Mark Donahue, super reace driver / designer was from DELCO....the county right next to Philly.
Oddly enough he was killed in a freak accident by a SEPTA bus on US 1. (that runs the length of the East Coast)
Find of the Day: This 1970 AMC Javelin SST is a Mark Donahue Homologation Edition
Today’s find of the day is a special machine, indeed. This 1970 AMC Javelin SST is a limited-production Mark Donahue Edition, manufactured as a homologation vehicle for legendary team owner Roger Penske and his ace driver Mark Donohue to compete in the Trans Am series. Just 2,501 examples were made to meet the model’s production requirements. The Penske-Donohue pairing was fierce, proving success throughout North America in IndyCar, Can-Am, NASCAR and Trans Am racing. Donohue earned the Penske team’s first Indianapolis 500 victory and eventually went on to race in Formula 1.
According to its codes, this Mark Donohue Edition muscle car left the factory with a 390-cid. V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission, the Ram Air hood, signed front and rear spoilers, black out grille, side stripes, and the Go Pack package. Additional Go Pack goodies include a Positraction rear end, heavy-duty suspension with sway bar, front disc brakes, a larger-capacity cooling system, dual exhaust, a Hurst shifter, and a 140 MPH speedometer.
