STRANGE OLDE POLICE PICTURES - 1972 AMC JAVELIN ALABAMA STATE TROOPER

ALABAMA JAVELINS HIGHWAY PATROL HISTORY
In the early 1970s the state of Alabama, experiencing an economic crisis, found they could order budget-based patrol cars from AMC. Pony car Javelins equipped with 401 cubic-inch V8s were powerful enough to meet the Alabama Highway Patrols needs and cheap enough to keep the state happy. In 1971 the Alabama Department of Public Safety ordered 71 Javelins with 61 painted Quick Silver Metallic. The remaining 10 were for the investigative unit and varied in color. For 1972 AMC no longer offered a base Javelin, so the ADPS ordered 62 Javelin SSTs. All were painted Admiral Blue Metallic over Stardust Silver Metallic. All highway patrol Javelins were shifted by three-speed automatic transmissions. Borg-Warner had shifting duty in 1971. A Chrysler Torqueflight A727 was used for 1972.
The Alabama Dept. of Public Safety used the Javelins from 1971 until 1974. A recent Hemmings article notes that only 16 of the ADPS Javelins remain.
