1968 AMC Javelin The Breedlove Bonneville Speed Spectacular


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. After poor weather delayed the trials, the cars, teams and Breedlove converged on Bonneville in November. Breedlove piloted all three Javelins in the flying mile, achieving a top speed of 161 MPH in this car, number 343-2, and establishing a new record that stood for years afterward.
