Standard Javelins built by AMI in Melbourne Australia had the 343cu in engine with a 3 speed automatic Torque flite transmission. Imported CKD from Kenosha to AMI and converted to RHD.
Bought from a car yard in Footscray when I first saw it in White duco, I remarked to the owner that it would be more saleable in BLACK. Driving by a few weeks later I spotted it on the lot in Black!!ramjavelin16.jpg (8985 bytes)

The Javelin was running the 401 with the blackjack headers and the torker single plane aluminium 4bbl manifold. Unfortunately the fuel supply was not up to the engine requirements and was cutting out mid track. Even stalling after hitting second we were still pulling very low 14’s.

At the Calder Park Raceway Drags in ’85.   ramjavelin24.jpg (8752 bytes)

Bob Fischer built GMC 471 Supercharger that has been modified with a custom designed and manufactured snout by owner. Fitted with an Airconditioning clutch to be able to engage and disengage the blower rotors dependent on requirements.
The blower manifold is making the blower sit to high so is being rebuilt to sit the blower lower in the valley above a liquid intercooler.
