So, what is a Big Bad Javelin?
In 1969 and 1970 AMC offered a "Big Bad" color option on its Javelin and AMX.
Three colors were available ,Orange ,Green and Blue.The
paint codes (found on the driver's door tag) are 2A for BB Blue, 3A for BB Orange, and 4A for BB Green. For 1969, the
option included body colored bumpers and special chrome front bumper trim. In 1970, they reverted to all chrome bumpers. Any
engine/transmission combo could be ordered with the Big Bad paint option. Adding the "Mod" package got you the simulated sidepipe
rocker covers,dual hood scoops and rear roof spoiler. These were shagadelic times and other car companies had their own wild
colors also,but the AMC's are the rarest by far.
How rare are they?
How many are left today? That's what I'd like to find out!
