Brian, I'm pretty sure the '70 Javelin/AMX jack (at least for V-8 cars...does it vary with the tire size?) is 15.5" collapsed, from nut end to screw end (total length). The picture of yours struck me as short, and your measurement confirms that.

Paul

p.s. My apologies for not keeping this post on track...just trying to help identify Typhooner's jack. Now let's help find the elusive, correct '68 jack!

I posted pics a while back about differences in 68/9 and 70 up Scissor Jacks for AMX/Javelin and the the top bracket.  There was a Jack change to shorter arm with the exact same top bracket for frame, they were blue but I have not been able to determine the cut in.  All were the same long length....15-16" when collapsed.  (Sorry, none of these jacks are for sale, I pulled everything from all my cars to take these pics.

Here is pic on date code located on the arm of the jack.



68/9 Jacks


68/9 Jack on Left / 70 up Jack on Right

Note: Thread type and end attachment


70 up  Jack - Some very early were black, most blue, but note the black ones had the top shoe inverted 180 degrees.

This has been very good information.  I have to ask - what is a 1968 jack worth?  I don't see any current or even sold on ebay so that looks to me like they are not very common for some reason.

8G is 1968,July, so this is good for an early 69: Sept, Oct build car.   These were damaged easily and commonly replaced, even on low mile cars, which is why everyone thinks the later blue ones are correct for 68-9.
