. Tom then brought the car back to his garage for the final assembly. The original metallic blue interior was changed to black. The seats and headliner were recovered, and Legendary reproduction doorpanels were installed. American Racing Torque Thrust II wheels were ordered -17x11 for the back and 17x7 for the front. The wheels are wrapped in BFG KD tires-P315/35R17 on the rear and P225/45R17 on the front.
To work out a few of the bugs, a shakedown run of 50 miles was done three days prior to leaving for the Power Tour. During the first day of cruising on the Power Tour, Tom broke a rocker-arm stud outside of Memphis, which was easily remedied.
With the attention to detail Tom has given his Javelin, this is definitely one cool Mopar alternative.
