In Action
Contrary to popular belief, these Dodge Challengers, were not provided as "bodies in white" by the factory, but bought right off the showroom floor and converted to Trans Am cars.When officials pushed on the roof one day, it was discovered that the roof was very thin from acid dipping (against the rules): the team was told that the car was not legal to race that weekend unless the roof was fixed. Frantic pone calls to the factory gave the team permission to go to a local dealership and torch the roof off a car on the showroom floor and weld it to the race car.

1971 American Motors Javelin, ex-Penske, driven this weekend by Fox and Speed TV commentator Mike Joy. Originally built and campaigned by Mark Donohue and Penske as a ’70 model, it was sold to Roy Wood and updated to 71 trim. In '71 it was driven by Vic Elford, Peter Revson, Milt Minter and George Follmer. In 1972 it was driven by George Follmer to the Trans-Am championship
