Often called “the best in NASCAR history,” the Dodge Charger Daytona model, with its distinctive high rear wing and extended nose, was created specifically to meet the stock car series' homologation requirement of the day. The car's radical nose reduced drag to 0.28-- impressive even 50 years later--and provided a real advantage at speed. This was the first NASCAR entry to crack the 200 mph barrier, and together with its twin, the Plymouth Superbird, racked up ten NASCAR victories over just two racing seasons. That advantage came to a quick end when the design was banned by the sanctioning body at the conclusion of the second season.
The 1969 Dodge Daytona offered here in Charger red over tufted black vinyl, is powered by its original matching-numbers 440 cubic inch Magnum engine with a 4-barrel carburetor, and backed by its original console-shifted automatic transmission. The entire automobile, including its engine and transmission, has been fully and faithfully restored to museum quality. The results are evident in the more than 210 photographs available on the GarageKeptMotors website, where there's also a short walk-around-and-startup video as well. The engine note is muscle-car music to the ear!
Every aspect of the car shows beautifully. Chrome, paint, interior surfaces (including the wood veneer dash and center-console trim), gauges (including the conservative 150 mph speedometer), emblems, stickers, data tags, undercarriage, and engine bay (including hoses and componentry, all in the proper finishes). No expense was spared in the renovation work. Even the Good Year Eagle racing tires and NASCAR wheels are correct for the model, with a second standard “road set” also included in the sale. Also part of the sale are the car's original build sheet and its window sticker showing a $4,730.65 out-the-door list price (including a $5.40 upcharge for the 3-speed windshield wipe option).
Thank you for looking.
