AMC AMX & Javelin "Go Pack"
Not to be confused with AMC Rally Pack!
The Go Package
was a optional package of performance and styling for the AMX
and the Javelin. Originally called by AMC "THE PERFORMANCE PACKAGE" (from Dealer Order Forms) It varied from year to year.
YOU COULD ORDER A GO-PACK AND DELETE SOME OF THE ITEMS IN IT LIKE STRIPES.
There is NOTHING IN THE VIN OR METAL DOOR TAG that will indicate whether a
car was originally optioned with Go Pack.
Only a original window sticker,
dealer order form or computer build sheet will indicate whether the car was
a original Go Pack equipped car for authenticity. See more in this file
under production figures

Optional 15 inch styled steel wheels (71-72) Rebel Machine rims.
**Note FUNCTIONAL COWL INDUCTION
WAS A OPTION and not automatically included with Go Package!
No 1974 AMX was produced with "functional" cowl induction. A number of late 1974 AMXs were built with steel hoods as AMC ran out them when production ran into November 1974 instead of stopping July 31st, 1974. To keep the production lines moving, and avoid costly shutdowns, this was the only logical choice.
This consisted of a flapper assembly on top of the
breather, and a
triangular metal shield inside the hood sandwiched between the upper
fiberglass and lower metal frame. The high back part of the hood facing
windshield had a open metal grate for cold air.
